LegallyNatural, a CurlyNikki subscriber, submitted a short review and pictures of her experience with Lustrasilk Shea Butter and Mango conditioner. Check it out:
“I have attached some pics of my twist and curl with the Lustrasilk shea butter and mango conditioner. I co-washed with Pantene relaxed and natural conditioner, used the Lustrasilk shea butter and mango conditioner as a leave-in, and sealed my ends with shea butter. The results are nice. It just takes my hair so darn long to dry, so some of the ends were still damp and are now frizzy (especially in the back). Other than that, I LOVE IT!”
1st: I saw this post and didnt realize it was you until now.
2nd: Your hair is beautiful as always and since you’re one of my bestest friends, I have assigned you to be my hair mentor!
No henna…yet. I’m actually growing out my colored ends because they’re very damaged. I’ve trimmed about 3 inches off already.
Beautiful Hair ! How did you get your hair color..do you henna ? very pretty.
Beautiful Hair! How did you get your color…do you henna ? So pretty.
This is so pretty!!
OMG this is gorgeous
well day 1 looked fabulous!
i agree that with shorter hair, this style doesn’t last as long. i ended up putting on a headband and smoothing my wet hands over the very ends of my hair to un-smoosh the curl. but obviously, this causes the ends to revert back to their original texture, not the set curl look. it basically looked like a wash-n-go, haha! i might save this style for when my hair gets longer.
Geez thanks for the compliments! I’m definitely not trying to jack Nikki’s signature style (she rocks it too well), I just wanted to give it a try with the Lustrasilk. The results were cool, but there are some things I will do differently next time. IMO, shorter and/or thicker hair requires more than 20 twists and 8-11 hours drying time. Also, shorter hair doesn’t weigh down as much as longer hair, so the next day hair may be a little poofy and frizzy. Those pictures are from day 1 and it did not look nearly as good the next day…even with the shea butter on the ends. I used a little Ojon Restorative Treatment as well and that helped, but it still didn’t look as nice as day 1.
DAAAAAAANGGGG…YOUR HAIR IS BEAUTIFUL….hOPE TO SEE MORE PICS OF YOU….vERY bEAUTIFUL.
Very nice! I tried twisting with the olive oil cholesterol and the result was a hot mess. Has anyone had any luck with the oo cholesterol?
It looks like a shorter version of nikki’s hair 🙂
Your hair looks so healthy, pretty, and full. I’m still trying to figure out a hairstyle and products that work well with my texture, as well as, figure out my texture!
your hair came out lovely!!!
I would love to see more pics of her hair, since this is the first time I have seen someone with a similar texture to mine.
It looks wonderful.
Looks really good!
I’ll definitely be trying that tonight! I love the results!
Yall are making me jealous! I can’t find the Shea Butter cholesterol anywhere in Dallas so I ordered it online from Sally’s. I was supposed to get it yesterday but my package was damaged during shipment :(. Don’t know when I’ll get to try it, but I’m so excited about it.
Very pretty. :o)
Your hair is gorgeous.
