Loc’d Ladies, I have a question? Have you ever looked around for great hair cleansers only to find out that they either had oils* or conditioning agents in them? Okay, so y’all I’m going to pause for a second, because I know that many ladies that may be reading this are probably saying, “What’s wrong with that?
Those things can be beneficial to natural hair right? Well, of course they can; for us ladies that have loose hair especially, these type of cleansers are very beneficial but for locs, it can be a whole different ball game.
Being a former loc’d lady myself (I was loc’d for a year and enjoyed it), I know that one of the battles that I had and that I know many women and men have is the dreaded BUILDUP.
Ugh, buildup can be a pain in the butt, whether you have 2 month old baby locs or 20 year old matured ones. If you have been trying to find a great cleanser for your locs, look no further, because below we have two great cleansers that you can use on your precious locs. Say goodbye to lint and dirt and say hello to gorgeous clean locs!
1. Kinky Curly Come Clean Moisturizing Shampoo
Ingredients: Purified water, organic mandarin orange fruit, organic marigold flower, organic white willow bark, organic sea kelp, c14-16 olefin, sulfonate and cocamidopropyl betaine (coconut* derived), citric acid, sea salt, phenoxyethanol, natural fragrance
Kinky* Curly Come Clean Moisturizing Shampoo is a really great shampoo for baby and mature locs. There are so many benefits for locs when it comes to this shampoo, see below:
This shampoo contains no oils* or super conditioning agents. This is great because you would not have to worry about buildup from your cleanser. If you have baby locs, then you wouldn’t have to worry about your locs loosening up even further which can stall the locking process.
This is a great swimmers shampoo. This shampoo contains chelating agents that can get rid of chlorine and hard water build up. This is perfect for those who live in cities that have hard water buildup and for those who love to swim daily.
Its not super stripping. Although this shampoo is clarifying, it does not strip your hair of every drop of sebum that it have, which is a good thing. However, if you are worried about your hair being too dry, you can always dilute a capful with a cup of water.
The only con that this shampoo may have is its price. This shampoo can cost around 12.00, which may be too high of a price, but personally for me it was worth it and a little went a long way so it lasted a while.

I used Jason’s Tea Tree Clarifying Shampoo (bought at the local health food store) for the first time a few weeks ago and was very happy with the results. Immediately my locs felt lighter and more flexible. I could tell that it had removed a lot of unnecessary buildup that was making them stiff and lifeless. Don’t recall what forum I read the suggestion in but so glad I cam across it….can’t wait to see the transformation as I use it on a regular basis jf this first wash is any indicator.
