In an effort to crank out more product reviews, I'm going to start by grabbing some of the reviews I did on Clumps of Mascara and sharing them with the Loc Rocker fam. Here's one of them...
Price: 4 out of 5 ($15.50 from Sephora.com)
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5
What it claims: “In order to lock hair, one does not need sticky pomades. It is the motion of the palm roll or twist in conjunction with clean, properly moisturized hair that aids in the locking process. This Carol’s Daughter favorite, offers superior grooming with citrus oils that provide a light scent and ylang-ylang that nourishes the scalp and promotes healthy hair.” (source)
The truth: What the….I knowwww there isn’t any beeswax in this!
What I loved about it: I like the idea behind it. Very rarely will you see a loc butter on the market sold by a major brand. So that’s exciting. It shows that there is a demand of products for ladies who are loc their hair. And since I’m one, I think that’s great!
What I didn’t like: The inclusion of beeswax.
Overall: From when I FIRST started loc'ing my hair, I was told by professionals and veteran loc'ers to NEVER put beeswax in my locs. Beeswax will assist your hair in loc’ing but it will also attract lint. And lint attracts dirt. Gross. I was all excited about Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter until I saw the ingredients.
See the beeswax? That’s so wrong. Other than that, the product itself looks and smells wonderful. I find that it is far too greasy to use on my locs but perhaps it would work better for folx who have more mature locs.
I wouldn’t recommend it though. Beeswax is a total no no. It scares me and while I know Carol's Daughter's intentions were good, I wish they would have given a little more thought behind this product.
