Lock 101 Series #2: Lock Grooming Essentials
1) Shampoo and conditioner: of course we need to start with cleansed and moisturized hair.
2) Oils/ moisturizing cream of your choice: oils are very light and will not create too much build on the hair. If you don't mind having product on your hair then, a moisturizing cream is your best bet. Know your hair so that you can better decide.
3) Energetic Fingers or interlocking tool: you will need your fingers to define the hair sections as well as retighten the locks and the locking tool to interlock the roots.
4) Hair Gel: this will help to blend the new growth to the fully formed locks. The one I recommend is the Organic Root Stimulator Lock and Twist Gel.
5) Hair tie or rubber bands: these will be necessary to hold the portion of hair that you are not working with.
6) Head tie or scarf: when you are finished you will need to protect and maintain moisture so this is where the head tie and scarf comes in.
7) Very interesting movie: to be entertained during the long boring and tiring process.
After all this you will have beautiful well groomed hair. Next week, I'll do a follow up post on how to care your hair during the in between stages before the next wash.
