Should You Use Oil or Loc Gel For Retwist Your Locs?
There is a debate going on about whether to use oil or gel to re-twist your locs.
Let us dissect the properties of each product before we make a final decision.
Oils by nature are in liquid form while the gel is very firm and sticky. Now when retwisting your locs you need a product that will hold the hair and the flyaways in place. Hence, you would lean more to the gel. The gel has a sticky substance that will stick or hold the hairs together. However, there are gels products out there that do no good for your locs. When retwisting it leaves the locs feeling dry, with flakes and product residue.
The best option is to use our peculiar roots Braids, Loc & Twist Firm Hold Pomade. The pomade is of a similar consistency to gel. It is firm, sticky and can be used to hold your hairs into place. Not only is it good for retwisting locs but you can use it for your braids, twists, or any other natural hairstyle. It is vegan friendly as it is made with all-natural plant ingr2dients. The minerals from the ingredients will penetrate your locs to hydrate, adds shine, soften and hold the hairs into place. More importantly, it does not leave residue and flakes that make our locs look like we have dandruff. Ingredients:
The first ingredient is it's very important to water. Remember water is one of the best hydration for our hair. The h20 penetrates the hair shaft and gives it what it needs to stay healthy. Also, it contains glycerine which is a natural humectant. Humectants take moisture from the air and provide it to our hair. So, you know that the pomade will not dry out your locs as it is giving it moisturization. And finally, pomegranate seed oil. This natural oil will absorb into the hair and condition the hair shaft it provides shine and softens. But I bet you’re wondering where the ingredient for the sticky consistency is. This ingredient is the copolymer. It’s found in most hair sprays, gels, waxes, styling creams, and pomade like ours it’s what gives the hold factor that we desire for our hair. It keeps the hair into place and prevents it from moving.
