Natural Hair Product Review - Koils By Nature Product Line

After watching a very positive review by one of my favorite Youtubers Dawnyele, I decided to try out this next product on my twistout.

Company:  Koils by Nature
Products Purchased:  Eucalyptus and Lavender Sample Pack (includes 2 oz samples Hydrating Shealoe Conditioner, Shealoe Leave in conditioner, Nourishing Hair & Body Butter in Marvelous Mango & Herbal Gel in Eucalyptus & Lavender)  - I got a free upgrade on my Hair Butter to 4 oz...thanks Pam!
Cost:  $20.00
Shipping:  This is a small company so it took a week for my products to arrive.  No biggie.
Side Note - I love the packaging of these products.  I know it's a little thing but the containers are durable and easy to get the product out of.  The labels were created with a laser color printer.  This is important to me b/c the hydrating conditioner and the leave in are in the same size bottle so if the label blurred or came off it might be hard for me to be able to tell the difference between the two if I were in a rush.  


Herbal Gel
I used the Shealoe conditioner as my detangling conditioner.  It has medium slip & did a good job of detangling my hair.  I loved the Shealoe leave in however.  It's a thicker consistency and I only needed a little.  I was able to smooth it and comb through my hair easily.  On top of that I added the butter to seal in the moisture before I added the Herbal Gel.  The butter easily smoothed on my hair as well and left my hair feeling soft.  (SN:  I also use it after my shower on my body and it keeps my skin moisturized all night long!)  Then I added the gel.  OK, so for all my Ecostyler users, don't be alarmed.  I know you're used to the thick consistency of that gel.  This gel is watery and very thin.  I only used a little on each twist.  Initially I was little concerned about whether this would hold my 4b/4c hair.  After I twisted my hair I checked one in the back that was almost dry and was pleasantly surprised when I saw the definition forming.  So I twisted it back up.....

Check out the photo montage below of the results.  Let me just say that I have found my staple twist out product.  My hair was super defined, was soft, and had movement all week!  I did not have to reapply product.   I got 7 days out of this twist out!  I could have gotten more but I needed to protect my hair so that it wouldn't constantly be exposed to the colder weather that we're having.  It was also rubbing against my turtleneck and scarves in the back...HUGE no-no.

Here is a comparison shot between my 1st twist out in January 2011 & the one from this week.

    The definition from those products was awesome.

  2. Thanks! I am so proud of the growth I've achieved. I'll do an official length check in the next couple of weeks!
