This specially formulated gel contains no alcohol or beeswax and will not cause flaking. It allows you to style and/or touch up your hair and is ideal for those with locks and twists. Many consumers use beeswax or gels with alcohol and sodium hydroxide (lye) to style their hair, but these products cause problems such as dry brittle hair, build-up, flaking, and in some cases, hair thinning or hair loss. In the past the only way to get the right balance of hold and moistures was to mix different oils, gels and waxes together. The use of Lock and Twist Gel™ results in twists with a fabulous shine and hold. ORS has developed a product that gives natural hold, while adding moisture and shine to the hair. ORS Lock and Twist Gel is different from other gels on the market because it does not contain alcohol or sodium hydroxide (lye).
