Brambleroots does not strongly advocate the use of commercial holding products (e.g., gels, pomades, creams) in locks. If you choose to use products in your locks, try to use a little product as possible, and use it as infrequently as possible. However, beware to never use wax.
If you choose to use product in your hair, try to use as little as possible. Understand the uses and limitations of products, as well. Product cannot successfully rid of all frizz; only time and the maturation process can do that. Product is intended to encourage new growth to form in a particular shape. Do not try to glob product into baby locks to make them appear more mature, because that can cause many problems down the line.
