How To Retwist Your Locs

Retwisting your locs involves re-twisting the hair at the roots and along the length of the lock to maintain its shape and prevent unraveling. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to retwist your locs:

  1. Prepare your hair: Wash and condition your hair, then let it air-dry or use a hair dryer on a low heat setting. Moisturize your hair with a leave-in conditioner or oil.

  2. Divide your hair: Divide your hair into sections, using clips or rubber bands, to make it easier to work with.

  3. Apply a twisting product: Apply a twisting product, such as a twisting gel, wax, or butter, to each section of hair. The product will help to hold the hair in place and prevent unraveling.

  4. Retwist the roots: Start at the roots of each section and gently twist the hair, working your way down the length of the lock. Be sure to twist the hair tightly and evenly, so that the lock retains its shape.

  5. Secure the ends: Once you have retwisted the entire lock, secure the ends with a rubber band or twist tie. Repeat the process for each section of hair.

  6. Allow the hair to dry: After retwisting your locs, allow your hair to air-dry or use a hair dryer on a low heat setting. Be sure to avoid touching or manipulating the hair while it is still wet, as this can cause unraveling.

It is important to be gentle when retwisting your locs, as pulling or tugging on the hair can cause damage. Retwisting your locs should be done every 4-8 weeks, depending on your hair type and care routine.
