I’d just about given up. It felt like I’d tried everything but nothing would give me that much sought after cute twist out that I kept seeing all over Pinterest and YouTube. Then two weeks ago on a whim I decided to order The Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian 24 Karat Glistening Gold Twisting Gel. I am so glad I did.
Just to get a bit of perspective, my hair is natural and would be mainly and O on the Lois hair typing system. On the Andre Walker hair typing system, mainly 4B hair. if I include the additional type added to the Andre Walker System by the natural hair community I’d be a 4C.
Previous attempts to get a twist out have not been too successful but I’d heard so much buzz about this product I decided to give it a try. The results were beyond expectation.
How I did my Twist Out.
I started out with clean damp hair sectioned into four plaits. I moisturized each section using SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Leave-In Conditioner and sealed it with Acure Organics Argan Oil.
Getting just a dab of The Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian 24 Karat Gold Twisting Gel on my fingers, I created several twist in each section. I was sure to get product right down to the ends of each twist. If I got to a section that had dried I used a spray bottle of water to damp the section again. Once done I sectioned my twist and for neatness until the evening. When I headed to bed I tied my hair up in a scarf to keep the twist neat.
The Take Down
Early this morning I set about taking down my twist. I applied Acure Organics Argan Oil to my hands and then began taking down my hair. I undid did each twist and then went through once more separating each small section.
The rock star of this production was most definitely the Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian 24 Karat Gold Twisting Gel. What I love beside the definition in the curl, is the feel of my hair. It looks great without being unpleasant to the touch. My hair feels soft and not tacky at all. At least on day one it has bounce and movement. I’ll definitely repurchase this product in the future.
I have yet to try a wash and go with this product. If you have a thick curly hair and nothing else has worked for you maybe give this one a try. Please let me know what you think? Have any of you tried it? Does it work for a wash and go?
That’s all for now. With Love Michelle
