Over the past week, I've been using a couple of the TGIN "Thank God It's Natural" hair products. Before purchasing these two items, I was in need of a good moisturizer and leave in conditioner so I headed to Sally's Beauty Supply. I stood in the natural hair aisle for at least 15-20 minutes staring at all the products, not knowing what to get! I wanted to try something new because I have yet to find a staple daily moisturizer for my hair and was looking for a good leave in conditioner to restore moisture back. I eventually zoomed in on the TGIN products as they were having a sale. I decided to buy them. I've had a week to try these products and here's what I think...
Green Tea Super Moist Leave-In Conditioner- $15.99
The leave-in conditioner bottle says that it "promotes healthy hair growth, detangles knots and tangles, reduces frizz and flyaways and leaves hair feeling soft, smooth and shiny."
This product smells lovely and has a very smooth and "milky" consistency. I applied the product to my hair once rinsing out my conditioner. I detangled my hair once the product was evenly distributed through each section of my hair and it detangled easily with the product in. I let my hair air dry a little after finishing my detangling process. It left my hair sooo soft and manageable. Overall, I really liked this product and would purchase it again!
Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer- $15.89
The butter cream daily moisturizer say "it's enriched with shea butter, cocoa butter, and Vitamin E...will give your strands the moisture they need and crave for soft, shiny, manageable hair. No parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, lanolin, artificial colors or animal testing." The jar also said that it could be used as a setting cream to create soft, smooth and shiny two strand twists and twist outs.
The moisturizer has a very creamy consistency, which is what I was searching for. The smell has a very light, clean and pleasant scent. I used this product after using the leave in conditioner first. I then applied olive oil to each section of hair and applied the moisturizer. Since the jar said that it could be used as a setting cream for twists outs, I decided to not use any curl defining cream with it. I just flat twisted my hair and let it set overnight.
The next morning, I untwisted my hair. My hair was very shiny, felt soft and looked moisturized! However, my twists seemed to be quite frizzy once I tried to pick and shape my hair. After I couldn't get the look that I wanted, I decided to just put it up in a puff. 9 times out of 10 that always works for me when my hair doesn't have much definition. Overall, I like the product and will continue using it but I will pair it with a twisting cream for my twist-out overnight preparation next time.
The Final Look!
