Vanilla-Sun Twurly Butter


Merry Christmas to all my wonderful blog readers!
First thing's first,  this month I have to tell you about a product I was sent by Root 2 Tip.
Despite the fact it's Winter, this product exudes sunshine!

I can't tell you how grateful I was to receive my package from Root 2 Tip. You might remember when I had scalp issues earlier in the year I tried various things but the one product that actually solved the problem was Root 2 Tip's Scalp Hydration Serum. Since then I've had great faith in the Brand.

The package arrived containing Vanilla-Sun Twurly Butter along with a sample of their Olicoco Honey Steam Cream - Deep Conditioner and a mini bottle of the Honey Rain Juice Leave-In Spray....
....Sounds Brilliant, I know! But unfortunately I fell sick so I couldn't try the products until about a week ago. However, during my days being bed bound I was was able to at least smell the products..........

I don't know what to tell you.....A written explanation could NEVER do it justice!

Let's just say, it's a good thing the products are organic or I'd probably be in rehab right now. I repeatedly had my nose in the tubs of Olicoco Honey Steam Cream and the Vanilla-Sun Twurly Butter. Absolutely incredible!
The sort of smells that instantly put a smile on my face, and trigger memories of being on holiday in Jamaica.

I really wish all of you reading this could smell what I'm talking about - the sort of smells that make you forget it's Winter, forget what a cloud looks like, just feel warm and happy. (I must ask Salem if the Steam Cream can be used as a body cream too.)
I love sweet smelling products, and the Twurly Butter smells like a vanilla dessert, and looks like cake mix - absolutely gorgeous. It really does smell edible and since discussing it with some other natural ladies, it turns out I'm not the only one who's been tempted to taste it.

The Honey Rain Juice Leave-In Spray, sank into my hair very quickly but left it feeling very soft. I was a little unsure about using it, as I tend to prefer leave-in creams and have found many spritz and sprays to be a more drying than moisturising, but this is the second spritz I've tried this year that has left my hair feeling very soft - I think I should mention that both have been by British Brands, which makes me feel very proud of our progress.

As recommended, I used the Vanilla-Sun Twurly Butter with the Honey Rain Juice and styled my hair in simple 2-strand twists and here were the results.

I do my twists by spraying an area of hair, then sectioning off 2 strands that
I intend to twist. I then scoop a small amount of the Twurly Butter
and smooth it down the strands, and then twist them.
This product is not yet available in the shops but is definitely set to be a triumph for Root 2 Tip.
It gave my hair brilliant shine and left it feeling very well moisturised but what impressed me most (besides the smell) was that once the product had been absorbed by my hair, not only did my twists feel fabulously soft, they were not greasy at all - It was amazing!
(Once my hair was dry I was actually able to rest my head on my boyfriend's chest with out leaving any oil marks on his new t-shirt.)
I left the twists in for a couple of days before doing a Twist-Out which I was very pleased with.
The best thing about the Twurly Butter is that similarly to gel it sets the curls quickly and gave me great definition but without any of the crunchiness that gels leave with they dry. Next time I'll definitely do a same-day or next-day Twist Out. I don't quite know whether the Twurly Butter can be used for Wash & Go's but I may try it.
Once again I can officially say I'm bowled over by the quality of Salem's work yet again and would definitely recommend Root 2 Tip as a name you can trust for your natural hair needs. So far the products have come to my aid for everything from scalp solutions to styling (and if you ever need a quick boost of happiness just smell the Twurly Butter or Olicoco Cream)
