Drlocs’ Pre-Cleanse Breakdown

Drlocs’ Pre-Cleanse Breakdown

DrLocs’ Pre-Cleanser is designed to remove build-up, trapped oil and dirt from the scalp and roots. DrLocs has researched and tested the best natural ingredients for cleansing and nourishing the scalp and new growth before shampooing the locs, or after a heavy sweaty workout routine.

The Pre Cleanse includes:

  • Sea salt

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Jojoba oil

  • Tea tree oil

  • Eucalyptus oil

  • Rosewater

  • Witch hazel a

  • And natural preservatives

Now, let’s get a feel for how these ingredients work at keeping your scalp and roots feeling tingly clean.

Sea salt

Sea salt was selected as a main ingredient in Dr Loc’s pre-Cleanse for its antiseptic, antifungal properties. Sea salt will work at both stripping away any excess oil or dirt from the locs, while creating friction for further knotting and twisting.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar was made notorious in the deep cleansing world for its low pH quality. It’s low pH trait aids in removing wax, dirt, and soap residue from your locs. However, when using this ingredient as a homemade remedy for your locs, be sure to handle with care. Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely powerful and when not used correctly will strip away far too much from your scalp and roots, leaving your locs dry and brittle. Brittle locs and roots often lead to breakage and frizz. Make sure to do adequate research if you’re brewing your own beauty products.

Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is so good for your locs and scalp that we actually took the time to write an entire bio for this lovely ingredient. In short, Jojoba oil works at naturally boosting your scalp Sebum oil production. Many who experience dandruff, or dry scalp, will generally have low Sebum present. Jojoba oil works at hydrating your scalp and locs, and balancing out your scalp’s pH levels for a healthy scalp and new growth.

Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil works as an antifungal, anti inflammatory agent. So, if you are trying to spread out your washing sessions, tea tree oil will work at fighting off the fungus that may grow due to an overproduction of sebum from the scalp. Similar to Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil is an extremely powerful ingredient and should be used with care. Using too much of this ingredient can dry out the skin and scalp, causing more harm than care, but it’s certainly an ingredient to cherish in your oil collection.

Eucalyptus oil

Eucalyptus oil is an antiseptic oil which can be used to relieve a dry and itchy scalp. This refreshing oil can also stimulate new hair growth by stimulating hair follicles and therefore, increasing blood flow to the scalp and roots. The more blood that makes it to your scalp, the healthier your hair will grow.


Rosewater, besides for its anti-depressant scent, works at moisturizing your scalp and roots. Similarly to Eucalyptus oil, Rosewater promotes more blood circulation to the scalp for stronger healthier hair growth, while reducing scalp inflammation and dandruff.

Witch hazel

Another one of nature’s best, Witch Hazel heals the scalp and reduces scalp irritation. Some believe, Witch Hazel can be used to prevent excess hair loss. Witch Hazel works as a natural astringent, clearing away any of that excess build-up clinging to the inside of locs. It is also noted for tightening the locs, and great if you’re ready for a re-twist.
