Wash Day + TwistOuts ft. New Hair Products

Hey Guys!

It’s been a long while, however I’m back with a review on some new products I finally got to try. In case you didn’t know between last month and earlier this month, I was rocking a protective style – Faux Locs. Since then, I’ve washed and deep conditioned my hair a few times and I think I’m now ready to give an honest review on the products used. I didn’t use products from one specific brand, but rather three which include Shea Moisture, Eden Body Works and TGIN.

Wash day-2

Products Used:

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner
TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask
Eden Body Works Natural Curl Defining Cream
Mixture of oils (Castor Oil, Jojoba, Olive Oil)



Shea Moisture: Shampoo & Conditioner

You can tell people (me) don’t read the fine print on labels; only after purchasing I realized that the bottles said for “transitioning hair”. When I was in the store the only thing that stood out to me was moisture retention because this was my biggest problem to conquer. Nonetheless, they were already bought so I’ll continue to use them.

With these products a little really does go a long way. Other sulfate free products that I’ve tried before tend not to lather without using plenty, but surprisingly this took way less. Another plus was the moisture it added while I washing, my hair felt incredibly soft and was easy to detangle. The conditioner can also be used as leave-in!

Price: US $7.99 – $8.99 (Target)


TGIN: Honey Hair Mask

Since I recently took my hair down from a protective style I decided to up my game with the deep conditioning regimen. I’ve heard nothing but great reviews for TGIN products, especially this mask so I definitely had to purchase it on my last haul. I wish I could afford all the products in this line, but one at a time will do.

It’s no surprise that this mask smells AMAZING, almost like something you’d want to eat. It uses raw honey and olive oil which are both moisturizing for your hair, in addition to jojoba oil to seal in the moisture. Just like the products before, this mask is sulfate free as well as paraben, dye and aluminum free. Unfortunately, I don’t own a hooded hair-dryer or steamer, so I decided to put a plastic cap on and leave it overnight. After rinsing in the morning I simply rocked a basic “wash n go”.

Price: US $13.29 (Target)



Eden Body Works Natural Curl Defining Cream

I used this for different hairstyles on two separate occasions, one was a wash n’ go while the other was a twist out. They both worked seemingly okay. My twists came out shiny and juicy, my hair was soft and I was fairly surprised at the outcome. The style didn’t last forever though. This is also my first time using Eden Body Works; the cream was thick and a little went a long way with the LOC method.

Price: US $10.29 (Amazon)

That’s all for now!
How often do you guys moisturize your hair?

  1. […] Rinse with warm water and condition after. I used my Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner. […]


  2. […] *phew* During my natural hair journey I kept seeing advertisements of these products and how wonderful they were. I desperately wanted to try them but couldn’t find any in a store here and the price range was a little higher than other brands. I waited until I travelled to purchase it and there has been absolutely no regrets. This has been my go-to deep conditioner.Check out a mini review here! […]


  3. […] There are other Shea Moisture products which usually work for me but I was really disappointed by this one. The “intensive hydration” really got me because I know my struggle with moisture retention. I shall stick to my Raw Shea Butter line. […]

  7. Your hair looks so moisturized after using the TGIN! Look at that curl definition!

    I’m texlaxed and I’d say I moisturize my hair anywhere from once a week to once every other day (I’m terribly inconsistent). Fortunately, it’s pretty low-maintenance when it comes to moisturizing. I just need water & an oil jelly!

    1. Thanks so much! Lucky you, I think I’m going to have to start moisturizing every other day, but I still don’t think I have the right products or maybe need new methods to retain the moisture.


  8. I’ve been meaning to try tgin for the longest, think I finally will purchase it.

    1. Most definitely! I’m trying to get my hands on other products in their line. They’re definitely a little pricier than the options tho
