Leave-In Conditioners=Oh Yeah

Lately my my locs have been looking and feeling a little dry. And no, darlings..it has nothing to do with the weather because helloooo, I live in Florida. It doesn't get very cold here so I have no need to adopt a "winter hair regimen".  I think my dry locs can be attributed my most recent color job--which, by the way, is growing out ALREADY.

What a freakin' rip off. I go through the drama of a bad color job that I learned to deal with and NOW it decides to disappear while leaving my hair a dry mess? Epic failure, right? But my girls Toshia from On the Road to Queendom and natural hair stylist, Felicia Leatherwood made some suggestions a while ago that are reviving the locs.



I've been using the Infusium 23 after washes and the Jane Carter every other day or so. My hair is 10x softer. I'll be reviewing these kids individually but just know that leave in conditioners are rocking my world right now. I hope they don't cause any build-up issues though. Lawd...

In other news, I have an afro at the back of my head.



And re-twisting the first 2 rows of locs is becoming pointless because within days, it just un-twists anyway. My hair has becoming quite stubborn. But then again, it would be with it being a month away from celebrating its Terrible Two's. Awwww!!!

Glad to see i m on the right track. I have been using both these products. Actually i had used Infusium way back when i had permed hair and just started reusing it when I started swimming this summer. They are working wonders for me and my daughter. :)

I swear by the Infusium 23. I can instantly tell the difference when I wash and use another product or don't use a leave in conditioner at all. And as Toshia revealed on her blog, you will see a difference in your Loc's growth. Genetics played a part, but my Locs at 2 years are some folks at 3 or 4. Infusium 23 truly helps.

I have been using infusium for over 30 years! It is a very reliable product! I have been using Jane carter since the first day I locked three years ago. It has not failed me yet!

Your babies are growing up! Aww The afro in back and front is a plight I have, but I just leave it. Maybe one say I will try to tame it a bit, but I am so glad to have a hair line :) You're doing a fabulous job with your hair! BEAUTIFUL!

Are your locs in what's considered the teen stage? I've heard that, just like a typical teenager, locs at that stage can get stubborn and unruly. I like the ponytail!

I swear by Infusium 23. I mean, the stuff really delivers. My hair is soooooooo soft now that I use it and I don't see any build up. I use it daily and spray it on my locs. I would suggest Infusium toany loc wearer.
