My Locing Series: Live Locs Product Tutorial

Being a Naturalista isn’t easy, right? Well, I completely understand the struggle. On my blog, I love to share natural products that we can use to nurture  and style our hair.  Ok, we have talked about products for curly, straight, and coarse hair, but what about products that can maintain the health of dreadlocks? No matter what hair texture you have, natural hair needs love too and that’s why the new company that I found caters to your needs. Yes,  I have featured products from many hair companies, but everybody deserves to have options.

This post is specifically for my ladies or guys with growing locs, including  those who are just starting the locing process just like me. This company is the number one recommendation on my list for loc care. Live Locs makes products that are  filled with indescribable healing properties, along with providing long lasting moisture without clogging the hair follicles. Below is review video revealing the products and the powerful ingredients.

Products Featured
Tea & Mint Rehab Dextox Cleanser

Argan & Pequi Oil Shine Spray

 

 

The first product that I’m going to show you, deserves the number one spot.

Tea & Mint Rehab Dextox Cleanser

My first time using this cleanser was the best experience of my life. The active ingredients of the menthol and green tea components gave my scalp a therapeutic treatment. Honestly, I remember back in 2013, I had locs and I felt that no matter what cleanser I used, my scalp just didn’t feel clean. I love the cooling effect and my hair doesn’t feel stripped of it’s natural oils. You will see me talking this cleanser even more in the video.

Here is what’s inside:

INGREDIENTS: Water, Potassium Cocoate*, Potassium Oleate*, Lauryl Betaine, Glycerin*, Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Palm Kernelate, Palm Kernal Acid, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract, Decyl Glucoside, Natural Fragrance, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Potassium Citrate, Menthol

*certified organic

 

 

 

Borage & Flaxseed Follicle Strengthening Oil

2.

 

The hair growth serum!!! I love this oil, just love it so much. The smell is not offensive and helped my hair to become smoother from the roots, all the way to the tips. In dry climates, I notice that my scalp feels very dry and itchy, so I really appreciate this hair oil. My mother and sister currently have crochet braids, so this oil  couldn’t have came at the perfect time.

 

Here is the ingredients for this miracle oil:

Borage & Flaxseed Follicle Strengthening Oil is an essential step to any loc care regimen. This completely plant-based product penetrates deep within your follicle roots to help support a stronger and more healthier scalp to promote hair growth.

– Unique Blend: Black Current, Borage, Flaxseed, Walnut Oils, Omega 3, 6 an 9.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.Argan & Pequi Oil Shine Spray

This shine spray is the finishing touch to my protective styles and you will see me use this in part 2 of my locing series. The smell of the argan oil & pequi is amazing and the shine lasts for two days. I have used shine sprays in the past, but they just didn’t give me the coverage that I wanted.

 

Here are the ingredients for the shine spray:

Argan & Pequi Oil Shine Spray is your natural alternative to silicones. It only takes a few spritzes of this completely plant-based sheen to provide a lustrous shine that holds up against external factors like humidity , heat and the extreme cold.

 

 

 

Now that you’ve heard all about the powerful ingredients within each of the products, let’s talk about hair styles. Please watch both of my videos below.

Yes, I’m talking about a product line that caters to all of our needs. We are going into the two season where tank tops are worn and the wind is blowing, so everything has to be right! You deserve to feel free and unchained when it comes to your beauty, so having organic products to support your wishes is my passion. Thankfully, I’ve found the perfect company that has the same fire to match my passion.

The Phoenix K Creations focuses on Raw & Organic Beauty Products with Herbal Remedies that Detoxifies. Here is my video review and  thoughts about all three of Phoenix K Creations products.

 

 

Products Featured:
Happy Hair Oil
Conditioning Hair Mask
Pore Minimizing Face Mask

 

The first product on our list is the Happy Hair oil!

