Wondering what a locs detox is and how to do it right?
If you haven’t been using Dr Locs’ buildup-free line, then you may have discovered the unfortunate sign of buildup in your hair. However, even if you are using a buildup-free line you may still feel the urge to do a deep clean detox. Maybe you’ve had an over-production of sebum oil, you’re having a high-heat workout week, or you just want to do everything you can to keep your locs healthy and awesome. If this sounds like you, then read on how we would recommend getting that deeper clean.
In general, we do not recommend going for an ACV rinse, since it can cause a lot of problems down the line. If you are going to do it, it shouldn’t be done more than once a year. Apple Cider Vinegar is incredibly powerful and should only be used by those who have done a lot of research and really know how it works on the hair and scalp.
Since there has been so much hype and demand for a clarifying shampoo, Dr Locs’ decided to work with a professional to find the perfect balance of ingredients that wouldn’t damage your scalp or hair. Our Sweet Peppermint Clarifying Shampoo formula was designed to smoothly remove residue and old minerals that could later cause dull non-responsive hair. It’s meant to naturally and gently cleanse and restore the hair. But again, it should only be used once or twice a month but not more, unless you’re dealing with an extreme case. Read up on the benefits of our clarifying shampoo and how your locs can benefit from this nourishing mixture.
Pre-Cleanse Buildup Removal Services
If you’re just itching for that active ACV, then go for the Dr Locs’ Pre-Cleanse which will also bring up any residue or buildup. It’s safe to use on locs and loose hair, and can be used repeatedly throughout the week. Many use our pre-cleanse post workout to cleanse the scalp from any dirt or sweat from their high-heat activities. When using the pre-cleanse to bring up buildup, you will notice a lot coming up from your locs. Follow up directly with the Yasin Shampoo to remove whatever came up and then some. You may want to shampoo 2-3 times to really get everything out.
If you’re not sure if you should detox your locs, then you can always ask a professional who can take a look at your locs and identify what kind of state they’re in.
