My Thoughts
I recently featured Nicole` from Irie Essentialz here on Glam Natural Life. In her feature she revealed that she owns a handmade all natural product line. Of course, I had to get my hands on these products so I can review for you guys. I was most interested in the scalp because my scalp is always dry as I suffer from eczema. I have also gotten lots of questions from you guys about what to do to relieve dry scalp.

The Oil came in a spray bottle with a really good nozzle. I liked how the oil came out the nozzle in a mist form so it was easy to spray my scalp and know that it is being distributed evenly. The smell was so to die for. The bath room smelled so calming like a spa by the time I was done applying the oil to my scalp and hair.

Application: I applied the oil to my scalp and massaged it in and rub my oily hand down the shaft of my hair.

My Results: I have tried Jane Carter’s Nourishing Scalp Oil which cost $22 for a 1oz bottle and it did nothing for my scalp. This Irie Essentialz Hair and Scalp oil cost $10 for 2oz and it does what it said it would. My scalp was moisturized. Days after using it I noticed no flacks or dry patches. And let me tell you something, going 3-4 days without applying oil to my scalp is a big disaster. My scalp would have so much flakes that I just have to wash my hair. This Oil blend was well absorbed into my scalp. I loved how my scalp and hair felt and I love the smell of this blend. I am pleased. I recommend this product!

  • My scalp felt really moisturized and retained moisture
  • Price is affordable at $10 for 2oz and $16 for 4oz
  • A little goes a long way

  • None!

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?


I have tried many shampoos in my locs to determine what is the best clarifying shampoo for locs that will give us that deep cleansing action that we need periodically.   First, lets talk about what is a clarifying shampoo and how to effectively use them in your locs. Clarifying shampoos are meant to deep clean your hair/locs - removing all dirt, oils, products and debris. However, clarifying shampoos can be quite harsh on the hair leaving it dry and brittle but clean. Because of the drying effect, I highly recommend following up with an oil rinse or a moisturizing shampoo. If you use conditioner in you locs, then you can go straight to conditioning. Sadly, not all clarifying shampoos are made equal and thus not all effectively clarify the hair/locs. I have tried many different clarifying shampoos that leave my hair dry and feels squeaky clean but I can clearly see that it is still dirty. Even shampoos that I swore by when i was loose natural and even in the first few years of m
