What is a Retwist?

A Retwist is when you need periodic maintenance on your roots and new growth. This does not include maintenance along the length of your dreadlock, such as thinning areas(That would be listed under Maintenance).

Retwists are scheduled periodically(such as monthly) to prevent breakage and damage of the locs. Doing retwists prevents the new growth from separating from the loc, thus producing a healthy loc.

Over retwisting is dangerous and can result in loc thinning.

Retwists should be done on palm rolled, comb twisted and finger made locs. Water, gel or dry methods may be used, depending on texture of hair.

Retwists are done every 3 to 6 weeks depending on your activity and rate of root growth.

What do do in between Retwists

In between visits, oil your scalp regularly to retain moisture, as locs soak up a lot of the oils in your scalp naturally. Wearing a silk scarf at night helps to protect your locs and any other type of cap may actually cause breakage around the scalp edges and top of head.

If you have European/Straight Hair, the Crochet tool May be used as a Maintenance service for the roots and along the shaft as one. Click Here for more info.

When You need more than a retwist.

If you have not kept up with your maintenance schedule, your locs may have thinned and broken off. This happens because the new growth often wiggles out of the loc area and doesn’t loc into the shaft. This causes hair to hang and if the hair grows out even more, 6 months to a year, the locs will also hang heavy and break-off since the scalp has produced more hair. Maintenance prevents this from happening because the new growth is neatly joined with the shaft of the loc periodically, making it stronger and more uniform. Thus producing and Maintaining a healthy loc.

See other Maintenance such as Interlocking(using crochet tool on Afro Hair) here.

  • Service Warranty & Disclaimer

    Clients are often confused as to the difference between a retwist and a repair in  the maintenance process. When you get a retwist, it is only at the root that it is retwisted, with or without products used. Often times when the client has waited too long in between retwists, the new growth has separated too much from the loc which probably led to some sort of breakage thus needing a repair, Sometimes a repair is required using a tool to rejoin the lock, if palm rolling does not allow the loose hair to attach properly.

    If a repair is required, it will be indicated at the time of appointment, it can be  rescheduled for repairs if not prepared. Clients requesting a retwist are usually  warned that repairs may be necessary since they cannot be detected always in online consultation photos. Please be aware of this.
