So for my recent hair regimen I have been using texturemenatural Auntie Cookies Moisture Cream (16 oz) and Hair Healing Butter (8 oz). it has been working on my hair like a dream. I also have the conditioner but I’ve only used it twice, it works great too and it smells sooooo good. I bought the lemon grass scent. I will never willingly go back to my old regimen unless she stops selling her supplies.
This is how the moisturizer looked when it arrived. I’m not going to lie, I was a little shocked when I saw the part of the cream that looked like someone poked their finger in it. (Im always suspicious of the USPS. But after using it and reshaping it, I realized it does it on its own. The mailman is innocent! Lol.
To test her products (conditioner, moisturizer, sealer) when I received them, I re-braided my hair but this time shoulder length. Before it was down mid-back. So I cut my long box braids the length I wanted them. Then I un-braided my hair taking each strand of synthetic hair I un-braided and wrapping it in a little piece of silver foil. I did this for each strand so that I could re-use the hair without having to sort it out.
I know some may think why re-use synthetic hair? Its cheap and easy to get. Well for me when the hair has already been braided making it easier to re-braid. If you braid hair then you know with new hair you always have to go through getting the kinks out of the hair and sorting it. With hair that is already braided its been parted and sorted already so its a breeze to re-use. Plus I dont have to spend extra money, so I saved $16.
I did combed my hair with a wide tooth comb to get all of the loose hair out. Then I began re-braiding my hair and moisturizing each strand with the auntie cookies cream and healing butter. It actually took me two weeks to finish my hair completely lol. I was being lazy. I braided every part of my hair except about 10 braids worth of hair in the middle the first two days then I dragged my feet for two weeks. When I went out or to work, I would just put on a hat and no one noticed at all.
So I have been moisturizing with Auntie Cookies Moisturizer and sealer. My last regimen was carols curl mixed with conditioner then sealed with Rosermary oil and Olive oil. Before I took out my braids from my previous regimen I took photos of how my hair looked after I washed it with Jasons Organic shampoo and moisturized it and sealed it with my old regimen. This time I did the same with Auntie Cookies moisturizer including washing my hair with Jasons Organic shampoo.
To the right is the difference between the two. In my before photo I had my braids in for 19 days. in my after photo I had my braids in for 18 days. With aunties curl cream my hair does not look as dry nor does my scalp look pale. My curl pattern is more dominant and my hair just looks way better lol. I’m very happy with her product not only that but my mom and sis even want it after using it on my 9 month old niece and they’re not even natural, they’re relaxed.
*Update 5/1/13: My sister ordered a sample pack for my niece and she loves it! I ordered the coconut moisturizer and healer along with my sis’s order, unfortunately my hair stop taking in the moisturizer I guess since the temperature has changed and its hot now. The moisturizer is a light and right now my hair wants heavy moisturizers. So I’ve been using conditioner to moisturize along with the healing butter to seal my hair. I love love love the healing butter!*
