Q
I am in a rut trying to get my locs to lay down. At 3”-4” they usually stick straight up, I love to hear more about herbal rinses. How are they done? Which herbs do I use?

A
It is not unusual for locs of your length to resist lying down. As they grow to five inches and longer, the additional length and weight will direct them in a downward position. In the meantime, you can train them to lay down while still moist after shampooing and at night. Herbal rinses can help nourish your hair with nutrient –rich infusions. You can achieve shine and relief from itchiness, dryness or excess production. Yarrow, horsetail and comfrey can help relieve irritation, anti-inflammatory chamomile, soothing mullein and violet help relieve aid allergic reactions; and nettle, arnica and rosemary help stimulate growth and gloss.
