Washing My Locs

Published April 12, 2014 by meka144

Ok. So i finally did a well needed wash last night but I did not do a retwist. Anyway, tried some new products and I Love them. First I washed with a clarifying shampoo by V05. I washed with this shampoo 3 time until my water was almost clear. I then did a final wash using shea moisture shampoo (another new product). Then I used the shea moisture conditioner and let it sit in about 15 mins then rinsed. Let me tell you, besides the heaviness of the water, my locs felt light, clean, and smelled so good. One thing to remember is to make sure you use a conditioner to replace the oils that may have been stripped out from using the clarifying shampoo. After drying a little with my towel. I sprayed an oil mixture (tea tree oil, olive oil, black castor oil, vitamin e oil, coconut oil, and hask placenta 《not human placenta… ewww. lol. may sound gross but it works great and is considered a conditioner 4 your hair and promotes hair growth》). This is a new combo of oil I decided to use because I have extremely dry hair. I will only use it every 3-4 days. I always allow my hair to air dry and usually would retwist my hair right after, but I will be waiting until later 2 night to do that. Im also trying another new product ( Olive Oil hair pudding) to retwist my locs. Cant wait to see the results. See pictures below to see the products and where I purchased them. Thanks for reading!!!!

The clarifying shampoo I used. – BEWARE: If you are against any hair products with sodium lauryl sulfate. DO NOT USE.  – This can be found anywhere that shampoo is sold. VERY inexpensive.

So I did use the style milk after using my oils. but this is also the shampoo I used. The conditioner is not pictured. – Most drug stores and local beauty supply stores have this. Shampoo/ Cobditioner is about $10 / bottle. I caught this on sale @ cvs for buy 1 get 1 free.

These are the oils I use that can be purchased at your local beauty supply store. The olive oil pudding can be purchased just about anywhere.
