| What Happens After We Over Straighten Our Natural Hair? »
I thought this would be of use to many of you. Mack is a follower of Natural Hair Journey, and time to time he has reached out to me, to find if he is on the right track on his locking journey.
Here is his recent inquiry.
It's Mack again. First I want to thank you for your advice on not oiling my hair to much. It was very helpful and has worked out well for me.
It's been 6 months since I have had my locks now and they are coming along very well. My hair stylist has been braiding my locks back when I re twist and this has worked well for me because I run marathons. As a runner I have been wearing dry fit hats to hold the locks in place but i sweat a lot. Is the sweat helpful or harmful for my locks and scalp?
My second question to you is about re twisting product. My stylist uses Organic Root stimulator Lock and twist gel. what do you think of this product? Is there any other things I can use when re twisting or should i just stay with what i've been using?
RESPONSE BY THE NATURAL HAIR COACH:
Hello Mack Exilus,
Good to hear from you again. I am pleased to hear that the tips I shared with you, have been of value to you.As for your first question: If sweat is harmful to your locks?
No it is not, however if you do not wash your locks weekly or biweekly, the locks will develop an odor caused by mildew that will be difficult to wash out with regular shampoo.
Question 2: What do I think of Organic Root Stimulator?
I have never used it, but with any product, moderation is the key. Actually less is best in my books. If you find that this product has worked for you, and your locks do not have any build up or look dull. Then carry on with it. If you see results which ever way, there is your answer.
Hope this has been of some help to you.
Thanks for your support.
Your Natural Hair Coach
