2023.03.31 15:16 SeriousGeeseClan Products and routines for keeping your scalp moisturized while not destroying locs

I've had my hair set in locs back in October 2022 and last week I had my locs re-twisted to account for hair growth and the strands coming apart. I was told by the hairdresser that I need to use less water in my routine as I'm causing the core to come apart and my hair to frizz. In the time between my last appointment in early February, my scalp has gotten drier and itchier with more noticeable dandruff build up. So I started washing my hair once a week with the shea and moisture shampoo and conditioner, keeping a shower cap on otherwise, and spraying my hair with a water and oil mix at night. Just some mixture I saw in a YouTube video. I also use ORS lock and twist gel the barbershop gave me.
My question is then, what should I use or what routine should I pick up to keep my hair and scalp moisturized while not ruining my hairstyle.
About my hair, its 4a (I think) and low porosity. I've also been told by a couple hairdressers that it's soft as a reason why I might be having a hard start to keeping them together; I don't know if that is already accounted for in the first two things.

2023.03.25 23:38 cfuller864 Daily styling while using Minoxidil as a black man

Hey y’all,
I am a black male and was recently diagnosed with traction alopecia by my dermatologist. I have thinning along my edges due to tight hairstyles and poor management during my youth. The rest of my hair is fine, 4B(front of hair)/4C(back of hair) texture. Length is about 5-6 inches in the unaffected areas.
I normally follow the LOC method and I was wondering if I could get some tips on how to maintain hair moisture while using foam minoxidil(prescribed by dermatologist), as it contains alcohol and can dry hair out. In what order should I use LCO/LOC products and minoxidil? If I use minoxidil daily how can I maintain moisture?
Any tips are appreciated!

2023.03.23 06:03 mpchop Dreadlocks in Acting?

Hi, so I’m a black guy looking to get dreadlocks, as I’ve been trying to experiment with different hairstyles and whatnot to see what I like. Right now, I usually have either twists or curls. If I were to get locs, they wouldn’t go past my head, maybe my chin. For reference, think of the rapper Scarlxrd.
Anyways, would this affect my chances at potential roles? I’m not looking to be in like the huge, huge movie industry or broadway, I wouldn’t even do acting full time. But I’d love to be in films, student films, community theatres, college plays, etc. and maybe one day, if I’m lucky, like walnut or a big theatre in my area. But basically, community theatres.
So yeah, would that limit my chance at roles? I’m sure I can always get a wig and I haven’t even gotten the locs yet, so I might not even like them. But would it really be a big deal? I’m in the middle of saying it wouldn’t because it wouldn’t be traditional dreadlocks where they go to my shoulders or back. But yes, because if it’s set in the olden days, locs like those weren’t really mainstream until like… the 2000s, lol.
So yes, please — feedback! What do you guys think?

“Just got my locs don’t know how I feel about them” “Should I take them out?”
Completely defeating the purpose of locs altogether. They’re a personal journey not a weekly hairstyle. You loc your hair and take it out two days later you’re gonna fuck your shit up.

What kind of hair routines are you using?
When it comes to hair care, there are countless routines and techniques that people swear by. Each has a different style of caring for their hair, from washing to styling. In this blog, we will explore some of the most popular hair routines and techniques that exist.
  1. Co-washing: Co-washing, also known as conditioner washing, is a hair-washing method in which shampoo is skipped in favor of conditioner. This technique is well-liked by people with curly or coily hair since it keeps the hair's hydration and natural oils in place.
  2. The LOC Method: The LOC method is a hair care routine that stands for Liquid, Oil, and Cream. This technique involves applying a water-based product (liquid) to the hair, followed by an oil-based product (oil) to lock in moisture, and then finishing with a cream-based product to seal the hair cuticle. This routine is great for those with dry or damaged hair.
  3. Protective Styling: Protective styling is a hair care technique where you style your hair in a way that protects it from damage. This may include wearing buns, twists, braids, or even a wig. Protective styling helps to prevent breakage and damage from styling tools, harsh weather conditions, and manipulation.
Protective styling helps to prevent breakage and damage from styling tools, harsh weather conditions, and manipulation.
  1. Scalp massages: Scalp massages are an excellent approach to encourage hair development and enhance your hair's general health. Increased blood flow to the hair follicles caused by scalp massage can promote hair growth. To gently massage your scalp, you can use your fingers, a brush, or even a scalp massager.
  2. Hair Masks: Hair masks are a great way to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment. They can improve the overall condition of your hair by hydrating and nourishing it as well as repairing damage. Use a hair mask our store or create your own using organic ingredients like avocado, coconut oil, or honey.
  3. Low Manipulation: Low manipulation is a hair care technique where you minimize the amount of manipulation your hair undergoes. Wearing protective hairstyles, avoiding using heat styling tools too often, and using fewer hair products are a few examples of how to do this. For people who want to lessen hair damage and encourage healthy hair development, this approach works wonders.
  4. The Curly Girl Method: The Curly Girl Method is a hair care routine specifically designed for those with curly or coily hair. It includes appreciating your natural curls, using less frequent heat styling equipment, and utilizing products devoid of harsh chemicals and sulfates.
In conclusion, there are several widely used hair care routines and methods available, each with their special advantages. It could take some trial and error to find the routine that works best for you, but by combining some of these methods into your hair care routine, you can have healthy, lovely hair.

