Some of you ladies and men out there may be wondering how to take extra fine care of your locs. While it is essential to keep your locs healthy and cared for with the right natural products, there are also some priceless product-free techniques to maintaining a clean and majestic appearance.

As many of you may already know, your locs require some big time TLC, and hey, why shouldn't they, after all, it is your body, and if you’re not going to take tender care of yourself than who will?

Its rewarding and important to treat yourself with patience and gentleness. Some of us are quick to forget how contagious respect is in the hustle of our demanding lives. Your body will have physical reactions to stress and anxiety. Breakage, dandruff, and hair loss are some of the many typical side effects of anxiety. So, learn to take a step back and reflect on your behavior that may not always be positive and optimistic, and decide if your response is really necessary, or even worth it, we know your locs wont think so!

Sleeping with a silk night scarf to avoid breakage is another product-free way to take care of your locs. A silk scarf will protect your locs from the damage that your sheets and pillows may be causing to your locs. A silk scarf will also help retain the good moisture which nourishes your scalp and hair.

Massaging your scalp is not only relaxing and pleasing, but it also stimulates hair growth. All it takes is five minutes during some down time to keep your locs healthy and your fingers busy and your mind at ease.
