Treasured Locks Review & Giveaway

Our Treasured Locks H2G Awaken Emu Oil Shampoo is a breakthrough product when it comes to hair and scalp health. Emu oil has been shown to improve circulation and reduce inflammation. These improvements to the scalp allow the scalp to grow stronger hair faster. Now get the benefits of Emu Oil in our salon grade Emu Oil Shampoo and Emu Oil Conditioner. For best results, use both products.

Our Emu Oil Shampoo helps hydrate hair and improve elasticity. These are two things that are vital to Black hair care. Black hair tends to be dry and brittle. That makes it fragile. Anything we can do to improve the moisture balance and to improve the elasticity means less breakage. Our Emu Oil Shampoo is especially beneficial if you perm your hair or use heat on your hair. Emu oil contains an array of Essential Fatty Acids that do wonders for your hair and scalp. That is why we include it in our Treasured Locks H2G Hair Growth Serum.
  • Some of the benefits you can expect include:
  • Faster growing hair- improves the health of sluggish hair follicles
  • Shinier hair
  • Stronger hair
  • Reduced bacterial level on scalp (less itching and flaking)
  • Less shedding
  • Less scalp sensitivity
  • Thicker hair

Our Experience:
Scent: This smells like fresh apples to me! Great Scent.
Jamilah wet her hair and applied the Emu Oil Shampoo, She lathered it up, massaged her scalp with the balls on her fingers and rinsed. Jamilah tends to get dry scalp and sometimes flaking on her scalp. I noticed after using this shampoo along with the African Argan Elixir her scalp has had no dryness or flaking, even in this cold weather,
This shampoo does contain SLS so those of you who do not use SLS should be aware of that.
This was the response from Treasured Locks when asked about the SLS content of this product:
Treasured Locks Staff: This particular shampoo is not sulfate free. It uses gentle, salon grade sulfates that are necessary to give it the properties it is known for. We have considered reformulating it to be sulfate free to meet the demand for sulfate free shampoos. But, considering it is our best performing shampoo, we simply don't' want to mess with a good thing. We do offer a sulfate free shampoo, our Treasured Locks Nothin' But Nature Shampoo.
I really like this shampoo and I don't think I would let the SLS content keep me from using it. I found it to be a very moisturizing shampoo and easy on the scalp and I am hoping that it will help Jamilah in her quest for growth and hair health.
Treasured Locks set out to produce the best Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner available and we did it! Our highly versatile Shea Butter Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner can be used as a conditioner after shampooing, a daily hair moisturizer and/or to detangle hair. Chock full of ingredients your hair is thirsting for, our leave-in conditioner will condition and soften your hair in one quick and easy step. Treasured Locks Nourishing Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner is the best conditioner available for African-American hair. But, it also suitable for other curly hair types and/or hair that needs extra moisture. Formulated using on the finest ingredients available (just like those big fancy salons use), our conditioner actually delivers on what a conditioner is supposed to do.
Our Experience:
Scent: Nice, Clean, maybe a bit fruity, I can't quite put my finger on it but I like it!
I love leave-in conditioners and this one is no exception. I like that it's not too thick so it's buildable, it moisturizes and helps de-tangle without adding weight to the hair. The Treasured Locks Shea Butter Nourishing Leave In Conditioner made Jamilah's hair feel soft and it was so easy to detangle with my fingers or a wide tooth comb.
Treasured Locks is happy to present our African Argan Oil Elixir.  Argan oil is naturally beneficial for both hair and skin, which is why it has been used by the Berber women for centuries.  Argan oil naturally contains essential fatty acids that hair and skin drink up as nourishment making them more elastic and healthier.

  • Argan Oil
    • Smooths hair and gently relaxes curliness
    • Argan oil penetrates into the hair pores or shafts and enhances the elasticity of hair which prevents breakage
    • The omega 3 and omega 9 essential fatty acids nourish the hair and scalp providing faster growth
    • Helps control hard to manage hair
    • Repairs damage from chemical treatments and excessive heat from straightening combs, blow dryers and flat irons
  • Jojoba Oil
    • Jojoba oil is very similar to the natural sebum produced by the glands in your scalp.  African-America hair is often dry because this sebum cannot easily work its way up the kinky hair shaft.
    • Acts as a 100% natural hair conditioner
    • Prevents splits, tangles and hair breakage
  • Sweet Almond Oil
    • Sweet Almond oil has been used since the time of the ancient Romans. 
    • Light pale yellow oil
    • Reduces flakiness, dryness, scaling and itch of scalp
  • Castor Oil
    • Naturally produced vegetable oil
    • Acts as an emollient (softens hair and skin)
    • By sealing the cuticle it makes hair smoother and helps the hair hold moisture
    • Natural humectant (attracts moisture to the hair)
  • Lavender and Vanilla EO Blend
    • Warm soothing fragrance
    • Refreshes natural hair

