What's the best twist cream??

Curly_DawnCurly_Dawn Posts: 17Registered Users
Hello all,

I'm reposting this in this board. I posted it in the 4b forum by accident. Any who...

I was wondering what you would suggest as a really good twist cream for a twist out, or flat twist out that will leave my hair shiny, soft, moveable, and elongated. I am protein sensitive and my hair tends to dry out from products containing carbomer.

I have been eyeing the Donna Marie Dream Curling Cream, but I want to get your input on this as well as other products you've tried.

Thanks to all that responds!

    That does work very well to define, but I want it to have a little more hold than what shea butter and oil gives by themselves.

    I will have to check in to that. How long did your twist out last?

    For more hold I recommend cantu shea butter leave cream or karen body beautiful butter love. I like the butter love b/c it defines and smells great. Cantu gives me to much definition im not a huge fan of the jerry curl look.

    If you don't mind my asking-

    When you say 'holds for 5-7-10 days' do you re-twist at night or just pineapple? I would love for my twist outs to last that long without having to re-twist.

    It really depends on you and your hair. Since I go to the gym most days of the week, I have to retwist - it also depends on the type of night I'm having. If I know I'm going to have a "mellow" night and morning w/o gym, I pineapple.

    Thank you! I'm tempted to try the Afroveda, I've read many positives about the product, but not the company.

    Great point, thanks! I'm training for a 10k so achieving 7 day hair would be futile anyway. Having the option would be great though.
