    Please do an article next time that is either about dreads or includes dreads.

    I always feel that because I have locs that sometimes my identity as a ‘natural’ is invalid.

    Except for brief forays into relaxing, I’ve been natural all my life. Everyone is different, but the sealant that works for me is castor oil, the kind sold in health food stores.
    It makes my medium texture hair SOFT, but I’m still trying to find the exact amount to use that doesnt leave my hair greasy-feeling for days.
    Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a castor oil/ Argan oil combination under a moisturizing leave-in conditioner that’s working very well.Leaves my hair curly, not frizzy.
