Retwisting locs is one of the most important and sensitive maintenance methods when it comes to our locs.
One of the many lessons we learn with locs is the beauty of balance. Too much of anything (even the great stuff) can be harmful and damaging. We love the ‘middle way,’ and it’s our belief that all great things come in moderation. That being said, how frequently we twist our locs is a key step in maintaining healthy locs as they grow. Overtwisting, or under twisting our locs can be damaging to our locs, and can leave us with some maintenance issues down the line. If you want to achieve the locs of your dreams, the products you use and how often you twist is everything (or nearly everything.)
How often should I retwist my locs?
You’re not going to love this answer, but everyone’s hair is different. It’s hard for us to tell you how long your retwist should last without knowing what loc phase you're in at the moment, the style and texture of your hair, and your daily habits and lifestyle.That being said, a typical retwist should/could last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. But again, it will depend on how you take care of your locs.
Your retwist can last longer, it can even last for months, if you make all the right moves to make your retwist last longer.
How to Make your Retwist Last Longer
If you really want your retwist to last longer, there are a few steps you can take to keep your retwists lasting beyond your average timeline.
Extending the time between each retwist will depend on how cautious and aware we are of our locs and our habits. Some of us don’t have the time or patience to pay attention to every little detail, while others love having that kind of control over their locs and their retwists.
However long your retwist will last is up to you and your maintenance routine. Follow a routine that works best for your dreams and your lifestyle habits. Sometimes we’ll have to readjust our expectations, or readjust our habits to get the results we truly desire. Go with what makes you feel happiest, we’re big fans of self care!
