We highly recommend that the only products to be used is a clarifying shampoo.  That's it.  If you want more variety you can use apple cider vinegar  as a hair rinse/conditioner and rosewater for scent and moisture.  If you use conditioners, creams, oils, or gels you will experience product build up and this can interfere with the formation and condition of your locs.
