The Claim: Braid & Twist Styling Cream Our Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream is excellent for braiding, twisting and adding much needed moisture to dry, coarse curls:) This is a very thick and concentrated cream that is highly moisturizing and softening for type 3-4 coarse hair types. It is a very thick milky white cream and is scented with Ylang Ylang and Lemon! Once you try it, you’ll be hooked!

The Ingredients Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Distilled Water, Avocado Oil, Organic Sustainable Palm Oil, Vegetable Emulsifying Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Panthenol, Botanical Oil Complex, Wildflower Honey, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol, Ylang Ylang, and Lemon Essential Oils.

The Results I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I used it to create double-strand twists on my 10-year-old’s 4B-type hair. It had no distinct scent to it (scents can be overpowering and/or offputting). It was also a nice consistency, not as thick as a gel but not as watery as most leave-in conditioners. A little goes a long way. You simply rub a small dab between your palms and apply to the hair. The results were perfect, for a kid her age especially. Just a little bit of hold… just a little bit of sheen… very natural looking as opposed to stiff/done up.

In my opinion, a little too light to use on my 3c/4a textured locs. A more cost-effective light-hold product would be pure aloe vera gel.
