Noggin Oil Product Review

If you’ve ever had an extremely itchy scalp or felt the need to shampoo your locs but didn’t have enough time to do so, this is a product line created with you in mind!

In this product review I am going to be taking an in-depth look at a few items in the Noggin Oil product line, including the “Chill” Soothing Oil and the “Wash” Dry Shampoo. The “Chill” Soothing Oil provides instant relief for itchy scalp and the “Wash” Dry Shampoo cleanses and removes buildup at the roots within minutes!

Full disclosure, I did purchase these products with my own money because I love the work of the one of the co-founders, Karen of @Modlocks; which means the opinions expressed are my own. But as an added bonus for you, and because she’s super dope, I reached out to her and she graciously created an affiliate coupon code for you, which I’ll share at the end of the post.

Removing Buildup From The Roots

I can personally attest to the “Wash” Dry Shampoo working exceptionally well for removing buildup and dandruff from the roots of my locs. So, I was definitely not surprised when the “Wash” Dry Shampoo was rated as one of the best “showerless cleansers”. On the Noggin Oil website it states that this product has been “formulated to lift away impurities, sebum, dirt, perspiration and pollution from the scalp”.

How I Used The “Wash” Dry Shampoo

Typically I shampoo my locs weekly but occasionally being a mompreneur(mom & entrepreneur) gets the best of me and it’ll be 2-3 weeks since my last shampoo. During those times, like most people waiting multiple weeks between a shampoo, my scalp has flakes and the repeated use of product is visible at my roots. I found that spraying my roots with the “Wash” Dry Shampoo would instantly remove the dandruff and flakes from my roots. No rubbing required! This “showerless cleanser” would even allow me to go another week without shampooing my hair if I needed that extra time.

Additional Uses Of the “Wash” Dry Shampoo

Pre-Cleanse. Before shampooing the hair, spray the roots with the “Wash” Dry Shampoo and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes. This will help to remove any buildup and impurities from the roots.

After Workout Cleanse. Some of us sweat excessively in our scalp while working out and this product helps to remove the excess sweat and odor from the roots.

Starter Locs Cleanse. When you first start locs it can be nerve-wrecking to do the first shampoo, but you know you need to clean your scalp. As an temporary alternative, you can use the “Wash” Dry Shampoo to cleanse your scalp until you’re ready to do a full shampoo.

How to Soothe Itchy Scalp With Locs

The other product that I tried was the “Chill” Soothing Oil which is amazing for soothing itchy scalp! Aside from the fact that the soothing oil really works what I loved most is the packaging! The “Chill” Soothing Oil comes in a roll-on application bottle which delivers the right about of oil to relieve the itching without making the scalp too oily.

Blog Comments

Hello Jocelyn and thank you for all of your helpful blogs. I have just started my loc journey and I have wavy texture hair. I do get the dandruff buildup with not being able to wash my hair as I normally would. Where can I purchase the products mentioned above.

I would like to try the noggin dry wash and “Chill” soothing oil.
Because I don’t get to always wash my hair because I take care of my sick brother-in-law during the day and granddaughters on the weekends

I’d like to know more about the steam treatment you spoke about in one of your videos. And I need advice for itchy flaky scalp.

Have you ever considered doing a review of Dollylocks produces?

I’ve thought about it before.

First time hearing about these products. Haven’t tried them. I do a prepoo with my shampoo mixed with peppermint oil applied to hair roots then cover with plastic bag for 1+ hours. I don’t have any problems with dandruff, flakes, scabs, etc.

I love their products!!!! I also bought them first and now retail them at my salon. They are amazing!!! I require all of my starter clients to take the Wash home!!! Game changer!!!
