@Prophet30 and @nrs11979 - I advise you to *not* use wax when loc'ing your hair. Although it may not be true for everyone, I've seen and heard stories about the wax making the loc hard in feel, attracting lint, and discoloring the hair.

As a free form natural, you look for products with "slip" to detangle the hair. The opposite is true when you are loc'ing. When I was loc'ed, I had locticians helping me maintain it every 8 weeks or so. They used water and a dark gel -- I'm sorry, i can't recall the name of the gel, but i do remember that it didn't flake and wasn't terribly sticky. They only used this at the roots, and not down the entire loc.
Natural since '97 - 8 yrs loc'ed, free-form since then
