Twisted Twist Out! (Revisited)

This is my 4 day experienment with a twistout using various products.

Day 1 - Used Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Cream
(I didn't really like this cream but it did the job)
*Lesson Learned: My hair likes butters!*

Day 2 - Used Kinky Curly Knot Today and Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Hold/Shine Mist to Retwist.  (Retwisted with fair results but the shea moisture hold/mist seemed to dry out my hair) *Lesson Learned: I didn't need to add more product after day 1*:) - I should have just retwisted my hair!
Day 3 - Purchased Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter to Retwist Hair
(Retwisted with textures product and water - EXCELLENT RESULTS)
Day 4 - Retwisted using NO PRODUCT! (OMG AWESOME) and added a little bit of organic coconut oil for moisture and shine!

Overall, I really enjoyed this twistout. I learned that with my hair a butter goes a long way!  Also I only need to reapply product when my twist out truly gets out of control!

Kinky Curly Curling Custard - Test Run!

Ok! So the first time I purchased Kinky Curly Curling Custard was about 3 years ago. It was an EPIC FAIL! My hair was extremely greasy, heavy, and crunchy looking. I purchased the product a few years later and experienced yet another EPIC FAIL - I gave the product away both times. However, after much discussion with my homegirl, YT (Youtube) exploration, and review, I decided to try it one last time. And guess what, it WORKED! It really worked and I like the results!

Kinky Curly Curling Custard $16.99 @ Target
This product takes your existing curl pattern and locks it into place so if you don't really have a curl pattern then this may not work for you . It's an organic gel and when used correctly can really enhance your existing curl pattern.

Application Steps/Tips:
  1. Wash/Conditioner Hair
  2. Apply leave in conditioner (today I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie)
  3. Seal with Oil (today I used refined coconut oil/applied to ends of hair)
  4. Seal with Creme (today I used Kinky Curly Knot Today Conditioner)
  5. Section hair using clips based on the length/density of hair
  6. Apply small amount of product to palm and rub hands together (apply dime to quarter size amount depending on hair density)
  7. Smooth product into hair using praying hands method (place hands together as if you are praying)
  8. Let hair air dry or sit under hooded dryer ( I prefer to sit under a hooded dryer)
  9. Fluff with favorite oil and GO! That's It!

ILLamasqua Nail Polish Review

Illamasqua Nail Polish/Varnishes are HOT! This $14.00 polish is my favorite! The color pay off is awesome and will turn heads. Expect this polish to last close to two weeks with mininum care. Apply one to two coats depending on how bright you want the color. Polish works well with OPI top coat as well as other top coat finishes!
