Organic Root Stimulator Lock & Twist Gel Horror.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it is not really a product for backcombing styles. It says locks, but refers to the way black people start locks - i.e. comb coils or one- or two-strand twists. The picture of black women on the cover should have been a clue that it is not for your hair type.I have been using this product on my locks for over a year (my first attempt was in October 2011, but I continued to use the product on my 3C/4A curls after I took them out after a month) with no problems. It is what I used to create my comb coils to start my locks and to maintain them when I palmroll (although it's more like a fingerroll since my locks are smallish).One thing, is you can't use them on back combing. It is not meant for that kind of style. Like any gel, it will get stuck and gloop up if you put too much or on hair which it sounds like you did. My hairdresser (yes, I went to a hairdresser because I am too impatient when it comes to parting my hair evenly) watered it down a little for the initial twists, but I use the pure product, one small pinch for each lock (my hair is about 36 cm long in general and 3C/4A http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types
) when I retwist.Don't knock a product that didn't work for you if you don't use it the way it's supposed to be used. This product is always highly recommended by hair stylists because it does work. Just not for all situations.
