View Full Version : If you love updos but your hair's too slippy, you can try this....

There was nothing that was working for me, and I really wanted to see if I liked wearing updos, which I certainly do!! I tries relentlessly for a few months. These two products work for me - since I always wear updos, one of these is always in my hair (don't have to use too much), but if you'd like to wear one once in a while - you could always do it before wash day. The first method I tried was castor oil on my length, and then maybe I'll just give the crown of my head a 'pat' with my palm. The other product I use is African Gold Super Rich Formula Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner. This works extremely well for me. It does have petrolatum in it, but this is good for me because it locks my moisture in and keeps the drier air out, which works nicely for that. (There's a whole controversy about petrolatum, and I have my own views on that, but we won't go there here!!) Both these products put just enough 'grip' on my slippy hair for an updo!

I'm glad you found things that work for this. I know many others have this problem too.
