I’m so excited! Not only is it Friday, but I think I’ve stumbled upon a HG status sealing regimen.
This is my third experience using Oyin’s Juices and Berries (the same make-up as Frank Juice, with a summery sweet smell), and NaturallyMe’s Body Butter to seal the ends of my wet twists. My Twist-n-Curl sets are in heaven, and lasting for upwards of 4 days without drying out. This is major!! My ends are glorious, even the fragile color treated ones…like silk rope.
Oyin’s Juices and Berries- Liquid Leave-in Conditioner
Ingredients: Purified water infused with horsetail, lavender, nettle, roses, and chamomile; organic flaxseeds; aloe vera juice; vegetable glycerine; essences of lavender, sweet orange, ylang ylang, and rosemary; grapefruit seed extract; citric acid; fragrance; and love
How I use it: Frank Juice/Greg Juice/Juices and Berries (all the same, just different fragrance) is surprisingly moisturizing. I’m not a fan of liquid leave-in’s but this is a great supplement to my routine. During the detangling process, I spritz J&B on already conditioner saturated hair, to help work out the kinks. After rinsing out the co-wash conditioner, and prior to applying DevaOne as a leave-in, I spritz a little J&B throughout for added moisture. Finally, after twisting my hair, I thoroughly saturate the ends with Juices and Berries and finally seal that in with Naturally Me Body Butter. Roll and Set!
Tips: Don’t use too much- you will quickly find yourself in a sticky situation. You can also use this to refresh 2nd and 3rd day hair. Instead of spraying onto my twist-n-curl, which would undoubtedly lead to frizz, I spray it on my fingers, and slick a little on the ends of each individual curl. Works great!
Naturally Me Body Butter
Obviously, the title of this product suggests that it is intended for your body. But one glance at the ingredients, and you quickly come to the realization that this would be the perfect hair butter as well. I’ve received tons of free hair prodcuts from smaller companies, but this is one of the few that I actually decided to purchase. The consistency is perfect- whipped and smooth, like Shea Butter sent down from the heavens! It melts into my hair, revealing soft, moisturized curls for days on end. The price is DEFINITELY right. You can cop an 8oz jar for only $15.99! Dare I say- I think I like it more than Jane Carter’s Nourish and Shine…it’s much less greasy and easier to work with, plus its 5 dollars cheaper. A little definitely goes a long way.
Ingredients: Unrefined Shea Butter, Palm Kernel Oil and Essential Oil.
How I use it: After spritzing the hair with J&B, I seal each end with Body Butter. I also use it on 2nd, 3rd and 4th day hair for shine, and to smooth away the frizzies. It offers a light hold, just like 100% shea.
