Winter Won't Win! Keep Your Faux Locs Moisturized and Fabulous with These Tips!

Alright, Boho Locs fam, winter is creepin’ in, and you know what that means – it's time to brace ourselves against the chill, snuggle up in our coziest sweaters, and sip on a hot toddy. But, before we fully embrace the winter wonderland, spare a thought for your beautiful crown.


The cold weather can be quite the nemesis for those luscious locs, leaving them drier than the Sahara.


Boho Locs are a bomb protective style, but hey, just like our natural hair, they crave a lil' extra love, especially when it's frosty out there. Ain't nobody got time for that dry, crispy hair struggle while we're out here trying to own the season. We've got events to slay, folks to link up with, and a whole lotta moves to make, sis! We stay active!


So, let's dive into some hydration hacks to ensure your locs stay lush and lovely all winter long.

Moisture, moisture, moisture!

Let's start with the basics: Moisture is crucial for your hair, and it's essential to keep it well-hydrated to maintain the health and vitality of your Boho Locs. Dry air can quickly sap the life out of your locs, so it's important to invest in a quality leave-in conditioner or a hydrating hair mist. Applying a small amount to your locs daily will help keep them happy and hydrated.

Before your install, it's vital to ensure your natural hair is sufficiently moisturized. Healthy hair is well-moisturized hair, and to achieve this, we recommend using the L.O.C method. What does this little abbreviation break down into: Liquid/Leave-In Conditioner, Oil, and Cream.


Begin by washing and deep conditioning your hair, and then follow up with a water-based moisturizer (with water as the first ingredient), a natural oil of your choice (such as olive, coconut, or jojoba), and finish with a cream-based leave-in or natural hair butter. This pre-install routine forms a solid foundation for maintaining moisture throughout the installation process.

The Oil Game


In the battle against winter dryness, oils play a vital role. Whether it's jojoba, argan, coconut, or olive oil, they are your best friends. Warm a small amount of oil in your hands and gently distribute it from your hair's roots to the tips. Oils not only provide deep moisture but also help seal it in. Remember not to go overboard; a little oil goes a long way!


Hydrate from the Inside


You can slather your faux locs with all the products in the world, but it won't make a lasting impact if you're not hydrated from the inside. Make sure you're drinking enough water. Keeping yourself well-hydrated is key to having well-hydrated locs. Plus, it's a win-win for your overall health.


Keep 'Em Covered


Scarves and hats aren't just for fashion; they're your hair's first line of defense against the harsh winter elements. So, wrap up your locs and keep them cozy. This not only adds extra protection but also prevents moisture loss.


Cool Water Rinse


When it comes to rinsing your faux locs, go for cool water instead of hot. Hot water strips away natural oils from your locs, making them dry and brittle. A cool water rinse is gentler and helps to lock in moisture. Plus, it's invigorating in the morning!


Protect Your Edges


The edges of your hair are delicate and prone to dryness, especially during the winter. To keep them in top shape, invest in a silk or satin edge scarf or bonnet. Simply tie it around your hairline before bed to shield your edges from friction and prevent moisture loss. It's a small step that can make a big difference in preserving the health and appearance of your Boho Locs.


TLC (Tender Loving Care)


Lastly, don't forget to give your locs some tender loving care. Be gentle when handling them, avoid excessive manipulation, and use accessories that won't snag or pull at your hair. Your locs deserve all the love they can get!
