The light formulation of WASH smells fantastic and may be sprayed periodically to freshen dreads. Over spraying is not recommended.

Can I use Noggin Oil WASH on other parts of my body?

While WASH is not designed to use on the body, we have heard many positive reports of how great it is to use under the arms and other bits. Use at your own risk.


Chill

What is Noggin Oil CHILL?

CHILL is a topical cooling oil for people with low pain tolerance during and after hair services that require excessive pulling (ie: dreadlocking, braiding, twisting).

Why is Noggin Oil CHILL so intense?

The intensity is what helps to combat the discomfort caused by hair services that require pulling.

Why does the bottle say for professional use only?

CHILL has an intense cooling affect. We caution people to use it carefully and mindfully avoiding the eyes, nose and mouth. Keep out of reach of children.

I got Noggin Oil CHILL in my eyes, what do I do?

Keep your eyes closed. DO NOT USE WATER. Water intensifies the sensation. Instead find any regular oil such as olive, coconut, sesame, hemp, sunflower etc. Apply liberally on the affected area. Regular oil will dilute CHILL and minimize the sensation. There are no known lasting side effects. If pain continues or worsens, seek medical attention.

What is Noggin Oil CHILL suppose to feel like?

The sensation is cool to cold. Some people feel a mild tingling. We recommend testing a small spot at the nape of your neck before using the product all over.

How long before I feel Noggin Oil CHILL working?

Some people feel it almost immediately but it usually takes about 3 minutes to build intensity.

How long does the cooling sensation last?

Once applied, about 30 - 45 minutes.

When should I use Noggin Oil CHILL?

The best times are while you get your hair worked on and that night before bed. It’s also great to use once in a while to alleviate tenderness or itchiness.

Is CHILL safe for Children?

Because this product contains pure essential oils, it is not recommended for children under the age of 6.

I have a high pain tolerance on my head, do I need Noggin Oil CHILL?
