Hey there kinky krew 🙂
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect products to help me achieve more defined and moisturized twists on my naturally dry type 4c/4b hair. After searching the internet for what my fellow naturalista’s favorite twisting creams were, I came across the Blueberry Bliss Twist-N-Shout leave-in cream. I had heard so many naturals going off about the Blueberry Bliss line, but I’d been skeptical because most of these women had looser textures than I do. However, I decided to give it a try because I need to start investing in better products for my hair, and I’ve heard the quality of the “Curls” products are A1!
I started on air-dried hair and twisted my hair into medium sized twists using the Twist-N-Shout cream. I then re-wet my edges with Aloe Vera Juice Spritz and applied the Blueberry Control Paste with a toothbrush and tied them down loosely with a satin scarf. I unraveled the next day with a bit of Avocado Oil on my finger tips when my hair was completely dry.
The consistency of the product is extremely thick and moisturizing which is what I look for in a twisting cream. It almost mimics a frosting like texture, which is ironic because of the super sweet smell. Overall I loved how easily it distributed throughout my thick coarse hair, providing slip and giving me that moisture my hair needs. I was able to detangle with ease while twisting which is a “make it or break it” factor for me with twisting creams/butters. Have you ever tried twisting with a product that actually mattes and tangles your hair as you’re trying to get through it? I have, and I did not experience one single tangle while using this product. It actually made my hair feel super soft, moisturized and manageable. The Control Paste was another win for me. It glides on soft to the edges and laid them all day long with the help of my trusty silk scarf.
If you like really sweet smelling products for your hair, this is definitely something to try. The day after using this product I got several compliments on how nice I smelled at work. Someone even asked what I was wearing because my hair smelled so good! I personally thought the smell was really nice and not overwhelming at all.
All of the “Curls” products contain NO sulfates, silicones, parabens, artificial oils, colors, or fragrances- So if you’re like me, and will stand in the aisle of Target reading ingredients, no need, they’ve got you covered! The Twist-N-Shout Cream contains Blueberry Extract, Organic Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and my personal favorite Avocado Oil, I can see why my hair soaked this stuff up so much. Then the Control Paste is formulated with Castor Oil, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, and Vegetable Glycerin, just to name a few. Not only made to lay edges but contain ingredients that will keep them thick and healthy.
My curls the next day were perfectly defined and contained zero frizz! I will say you must make sure your twists are completely dry before taking them down, but other than that I loved how my hair came out. I will definitely be doing more twisting styles with the Twist-N-Shout Cream, as well as the Control Paste and repurchasing when I start running low.
If you’re a coily girl and you see the Blueberry Bliss line at your local Target or CVS don’t be scared to try it out! I highly recommend the products I’ve tested so far and I’m looking forward to testing out more for an “in-shower” Wash and Go I want to try, so look out for more reviews!
