How to take care of your locs

Most people prefer to wear hair extensions on their heads. With economic development, people are opting for 100% human hair locs that are softer and more naturally comfortable.

Human hair locs are not only durable and cost-effective, but they are also suitable for dyeing and styling in various ways. This makes them an indispensable accessory in the fashion industry, something everyone deserves to have.

However, simply attaching a loc is not enough. To ensure your locs stays durable, attractive, and natural-looking, proper care is essential. This blog provides several tips on locs care, aiming to enhance your locs journey.

Taking care of locs requires regular maintenance to keep them clean, moisturized, and defined.

Retwist regularly: Retwist your locs every 2-4 weeks to keep them neat and defined.

Once the locs is attached to human hair, it behaves similarly to our natural hair, being influenced by various environmental factors.

Over time, the extensions may encounter various issues such as thinning at the attachment points or hair tangling. Therefore, regular maintenance is necessary. For example, it's recommended to tidy up your hair every 2-4 weeks to keep it neat and clear. After all, you wouldn't want to go out with messy hair, would you?

Wash carefully: Wash your locs with a gentle shampoo, working from the roots to the ends. Avoid using harsh chemicals or excessive water.

We often clean our own hair to achieve cleanliness and care. Similarly, for the locs extensions we attach, we need to care for them just like our natural hair, which involves washing. However, unlike washing our own hair, since the attached hair extensions do not have follicles to supply nutrients and maintain health like natural hair does, we need to be extra careful in caring for them.

For example, when washing, use a gentle shampoo and wash from root to tip. Avoid using harsh chemicals or excessive water to prevent damaging the extensions.

The care process requires patience and attention to prevent accidentally washing out the extensions.

Condition deeply: Use a deep conditioning treatment once a month to moisturize and nourish your locs.

In addition to daily meticulous care, it's important to deeply moisturize your extensions each month to nourish them and maintain a natural, healthy appearance.
Typically, we recommend using specialized hair treatment oils to protect and moisturize your hair and extensions. Some people opt for a more economical approach using water for maintenance.

However, for optimal results, we recommend using hair treatment oils because they effectively keep your extensions soft, smooth, and natural-looking. Apply the treatment oil carefully from root to tip, thoroughly caring for your locs extensions.

Keep them moisturized: Use a leave-in conditioner or hair butter to keep your locs hydrated and soft.

In fact, to further maintain hair moisture, you can use leave-in conditioner or hair oil to keep the hair hydrated and soft. Unlike vigorously rubbing as when washing your own hair, leave-in conditioner is gentler on our extensions. While it may not clean as thoroughly, it preserves the condition of the extensions better and helps prevent loosening.

Keeping the hair soft and moisturized also contributes to the longevity of the extensions, ensuring they remain beautiful and fashionable while looking natural.

rotect from the sun: Use a hat or hair product with SPF to protect your locs from the sun's damaging UV rays.

The extensions we attach differ from our natural hair in that they lack nourishing follicles. Therefore, they are more susceptible to damage and effects from exposure to sun and wind compared to our own hair.

As a result, we also recommend avoiding prolonged exposure of the extensions to UV rays to prevent rapid evaporation of moisture from the hair, which can lead to dry and less smooth hair texture.

You can protect your hair from sun exposure by wearing hats with UV protection or using hair care products that have UV protection properties.

Avoid harsh products: Avoid using products containing alcohol, sulfates, or parabens, which can dry out and damage your locs.

Try to avoid any harsh liquids coming into contact with your wig. Products containing alcohol, sulfates, or parabens can dry out your skin and damage your extensions.

When you're out at gatherings wearing your carefully styled wig, there's a chance you might spill alcohol due to excitement. Try your best to prevent alcohol from touching your wig, as it can potentially ruin your intricate hairstyle and harm your expensive 100% human hair locs.

Be gentle when combing: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to gently detangle your locs,starting from the ends.

Even after attaching the wig, it shouldn't be roughly combed. Wigs are generally interwoven with your natural hair. While they may not easily come apart when you pull on them forcefully, long-term neglect or using a narrow-toothed comb instead of a wide-toothed one can lead to gradual loosening due to constant tension. This could eventually cause the wig to break while combing one day. Therefore, it's important to gently comb your wig regularly to maintain its integrity.

Trim regularly: Trim your locs every 6-12 months to prevent split ends and breakage.

Trimming your hair every 6-12 months helps prevent split ends and breakage. Yes, as you can see, the extensions we attach can also develop issues like split ends and dryness over time, despite regular use and care. Therefore, for hair extensions that are no longer healthy and cannot be restored through maintenance, we recommend trimming to keep them clean and tidy.

If you're unsure about trimming your extensions yourself, we suggest visiting a hair salon where a stylist can help you with trimming and caring for your extensions.


Consult a professional: If you're new to locs or need guidance, consult a professional loctician or stylist for advice and maintenance.
