Loc Journey

Healthy Locs & Natural Hair Routine

I started my loc journey with my sister on June 1, 2018. We took a trip to Jamaica after my graduation in May and the decision was made shortly after we returned home. My mom already had Sisterlocks and I was tired of worrying with my hair while being sick.

I take so many medications and I try to make sure I eat, drink, and maintain healthy routines. People always comment and ask

“How do you get your hair so thick?” or “How does it grow so fast?”

Here’s what I use and routines I follow to maintain thick, healthy hair

Water is such a vital part of almost every function the body does. I drink plenty of water (maybe 7 cups a day) to make sure my hair, pores, and body are properly hydrated. I also attempt to eat at least 1-2 dark-green leafy vegetables in every meal to promote hair growth.

I take 3 Hair, Skin, and Nails pills a day, along with a pro-biotic vitamin to aid with my growth & gut health. To prevent Stevie Wonder edges, I take a small amount of Castor Oil and rub into my edges every 3 days or so at bedtime.

I’m still a baby in the loc journey, but this is what I’ve done for an entire year and simple seems to work the best. Water, Roux, and hair oils are all I use. When I’m low on Marlie’s Hair Oil, I’ll mix a few drops of Lavender essential oil, olive, sage, almond, grapeseed, and avocado oil in a bottle and put on my scalp.

I do not shower with a cap/plastic bag because my hair loves the moisture. Silk bonnets and scarves also help maintain moisture and prevent breakage.

  1. Water
  2. Kale, Spinach, Greens Mix (Dark-green leafy vegetables)
  3. Hair Skin & Nail Supplement
  4. Roux Leave-in conditioner spray
  5. Marlie Mahogany’s Natural Hair Oil
  6. Regular loc maintenance (Shampoo, Condition, Style)
  7. Leave your hair alone
  8. Moisture (Steamy Showers)
  9. Silk bonnets/ scarves

I hope these tips help! Thanks for reading (:
