Natural Head Spotlight: Liane's Summer Spritz

I know there loose some natural heads who read Loc Rocker so I'm going to do a better job at posting content that can inspire and help them out too. Liane is  fabulous reader who emailed me some time ago about how she can keep her afro nice and conditioned on her trip to Jamaica. She told me that she would be doing quite a bit of swimming in salt water and chlorine.

I suggested a daily spritz of glycerin, water and essential oils.

Here's what she said:

The glycerin/water/mint/rosemary mix was fantastic. I preconditioned my hair before every swim with some free sample cream of nature jojoba moisture conditioner (I don't use the stuff normally but it's a whole bottle of free sampler). Then I did a co-wash with the trader joe's conditioner and then a spray of the glycerin/water leave in and rub down with olive/coconut oil. My hair and scalp sing your praises. Thank you so much for your suggestions.

My fro LOVED that little mixture. Remember to use a liberal amount of glycerin as too much of that stuff will make your hair a sticky mess.

Rock on my afro sportin' sisters!
