COCONUT OIL L♥VE

While Salkis is no longer Sisterlock'd she is STILL kickin' wisdom and knowledge.

After seeing her video on coconut oil for ORAL CARE, I did further research and now I am full out "oil pulling"!!

Have you heard of OP? Or, am I the only LATE ONE on this powerful healing practice?!?
I already use oils for hair and skin care: EVOO, coconut oil, etc.

 Start like I did with Salkis Re's video on CO for OC... Check it out! :-)

Move Over Knotty Boy: Sanaa Zuri Conditions Sisterlocks!

Used with permission of Sanaa Zuri's Skin Care Solutions, LLC
Loc'd hair thrives on products that are residue –free and offer moisture, but not to the point of causing the loc to swell even after it’s dry. Using Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA- a natural emollient that softens and soothes the hair & scalp while adding sheen,  I experienced locs that were soft to the touch. I initially used Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula as a leave-in conditioner that I applied to my already dry and curled Sisterlocks. I used about a nickel-size amount in my hand that I applied throughout my dry and pipe-cleaner curled SLs. I just knew that I was about to lose all my curls being that the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner instantly softened my hair to the touch. To my surprise days later I still had curls!! I had merely followed my normal nightly regimen when I have curls: stuff my locs into a fishnet-like cap at night. It seemed that even scrunching my hair in the cap curled it more. I had not added anymore Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula to my hair. I applied Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula to my daughters’ locs and they too had the same effect. WE LOVE the Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA for our Sisterlocks!!

On my other daughter’s loose virgin hair however using Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula used as directed (applied and rinsed out completely) made the detangling process a BEAST…but once we got past that task and began flat ironing her hair, I was astonished at how few swipes of the flat iron was required to reveal super straightened, soft and shiny hair. My daughter’s hair remained straight and shiny days beyond her usual touch-ups again with the flat-iron.
  
My guess is that whatever the calendula does to the hair to “tangle it” is BENEFICIAL and just WORKS for loc-wearers. The result is a tighten loc whether the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA is used as a leave-in or applied and rinsed out completely.  I think loc-wearer have a NEW ALTERNATIVE in conditioning locs. DISCLAIMER: Both the daughters’ and my Sisterlocks ARE MATURE and can stand conditioning.  However, I do have some locs that have broken off and now are NOT loc’d to the end. These broken off ends must seal all over again and so far I’m  LOVIN’ how the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA  seems to moisturize, strengthen and  LOCK (tangle) the ends in a manner that seems, in my opinion, to promote accelerated locking. PLEASE TAKE NOTE that these are MY CLAIMS and NOT that of Sanaa Zuri's Skin Care Solutions, LLC.  I’m just saying…it worked like that for my Sisterlock’d hair... My hair has never softer, yet TIGHT... and I ♥ it! It's the best of both worlds...
