  1. I try to keep my routine as simple as possible. I wash with shampoo every week and a half, cowash weekly (sometime every 3 or 4 days), use a leave in and seal with a light oil. I also use a thick butter on my ends to keep them protected. That simple! If I were to win, I would swap my normal shampoo for Carol's Daughter then use the Conditioner as a deep conditioner after I shampoo.

    Thx for the giveaway! :D

  2. Hey sis....as far as my routine goes, I have locs which require moisture. Which is why I would benefit from trying this shampoo. I have heard and read about the product and it does not strip oils from the hair. Often I will also use a water free shampoo with lavender in between washes (I wash my hair every 3 weeks depending on my level of fitness activity). As for the in between times, I oil my scalp every other day and use a moisturizer whenever my ends feel dry. I use ACV and baking soda rises every other wash to remove lint and dust and to stimulate my follicles. So far I have been really impressed with the way my locs are growing by using these simple methods. I will also note that I do not interlock very frequently as I really like the feeling of thick roots and I found during the first time I grew locs (for 6 years) there was too much interlocking going on and my roots were thin. So I use pipe cleaner's to create curl in between an interlocking session as well as fabric wraps and hats. Oh and let me not forget, I speak to my locs; sending good, wholesome, healing, energy. Positive energy can make anything happen!
    Thanks for offering the giveaway....looking forward to trying out the product :-)

  3. @Destinee your routine sounds very simple and effective. What oils I you use? Do you have problems with oil not penetrating your air adding the moisture you need?
    Thanh you for participating in my giveaway appreciated.

  4. @Ahmahkyah thank you for entering my giveaway. I try not to interlock my hair often either. I sed to do it every 6 weeks and my lock would not form that quickly resulting in some of my locks looking thinner than how they are. I also like to do protective hairstyles as well.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. What are the ingredients first......

    Anyway, I think this is so wonderful synethia that you are reaching out to your fans and spreading your blessings. Natural hair is such a beautiful thing and if you can touch anyone, even if it is just one other person, you have done and outstanding job. We all adore you.

  6. @Kandake thank you. I know that it is quite difficult for us naturalists so I am happy to she my ideas with you all.

  7. I wash my hair every two weeks with Suave's clarifying shampoo and condition with Renpure Organics Conditioner. Since my hair is color treated, I try and deep condition with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Conditioner. As well as, experimenting using different oils for a deep conditioner. My hair is still pretty dry and I've heard really good things about how well the shampoo and conditioner keeps the hair moisturized really well. So I know this would work well for me. Thanks again!

  8. @Taylor thank you for comment and sharing your hair routine. The clarifying shampoo cleanse your hair very well but also strips your hair of it's natural moisture hence leaving it very dry. Also because you also color your hair, it tend to make your hair dry as well. I would suggest switching to a more moisturizing shampoo like one from the Shea Moisture Line or Dr. Bonner's Tea Tree Shampoo.

  9. Hey Syn!

    I love your site I'm on here everyday looking at your beautiful locs...I'm a new loc head... i just started my 3 months ago and I'm loving it. I wash with lemon fluffy and shea moisture shampoo. I love trying new oils and shampoos on my hair. I would like to try new stuff in my hair because the cold weather is starting to dry my hair out.

  10. Synethia, have you ever tried using shikakai or amla oils/powders in your hair? I used a mixture of shikakai and amla powder, neem, coconut and olive oil, honey and lemon rind in my hair today. My hair feels so light and refreshed. I shampooed my hair once after I left the treatment in for about 1 hour.

    Let me know your thoughts,

  11. Thank you for sharing your routine Nichole. Welcome to the lock club and I hope you will have a great journey. If you have any questions along the way please do ask ad I will try my best to help.

  12. Hi Ahmahkyah, no I have never tried the shikakai oils/powder. I will google it and see the benefits. Sounds like it will help with moisture retention because it have honey which attracts and traps moisture as well as some great oils.

  13. I generally wash my hair every two weeks deepending on activity level and one of those washes is an acv baking soda wash or a wash with a clarifying shampoo (suave) as was prone to dry scalp/dandruff. For moisture I use either almond oil or castor and olive blend. I have never used a regular conditioner as I have been told by professionals it causes build up but notice my 5 year old locs need moisture annd have heard nothing but good things about the monoi set from those who wear locs. I would use the shampoo bi weekly and the conditione monthly perhaps even more ofen as the weather is getting colder here and i want growth not damag! Going to also try the dr bronners and bennotine clay for lint! Thanks for all the ideas!!!

  14. You are welcome Cassie. Thank you for sharing your hair routine. Most times I don't use conditioner in my hair because after shampoo it is very soft and moist I don't think I need it. Also, when I do my new growth do not lock fast enough since my hair naturally is soft and frizzy.

    Wow that is nice that your daughter have locs must be cute.
