Locs Styling Tutorial & Wash Day Routine

by Pattern Beauty

Locs love to grow tall, long & wide. Locs believe in growth, dimension, magnitude, & evolution. They love to take up space. Just ask doula, mother, wife, author and PATTERN model, Brandi Sellers Jackson.

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

Locs crave healthy scalp care & tender attention to their roots. To give us her tried-and-tested loc care routine, we asked Brandi to break it down from Wash Day to her favorite styles, how she interlocks and oils her scalp, plus her personal approach to moisturizing and preventing dryness. 

"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 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.
