I get this question quite a bit and it’s okay.
How often should I wash and twist it?
Well, I always start out by explaining there are several types of locked folks. There’s the client who love their locs neat and groomed all the time. Oftentimes, this client may come back every week or two. And then there’s the client who may come every every three weeks to get interlocking (which normally last for about 3 months) and then there’s several in between clients who may go back and forth.
I had locs for 8 years and I always would wash every week but twist once a month.
The answer to this question would be that, “everyone is different.” And the beautiful thing about loc extensions is that you don’t have any special instructions just because you have them. The same rules to traditionally grown locs applies to my loc extensions.
When you spend the few hours with me for your loc extension service, I absolutely love talking about your journey and educate you on all you’ll need to know!
