My Review:



I decided to try something new and do a flat twist out. To wash I used creme of nature with argan oil shampoo, tresemme naturals as my conditioner, and Design Essentials Natural Daily Moisturizing lotion as my leave in. Then I styled with the Defining Creme Gel.

Here were my Results


20130309_16475820130309_190356I liked my results!! This stuff smells amazing BTW, I had to try to keep from eating it LOL! My stylist had actually used this on my hair when I was transitioning so I somewhat knew how it would work for my hair. I believe this gave me great definition! I have tried their twist and set setting lotion, which also gives great definition. My hair almost never dries, but it did with this product!! I think this product is great for transitioners who are doing twist and curls! It will give your hair amazing definition. I also think a little goes a long way so you don’t have to use a lot 🙂


Have you tried any products from the Natural Design Essentials line?
