There are various styles of locs and twists that appear to be carefree. Dreadlocks don’t need to be brushed and require very little to no trimming. While other hairstyles require combing to put hair back in place, tucking the hair back into the dreads is part of the maintenance routine. Contrary to some people’s belief, clean dreads lock up and tighten faster than dirty, soiled locs.
Most people who wear this style notice their locs look better when proper maintenance of cleaning and palm-rolling/latching is a part of their styling routine.
If your stylist is not maintaining your look, it is your job to keep them twisted. Caring for your twists requires routine maintenance that involve shampooing and conditioning, re-twisting before bed at night depending on the style and moisturizer to help control the twists. Leave-in conditioners are essential when wearing twists. This controls frizzes and holds hair together for a smooth, coil twist.
In order to get the desired style when your hair is twisted, a haircut will provide a foundation for the shape and silhouette that will support twists.
The product selection is far too large to name one that will fit your type and texture of hair. To minimize buying unnecessary products, you should purchase your products from a hair care professional who specializes in these kinds of looks. Always remember to protect your beautiful tresses, be it locs or twists, by avoiding cotton pillow cases or other products that will absorb moisturizers when sleeping. Silk or satin are highly recommended. For more information, contact me.
