Locs love to grow tall, long & wide. Styling locs is a belief in growth, dimension, magnitude, & evolution. They love to take up space. Just ask doula, mother, wife, author & PATTERN model, Brandi Sellers Jackson about how to take care of locs when it comes to washing locs & her favorite protective style.

Growing locs is a beautiful hair care journey of coiling, twisting, palm rolling, braiding, or allowing natural hair to organically grow & merge to create fused strands which can range from micro size to larger free form & from starter locs to mature locs. 

Locs crave scalp health & tender attention to their roots. TTo give us her tried-and-tested loc care routine, we asked Brandi to show us how to wash locs, demonstrate her favorite protective styles for locs, show us how she interlocks & oils her scalp, plus share her personal approach to moisturizing & preventing dry hair with this protective styling technique. 

"I intentionally approach wash day as my self-care ritual. It's my moment to unplug & connect with myself," says Brandi. Within this moment is joy. There is no need for overthinking. I am present & that is enough. I take in my surroundings, smells, & what it feels like to be in my body within the moment. For example, after washing my hair strands with PATTERN, I not only enjoy the warmth of the hot oil treatment but the feeling of home that it provides, as I reflect on wash days & hot oil treatments as a little girl & moving the product down my locs all the way through my curly ends.
