Dry locs. This problem plagues many happily locked ladies. First, make sure that you actually have dry locs. Natural hair doesn’t usually have a shine, but rather exhibits a slight sheen. This sheen comes from the way light reflects of our locs. For some, this sheen is greatly noticeable. For others, sheen might seem virtually nonexistent.
A lack of sheen does not mean you have dry locs. Your locked natural hair becomes too dry when you use certain products or don’t properly care for your locs. It will feel brittle to the touch and will be susceptible to breakage. You might also have a naturally dry hair texture and need to give your dreadlocks extra attention.