2023.03.17 14:21 Animus_Afterhours Vampire Physics and Protective Hairstyles

My Storyteller friend and I have been having a discussion over whether or not the whole "resets to how they were when embraced every single night" thing applies to protective hairstyles or not. (Locs, Cornrows, Braids, etc.)
I said no because it's just changing the position the hair is in, not chemically altering it. Braiding colored extensions into your hair =/= dying it a different color. And i don't think they would just fall out either. (Faux locs vs regular locs being a whole different debate)
I also think you'd be able to remove any extensions or take out any braids or different hairstyles as again, it's just changing the position of the hair and not physically or chemically altering it in any way.
So the way we run it at least, you'd be able to go and have your hair done and keep it that way. But how would you all rule it? Yes or No to protective hairstyles being allowed to stay if put in post-embrace?

2023.03.14 01:22 sunlitroof PLEASE give us black hair too

I never got to play a style savvy as a broke kid, but i used to play the free demos and watched gameplay videos. So i dont know for sure how it was in the past, but in the trailer I do see dark skinned characters but the regular "anime" hairstyles. Please allow us to create ourselves, not just dark skin with an anime wig on. Not that thats bad, but id also like to create a character with beautiful coils, locs, twists, etc. And not just your standard afro and some corn rows.
Our hair is JUST as beautiful, trendy, stylish as any others' straight, wavy, or curly hair. Please dont have 5k straight styles and a few loose curls. I mean type 3 to type 4 hairs too.
Please respect us 🙏🏾

2023.03.11 02:24 Eyeqoniq_CBA Future thinning?

Hello so Im looking into getting a hair transplant but Im wondering after the hair transplant does the hair still thin that was transplanted im assuming it does. I also heard that when you get older the spots where the donor hair was taken will look off is this true? Also are there any black men who have had transplants and gotten locs or twist after? Im wondering if I would still be able to do the hairstyles I do now after healing if I get the surgery. I don’t think I need it right now because my hair is only slightly thinning.

2023.03.10 18:20 randauum AITA for "gatekeeping" a hairstyle?

Repost, because the original got deleted.
It seems silly for something like this to cause so much drama that I'd have to post here, but I really need to know where I might be wrong here.
I (F), have a friend we will call "P" (F). "P" and i have been friends for almost 2 years and ive come go learn that she's a bit of a copy cat. She copies outfits, hairstyles and even interests and hobbies.
Let me explain I love to cook, P has never cooked a day in the life of our friendship and constantly complains about how "why would you want to cook when it's so much easier to order" but now, because I met my girlfriend recently and have been teaching her how to cook, she suddenly loves cooking and tells my girlfriend (and only her when I'm around) how shes so much better than her because she loves cooking.
I told her I'd have some faux locs installed for my birthday and she does it a day before my hair appointment, I tell her I like a certain movie, it's all she can talk about, i tell her something cute/intimate I and my partner shared and suddenly her man has done it for her a million times. You get the picture
Recently I just stopped telling her things because people started to think I was the copy cat, except a few people close to us.
That leads us to Wednesday I posted a picture of me taking my braids out and she DMS me as soon as she sees it with "what hair are you doing next" at this point I just lie and told her something random Guess what? She had that style by yesterday. I got my hair done today and it's a completely different style.
I post a picture, and she immediately starts blowing up my phone, calling me a gatekeeping b*tch and starts crying asking why I was being so mean.
She called everyone we know telling them we had planned to get the same hairstyle done but i switched up on her I've since explained but some are still on her side saying i should just apologise AITA?

Everything You wanted to Know About Coily Hair

Cute Coily Hair
For some women, managing unruly and unpredictable deep-wave hair is a lifelong endeavor. Your coily hair may be lively and defined one moment and a matted mess the next. But don't worry, because the key to maximizing the potential of your coily hair lies in your haircare regimen. Damage and breakage can arise due to various factors, such as insufficient moisture, heat styling, coloring treatments, fabric friction, and tightly styled hairdos.
Additionally, the hair around your face is more delicate than the rest. Coily hair is naturally porous, which means it quickly absorbs and loses moisture, resulting in a frizzy and dry appearance. However, with the proper techniques, products, and habits, preserving your curls can be a breeze.
If you haven't yet discovered the best haircare routine for coily hair, we have you covered! To enhance the vitality of your coils and prevent additional breakage, there are several steps you can take. Let's delve deeper into what coily hair is, how it varies from curly hair, and how you can style it.

What is Coily Hair?

What is Kinky Coily Hair?
4c Coily hair is a type of hair that falls between straight and curly hair on the hair spectrum. It is typically more voluminous than most curly hairstyles and characterized by tight coils with a springy and dense texture. Type 4A coily hair has S-shaped coils, whereas type 4B has z-shaped patterns with a wiry texture. Both types can benefit from defrizzing conditioners containing oils and vitamins to hydrate the hair. For 4A coily hair, products containing ingredients like propylene glycol, a humectant that balances moisture levels in the hair and softens curls, are the most suitable suggestions.

