Benefits of Brushing Locs

Whether you are a Sisterlock, Semi-Freeform, or Loc Wise, brushing your locs is one of the most important parts of your regimen. It helps to detangle your hair, separate lint and buildup, and maintain a healthy growing flow.

1. Reduce Lint Accumulation

The most common reason people brush their locs is to prevent lint from imbedding into the roots of the loc. This can occur when you are exposing your hair to a variety of different elements like wooly sweaters, fabric, or blankets.

2. Stimulates New Growth

Brushing encourages blood flow to the roots, which is essential for healthy growing locks. It also removes old, dry hair from the root so that new hair can grow into it.

3. Prevents Frizz and Breakage

Brushing helps to loosen dirt and spread sebum along the length of your locs, which will help reduce frizz and breakage.

4. Increases Shine

Brushing is a great way to boost the shine of your locs! It can be done on wet or dry locs, depending on your preference.

5. Increases Flexibility

If you are a freeform locer, you may notice that your root hairs can get loose when you twist or latch them. Having a boar bristle brush will help to tame these fly-away roots and keep them maintained so they don’t get fuzzy.
