I tend to lean towards natural fatty oils for conditioning locs instead of traditional conditioners. Regular conditioners leave residue inside the locs because they contain slipping waxes and liquid plastics to detangle the hair. Locs should be conditioned with hot oils like evening primrose, olive and coconut oils, you even use these oils for retightening the locs instead of gels and waxes, conditioners will weight your locs down over time, causing build-up, thinning of the lock base and bacteria to grow. Use oils instead.
