I planned on wearing my hair out a couple days or more this week and then going into yarn twists for the month of May. But anyways, the twists were set using Camille Rose's Almond Jai Twisting Butter. I no longer use any product without using my leave in first so if this seems like an unfair review because I had garnier sleek and shine leave in my hair then by all means, skip what I'm about to say.
But I think I really like this product! The difference that I noticed in my hair was that it felt a lot softer...almost, ALMOST like silk or suede or something as opposed to when I JUST have my leave in on my hair and it feels soft but a little more firmer. My twists are alot shinier and I feel like when I take my twists down in the morning it's gonna have really good definition....boy I hope I'm right! lol It goes on really creamy and spreads really easily you seriously do not need much of this product to get it to spread along the length of your hair. But since I can get a little heavy handed at times, I wasn't really paying attention to how much went on but more that my hair was evenly coated. Since my hair was wet, it did foam up but in the end it dried clear even with the garnier sleek and shine foaming as well.
As far as the smell...I'm not too keen on it in my hair. It has a very subtle vanilla-based scent in the jar but in my hair it smells like....medicated sweets or something it's like a really weird scent. But you can barely smell it unless you shake your head around alot. lol But I'm very excited to see the results of it in the morning. ♥
I must also say my ends looked great! They're not due for a trim yet, though I do plan on doing a little dusting somewhere around June, possibly around the end of it. But they still coil up with no problem, no random snarling and tangling at the ends, shedded hairs still just glide right on out, yup. Nelly is still doing tremendously in that aspect.
You'll just have to stay tuned!