My Experience:
I used a rat-tail comb to separate Jamilah's hair about every inch or so and I applied a fine line of the African Argan Oil. The tip on this bottle is excellent for squeezing out a fine line of oil!
(Jamilah was doing some last minute Christmas shopping online while I oiled her scalp)
This is a really good oil, it feels good and smells nice too. Definitely a hair food! This is packed with great oils with so many great benefits (listed above).
Maximum manageability and shine with a deep treatment and strengthening finisher. Treasured Locks Conditioning Balm is a botanically rich, leave-in conditioning and styling balm that straightens and controls curly frizzy hair while, giving incredible shine and manageability. A fusion of silicones and botanical stylers and conditioners deep treat hair and replenish over time.
Shampoo hair and towel dry. Place a quarter size amount of Conditioning Balm into the palm of your hand and work into hair from front to back. Heat hair to activate (using a heat cap or hair dryer). Hair becomes softer and more manageable with continued use.
Our Experience:
Scent: The scent was okay, not my favorite but not bad either.
After Shampooing I towel dried Jamilah's hair a little bit. I don't rub it back and forth, I gently press and blot the excess water. I applied the Conditioning balm, detangled and placed a cap on her hair before heating the hair with a hair dyer (with diffuser). When her hair was near dry I removed the cap and diffused her hair a little more. The first thing I noticed was that her curls really popped with this product! Her hair had a nice shine to it and it kind of felt like she has used a little gel to style her hair.
While nothing can give you instantly longer hair, there are ways to maximize the amount of hair you have. By keeping your scalp healthy, maintaining the proper moisture and oil balance on your hair and getting the proper nutrition, you can make sure your hair grows at its maximum rate and does not break off. This is the secret to long and strong hair. Treasured Locks H2G Hair Growth Serum is a blend of all natural ingredients scientifically proven to promote longer, healthier hair. Made from the highest quality Emu oil (AEA food grade certified), naturally extracted carrier oils and a proprietary blend of the finest quality, steam-distilled essential oils, our serum is unlike any other on the market. Emu oil and essential oils have been independently tested and shown to reduce inflammation, increase circulation and improve the growth phase of the hair life cycle. Key Ingredients:
  • Shea Butter Oil & Jojoba Oil- Natural oils that provide moisture to the skin, improve skin tone and carry the other ingredients beneath the surface of the skin.
  • Emu Oil- improves skin tone, reduces inflammation, known to stimulate hair growth. Accelerates cell regeneration-including the growth phase of the hair cycle. We use only AEA Certified food grade Emu oil.
  • Treasured Locks H2G Essential Oil Complex- a proprietary blend of essential oils shown to stimulate hair growth. Our essential oils are the finest available imported from the best climates and steam-distilled.
How it works On a normal head of hair there are roughly 100,000 strands of hair, each going through its own cycle. Hair grows (anagen phase- lasts about 4 years), hair rests (catagen phase- hair follicle regresses) and hair sheds (telogen) phase. Normally about 90% of hair follicles are in the anagen phase. But, the average person sheds about 50-60 hairs per day. Normal hair grows at a rate of about 1/2 inch per month. But, this varies by person (genetics). Hair growth is also effected by nutrition, stress levels, moisture, heat and oil balance. Proper treatment of the hair and scalp along with proper nutrition will allow you to reach your maximum potential hair growth. Studies have shown that Emu oil penetrates through several layers of the dermis, nourishing the skin and accelerating growth. Emu oil has been shown to help promote the growth cycle of hair follicles and greatly reduces inflammation, which many doctors believe is a factor in hair loss. Emu oil is similar in fatty acid composition to human skin. This makes it non-comedogenic (non pore clogging) and allows it to easily penetrate the skin. A double-blind study has been shown that a blend of essential oils can provide significantly faster and better hair growth than just carrier oils alone. The growth was seen with no side effects that are possible with drugs such as steroids which are commonly used to treat alopecia (hair loss). Our serum is also beneficial for mild skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Please keep in mind that certain medical conditions will cause hair loss and that we make no medical claims concerning any of our products.

Shea Butter Oil, Emu Oil, Golden Jojoba Oil, Treasured Locks H2G Growth Complex, Vitamin E

Our Experience:
Scent: Nice herbal, natural scent
Here I am adding (a little too much) H2G Growth Serum to Jamilah's struggling edges while she plays on the laptop again. I added the serum to her whole scalp and concentrated on the edges. It says to add a few drops and I put a little more on her edges, as you can see. I am excited to see if all these great ingredients help her hair to grow.... I will continue to use this growth serum and keep you all updated!!
