Detoxing Your Locs: The Complete Guide

Detoxing Your Locs: The Complete Guide

Hey, loc fam!

Detoxing your locs should be one of your top priorities if you want to continue maintaining healthy locs that are free of buildup, itchiness, and dandruff. There are many different kinds of natural products you can use to cleanse your locs, but none of them work as well as an actual detox that you can do a few times a year to get rid of all the buildup in your hair and scalp.

How Do I Know When It’s Time to Detox My Locs?

If you’re experiencing dull, grayish locs or if your locs are feeling heavy, it’s a good idea to detoxify. This may be because of the buildup in products you use regularly, or perhaps it’s just time for a spring cleaning. To see if detoxification is right for you, ask yourself these questions

Are my locs/twists dry?  

Is my scalp tender and/or flaky? 

Am I using a lot of products daily?

Do I have white buildup in my locs?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you should consider giving your locs a good detox. We recommend detoxing your locs every 2-4 months as a general rule of thumb. Your hair and scalp will thank you for it!

How Do I Detox My Locs?

At Locsanity, we’re about all things that make your locs, hair and scalp healthy and rejuvenated! It’s no surprise that we created the perfect detox for your locs. Our Dreadlock Deep Clean Detox is plant-based, comes in a powder form, and doesn’t contain apple cider vinegar like other detoxes. You mix 1-2 tablespoons of the detox powder with water and fully submerge your locs into the mixture to soak for 20-30 minutes. To make the process even easier, we have an inflatable basin that you can use to soak your locs in and give them the full spa experience!

Our Inflatable Deep Cleansing Soak Basin makes detoxing your locs effortless. The basin provides secure support for your head and shoulders and a built-in inflatable headrest. It’s made of eco-friendly PVC, and the hose has a stopper at the end to control water flow. With our detox and inflatable basin, you won’t have any problem keeping your hair clean, healthy, and shiny. In addition to detoxing, we recommend moisturizing your hair and scalp to prevent dryness and breakage. You can find moisturizers for your locs here.

Locs are a great way to rock your natural hair, but sometimes you need a deep clean. The detoxification process is vital to keep your locs healthy and free of buildup. 

Now you have all of the information you need to detox your hair safely and naturally.
