Question: What is your favorite styling product for braids, twists etc?

I can't wait to try some of the most popular hair products on my chlidrens hair. I know many of you have already figured out what products are best for braids and twists. So my question is, which is your favorite hair product for braids, twists etc? I need to find something asap. So help me people! :)


  1. Hi! I'm really picky about ingredients. I don't want anything harmful (or even potentially harmful!) going on my daughter's skin. They say if you wouldn't eat it, don't put it on your skin! (because your skin is your largest organ of your body and we absorb so much through our skin)

    So I check everything I'm interested at for toxicity levels.

    That said, I love Original Sprout's leave in conditioner, I haven't tried her hair balm or gel - but they might work! ( swears by the hair balm :) )

    I also like using coconut oil and shea butter for braids, but they don't really have any long lasting hold.

    You can make your own gel with flaxseed (although, I wouldn't use it everyday because I hear flax is estrogenic) here's a recipe ...

    another gel that I trust the ingredients is Tate's gel (here's my review! )

    I hope that helps! I'm just starting to get interested in products, and mostly my addiction is centered around conditioners at the moment, so I certainly don't profess to call myself an expert! Good luck in your search!

  2. Thanks so much for all the info Dreamer,

    I've heard many great reviews about the homemade flax gel. Once I took flaxseed oil caps for about 3 weeks and my whole face became hairy. lol. NEVER again. So I don't know if I want to even come close to flaxseed. oh my.

    I'm addicted to conditioners too, I try many, but always come back to HEHH.


Don't be shy. We love comments!
