Locs/Braids/Twists

For mature locs it is important to keep them moisturized and clean. We suggest using Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Soft Clarifying Shampoo followed by Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Drops Hair Moisture. Blended Beauty’s Volcanic Clean Mask and Baka Natural-Laxer Plus are also great for cleaning mature locks. For daily maintenance, we like Blended Beauty’s All Natural Hair and Scalp Oil, Blended Beauty’s Butter Me Up!, and Long Lovely Locks Olive Glaze Pomade and Coconut Hair Milk.


For Braids we like Blended Beauty’s Kick for Curls for moisture. If shampooing your braids, we suggest using Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Soft Clarifying shampoo followed by Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Drops Hair Moisture.

For sewn-in weaves we suggest using natural hair. It’s important to keep your natural hair moisturized. We like Blended Beauty’s Kick for Curls for moisture. If shampooing your weave, we suggest using Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Soft Clarifying shampoo followed by Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Drops Hair Moisture. Make sure your natural hair dries as it may start to smell if kept wet for long periods of time.

For Twists you want to use a product with wax like qualities that will hold and shine. Some products to try are Long Lovely Locks Curls de Light, Buttercup, Sunflower Pudding, Ginger Gel-O, and Coco Light.

Always check with your loctition or beautician before shampooing locs or braids.

Transitioning

When transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, hair is prone to break, particularly at the spot where the relaxed hair begins. To combat this, hair needs extra moisturizing. We suggest starting with Long Lovely Locks’ Honey Silk – Pre-Shampoo Hair Mask which helps to protect the hair. Follow this up with Long Lovely Locks’ Green Tea Hair Cleanse. Next, deep condition with Blended Beauty’s Curl Quenching Conditioner. You want to make sure hair is moisturized so follow up with Blended Beauty’s Butter Me Up! or Long Lovely Locks’ Buttercup or Curly Custard.

Every once in a while you need to clarify. We suggest Long Lovely Locks’ Rain Soft Clarifying Shampoo followed by Blended Beauty’s Curl Quenching Conditioner or Curls Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea Mask.

For deep conditioning, we suggest Curls Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea Mask or Blended Beauty’s Curl Quenching conditioner..

We would suggest giving yourself a hot oil treatment at least twice monthly using Blended Beauty’s All Natural Hair and Scalp Oil as well as using Long Lovely Locks’ Herbal Growth Oil at least three times a week. You may also find Blended Beauty’s Herbal Reconditioning Treatment helpful to use monthly.

Transitioning hair is fragile so make sure to use a wide tooth comb when combing. Also avoid brushing as this can put stress on hair. Try using Blended Beauty Kick for Curls or Curls Quenched Curls Moisturizer to moisten your natural hair before combing.

We suggest starting with Long Lovely Locks’ Honey Silk – Pre-Shampoo Hair Mask which helps to protect the hair and prevent split ends. Wash hair with Long Lovely Locks’ Green Tea Hair Cleanse and follow up with Long Lovely Locks’ Green Tea Hair Gloss. Leave this on for 30 minutes to an hour. Follow this up with Long Lovely Locks’ Ginger Gel-O and/or Long Lovely Locks’ Coconut Hair Milk. If styling doing a braid-out or doing a wet set we suggest Long Lovely Locks’ Braidout Boyaux for braid-outs and Long Lovely Locks’ Curls de Light for wet sets.