How to Maintain Coily Hair?

Essential Tight Coily Hair Protection
Reduce Dryness: To combat dryness in kinky coily hair, which can occur due to its tightly packed texture making it challenging for natural oils to spread evenly throughout the strands, it is crucial to incorporate moisture-rich products into your hair care routine. One effective method for hydrating dry hair is the LOC method, which involves applying styling products in the order of leave-in, oil, and cream to lock in moisture and maintain hydration from roots to tips.
Moisturizing Treatment: Another way to enhance hydration is by using a moisturizing conditioner treatment infused with French Argan Oil, which can revitalize dry or damp hair by delivering an extra dose of moisture, combating dryness, and adding shine to your locks. Finally, using a thick cream-based product with hydrating ingredients, such as curl-enhancing mousse, can assist in locking in moisture and preventing tangling caused by dryness.
Shrugging off Shrinkage with Protective Hairstyles: Coily hair of all types tends to exhibit some degree of shrinkage, which can be both advantageous and bothersome. Although shrinkage can produce voluminous hairstyles and make hair easier to manage, it can also make it challenging to determine the actual hair length. To combat the shrinkage of coily hair, consider styling it in braids. Braiding can help elongate the hair, resulting in increased length. To achieve optimal length, section the hair into multiple braids throughout the head, such as box braids or cornrows. These hairstyles are aesthetically appealing on their own and can be undone at any time to reveal longer locks.
Reduce Breakage: Although the thick, coarse texture of coily hair may make it appear more robust than other hair types, it is, in fact, quite delicate and susceptible to breakage due to fewer cuticle layers than other hair types. Given its fragile nature, it's crucial to handle coily hair with care. To avoid breakage, it's best to be gentle with your hair and use techniques such as proper drying and detangling with a wide-tooth comb. Shampoos that contain sulfates and other harsh chemicals may effectively clean hair, but they can also strip it of natural oils and moisture, causing dryness and breakage. Co-washing, or using a conditioner-only wash, is an alternative that can be applied to the entire scalp like a shampoo. The Design Essentials Almond and Avocado Nourishing Co-wash is an effective choice for those with coily, curly, and kinky hair.
Protect your hair during the night: In order to protect your curly coily hair from damage overnight, it's crucial to wrap your hair in a satin hair scarf or sleep on a satin pillowcase. Cotton is not recommended for 4C coily hair, as it can absorb moisture from your strands and cause friction and tangles as you move your head during sleep, leading to matted and knotted hair. Silk, on the other hand, is a smooth and gentle material that is less likely to cause damage to your curls. It also helps to retain moisture and protect your hair while you sleep. By morning, your hair will be tangle-free and ready to style into your desired 4C natural hairstyles.
Trim your hairs: Just like with any other hair type, it's recommended to trim 4C hair every 6–8 weeks in order to keep it healthy. Frequent trims are necessary to maintain healthy ends and to remove any split ends, which can help to keep your curls defined, bouncy, and promote length retention. While it may seem counterproductive, regular trims can actually encourage healthy growth in 4C coily hair over time.
Detangle your hair with fingers: Frequent finger detangling can be a time-consuming process when it comes to untangling the coils of 4C hair, but it is a gentle method that can make a significant difference. Finger detangling can help prevent breakage, unlike using a comb. By dedicating time to finger detangle your 4C hair, you can maintain its health and encourage optimal growth.
Coily hair styles: Curly coily hair is a work of art in its own right, offering endless possibilities for styling. With its bouncing curls, spiraling coils, and kinky twists, this unique hair type creates stunning and distinct hairstyles. From tight, defined coils to loose, carefree curls, the options are limitless. The "wash and go" method is a game-changer for those with curly coily hair, allowing you to embrace your curls without spending hours styling them. Additionally, a twist-out or braid-out can give definition and texture to your hair, achieving a refined yet effortless appearance. Protective styles such as braids, twists, or bantu knots are also excellent ways to keep your hair healthy and hydrated while looking stylish.


Coily hairstyles have been gaining immense popularity for some time now. Because of the look the twists give to your face, curly coily hair is being taken up by many women, However, It is also important to take good care of them, as curly hair run out of moisture easily. Follow the tips mentioned in the blog and get heads turning!
It can be a task to achieve coily hair naturally. Check out Indique Hair if you want to buy coily human hair extensions. The brand offers excellent quality extensions and wigs made of 100% human hair. Visit the Indique hair store today and grab fantastic hairpieces at affordable prices!

So far his family has been helping me but none of them have had dreads before, I don’t want to mess up his hair but I know I can learn more lol. I have some questions that I need help answering: 1. Does double twisting locs help the loc grow faster? Is it better to double twist? 2. What gels or oils do you recommend? I have Mielle oil and a Jamaican wax 3. To put beads or decorations in the hair do you take it out before getting wet?
