A conditioner for locs

Looking for a conditioner for your dry locs? Here’s one to try, and it’s not at your local beauty supply.

It is this: Essations Naked Honey & Almond Moisture Whip Conditioner.

Naked-Honey-and-Almond-ConditionerOne touch of the conditioner will tell you that it is like none other you’ve tried. It is soft, light and creamy to the touch and absorbs quickly, leaving no residue. This is key for locs as buildup is a no-no. Secondly, it leaves the skin soft to the touch. This is great for the scalp as well as locs. Thirdly, this conditioner provides strength and moisture to locs. It adds strength with protein and elasticity. It adds moisture with honey and sweet almond oil, whipped in a powerful soufflé that targets dryness. The end result: softer locs and ultimately, longer lengths over time.

How to use? After shampooing, place on locs, slip on a plastic cap and sit under a heated dryer for fifteen minutes. Then rinse. Seal the deal by finishing with a light oiling of the scalp and locs, then dry.

This is a salon product, so you will need to go to a beauty supply that supplies salons. I went to Jordan Beauty Supply on It is also available online. By the way, the size pictured is 8 oz. I bought the salon supply size of 64 ounces, because my locs are longer.

Enjoy your holiday today, and happy Easter!

Also, on Sunday, May 4th, I will be joining in a panel discussion, The Proud Lady Natural Hair Care Forum, at the AHBAI Proud Lady Beauty Show, at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Illinois. Thanks to Amazon and Nadra Smiley of Amazon Natural Essentials, LLC for inviting me to be a part of the forum. For more information and tickets, go to http://www.ahbai.org. If you’re local, I’ll see you there!
