It Wasn’t a Fluke…

By January 27th, 202128 Comments

Happy Thursday Chicas!

Today marks the beginning of my weekend, and I couldn’t be happier!!!! Last night, I conditioned and re-set my hair. I used Lustrasilk Shea+ Oyin Juices and Berries + Naturally Me Body Butter…and lo and behold, it wasn’t a fluke…this is truly a winning team!

My hair is moisturized, defined, and about as frizz free as it’ll ever be. If you’re sleeping on this one or trying to fight that inner PJ, get up, and take your butt to Sally’s! I’m impressed, and I’m LOVING the price. I mean seriously, when are you ever going to buy a 16oz jar of anything for 2.89…seriously?!

But we must not forget the greatness that is Oyin—Juices and Berries is putting in some work! For some reason, (and it may be the aloe) the J&B is acting like a light (and delicious smelling) setting lotion. My curls are bouncier and last a bit longer than before. Whatever it is, I’m loving it, and Oyin will now be a mainstay in my routine. I’m planning to switch between the DevaCare One Condition and Lustrasilk periodically…I finally have 2 staple conditioner stylers!!!! Now, my prayer is that I’ll have just as much luck with this new routine in the summer…which is quickly approaching πŸ™‚

    I love this condish and normally use either this one or my most recent one with olive oil. Love, love it, BUT I get flakes galore with it as a leave in. Juices and Berries to combat this? We shall see; it sounds promising. Thanks for the review!!

    Gorgeous..I can’t wait until my TnC looks like yours πŸ™‚

    Ditto on the above post. It was a fail for me on all three products — the lustrasilk, the Oyin juices and berries, and the BB volanic mask.

    I’m also not sure if I rinsed out all the way, because after the bentonite, my ends were COMPLETELY dried out, even after a deep condition.

    The lustrasilk left my hair gooey, and the Juices and Berries left it sticky and slow to dry. My hair looked a hot mess! Lol. Thank goodness for buns.

    Sigh. Back to the drawing board.

    I most have applied to much lustrasilk, because after my hair dried it was looking dull and dry, as if I been playing in haiti sand, had no shine, no life, but there was no frizz, so I washed it out and this time just used oyin shine & define,J&b and my hair was saying thank you, thank you, or could I have done BB bentonite/marshmallow root wrong and not washed it out enough. hummm

    Girl, your hair is gorgeous! I will definitely have to try that combo.

    CN, I’m routine jacking you once again! Just got back from the beauty supply with my Lustrasilk cholesterol and shea.

    Got the package with my Juices and Berries (which is hilarious cause now I can really quote Coming to America when someone asks me what I use in my hair — it’s not ultraperm, it’s juices and berries! Ha!).

    Also ordered BB volcanic mask — yikes, they don’t give you much. Think I’m going to make up my own bentonite/marshmallow root combo from now on.

    Anyway, I’m about to throw all this stuff on my head — will send the results!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks lala, cassie and andrea!

    @Cassie, I’d love to hear about your bentonite results!!!

    @Andrea, I do a wet set, I affectionately refer to as the Twist-n-Curl. Very easy to do, and it lasts me 4 days. If you look under CurlyNikki Vids, it should the one at the bottom.

    later gators,

    i am a newer reader to your blog and i love it! i think your hair is absolutely beautiful. what do you do to get the spirals/ringlet curls that are on the ends of your hair? i think that is really cute and i haven’t seen that look on anyone else before.


  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks ladies!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

    Curly Jae, please come back in here and let us know how your hair turned out!

    I purchase my Oyin Juices from

    I only use heat if I’m in a bind…I air dry 99.9% of the time. Lately I’ve been experimenting with my denman brush prior to twisting. After I do this a few more times, I’ll report back πŸ™‚

  • A. says:

    ok. NOW you've got my ATTENTION!!!!

    I mean – I was paying attention before – but if I can have this look – I'm ALL for it.

    Now I have to scroll through posts to see where to get Juices and Berries (I laugh every time I read it) and how to do these flat twists.

    I know I've seen those posts somewhere.

    <—— Goes in search of posts

  • Jamie says:

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Lu, email me at I lost your email address.

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Thanks Ladies!

    How awesome, Luanna and Leandra on one post! I miss you guys πŸ™‚

    Luanna, it's henna..not hemp! lol, and the loosening is subtle…its the smoothing of the frizz and shrinkage reduction that makes all the difference in the world! My hair pattern is still wavy s's…look at my my roots. But, the henna has weighed my strands down, making them more substantial (which prevents splits, and breakage), and makes it a bit easier to manipulate.

    Leandra, you have to try the Oyin Juice too. I know how you're into 'natural' products…this one is definitely worth looking into. did you try that Whole Foods conditioner we talked about?

    Holly, that magical juice is still out of stock πŸ™ I ordered some Greg Juice from curlmart…it should be here soon. I'm no where near out of my J&B, but I NEVER want to run out, lol.

  • pippy says:

    i am convinced you have the most beautiful head of hair i have ever seen c:

  • Unknown says:

    alicia, you’re hair is so PHENOMENAL!! it’s so gorgeous girl! i LOVE it!! i need to do whatever you did to loosen your curls up. you largely attribute that to hemp, yes?

  • Holly says:

    Oh wow! Your hair is truly amazing! I will print this pic for my teenage daughter as an inspiration while she transitions. I am going to RUN this weekend and buy me some Lustrasilk. Now if only I can find that magical Oyin juices and berries in stock…sigh…

  • Tina Beanie says:

    We have exactly the same hair texture and I am definitely trying out this combo as frizz has been and issue with my transitioning hair. Questions, do you comb through your hair before you add the Lustrasilk and twist? Also, what do you set your bottom half on? It’s so smooth and frizz-free!
