Vatika Oil- My new Pre-Poo

Standard

After reading Hairscapades review on Vatika Oil I decided to try it. I went to my local Indian grocery store and after looking lost for about 5 minutes I found it. I was in awe at all the things they had for a cheap price!

My Review:

I decided that my hair needed to be washed after wearing it in a puff and banana clip since Friday. I pre pooed with the Vatika Enriched Coconut Oil. My first thought after melting it in a bowl of warm water was the smell. I cook with ginger so I am very used to the smell. But the gingery smell caught me off guard. It is a very strong odor that I could not smell on a daily basis. So a pre poo is as far as I can go with this oil.

After I let the oil sit in my hair for about 30 minutes I washed it out with Keracare Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo, and DC with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner for about and hour without heat.

 

Result: I liked it. I could feel and see and the difference in my hair. My hair felt so soft! It looked so moisturized! This will definitely be a staple in my regimen!

Twists: Should I or shouldn’t I?

Standard

Okay so I have been fully natural for almost 2 years in May. I have done plenty of twist-outs but I cannot find the strength to wear the twists in public.

 Last night I spent 2 hours twisting my hair and told myself that tomorrow would be the day I would wear them out to work. When I woke up in the morning and took off my bonnet…Honey I looked about 12! No way no how! I am currently wearing a twist out that I had to pin up. Maybe I am doing the twists wrong but they are just too thin for me.

My natural curls are too curly and the twists look like 2 curls that have wrapped around each other. I want plump twists. I guess I will have to Henna and see what my hair does after that. Maybe it will thicken up some. Maybe I wasn’t meant to have thick hair.

 

Do you wear your twists out or am I the only one to have this problem? What products can I use to get plump twists?
