My New Sealing Routine

By January 27th, 202111 Comments

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
My New Sealing Routine
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

My New Sealing RoutineObviously, 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.

Purchase Oyin’s Frank Juice from HERE. Much quicker shipping than buying it directly from Oyin.

Purchase Naturally Me Body Butter from HERE.

    Hi Nikki,

    I'm a new transitioner and love your blog & fabulous hair! I haven't been relaxed for 9 months. As a newbie, it is hard to understand the process of how you veterans actually do the styles step by step! What kinds of twists are you doing & what kind of rollers do u use?

  • Unknown says:

    Hey Nikki, what kinds of rollers do you use on the ends? I know you said 3/4 for the size but what do they look like?

  • Natakue says:

    hahaha @opposite of sexy! i know exactly what you mean though, thanks. =)

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks ladies!!!!

    @Natakue, I sleep in a big, opposite of sex, tan bonnet I purchased at Sally's. It's not from the 'ethnic' section of the store…its from the other side. There's an old white lady on the front…it has lace trim, and is kinda stiff. Truly a ridiculous sight, but it works! I just pull my hair under it (like I'm putting my hair in a low pony), tuck the stray curls in, and go to sleep. Hth!

    @Lifeinthesunshine, thank you! I try to keep the site varied, so you guys don't get bored with the same old head, lol. But it makes me feel good to know that you enjoy seeing my progress!

    @SBB, I know, right?! I went back out there to buy a second bottle of J&B and had to settle for Greg Juice! Even the Frank Juice was gone 🙁 I'd love to hear how you like it…our hair is fam! Its a great detangler and surprisingly packs a serious moisture punch. I've never heard of Komaza H20, or the Curl Junkie one. If you're interested, please send me a review and I'll post it on the site!

    Afrohippie, you're one of the culprits! Curlmart is fresh out! I hope you like it! If not, send it to me 😀

    I think you started a run on the J&B at Curlmart. They're out of stock 😀 I just ordere Curl Junkie Curl Fuel Spray and currently have a Komaza H2O plus trial size. I'm going to try using one of those the way you are using J&B. hair is looking great – very smooth!

    You’ve mentioned the Oyin’s Leave ins a few times and since you so graciously provided that promo code, I had to go ahead and place my order. Thank you! And your hair looks absolutely gorgeous!
