As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies,  A few weeks back or so, I expressed a need for a new moisturizer.
In that post I had brought and added to my regimen the Nourish & Shine.  Since then I have also added the Twist & Lock , which is also by jane carter.   I have been using the both of them together for about a week now....and ladies I must tell you I think I really like this two products as my moisturizing products.  I plan to give both of these products a complete month , before the very final verdict is in.....and you ladies know I will keep you guys posted.  With a full review / update.  Here is how I apply both of these great products together.

First, I spray my hair with my vegetable glycerin & water spritz ( I do this sometimes 2-3 daily, when ever I feel my hair may need it and often its just once daily.)
Then, I apply the " Twist & lock " as my moisturizer.... Then the" Nourish & Shine" to seal my hair.
That is it as far as moisturizing.  Now.... I have thought about , trying a few of her other products to see if I want to completely use jane carter products for everything.

Then I thought ...if its not broke... dont fix it.... type of thing.  I mean if my only concern and problem area was moisturizers, and all of my other products are working just fine...shampoo....deep moisturizing conditioner...protein treatments....homemade herb infused oils for scalp only....annnd my lovely Uncle funkys daughter " curly Magic"  and they all work together just fine.  Then why change ...especially if I am having such great results with these products, and my hair is thriving.

So, I will keep you guys posted on that as well. It has been said that the twist & Lock is for just that... twists and locks.  Well , I dont have locks ...and I do not wear my hair in twist ( more like a simple twist and tuck as protective style from time to time)  I am a wash n go ..curly big afro type of natural.  And "twist & lock" seems to be working just fine ...thus far in that area, along with the "nourish & Shine".  Here is a bit more on the "Twist & Lock"

Hi Zainab, I like the lock and twist gel. It really makes my twists look nice. It tested at 6 (pH) in case you were wondering. So it's definitely safe for our hair
