When it comes to my natural hair, I love doing twist and braided styles. The fact that there is so much versatility within a twist or braid out makes it the best choice for me when I want it to last.
A key factor in getting the perfect twist or braid out is ensuring that you are using great products. For me, an oil-based gel and a good cream styler are mandatory.
If you’re having trouble selecting a cream based styler, check out the list below!
1. Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter
This product gets a lot of hype and it’s totally worth it. If you’re looking for a thick product this definitely has the consistency you want. You can use it on wet or dry hair, but I find that it works best on dry hair with or without the addition of gel.
Though it’s on a bit of the pricier side, a little goes a long way and will keep your curls flourishing with luster that lasts until your next wash day.
2. Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
I often refer to this product as one of the OG’s of natural hair products. It was among the first really popular natural hair products on the market.
The consistency is similar to that of a smoothie and it smells absolutely amazing. Definitely great for adding moisture and shine.
3. Cantu Coconut Curling Cream
This thick but creamy styler smells really yummy and has the power to transform your tresses that are prone to drying and breakage. Your curls will be left moisturized and a little goes along way.
4. Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Styling Cream
This styling cream is perfect for travel as it comes packaged in a convenient squeeze bottle. It’s lightly scented and is great for minimizing frizz and deeply moisturizing your strands.
5. Creme of Nature Pudding Perfection
The first thing you’ll notice about this product is the amazing smell. It has a really creamy consistency that is not thick so it’s perfect for those with fine hair who want to use a creamy product without the weight. It’s great for those who desire curl definition and can be used with or without gel.
