Review #27: Siamese Twists

Hey Guys

Okay first off please forgive me for the lack of posts. I have started a new job working with babies and being that I have three kids of my own, I am extremely tried when I come home. Having to deal with my kids before work, then go to deal with infants, and then back home to mines. Not to mention I still have school work that needs to be done. But anyway, I am going to try to bring you a post or two a week and I will be starting off with a review.

I was contacted a week ago by the owner of Siamese Twist, "Ms. Nik", with an opportunity to do a review. I initially contact her in the beginning of last year and she told me she would get back to me when she came out with a new product. Well I was contacted and here is my review.

My Experience: I received the butter on the 11th. I hadn't washed my hair since the 1st of March when I clarified my hair using the new Neutrogena Anti breakage set. *Review* My hair had product on it but was a little dry. I used it that night on old hair and when I took my hair out the next morning the definition was excellent. Through out the day, from weather to kids grabbing my hair, my twist out was still in tacked. My roots frizzed up no doubt but my curls remained. That night when I got home I did notice that my hair need a moisture lift. This was from me not moisturizing my hair since I believe that Saturday and water is not in the list of ingredients on this product. I decided to use Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide before using the twist butter. When I woke up and took down my hair, my twist out was the everything. My hair stayed moisturized through the Nevada weather and going to work. I didn't need to reapply any thing that night I just simple put my hair in 12 large twist before wrapping my hair up that night. Friday morning my hair was still extremely moisturized like I just put the product in the night before. Only thing that ruined my curls was spraying it with a refresher. I haven't found a refresher that actually brings out my curls and not frizzing it up. Saturday night I washed my hair with my staple Ouidad for a cleanser, Curl Junkie for my rinse out, and then I used the Light Protein Hair Reconstructor for my deep conditioner. I did not use heat just put on a plastic cap and let it set for an hour. Once I did rinse it out, even though it is light, I had to rinse my hair twice to get the product out. My hair did absorb it well and being that it was a treatment it left my hair soft like a conditioner would. Once I was done coloring my hair I used Apohgee Leave-in and then seal with the twisting butter. OMG I CAN NOT TELL YOU GUYS HOW WELLLLLL DEFINED MY HAIR WAS!!!! The moisture level was off the charts. I just could stop touching or looking at my beautiful curls.
 I love my products to have a sweet or perfume smell to it. That being said when I seen the label stating lemon cake I had to prepare myself. When I opened the jar I had to restrain myself from licking the jar. My mind confused it for a second with butter crème icing and I was about to go to town.
  The feel of both of these products are extra light, like a air whipped type butter. When I initially opened the jars I felt like I would need to be generous with these products but I was totally wrong. My first use of the butter I just used the product that was in the lid and for the reconstructor I hardly put a dent in it.
Ms. Nik has developed a new label for her new brand of items so be on the look out for that.
Pricing for me is right in the range of the quality of the products. Being that they are all natural I expect the prices to be different then products that you by out of a regular store because they are not loaded with harmful ingredients.
Will I be purchasing again? Yes I would definitely like to repurchase the twisting butter. The smell alone won me over and the results of my twist out made me reach for it for the pass couple of days instead of my staple. The reconstructor was a little heavy for my hair because I have fine hair. A natural with a coarser texture I feel this product would be perfect for them. It preform the task it was meant to do by giving my hair the light boost it need and that was shown by how well my hair took to the coloring I did.

Lemon Cake Twist Butter: A+
Light Protein Hair Reconstructor: B-
