My Shampoo of choice for my sisterlocks

8:49 AM

Now that I don’t have use the starter shampoo any more. I'm left with wondering what type of shampoo I should use for my sisterlocks. I could go with the next sisterlocks shampoo choice, but I wanted something that I could buy at a store, and not have delivered. So I went ahead and did some research on shampoos for my sisterlocks, and my requirement was very simple, I was looking for a shampoo that does not leave much of a residue, does not weight down my locks, and also leave my hair looking and feeling clean. While browsing through sisterlocks blogs, I came upon the Aura Rejuvenating Shampoo, Rosemary Mint by Naturelle.

I read some more online reviews and base on that, I decided to buy it. This product remind me of the starter shampoo with a better scent. It really does clean and stripe out much of the grinds for that particular week. Some of the reviewers feel it strips out too much (hence why I consider this shampoo a clarifier), but they all agree that it does clean your hair. I purchase the conditioner as well, but didn’t use it, as advised by my consultant, but it was on special, and I got a second bottle of conditioner for free. You can buy it at Sally Beauty Supply store. All and all, I highly recommend this shampoo, and if you are looking for a shampoo that clean and smells divine, then this will be a great pick. I love trying new product, so if you have another one that you think I should try, let me know.

  3. Hi Kreyola! I have just started my DIY microlocks journey this month and finding your blog is a of very great help for me :) ! I was wondering if you have switched shampoo, and also, what is your current routine? Are you using petroleum - based products or do you flee them? What is a good shampoo for you? Does it really help to do a bicarbonate wash? Sorry if I am asking so much (and sorry for my english I'm french so english is tough for me ^^!) I wish you awesome Holidays :) !

    1. I will release an update on my routine; I have changed it a bit since my locks are more mature now. I never used petroleum on my hair, even when I was a natural. You need to stay away from them as well, especially now that you are locked. Those will cause build up and lint issues.

      A good shampoo for me is whatever contains SLS or something similar. Yes it is drying, but I found those type of shampoo cleans my locks the best. Remember you can always restore moisture to your hair but build up for a long period of time is much harder to get rid of. I don't know what is a bicarbonate wash, so I'm sure it is not needed (whatever it is).

      Your English is fine and trust when I said I would be the last person to pick on that since my grammar etc. is not that great either…keep asking the question, I have thing to look up…such as this “bicarbonate wash lol.

  4. Again thanks a lot for your reply ^^! About the bicarbonate wash, I'm so sorry, but it a translation issue. You have already discuss this here: . In french, "baking soda" is " bicarbonate de soude" haha! However, I'm part of the "keep it simple" team so if I understand the importance of preventing buildups and have a good shampoo. And no petrolum based products. I will wait for your routine update before I ask more questions ;) (if I can wait ^^!) !

    1. Ahh...that what you meant lol. Since I have been using product that contain SLS or similar (normally they have clarifier stated on the label) I have found that I don't need to do a BSW or ACV Rinse. So if you don't mind the shampoos I have listed here as good clarifier, you may not need to do it either.

  5. Hi, what do you use as a conditioner? Do you use a leave in conditioner?

    1. I don't do leave in conditioners, but currently I have to say I'm loving the Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil OGX Shampoo & Conditioner. They have done wonder to my scalp and I will continue to rave about them lol.

      Note: If I use conditioners I tend to stick with the ones that comes the original shampoo because I think they are made to combat whatever the shampoo stripes out (just my two cent on the matter).
