Black Earth Lock It Up Gel- Tight Hold

Black Earth Lock It Up Gel- Tight Hold

6 fluid ounces
$8.00
Quantity:
This light, non-greasy formula has natural ingredients that enhance the natural curl of chemical free hair. This makes it easier to start and maintain locks. A great alternative to bees wax or other similar products which can build up and weigh the hair down. Excellent for retouching the roots of locked hair during lock grooming. For best results, sit under a hooded dryer after use. Lock it up penetrates the hair shaft and adds moisture to the hair without leaving a gummy feeling. Lock it up dries leaving the hair soft and shiny.
Deionized Water, Polyquaterium 37, VP DMAP/Acrylate Copolymer Seed Oil, Yarrow Root, Propylene Glycol, Indian Hemp, Rosemary, Diazolidnyl Urea, Nettle, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance

This looks like an interesting product to buy, but why does it have parabens in it? I was disappointed to find out that it's not all natural.

Expected a different type of hold...
April 22, 2014
...but I was pleasantly surprised! It's a good, soft hold. Even if I put in a lot, as long as it evenly distributed in my hair with a fine tooth comb, my style has no flakes. I have a style that's been holding for the past 4 days and it's soft! This never happens with any other gel.

I love it!!
April 4, 2011
I really love this product. It goes on easily and holds very well. Because it has a damp texture, without being greasy, it alliviates the need to spray repeatedly while twisting before getting under the dryer. In fact, I've tried it without using the dryer and it works just as well. My twisted locs have a strong hold and don't feel hard or crusty as with most gel hold products. I have been able to moisturize, oil, condition, etc and use this product on top of everything else, and still get a good hold. I just tie it down with my new G-Wrap Nylon Head Scarf, and go to sleep, do housework, or gardening--a few hours later and its done!

Love the Scent!
September 8, 2013
I decided to try a different product than usually use for my two stranded twists. This product was indeed a refreshing change! I love the clean, coconut scent and the way it molds my twists without greasy buildup. My husband loves the way my hair smells, too. It has great holding power, and it doesn't flake. Five stars!
Best Uses:
Best for use immediately after washing hair, or on dry hair. Can also be used for a touch up or for refreshing your hair if you haven't time to wash it.

Good Product
August 21, 2013
I recently purchased this product because the loc gel I usually buy is no longer available. This product is not as creamy as I like, but it works well and there is not build up. I apply it generously and sit under the dryer to ensure it sets. But I am pleased with the product.

I have fallen in love with this gel. I used it to define my curl pattern after a co-wash it was great my hair felt soft to the touch it wasn't hard at all. The product was better than what I expected I plan to buy more in the future. This would have to be my new go to gel.

I purchase the Black Earth Lock It Up Gel- Tight Hold as the title states for my Locks. A few people have asked what shop do you go to for your locks and what do they use? My wife does my locks and I use Lock It Up Gel. Here is the kicker My wife locks are done at a shop, our daughter always say mine look better that her. What you need to understand is with LOVE & Lock It Up Gel. That's all it takes LOVE & Lock It Up Gel.

Great hold for my hair that was previously hard to hold
May 20, 2011
My hair when I was using the product before I discovered Black Earth Tight Hold Gel, would be frizzy and not holding on the ends.very soon after I used my other products.

Black Earch lock it up Gel-tight hold
April 16, 2011
These appears to be doing a good job. Need to give it a few more weeks to make final decision. It seems I have to use a bit more than my other product I was happy with so with that said cost may be similar. Gel has a weird feel, sort of gritty from the bottle compared to normal gel but goes on easy and seems to do a good job of holding the curl and keeping the frizz away.

Review for Black Earth Lock It Up Gel- Tight Hold
February 3, 2011
I like the hold and I LOVE how it doesn't flake. I used all these other gels that claim there is no flaking but that was never true. The container is little but I don't use gel on my hair that often so this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
