Taking Care of This Hairstyle at Home
The most important aspect to keeping this hairstyle in top form, as well as keeping your own hair healthy while you wear it, is to regularly clean and moisturize your scalp. Shamone recommends using a daily scalp oil and regular in-salon maintenance routines for her clients. This process should keep your hairstyle looking gorgeous for about four to five weeks.
Shamone also points out that it’s very important to wrap your hair at night with a silk or satin bonnet. Stay away from cotton pillowcases. Locs attract lint and cotton pillowcases will embed lint into your hairstyle.
