RESULTS ON MY AFRO VEDA TOTALLY TWISTED GINGER ALMOND BUTTER...




As salaamu alaikum & Hello Ladies,

As promised I will share my results on the Afro Veda "Totally Twisted"  so here it is :

FIRST

I co washed my hair with both Sauve Tropical Coconut  & VO5 Moisture Milks Passion fruit smoothie conditioners.  Mixed together.

SECOND

I did a Baking Soda conditioner

Ingredients:
1 cup of your conditioner of your choice
1/2 cup of baking soda
mix well,  Apply this to soaking wet hair & cover with a shower cap or plastic  bag.
Leave in for 30 minutes.  Rinse well with warm water, making sure that your final rinse is with cold water .  To seal in moisture. 

NEXT

I applied  my homemade leave-in conditioner :

INGREDIENTS : ( This is one of my many ways to make this conditioner, will share others at a later date)

2 ounces of favorite conditioner ( I use suave)
1 1/2 ounce distilled water
1/8 cup or so of favorite carrier oil
3 tablespoons of rosewater
10 drops of lavender oil ( or oil of your choice)

LASTLY

I applied my Afro Veda " Totally Twisted" to my 3b/ 3c wet hair.  Using the smoothing method.  Being careful not to use to much , but making sure to use enough. 

MY FINDINGS

Wearing my hair in a wash n go.  I allowed my hair to totally dry, making completely sure not to touch it what so ever ( I struggle with that somtimes, lol ).
My hair was frizz free ( love that ) , super soft, smelled delightful, the shine was ok ( I would have wished for just a bit more, shine).  However, my hair felt very moisturized.  But, I really need just a little more hold for my curls.  Annnd.... It took forever to dry ( I hate that ! lol )

Over all, I would say that this product was pretty good, with the exception of not enough shine for me, but as you ladies know there is always, always.  Ways, to adjust or products to our liking add a little here . add a little there.  That is one of the many, many joy's of being Natural.

I plan to give this product another try soon, maybe adding a little here and there.  Using a tuck n go style.  I will keep you ladies posted.  A special thanks to the lovely " Chocolate Orchid " , because without her contest I may have never come across this product.

                                                                                            ENJOY!!!