  1. 16839566_1783643521962470_2064935944_n

I like to call this my 2 minute hair miracle! Currently, I have natural hair, so I try to do a lot of hair treatments. Honestly, weather your hair  is naturally curly or straight, proper moisturizing treatments is vital in repairing each hair strand and follicle. This is why having a reliable hair oil is great from hydrating the scalp and hair growth. Personally speaking, I use this hair oil every night and my hair has been looking even more healthier.

This oil strengthens and deeply nourishes your hair, preventing split ends and decreasing their appearance. It hydrates the scalp, balancing sebum production to correct oily or dry hair. Specially formulated to increase blood circulation, promoting hair growth and restoring natural sheen. This organic blend is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids making it ideal for treating and preventing hair loss, premature greying and environmental damage. The side effects of this oil are tangle free hair, hair holding a style much easier, hair growth going into overdrive and no more frizzy fly aways!

Here is the full nutrition details for the powerful oils in this Hair oil and styling benefits. Happy Hair Information

The Conditioning Hair Mask  really gave my hair a deep treatment. I followed the directions for the mask and then applied it to my scalp and hair. The consistency was semi thin and had a floral scent. Mind you, this was my first time trying a hair mask in the form of a powder. Usually, I used cream masks  in hair and it worked too, so trying another method was a breath of fresh air and my mother enjoyed the powder mask too.

Here is a photo with the conditioning mask already in my hair:

After applying the mask, I followed the recommended time and just waited for the magic to happen. As the moments went by, my hair was getting hard  and I proceeded to rinsing it out  in the shower. The final results was astonishing! My hair felt moisturized, revitalized, and cleansed, because using so many hair products during the week took a toll.

 

This mask hydrates the scalp balancing sebum production to correct oily or dry hair, and increases blood circulation promoting hair growth and restoring natural sheen. This organic herb and clay blend is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids to strengthen and nourish your hair. The combination of detoxification and nourishment makes this hair mask ideal for treating and preventing hair loss, premature greying, environmental damage and dandruff. Rhassoul clay is unlike any other clay because it actually adds moisture to your hair instead of pulling out your natural oils. Despite being gentle and hydrating it still is an efficient detoxifying agent to remove product buildup and thoroughly cleanse your hair and scalp.

Directions: Mix at least 1/3 cup clay with filtered water until clay is very liquidy. Avoid using metal when mixing since metal decreases the clays pulling ability. Apply to hair and scalp, cover with a shower cap and leave 30-45 minutes. Can be applied to wet or dry hair, but more water should be added when applying to dry hair.

Organic Ingredients: Rhassoul Clay, Calendula, Horsetail, Hibiscus Flower, Basil, Amla, Reishi, Parsley, Brahmi, Marshmallow, Rosemary, Chamomile, Arnica, Burdock Root.

The Pore Minimizing Mask topped the whole product excursion! After I used the hair mask, you can say that I did the full course and used the face mask too. I followed the instructions, mixed the mask in a bowl and you will see the finished product in the video below as well. Note: My face was not dry after washing off the mask and I felt like my skin gained more moisture than it had before.

 

Here is a photo of me with the mask on and I will wash it off on camera.

This mask deeply hydrates and nourishes your skin while thoroughly exfoliating it leaving behind healthy, baby soft skin. It shrinks enlarged pores creating smoother, younger looking skin and preventing dirt, oil and makeup from building up in your pores, thus preventing Acne breakouts as well. The wonderful selection of organic herbs in this blend were picked for their ability to increase skin elasticity, diminish wrinkles and even skin tone. Treat your face to a high dose of antioxidants to prevent and reverse environmental damage to your lovely skin!

Directions: Mix one-two tbsp. clay with filtered water until clay falls easily off the spoon. Avoid using metal when mixing since metal decreases the clays pulling ability. Apply a liberal layer, let dry, place a warm washrag over your face, then gently massage off in small circular motion. Apply your favorite oil or go bare and enjoy the natural hydration from the Rhassoul Clay.
