Jane Carter=super pricey loc gel

Saw this in Whole Foods. Wowsers! Why is it $21? Insaaaaane. I would love to try it but I'm not payin' that much for a little thingy of loc gel.

....but lemme stop talking trash: I did buy that $20 hair serum after hearing so many raves about it helping dandruff. I used it religiously and....it was GOOD! But I'm not paying $20 for that baby bottle again. Boy, I tell you....dandruff desperation will make you do some loco things. HA!

I did end up purchasing Kinky-Curly's Come Clean natural moisturizing shampoo. Quite impulsive of me since I just placed an Oyin order. But I wanted to try something else other than castille soap. I love that stuff but it can be rather drying---and who needs that? Especially since I've colored my hair more than once. And more than twice. Ha!

I'll post results. I can't even remember the last time I washed my hair....thanks to latching I won't have to spend hours twisting. Yaaaaay!!!

I read an article a few weeks back that said dandruff is not caused by dry skin flaking. It is actually products that have built up in your hair/scalp. If you get dandruff just after washing your hair, that is because you still have shampoo or conditioner residues in your hair that weren't properly rinsed out. If the problem persists, you might want to get a lighter shampoo or conditioner. Greasing your scalp does not really help. It's just a common misconception. Hope this helps.

I just recently tried (and stopped using) the Come Clean. My locs felt like straw a few days after i washed with it, and i couldn't figure out why.. now i know!

Kristin---> You ain't lyin' on that one. My babies are a bit drier than usual.

Kinda on the subject, I've noticed that Whole Foods hike up the prices...a lot! This past weekend I went there to purchase some soap by the Kiss My Face brand, and it was two dollars more than it normally is...not to mention other products that were hiked up too. I will still go there for certain brands that aren't carried in other stores, but I will be more cognizant of competitive pricing.

B.C.U---> You ain't lyin'! I used to shop at Whole Foods a lot anyway but now I am hardly there. They are beyond expensive. I now shop for fresh fruits/veggies at farmer's markets. I love Kiss My Face...BTW. I think they are sold in Target.

I cannot find the original article. It was on a black hair magazine website but this article touches on the subject.

generally i agree with what "kukaberry" is pointing out about dandruff. i have new dreads by the way and use inky warrior queen cleanser, from inkylovesnature.com i think it is. i like it, it's moisturizing without leaving residue. love your blog by the way!
