Twist out + Garnier Fructis Product Review

Divas,

I’m back with a curly girl hair style that will have you feeling playful! So yes as we know, I love me a twist out. But why not switch it up and try some different products!

No harm in that! So I got my hands on this Garner Fructis curling gel, and I must say It smells so fruity I thought I was going to curl my way to a sandy beach island! Okay okay maybe not quiet an island.

First Impression

This product is not sticky, it’s very light, smells good and it full of nutrients and all that good stuff for your hair! So If you do not know how to do a twist out I’ll refer you to watch one of my earlier YouTube video  How to do a Twist Out.

This product actually worked well on my hair! It has a soft -no crunchy hold, however my curls are super defined and still look fresh after 4 days! When it comes to my hair.. any signs of fuzz.. or if the curl starts to get super stretched i’m ready to retest, co-wash and do it all over!!

Anyways do I like this product?: Yes!

Do i recommend you try it?: Yes

Is it cheap?: The cost was reasonable

U-2-Cantu: My Wash Day Hair Products

Hey Divas,

There are a few staple hair products that every Divas needs in their closet to keep your hair looking Diva-Licious! I have natural hair so I like to use natural products. Natural hair products are products that are free of sulfates and that have organic ingredients that treat and moisturize your hair. Ladies if you have relaxed or color treated hair you can use these products as well! The products that I use come form the Cantu she Butter: for natural hair. This line also has products for relaxed and color treated hair. But be mindful those products do have sulfates which can be harmful to your hair. Below is a brief list of each products that I use on wash day!

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Sulfate-Free Cleansing cream shampoo

This product gently removes heavy buildup, leaves hair health and clean, and is made with 100% she butter.

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Sulfate-Free Hydrating Cream Conditioner

The Cantu conditioner helps retain natural oils, leaves hair moisturized and hydrated and also is made with %100 shea butter. Divas let me tell you this product is the bomb. It is great for detangling you hair, it leaves my hair very soft and shinny.

  • Cantu Argon Oil: Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream

So every diva needs a leave in conditioner and by far this is the best product I have ever used. It smells great doesn’t leave any messy build up! I have also tried the shea butter leave in, it works just as great. This leave in conditioner can also be used for twist out, braid out, wash-n-go and everyday styling. if you want a tutorial leave comment below. This product deeply moisturizes hair and helps repair dry damaged hair from over heated and formulated styled hair.

  • Cantu Shea Butter: Thermal Shield Heat Protectant

This heat protectant protects your hair up to 425F degrees. it smells great its light, not oily and is infused with she butter to soften your hair.

***You can find these products at Wal-Mart, Sally’s, Target and at your local beauty supply. Note that prices may vary. I find that Wal-Mart carries these product the cheapest but it is always sold out. Sally has recently added this product to their shelves, however if you do not see it on the shelf ask for it! They have it in the back. These product normally retails at $4-$6 depending on where it is purchased.

These products are amazing! they leave my hair smelling good, moisturized, silky and shinny. I give these products a 10+

Divas If you would like to see a tutorial on any of these products leave me a comment!

Happy Hair Divas
