christina patrice coily hairAdmittedly, us natural gals can be product snobs from time to time (or all the time”>. We turn our noses up at products because on the surface, it looks like they’re irrelevant to our natural hair needs — or because we want to distance ourselves from anything remotely related to perms, flat irons, and weaves.

I’m here to say: Keep an open mind. Sometimes, the products you end up loving the most don’t say natural, curly, kinky, coily, or wavy on the label. Case and point: Long Locks Hair Care. I was sent a wonderful haul of products from Long Locks to review: including Peppermint Candy Shampoo and Conditioner, Mystique Frizz Control Cream, and… a GLAM IRON! What’s a Glam Iron, you ask? Only the cutest flat iron…ever. In life. Although I only straighten my hair 3 or 4 times a year, it’s nice to know that next time I crave sleek tresses, I’ll have the chicest iron on the block. Before I get too carried away about the glam iron, let me get to the actual review.
