Gift Set for Men If you are a naturalist or you have loved ones who are, you may be wondering what would be the perfect gift for them this holiday season. Here is a variety of natural oils, hair products and more, that are perfect for gift giving.

Natural Gift Sets

Some people would rather get something natural, even if it’s not expensive, than to get an expensive gift that will just sit around and gather dust. Finding the right choice of gifts for someone who have locs or natural hair, for example, is not that difficult. The only challenging part is finding high-quality natural gifts.

Moisturizing Gift Sets

Moisturizing your locs or natural hair is paramount, and at some point the moisturizing oils are going to run out. You can give your loved one a special gift set of natural oils this Christmas. There is no doubt that they would greatly appreciate it.

Loving Your Locs: The Secret to Beautiful Long Locs

long thick locsI still can’t believe how far I’ve come along this journey of growing my locs. I’m almost at the 4 year mark of my locs anniversary. I know some people thought I was going to cut them off by now, but to their disappointment, I didn’t. I’m still learning as I trod along this journey, and I’m excited to share my newfound knowledge with you.

I must admit that the older my locs get, the more easier they are to maintain. I don’t have much loose hair anymore, because I normally palm roll them whenever I do my retwist.

Caring For Your Locs

To keep them healthy and strong, you just have to be consistent with your locs maintenance, and never ever neglect them. My locs will let me know if I start to ignore them, meaning not taking good care of them. Yes, it will start to show in the texture, color, and hair growth will slow down.

Neglecting Your Locs Shows

Sometimes I do get super busy and therefore, slack up a bit on my locs maintenance. When this happens, I can see a drastic change in the appearance of my hair. That is why I always try to have my Jamaican Black Castor Oil ready, to get my dreads bouncing back to life. Yes, I always try not to run out completely.

Older Locs

The older my locs get, the less I have to pop them at the roots, unless you wash them and leave them untwisted for a certain period of time. If you don’t separate the roots, they will just grow into each other similar to freeform dreads. That’s perfectly fine if you’re going for that look.

Brushing Your Dreadlocks

Brushing the roots of your locs can help keep the roots separated, and give your scalp the needed stimulation to encourage hair growth. However, I wouldn’t recommend brushing your hair when it’s wet, to avoid breakage from the roots.

Brushing your dreads when doing your regular locs maintenance, is also effective in getting rid of any debris that may be trapped in your locs. If you don’t remove them, they will just stay there and become part of your dreads. Choosing the right hair brush is also essential for best results.

Satin Sleep Cap for Locs

Use a satin sleep cap, to protect your hair while you snooze at nights. Wearing a satin sleep cap also helps to retain moisture, prevent hair breakage, help with locs growth, and keep your hairstyle on fleek.

When the fall or winter season come around, you may notice that your skin will look more drier, which means that you have to have special products to replenish the natural moisture back into your skin. Well, your dreadlocks will require special care too during the cold winter months.

Fall/winter care for locs require more than just pampering your hair. It also means that your scalp will need proper care too. It is common for some people to experience dry, flaky scalp during the winter months. Learning to care for  your dreads during these upcoming seasons will preserve the beauty of your locs.

Oils for Locs During Fall and Winter

Using the right oils for your locs can make a huge difference in the overall health and appearance of your hair. You really have to keep replenishing the moisture in your hair, making sure to use the right oils to lock in the moisture in each strand of loc.

Creating and Sticking to a Locs Regimen

As the brutally cold winter months approach, come up with a plan that works for you, so that you can adjust your locs care regimen to fit in the essential winter haircare products that is necessary.

Remember how much work you had to put in to get your dreads to the stage where they are now. Neglecting to take care of them during the winter, will have a devastating effect on them if they are not protected during the fall and winter months.

Fall/Winter Headwraps for Your Locs

Headwraps come in a wide array of colors and designs, and are great to cover your hair in the cold months. However, if you don’t want to be left with lint stuck in your dreads, you should choose a lint-free headwrap to cover your locs.

Winter Care Protective Styles

Wearing protective styles is the way to go if you want to keep your locs soft and beautiful during the fall and winter months. This is especially important before going to sleep at nights. You want to ensure that you don’t lose moisture as well as cause hair breakage.

Nighttime Winter Sleep Care

Covering your locs before going to bed, is also recommended to keep your hair moisturized during the winter. The cold windy days can leave your hair crying for  moisture, so moisturize and lock it in for ultimate daytime protection.
