Working 40 hours a week and having your hair done everyday is a lot of work. Especially if you have 4C natural hair that is prone to dryness and therefore needs to be re-moisturized every few days. I’ve used the Entwine Couture line of products previously in my 4C Guide to Curls series and they are some bomb products, so when they contacted me about reviewing their products again, I was on it! Yes ma’am! Their Exotiqüe Butter-Crème Hydrator is one of my FAVORITE moisturizers. It leaves your hair super soft with a great shine and will last for up to 5 days. It’s also a great moisturizer for the winter time because it has the right balance of humectants to keep your hair moisturized without counteracting in the cold air.
They sent me the full suite of the natural hair products, including their new leave-in conditioner the Afrodisia 9 Leave-In Potion, which I had not tried before. I washed my hair with their Cleansing Duo set (Shampoo + Conditioner), this is the only product(s) from Entwine that I’m not super crazy about. I have nothing negative to say about it but it was just cool for me. The shampoo is sulfate free. Twas cool.
That Afrodisia 9 Leave-In is GREAT! It works so perfectly with the product line and I’ve been using it ever since whenever I want to refresh my hair, because it allows me to re-moisturize my hair without loosing my current style or too much definition. I prefer the Jelly Styler over the Creme De La Mold, because I find that it provides a better and more flexible hold, but I also may not be using the Creme de La Mold correctly, so I think I’m going to give it another try. Either product, paired with the leave-in and then the creme hydrator is great. You know how hard it is for 4C natural hair to get a shine and this product line definitely delivers all around.
In my video I show you how I style my hair in flattwists with bantu knots and then regular bantu knots. I wanted to show the difference in the style and also show folks how to achieve a curly style without any curlers. Personally I always before the flat twists but on my lazy in-between days ain’t nothing wrong with a bantu.
Which style do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below.
