I’m excited to share another product review with you guys today!! (If you missed my Loc Moisturizing Gel review, you can read it here.)

But before we get to that, I want to give you a brief background on DreadlocKulture. 

One of the reasons I started this website was because I found a lot of misleading information on the web about dreadlock products. Without pointing fingers at any company in particular, I came across one too many sites selling wax or other hair products that contain harmful and damaging ingredients for locs (like these). 

A bit of research would tell you how bad those ingredients are for your hair, but the advertisements and cosmetic companies won’t be so straightforward about that.

We know that dreads are a hairstyle that requires an incredible amount of time, patience, and more importantly, a lot of attention and care. For this reason, I’m skeptical about dreadlock products and companies in general. 

Over the last few months, however, I’ve come to love one brand in particular. I truly believe they have their customer’s best interests in mind. If you’re not familiar with Lion Locs, let me introduce you to this amazing brand by giving you a review on their Rose Water Treatment spray. 

Let’s begin!

  • Packaging: Pass!
    The Rose Water Treatment comes packaged in a spray bottle. It’s sturdy and doesn’t leak, so you can confidently put it in your gym bag, purse, or wherever.

    The sprayer thing at the top (I don’t know the technical name for it?) sprays evenly, which is especially important in this case so that you don’t put too much product in one section of your hair versus none in another.
  • Ingredient check: Pass!
    The ingredients used in this conditioning spray are dreadlock-friendly! As per the label, it contains:
    • Rose Water: Rose water is amazing for your skin and hair. It softens your hair, adds shine, reduces oiliness, frizz, and dandruff (which by default will also reduce itchiness). It contains anti-inflammatory properties that are said to reduce eczema and psoriasis. 
    • Organic Aloe Leaf Juice: Aloe vera is one of my favorite natural remedies for relieving an itchy scalp. The gel provides your hair and scalp with much-needed moisture to keep it hydrated.
    • Vegetable Glycerin: Glycerin is a water-soluble humectant, meaning that it attracts and retains the moisture within your hair to prevent dryness, frizz, and breakage. It dissolves with water so it’s safe for dreads. 
    • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: In my opinion, this is one of the best oils for dreads. It contains hydrating properties, which encourage healthy hair growth and shine. It helps restore damaged and brittle hair, and helps treat scalp conditions like eczema and dandruff.
    • Virgin Sunflower Seed Oil: Sunflower seed oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E. It provides nourishment to your scalp and provides hydration to your hair follicles.  
    • Sweet Almond Oil: This is another amazing oil for your scalp and locs. It absorbs easily into your skin, thereby reducing sebum buildup and leaving no greasy feeling in your hair. It has healing and moisturizing properties that help to repair hair damage and scalp conditions like dermatitis, seborrhea, dandruff, and inflammation.
    • Castor Oil: Castor oil contains vitamins B, C, and E, as well as omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. These nutrients promote healthy hair growth, a healthy scalp, and lock in moisture.
    • Jojoba Oil: This is the oil that mimics your natural hair sebum the best. It contains vitamins A, B, D, and E, as well as antibacterial and moisturizing properties. It helps control the production of sebum to prevent an overly greasy or dry scalp. It’s lightweight and absorbs easily into your skin. Jojoba is a great oil for dreads! 
    • Safflower Seed Oil: Safflower seed oil has nourishing properties that protect your hair from sun damage and encourage blood circulation as well as promote shine. 
    • Argan oil: Argan oil provides many benefits for your hair, including increased shine and hydration, improved hair elasticity, vitamin E, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. This ingredient is known for strengthening your hair and helping it to grow faster.
    • Vitamins A & E: These vitamins are important for healthy hair growth.
    • Ylang-ylang oil: Ylang-ylang is highly beneficial for hair and is one of my top-rated essential oils for dreadlocks.
    • Naturally derived fragrance: In the cosmetic industry, companies do not have to reveal the ingredients that make up their fragrances in order to protect their scents from being copied by other companies. I trust that Lion Locs is being honest with respect to their claim that the fragrances used in this product are derived naturally.

This product is free from wax, dyes, sulfates, silicone, phthalates, polyethylene glycols (PEGs), mineral oils, and parabens.  

  • Residue-free test: Pass!
    As I do with other products, I did a patch test on my forearm before I sprayed it on my hair. This is the best way to tell if the product will leave residue— a sticky forearm will tell you it does.

    In my experience, the rose water treatment does not leave residue. My skin absorbed the spray nicely and it felt soft afterward. No sticky feeling whatsoever.
  • Consistency and feel: Pass!
    This spray has the same consistency as water. It’s lightweight and it makes my locs feel soft.
  • Smell: Depends on your preference (…for me it’s a pass!)
    Scents are definitely a matter of personal choice, so what smells amazing to me might not to you. That’s why I can’t rate it but I will say this— if you know what ylang ylang smells like, you’ll know what this spray smells like. If you don’t, let’s just say it’s very fruity.

    If you’re into fruity, this spray is definitely for you. 🙂 You may notice a faint scent of the rose water, but I think the ylang ylang essential oil overpowers it.

    Just like the Lion Locs Moisturizing Gel, the scent of this spray is long-lasting. The scent will last for hours in my hair. For comparison, I noticed that the scent from the homemade essential oil sprays I typically use will only last in my hair for an hour or so. 
  • Using it with dry hair vs. wet hair
    The label states that it’s designed to replenish and activate dry locs. While I tend to use it on dry locs, I don’t think it makes much of a difference if you spray it on wet locs too.

    I use it whenever I travel, when my hair feels dry, and when I want to give them a “scented boost”—especially after exercising or if I’m going to a special event.
  • Do I recommend Lion Locs Rose Water Treatment? YES!

    In a previous review, I raved about the Lion Locs Moisturizing Gel. And once again, I applaud Lion Locs for their Rose Water Treatment Conditioning Oil.

    If I could make any adjustments to the product, it would be to make a bigger bottle available. I feel that if I don’t ration it, I’ll run out too quickly. 😉

    Their products are pure quality! And I’m not the only one who thinks so— the grand majority of reviews on Amazon and Etsy are 5-stars.

Here’s the final consensus: If you’re needing a clean, residue-free solution to your dry locs, look no further than the Lion Locs Rose Water Treatment.It’s a great investment for the health of your dreadlocks.
