Maintaining Moisturized Locs in Colder Weather

The only thing that is constant is change. As the weather changes with each season, so does the needs of your locs. Particularly, during the winter season your locs will need extra care. Even if you stay indoors, dry air from central heating systems can also affect your locs and contribute to loc dryness, frizz, breakage, and an itchy scalp.

To avoid these problems and maintain healthy/moisturized locs during the winter, follow these simple steps:

Listen to Your Locs

Your locs will always tell you what they need. If you notice an increase in dryness during the harsher winter months, it is usually the result of a lack of moisture. This is a sign that you will need to adjust your current loc moisture routine.

Hydrate From Within

If necessary, increase your daily water intake. You should drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water every day (i.e., If you weigh 150lbs, you will need to drink at least 75oz of water per day). This is important for locs because water moisturizes the scalp from within; helping to eliminate dryness.

Detox, Deep Condition, Moisturizing Shampoo

The change in season is the perfect time to do a detox on your locs. After you detox, shampoo with a moisturizing shampoo (Jrue Locs Mango & Black Castor Oil Shampoo) and deep condition with Jrue Locs Mango & Detoxifying Charcoal Conditioner. These steps will give your locs an amazing head start to a new moisturizing routine for the cooler months.

Moisturize Daily

Moisturize your locs daily with one of Jrue Loc's Moisture Mists. They were created with aloe vera juice and other nourishing ingredients. Do not drench your locs. Just lightly spritz then seal the moisture in with Jrue's Loc Growth Elixir (mixture of herbal & essential oils).

Keep in mind that oil is a sealant, not a moisturizer. You need to moisturize first, then seal the moisture in with oil for best results.

Keep Locs Covered at Night

To prevent breakage and lint buildup, wear a satin or silk scarf while asleep every night. This will also help keep your locs soft and moisturized.
