Retwisting Dreads & locs can be tricky because there are so many products available. Here are some of the products you can use to retwist locs, some of which are homemade and others store-bought. We have done our research and also asked experts about the products to use on our dreadlocks. So here are some of the best products to retwist your locs.
When I discuss locs with my friends, I tell them that products won’t work on loc hair. You don’t have to worry about products because your hair locs will be a natural process. It is completely up to you whether to use products (natural or otherwise) on your locs.
If this is so, why would you use them? Well, there are just three reasons why you might want to use products to retwist your locs:
Preference – Some people may prefer a sleek, ‘layered’ look;
Shape – by adding some products, you can keep the structure of your locs in a particular way, which is what may help shape your locs.
Glow – products can add some shine to your locs as well as adding moisture.
You may want to try a few of the products that I’ve used and love, and you may also be aware of a couple of brands that make products for retwisting locs that you may find useful.
Since hair locking has different philosophies, I’m going to present a few options for everyone.
If I am buying products for my locs, I always make sure that they are oil-based or water-based. Your locs will not accumulate buildup from oil-based or water-based products. Aside from that, I check to ensure that there are no harmful ingredients in the product.
