Everything You Need to Know About Mature Locs

Before you reach the mature phase you might have some doubts or questions about what it may look and feel like. You may be wondering if mature locs get frizzy, what are mature locs exactly, and if the locs get thicker or smaller as they mature. These are all valid and common questions many have. Let’s explore these questions and uncover some answers. 

Frizzy Mature Locs

Frizzy mature locs are much more common when one has really fine hair if they're not palm rolling all the time. However, the hair won't be as frizzy in the mature phase as they were during the early stages of locs. All hair textures though, will experience frizz around the roots when the new growth comes in. That’s because you actually have all stages of locs in your hair at once, the baby stage lives near the scalp, which is usually the frizzy stage. If you have frizz, simply re-twist until the end.

Do Locs Get Smaller or Thicker During the Mature Phase?

To put it simply, locs get smaller not bigger during this stage. The only way to achieve thicker locs at this point would be to try and join locs together to achieve thicker locs. Of course you should speak to a professional loctician before doing this to make sure your roots can handle the shift and the weight and if this change is right for you. 

Your locs may also drop more. Some may experience hair loss, not everyone but some will experience this. It can be due to age, health, diet and many other factors. Your hair can be less fluffy during this stage compared to the other stages, like the teenage phase, and can feel more slender.
