Apparently, there is a new trend in the natural community of using old-fashioned hair grease for twist-outs. I’m curious about this because for many naturals it comes down to ingredients in the product. Most classic hair grease products are known to have mineral oil and other unnatural ingredients in them. This leads me to ask, has hair grease been revamped with better ingredients?
If you’re using hair grease for twist-outs, does the hair feel greasy to the touch? Does the twist-out last longer? I’m not passing any judgment on anyone who uses old-fashioned hair grease, I’m just curious about the come back that hair grease is making. I remember over a month ago, one of the main complaints from many naturals about Tyra’s Type F Youtube channel (to my understanding the videos for natural hair are being redone for the channel), was that one of the women was promoting hair grease and pomade for use on an Afro. What has changed between then and now?
I’m not sure if I could ever go back to hair grease because I would imagine that it would just weigh my fine to medium hair strands down. As far as the ingredients are concerned, I prefer natural oils over mineral oil and petrolatum.
Like I said, this is all out of curiosity. If you’re using hair grease on your natural hair, let me know what you like about it, and why you went back to using it?
