- Increases moisture and shine
- All natural
- Best used on freshly twisted hair
I usually wear my hair in twists and need a twisting cream to moisture each twist as I go through sections of my hair. Up until this point, I used Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus and Qhemet Biologics Amala Heavy Cream, both my staples. I tried this Twist & Lock cream just to see how it compares to the others. I have to say that I really, really like this for twisting. I am pretty generous with the amount I use, and my hair does not feel greasy or sticky after it dryes. I have to say that I will probably switch off between Shea Moisture and Twist & Lock. Highly recommend this product.
Greasy and Heavy
I am not a fan of ANY Jane Carter products, with maybe the exception of her Heat Protectant Spray.I decided to try the Twist and Lock on my braid out since I had received a free tub of it in one of the bags of samples that I used to get from my old job at an organic grocery store. This came in the bag as well as the Heat Spray. I was turned off by the smell first. It’s horrible. I don’t know how to describe it but it smells like a weird, dead flower. Not overpowering, just not pleasant. It has a strong undertone of some citrus, I don’t know what kind but it is not a good scent. I did not use this product for a very long time because I could not get past the smell. When I used it on my braid out I was so dissapointed.I went to sleep with my braids in and unwound them and found that though the Twist and Lock had prevented frizz (a bonus) it had left a very greasy feeling on my hair. It was also weighed down and the consistency of the cream was tacky, like glue. It stuck to my fingers as I applied it. I’m not impressed with the product and will not use it again. Now I have a tube of it that I don’t like and will probably sell for cheap because I am never going to use it again. I may stop using the heat spray too as that also leaves my hair feeling very greasy after I flat iron.Maybe it’s better for those with kinkier textures? I feel like it’s too heavy for my fine curls. Oh well. I didn’t spend any money on it, so no loss to me.
I really enjoy this product. A little bit goes a long way and it does great to hold twists in place. I used this product on my two strand twists and it had a very pleasant citrus scent and a creamy consistency. It was also moisturizing and when I took the twists out, they didn’t feel dry or brittle and there was NO frizz. I was extra excited that my twist out held up for longer than a couple of days.
Nice smell & packaging
The container is bright and cheerful and the smell is nice, but the product has more water in it than I like. My hair did not appear shinier and was not softer. I’m somewhat neutral related to the product and will continue to use it, but would try another product of JC’s before making a final decision.
I love this product for my locs. I wash and condition my hair and then I use my Twist and Lock. I only require a small amount and it works great. I have discontinued going to the beauty parlor to re-twist my hair since I can do it at home with this product. I don’t even have to sit under the dryer in order for it to set. I put it on, twist my hair, use a clip and walk around and let my hair air dry. This is a great product for locs.
A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN BABY! IN A SMALL CONTAINER
OK,I TRIED FIRST JANE CARTER NOURISH AND SHINE, IT WORKED GREAT.NOW I’VE TRIED JANE CARTER TWIST AND LOCK AND I HAVE TO SAY YEEEEES! BABY.THIS PRODUCT GIVES MY HAIR THAT SOFTNESS I’M LOOKING FOR,AND IT HOLDS A TWO STRAND TWIST VERY WELL, BUT I’M STILL HAVING PROBLEMS FINDING THAT PRODUCT THAT KEEPS MY HAIR MOISTURIZED AND A PRODUCT THAT GIVES ME A NATURAL DEFINE CURL PATTERN WITHOUT TWO STRAND TWISTING ALL THE F* TIME. I’M THINKING ABOUT TRYING ANOTHER PRODUCT LINE FOR MOISTURE AND DEFINING MY CURLS ITS CALLED 4 NATURAL AFRO STRETCH CURL CREAM,SOME PEOPLE SAY IT’S GOOD FOR HAIR TYPES 4A-4C/KINKY-COILY HAIR.(PROBLEMS WITH KEEPING HAIR MOISTURIZED AND A DEFINE CURL PATTERN).
