Totally Twisted

I have been hearing bunches about Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration and Totally Twisted conditioners. So I thought I would give one a try, I say one in an effort to control my PJness. So I couldn't wait to get to Wal-Mart to get the conditioner, castor oil and MSM. Then I got there of course added on a few things like these cool sponge rollers that have a satin slip on them to prevent breakage and drying out the hair. I also got a few extra duck bill clips.

So this is the set up I used to complete my style.

Herbal Essence Totally Twisted ( I chose this one first since it made esp. for curls and waves
Infusium 23 leave-in
Detangling Comb
Duck bill Clips
QP Elasta Mango Butter
No break hair bands

I did about 15 or so twists and then put organics growth oil on my finger-parted parts. I woke up and the hair was dry but I had to make a trip to the gym, so I left them twisted while working out. After working out, I showered and then had to use the blow-dryer on low heat, low power to dry roots as much as possible. Afterwards I did my fluffing and part covering and threw on a headband.

Here are the results.

I like using the smaller twists better for definition but I like the bigger twists for the bigger look over all.
Conditioner verdict: I am in love with the heavenly smell of the conditioner. It gave me good slip but I couldn't tell if it were any more slip than Creme of Nature that I have been using. However I noticed right away the difference it made in my curl pattern. I would have worn it like that without twisting if I had no relaxed ends to weigh the front down.
