Well look at that! A product specifically for me. My hair is not only natural but it is loc’d as well. I fit in a pretty small group so I was elated to see a product just for me!
But does it work?
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: What the duck? There is beeswax in it?
Overall: It’s been a year since I’ve been loc’ing my hair. I couldn’t be happier. Loc’ing your hair is truly a journey and it’s important to use products that are nourishing to the scalp and locs. From when I FIRST started, I was told 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.
This is how the loc’ies looked after using this stuff…
I did a video that talks about my Locs at 1 Year.
