6 Easy Tips for Maintaining Short Loc Updo Styles
- Keep Your loc Clean: One of the most important steps in maintaining Short Loc Updo Styles is to keep them clean. When washing your dreads, you’ll want to use a shampoo that has a low residue and can take care of your scalp at the same time. We recommend Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner.
- Moisturize Your Short loc: The key to having healthy-looking locs is to keep them moisturized. You can do this so many ways! One good option is to use hair oil that can penetrate your strands to hydrate and seal in moisture. You can also boost moisture with an oil, like Love Beauty and Planet Hope and Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-in-1 Benefit Oil. This product can help condition your locs and add shine
- Dry Them Properly: Drying your Short Loc Updo Styles is super-important for keeping them in good shape. When you’re done washing and rinsing, squeeze out as much water as possible. Your goal is to have as little water left as you can. Then, while your locs are still damp, pat them dry and allow them to air-dry.
- To Trim or Not to Trim: Here’s the rub with short loc: To keep them as short as you want, they’ll eventually need to be trimmed. The important thing to remember here is to wait a little bit before trimming your Short Loc Updo Styles. When you first loc your hair, over the next few months or even year, your dreads will shorten as they get tighter. It’s also not the best idea to trim locs that aren’t mature, i.e. tight and grown out a bit. Because this process can take a while, we don’t recommend trimming your hair for the first six months to a year, depending on your hair type and how quickly your locs mature. If you trim too early, you can risk your style fraying at the ends.
- Scalp Care With loc: Not all scalps love locs. But, lucky for you, short loc tend to make for a happier scalp due to the fact that they aren’t as heavy as long ones. The heavier your hair, the more stress you’ll put on your scalp. Keeping your scalp happy and healthy is key! So, pamper your scalp with weekly scalp massages, and make sure when you’re washing your locs to wash your scalp, too.
- Styling Short locs: We love how versatile short locs can be! You can wear them down in a cool pixie cut, or, if your locs are a little longer, you can create buns, ponytails, and even style in some waves. Wavy dreadlocks are fun, and they’re great for an overnight style. Starting with very lightly damp dreadlocks, create several three-strand braids. Secure the braids and let your locs dry as you sleep. When you wake up, take out the hair ties and rock those wavy locs.
