The Key to Thicker/ Healthier Locs!

Are you tired of having thin and lifeless locs? Do you dream of having thick and voluminous locs that turn heads wherever you go? Well, you're in luck! In this blog post, we will be discussing some tried and tested methods on how to get thicker locs. So, grab a cup of tea and let's dive right in!

1. Patience is key: One of the most important things to remember when trying to get thicker locs is to be patient. Growing thicker locs takes time and effort, so don't expect overnight results. Embrace the journey and enjoy the process.

2. Nourish your locs from within: Just like any other part of your body, your locs need proper nutrition to grow thick and healthy. Make sure you're eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and proteins. Additionally, consider taking supplements like biotin or vitamin E, which are known to promote hair growth.

3. Keep your scalp clean and healthy: A healthy scalp is the foundation for thick and strong locs. Regularly cleanse your scalp to remove any buildup or dirt that may hinder hair growth. Use a gentle shampoo and avoid harsh chemicals that can strip your hair of its natural oils. We recommend Jrue's Mango & Black Castor Oil moisturizing shampoo.

4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: Dry locs are more prone to breakage and thinning. Keep your locs moisturized by using an aloe vera juice/ water-based moisturizer or aloe vera gel. Apply it to your locs regularly to keep them hydrated and prevent them from becoming brittle. We recommend misting your locs daily with Jrue's aloe vera juice based Liquid Love Loc Moisture Mist.

5. Avoid excessive manipulation: Constant twisting, pulling, or styling can weaken your locs and lead to thinning. Be gentle with your locs and avoid excessive manipulation. Opt for protective styles that don't put too much stress on your hair.

6. Regularly trim your locs: Trimming your locs regularly helps get rid of split ends and promotes healthy growth. Schedule regular appointments with a professional loctician to ensure your locs are in tip-top shape.

7. Massage your scalp: Massaging your scalp stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting hair growth. Use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp in circular motions for a few minutes each day. Not only will it help your locs grow thicker, but it's also a relaxing self-care practice.

8. Protect your locs while sleeping: Friction from your pillowcase can cause breakage and thinning. Invest in a satin or silk pillowcase to reduce friction and protect your locs while you sleep. Alternatively, you can wrap your locs in a satin scarf or bonnet before bed.

9. Be mindful of your loc maintenance routine: Avoid using heavy products or excessive amounts of product on your locs, as they can weigh them down and make them appear thinner. Stick to lightweight oils or gels that won't leave residue or buildup. We recommend the following:

Remember, everyone's loc journey is unique, so what works for one person may not work for another. Experiment with different methods and find what works best for your locs. With consistency and patience, you'll be well on your way to achieving the thick and luscious locs of your dreams. Happy loc journey!
