Brushing Loc's..?!

I recently learned that brushing your locs/dreads can be a good thing. I always avoided using a brush because I was nervous about causing breakage or making my hair look messy. But if you doing it right before a wash, it actually helps with getting ride of any lint and dirt that may be hanging on. It also feels really good to brush your scalp. I would recommend using a brush with soft bristles.


  1. Brushing locks is really good. I use the baby brush for mine, it's gentle to my hair and the scalp. Brushing also helps the locks look tidy when you haven't retwisted in a long time....Great blog, do visit mine and let's exchange ideas about Locking
