Benefits of the Dr Locs Pre - Cleanse

Where oh, where to begin?!

Dr Locs Pre-Cleanse is a must have product if you have locs, or are considering locs. The benefits of this Pre-Cleanse are ones your locs just won't be able to do without. It’s incredibly soothing for the scalp and it cleanses and nourishes those roots. It’s the product you want if you want to keep your hair clean after a workout, a swim and before shampooing for the ultimate maintenance experience. The pre-cleanse is, to put it simply, our safe version of the ACV rinse. In this article we’ll get into exactly how the Pre-Cleanse works and how your locs will benefit from its superpower goodness. 

How All Styles of Locs Can Benefit from Dr Locs’ Pre-Cleanse

Dr. Locs’ Pre-Cleanser combines a special blend of cleansing and softening natural ingredients for a deep refreshing cleanse before shampooing. Here’s how your locs will reap the benefits of this buildup-free product:

Naturally Removes Trapped Oil and Dirt

The pre-cleanse was designed to be used before shampooing, or when you’re in your early phases of locs when washing is not permitted. This solution will pull up trapped oil and dirt that has naturally accumulated over the weeks. Ingredients like jojoba oil, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, and witch hazel will help break down excess sebum oil accumulating around the scalp and new growth without drying out the hair or leaving any grease behind. It’ll basically make your shampoo that much more effective and golden. It’ll break things down before your shampoo, so you won’t need as much shampoo and it’ll all wash out easily. 

Removes Product Buildup from Scalp and Locs

The Pre-Cleanse solution will remove product build-up from the scalp, new growth area and locs if you’ve used products in the past that have caused buildup.  If you have a lot of buildup and you use the pre-cleanse it will make things look worse before it gets better. Be aware that things will come up, but keep working with it until it all really comes up and out. 

The sea salt and apple cider vinegar, mixed with the powerful and natural ingredients mentioned above all work together at breaking down buildup and brings your scalp and locs back to life. What’s important here is that our essential oils balance out the effects of ACV, so you don’t create trouble for your scalp or hair. ACV is truly strong stuff, and, when not used correctly, can create problems - not unresolvable disasters, but problems for sure. 

Has Been used By Dr Locs Fans to Extend Washes

The pre-cleanse was made for, as the name implies, a pre-wash product. It helps lift up dirt and oil from the roots and scalp, which is why so many people have used it as their go-to product between washes after a high-sweat activity. We love this sort of feedback, discovering new benefits of our products - and we just want to put the option out there for you. Let’s just say, it's a recommendation from our clients, but not directly from our locticians. It’s up to you to decide how you want to make use of your pre-cleanse bottle. 


There are several benefits to our buildup free pre-cleanse. It’s meant for using during the weeks and months one shouldn’t wash their baby locs, or as a solution for your scalp and new growth before shampooing. Spray liberally in areas where build-up, excess oil or dirt is present. Take a cloth or finger to move the pre-cleanse around in the area to pull up the flakage. Rinse until water runs clear and then wash locs with Dr. Locs’ Yasin Shampoo thoroughly. And most of all, enjoy thoroughly!
