Twist and Curl, Moving, and Family Time!

Hey Naturalistas! Whew … Moving is a joy and a Pain at the same darn time right? Well I am almost setteled in So EXCITED! Well…The past weekend was sooo super busy!!! I moved, and It was also my brother’s 40th birthday!! So I had to do my hair for the festivites!!! I decided to go with a chunky twist and curl.

I washed my hair Thursday Night and did about maybe 10 chunky twists with rods to set the ends. I used Cream of Nature with argan oil shampoo, for the deep conditioner I tried a sample of Palmers Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack, and Beautiful Textures leave in.. Deets On the Palmers:
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack is a once a week intensive conditioning treatment formulated with Pure Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E to restore and replenish hair that is in need of more than just your daily conditioner. ( I will do a review on my YT channel).

And… DRUMROLL PLEASE to style I used my beloved, never lets me down… Qhemet Aethiopika Hydrate and Twist butter!!! MAN THIS STUFF IS THE TRUTH! My hair is still moisturized. I try to venture off and use different products but this one always gets my heart and I will always use this as my go to. I LOVE IT SOOOO MUCH LOL! Have y’all tried this stuff? MAN!!

Review: Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner

SBS-370925Happy Thursday Naturalistas!! Those of you who watch SCANDAL are YOU READY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any hoo on to the reason for this post. So before I put in my Marley twists (which I will be taking down today after 3 weeks :)) I received a sample of a deep conditioner that I have been wanting to try. Beautiful Textures Rapid Repaid Deep Conditioner. Here are the product details:

From the beautiful textures website:

Enriched with Aloe Vera, Coconut, Olive, Soy, Argan Oil, Shea and Mango Butter

Ingredients: Aqua, Glycine Soja Oil/Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Argania Spinosa Nut Oil/Argan Oil, Cocos Nucifera Oil/Coconut Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil/Olive Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit/Shea Butter, Mangifera Indica Seed Butter/Mango Butter, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract/Rosemary Extract, Dimethicone, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract/Aloe Vera, Phenyl Trimethicone, Panax Ginseng Root Extract/Ginseng Extract, Polyquaternium 37, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/ Dicaprate, Steareth 2, Steareth 20, Lanolin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Polysorbate 20, DMDM Hydantoin, CI 15985/Yellow 6, Parfum/Fragrance, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Coumarin, d-Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Lyral, Methyl Ionone Gamma.  

Details:
Achieve amazing manageability and styling versatility for Curly, Wavy, Kinky-Coily or Frizzy hair. Get soft defined curls, bodacious bouncy spirals, and smooth silky tresses with this Intensive Moisture-Rich Formula for mixed textured hair.
Benefits:
•Restore Hair’s Natural Moisture Balance
•Control Damage from Transitioning, Heat, and Color Treated Hair
•Restore Elasticity to Prevent Breakage
Dryness and breakage prevent healthy looking hair growth. To help ensure your hair has a fighting chance against daily styling stresses use Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner to help strengthen, rebuild, protect and hydrate.

Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner allows you to embrace more versatile styling options, while protecting your hair from the inside out. To achieve softer, more defined curls, healthier looking elongated coils and simply silky smooth hydrated hair use this feather lite deep penetrating conditioner.

Directions for Best Results
Help Control Damage and Add Brilliant Shine Every Day!

Directions:
Saturate hair from roots to ends. Finger comb or use a wide tooth comb to ensure complete coverage. For thicker tresses use a detangling brush to ensure complete coverage. For deeper penetration cover hair with plastic cap and sit under dryer for 15 minutes. Rinse completely and style as desired. For tresses that are extremely damaged, over processed, or breaking hair, follow the steps above for 25 minutes. Can also be used as a leave-in conditioner.

Styling Suggestions:

For tighter natural curl pattern allow hair to air dry. For looser curl pattern and added volume, blow dry while finger combing and twisting curls. For straighter styles use a diffuser and/or blow-dry using a brush or wide-tooth comb.

Custom Blends: Mix & Match Products to create your own personal blend perfect for you!

•For Your Unique Curl Repairing Experience!
For enhanced heat protection and shine add a few drops of Curly to Straight Silkener to the Deep Conditioner in the palm of your hand and follow directions.

For enhanced detangling add a small amount of Tangle Taming Leave-in Conditioner to Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner in the palm of your hand. Apply to hair and follow directions.
Specifications:
Available in 15oz jar

My Review: So I found another Deep conditioner that I LOVE!!!! I will be going to sally’s to purchace a full size product!!! My hair felt so great after rinsing this out. Im sorry guys Im so bad at taking before and after PICS!!! SMH I have gots to do better!!! My hair did not feel dry at all, there was lots of moisture 🙂 It also detangled my hair very well!! I was able to comb through very easily. The only thing I dont like is that it comes in a jar. But I will make it work. So I give this product 4 stars!!! It can be purchaced at Sallys, and WalMart 🙂
