It is highly suggested that you use the products recommended by MDW Natural Hair Services to ensure proper hair care maintenance and to protect your investment.


B.O.R.N. (Beautiful. Original. Regal. Natural.) organic hair care products are lightweight and ensures the health of your hair while preventing slippage, scalp/hair dryness, and other issues associated with locing your hair.


The following are products that are beneficial in your loc journey. They can be purchased at bornhairproducts.com:

  • 🧴BORN Clarifying Shampoo- shampoo cleanses hair to remove excess, oil, sweat, direct, and other impurities while leaving hair smelling lemony fresh, soft, and lightweight.
  • 🧴BORN Hair Reviver-hair reviver refreshes and hydrates dry, dull locs and scalp. Spray on hair as needed for a beautiful shine and moisturized locs without causing slippage.
  • 🧴BORN Hair Oil-oil nourishes your scalp and hair with a lightweight formula. Hair and skin smells amazing and treatment lasts for days.
  • 🧴BORN Leave in Conditioning Styler-leave in conditioning treatment is to be used only when your locs are completely loc'd and mature. Conditioner hydrates and moisturizes locs as well as set twist outs, braid outs, rods, and other hair styles used on locs.
  • Proper care will lead to healthy, strong, beautiful locs. There is a chance some of your locs will slip out completely. Understand that this is a risk. Some of our clients deal with slippage around the back/nape areas and the front parameters. We do our best to prevent this but for some people, those areas are just more prone to slippage especially when those areas are moist or after your first wash.
  • Please do your due diligence by educating yourself on locs in general and the entire loc process. Make all you concerns known before you book an appointment. Failure to follow directions as it relates to proper maintenance schedule and proper hair care can lead to slippage and damage. 
  • If you have any heat damage (hair permanently straightened due to heat styling) make sure it gets trimmed off before you come to us. If you need us to provide that service, it is an additional $50 service fee. Proper care will lead to healthy, strong, beautiful locs.
