Someone recommended this, saying it was wax free but I'm still sketched out about products in general. Is anyone familiar with this product, good bad or otherwise?http://www.janecartersolution.com/Twist-Lock-4oz.html"With all natural butters, vitamins, and essential oils, Twist & Lock provides much-needed emoliency while increasing moisture and shine on your hair and scalp.

'Twist and Lock' product
I used twist and lock gel two or three times, during my first month... all it seemed to do was get my dreads all gel'ly... it dried pretty quickly, just like gel and then it was like nothing got used at all... and when I cut my dreads about three weeks ago, when I inspected the insides of them and it didn't look like there was any residue in them at all... just a bit of lint here and there... so, I'd say you can use it, sparingly, without any problems, but without any real help, either.
seems like its mostly to moisturize/condition the dreads, which is great in the later phases of dreads once they've matured but not in the early stages, it might actually hinder the early locking process if they are conditioned too much.most of the ingredients are similar to what you would make a lotion or conditioner with: emulsifiers, oils, and preservatives...one or two of the ingredients in there i don't recognize, and i just woke up so i'm being kinda lazy about looking things up. gimme like an hour unless someone gets to it before me
