Whipped Cream Curl Cream for THICK, KINKY textured tresses
Whipped Cream Curl Cream for THICK, KINKY textured tresses

4.0 out of 5 stars This is easily enough to moisturise my hair, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This curl cream has a fairly thick consistency, and it smells gorgeous. You only need a small amount, as a little goes a long way!
I separate my hair into 3 sections horizontally, and use 1 fingertip full for each section. This is easily enough to moisturise my hair. I then proceed to use my preferred styling cream to twist or plait my hair.
When you spread the cream onto your hands, they go white, yet once the cream is applied to the hair, your hands don't feel slippery or greasy.

You can use this cream for a 'wash and go' style, and your hair will remain very soft, and full of body. I personally don't use it for this method often, as my curl pattern tends to frizz in places, which I don't like. The main reason being that this product does not have any hold. It's purely for moisture and softness.

I would say this curl cream is ideal for thick, course, dry and thirsty hair, as the label suggests. It does my hair the world of good, especially in hot, dry weather, and my own hair is mixed, black/white afro, made up of both 3c and 4b texture.

I got this Kindle book for my 9 year old. I think they would have enjoyed it, had the text been big enough to read!
Even changing the font/text size on the Kindle made no difference :-|

I love these earrings. In fact, I'm wearing them as I type! They are shiny, solid to touch, yet aren't too heavy to wear.
I chose them especially, as they have a butterfly back. The lever back earrings I usually wear tend to bend and break after a few months.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Cheerful, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the single size to use on the single futon in my daughters playhouse. Looks great on both sides, and ties in nicely with the decor. The material feels a little hard, so although I wouldn't use it on my bed, for the price it's great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Vinyl!, 12 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a turntable so I could rediscover my old vinyl. We hadn't had one in the house for about 15 years!
This Pioneer PL-990 is just what I had been looking for.
Assembly was relatively quick and easy. I just had to put the platter in place, attach the belt onto the pulley (The opening on the left on this model btw), and add the mat. Simples!
All was left, was to free the arm of wire, and remove the needle cover.
I plugged the turntable straight into my soundbar, popped on an Old Skool 12" single and couldn't help but shake my thang on the living room floor!
I've introduced my youngest child to some new music she loves, and wowed my 19yr old with some retro 'technology' that he's never seen, and is amazed by!

PROs - Very simple to set up and use, with good sound.

CONs - No off button, and the RCA wires are quite short!

All in all, this was a great buy and I recommend it to anyone.

My daughter asked me to buy these, to top up her stash. These multi-coloured bands come pre-packed in individual bags, which might be beneficial to some if splitting between siblings, for example.
The quality of the bands is good. They are quite stretchy, don't lose shape and do not break easily. My daughter and I are very happy, and would certainly buy them again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shiny Hair, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This leave in conditioner does help to moisturize the hair, and give it sheen.
My hair is extremely porous, and this product does not work well enough for me to buy it again. I sometimes use it on my hair before using a defining custard, so it's not so 'stiff' when dry, and I shall continue too, until the bottles empty as I hate waste!
(If your anything like me, you will have loads of almost full hair care products littering your bathroom!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for me., 22 April 2014
This shampoo smells nice, and lathers well. It makes my hair feel moisturized and silky, and it detangles.
However! I do not use it anymore, as it makes my scalp itch. I thought I wasn't rinsing the product out properly, but this is not the case.
Be sure to rinse your hair well. If the hair still feel very slick, keep going!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff!, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although a bit pricey, this butter cream is really good. I use it for twist outs. My hair is mixed, just past shoulder length (when curly) and extremely frizzy and porous. The texture is mix of 3c and 4a hair.
I wash and condition my hair, and use a large amount of Natural Textures Leave In Conditioner. When damp, (not soaking!), I apply a large finger tip full of the butter cream to each section, and work it in, adding more if necessary.
I cover my hair with a silk scarf, and usually sleep on it. The next morning I take down the twists, and they last about 3-4 days before I need to dampen and retwist at night again. However, I usually just start wearing it in various 'up styles' until the next wash.
This is my staple product, with consistent results, but I now have a new favourite, which I will review shortly - Curls Whipped Cream.
