How to Maintain Locs
One of Benjamin's favourite products for locs maintenance is the African Formulas Super Grow Hair Gel, as it uses natural ingredients to strengthen the hair and promote healthy growth.
A few other popular products include the Jamaican Mango and Lime Resistant Formula Locking Hair Gel (£7), which provides a strong hold without the added product buildup; and Murray's Gel Loc-Lock (£7).
Loc maintenance also includes making sure your hair is properly hydrated, moisturised, and styled. Achieving optimal loc maintenance varies person to person, but basic hair-care rules still apply. Make sure that you are hydrated and drinking water, give your hair clarifying treatments, and alongside using water-based products and oils when doing your hair at home, make sure to incorporate professional hydrating treatments when visiting a salon.
