I am now approaching my 2 year loc anniversary and I am very happy with how my hair has grown and how I have grown in this journey! I decided that in 2016, I will take a more serious role in creating a routine with my hair as far as moisturizing and growth.
One thing I have not been able to master completely, is keeping my locs moisturized. That will be my first project because I would like to add more of a natural shine to my locs; sometimes I look at them and they look so dry. So, I’ve been doing some reseach and came up with the following plan for my hair
Scalp Oil: JBCO+Jojoba+Tea Tree oil (Tues and Thurs)
Loc Moisturizing oil: Coconut oil+Water and Rosemary+Lavender (Mon, Wed, Fri)
I am going to do deep washes every month-month and a half when my hair is really dirty or smelly, and to get the product build up out. Since I work out on a regular basis, I will possibly sporadically rinse my hair out so it doesn’t smell sweaty. One thing I have started to do and will continue to do is condition my hair also. It has really brought the life back to my hair and gives it a soft and rejuvenated look after a wash.
I will try this out starting at the beginning of the year and see how it works out. I will also be looking to retouch my roots with color in the next couple of months (still debating but we will see lol).
And that’s about it! I am going to try and take a more simple/low maintenance approach to my hair next year. Maintaining locs can be tedious depending on your regimen, but based on my personality, I cannot have an overly complicated routine to keeping my hair on #Fleek (LOL). I think this plan will benefit me pretty well, because it is mainly a water and oil regimen, which are two of the most important things in growing strong, healthy hair!
What are your hair goals for 2016??
