One of the frequently asked questions in Loc groups on facebook is ‘How do you get rid of frizzy locs?’ Some of the standard answers one can expect to read is ‘Trust the process’ or ‘Embrace it’. While these are good answers they often don’t seem to satisfy the poster and truth to be told there are a few things one can do.
Fist, what you should never do
No matter how frizzy your locs get what you should never ever do is to use a razor to cut off the frizz. It is hair that belongs in the loc. Hair that will eventually matt with the loc naturally. Cutting the frizz off with a razor will damage your locs. Especially in the starting phase and most certainly if you have any kind of micro locs.
When you are in the beginning stage of your loc journey frizz is indeed inevitable. As described in my blog Embrace your frizzy Locs during your journey you will become more acceptable of frizz. Still, a satin pillow case does help reduce the frizz. 100% silk is even better.
Scarfs and bonnets
Even if you do have a silk pillow case, it is good to sleep with a scarf or a bonnet on. This double protection will most certainly keep your frizz at bay, maximally. Best of all, you can look like a sleeping beauty with one of our super soft silky scarfs.
They are free of elastic, so no pressure on the hair line and no elastic. It doesn’t look like an oversized shower cap. The silky scarf has two long tails that allows you to decide the pressure while it stays on. It is just a beautiful wrap that you can even wear outside.
What also helps reduce frizzy locs tremendously is a good microfiber towel. That means one that quickly absorbs water from your locs, doesn’t leave lint in your hair and doesn’t disturb your strands.
Then there is the Loc Glove. Also made of super soft microfiber this super Loc Glove will not only reduce frizz tremendously, it will also help you:
