Nubian Kinks Locing Pomade

I've watched plenty of the Nubian Kinks styling videos on Youtube, but was never really tempted to purchase their products until recently. I typically make my own concoction for twisting my locks, but I found that I need a bit more hold than that provides now since my locks are getting longer, so I ordered their Locing Pomade. It is on a slight back order, so be warned in advance. It took about a week and a half to arrive, but I wasn't pressed to get it, so I wasn't put out by the wait. It's also very affordable, I got the 8 oz jar for $15. That jar will probably last me a while since a little goes a long way with this product!

I just washed and styled my hair last night so I decided to use the Nubian Kinks locing pomade. Due to it's creamy and light color appearance I wasn't sure it would work in my locks, but it isn't heavy and simply melts into your lock. It doesn't contain any mineral oils, beeswax, or petroleum that typically cause build up or residue on hair. They don't lie in their advertisements that it provides shine and hold. It's absolutely great stuff. It's definitely Haitian_Hunny/Nat approved!!!! I think I'll try their Liquid Hair Vitamin and Hair Oils mixture next!

If you decide to try it, please let me know how it works for you!

Here's a video from their Youtube Channel that shows how to use this product while braiding your locks to achieve the crinkled look:

Locked Style of the Month: Bantu Knot Mohawk

Here's a great lock style that I came across on a lock group on Facebook. It's a flat twist/bantu knot faux-hawk style. I love it, what do you think? I'm sure it yields great curls when it's taken down as well, which makes it a whole new style, bonus!!!

Here are some additional shots from the back and the other side:

Gorgeous style, no?

Inspirations and blessings,
