    Locs - Oil Moisturizers, Shampoos, Conditioners

    I need a good oil moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner for my man. He has dreads and it's becoming a bit dry. He goes to get it professionally done once every 3 weeks. What can he use in between visits? What can make his hair grow?


    PLEASE HELP ME

    THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

    Folks in the loc thread swear by Jamaica Mango Lime products...check them out....I use Root Stimulator Olive Oil Spray....he should tie his head at night with a satin scarf or sleep on a satin pillowcase. Cotton products will absorb the oil out of his hair. he should probably get a hot oil conditioner (depending on how mature his locs are). In the end, he should tell his loctician...she might be able to do something about the dryness.

    As far as oil I use Palmer's Extra Virgin Olive Oil and I love it. I also use the Roots Stimulator Sheen that I think someone else mentioned.

    That stuff leaves build up in your hair. I had a friend that used it for years and she stopped using it a few monthly ago because she started to realize that it was leaving build up in her hair.

    A lot of people with locs don't realize that you don't need all those gels and waxes to twist your hair. All you need is a good oil or pomade to keep it moist and some clips to keep the twists tight until it dries and the twists stay just as good as if you used gel but without all the buildup. I use Nu Ade oil in my hair and that's it. I use Dove shampoo and conditioner.

    Exactly. I noticed that with that loc and twist gel. It makes his scalp itch and then flakes start to appear after a couple of days.

    I'm going to look into that oil. Thank you.

    I must agree with this! Man when I first started almost a year ago, that's all I used, and I swear, that my scalped stayed itchy! Now all I use is the Olive oil sheen spray. When I twist, i used to use the black beeswax, but I CAN'T STAND THAT SHYTE EITHER, MAN, I HAVE MESSED UP MANY PILLOW CASES AND ALL! So now, I am in search of some new products to! I think I am gonna try Carol's daughter products, to see what happens.
