New 'Do! Entwine Review

Hello Lovelies! 

I recently posted a picture on my Instagram and Facebook and mentioned I did something different with my hair! Well, here is the story.
 
Washed, conditioned and detangled hair patiently awaiting a styling decision...

Over the years that I've worn my hair in its natural state, you could ever describe me as a product junkie!  Although to some that could be a positive, it does have it cons. One negative is that I rarely experiment with my hair and I often suffer from hair boredom. So, with all the many options out there, where is a curly girl to start?! Well actually, my own bathroom cabinet was a great place. I attended a natural hair expo last year and picked up a few different products I wanted to review but just never really got around to it [procrastination wins again].

A friend recommended I try Entwine Couture products. They have a full line of products but I purchased three items.
1.     Indulgently Luxe – Exotique Butter Créme Hydrator
2.     The Manipulator – Créme Jelle Styler
3.     Afrodisia 9 – Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion


I was really interested to see if this line would live up to the quality the presenters promised during the hair expo. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Sue me, I can be a pessimist when I know it is someone’s job to sell me something. I decided to use the products to create a flexi rod set of curls on my hair. 

Afrodisia 9 – Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion
It is described as a ultra light daily crème moisturizer. It gets its name for the 9 uses: Long-lasting hydration, Texture Enhancing, Fabulous Slip & Detangling, Reduced Frizz, Healthy Hair Growth, Strengthens and Fortifies, Beautiful Shine, Split End Prevention & UV Protection. (ingredients for this product seem to be missing from their site)
 {AFRODISIA 9} Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion 8oz.
My opinion: This is a very, very lightweight product. I think in the future I’d use it as a touch-up moisturizer. For example: Put a little on my ends as do jumbo twists prepping for bed time. If you already use have an oil mix or water in a spritzer bottle, then you can keep using it instead. (again, my opinion)

Indulgently Luxe – Exotique Butter Créme Hydrator
It is described as a tool to soften, condition and moisturize hair. It is to be used prior to styling. It is a hair butter that contains ingredients such as palm fruit, safflower, pomegranate, shea butter and other conditioners. Click here for a full list of ingredients. 
 {INDULGENTLY LUXE} Exotique Butter Créme Hydrator 4oz
My opinion: It did exactly what it said it was going to do. I like the texture and consistency of this product. I used this product after the Exotique Leave-In. It was creamy and lighter than my homemade shea butter “Kitchen Mix” and I liked that. It has a pleasant smell. Not overpowering at all. I could definitely see myself using it again as a hydrator while doing a twist-out on slightly damp hair.
Don't judge my satin cap! LOL Flexi rod set complete! Do I really feel as tired as a I look? Yes!


The Manipulator – Créme Jelle Styler
It is described as a crème-gel that helps hold and form natural hair styles. It is said to reduce frizz, no flaking or crunchy hair and also does not contain mineral oil, petroleum, phthalate-free or parabens. Click here for a full list of ingredients.

{THE MANIPULATOR} Créme Jelle Styler 4oz
My opinion: I think I love it! My curls were soft, bouncy, shiny and smooth. I am pretty heavy-handed when using hair products. I tend to like really heavy products because my hair is very fluffy and dense. I actually like products to “weigh it down”. It gave my hair a lot of definition and hold. The smell is a little stronger in product than I’d like by fragrance is subjective.  Since now I know I could have gotten the same results with less product (a little does go a long way), next time I’ll use a little less.
Next morning! Bounce and Shine! I'm happy!

Overall, I really liked my result and plan to continue using Entwine for my rod sets. The products are a little pricey for me but since I purchased them during a hair expo I got an awesome deal.

    1. What do you primarily use the Afrodisia 9 for? Daily moisturizer?
