Natural hair is great in it’s versatility, from ultra short curly fro to mid back length sleek tresses in a couple of hours. But us curly girls know that the results of flat ironing our curls and kinks only lasts a couple of days (or a couple of hours for some of us). And truth be told, the reason why many of us don’t bother, aside from being in love with our natural texture of course, is because knowing the amount of effort it takes to straighten our hair, the too quick reversion and risk of heat damage means that the payoff isn’t worth it.
I tend not to pay attention to product reviews unless it’s a product that I am looking to purchase. So when these reviews made an appearance in my Youtube feed, I was totally about to ignore them when I noticed that it was one of my favorite vloggers MoKnowsHair who was reviewing the product. Shortly later I came across Chime’s (Haircrush) video also reviewing the Beautiful Textures TMS system so of course I had no choice but to grab that dangling carrot and watch the videos.
In essence the texture manageability system serves to give us a solution mainly to keeping our straightened hair straight for longer. It allows naturals to flat iron their hair and wear it straight for longer without reversion through rain, humidity and workouts and the system is designed to stay in your hair for up to six weeks. When you want your natural texture back, all you have to do is wash your hair with the a clarifying shampoo after which the hair snaps back to its original curl pattern.
I know what you are thinking, how is this different from the Braziilan Keratin Treatments we have all heard about? Well, without stepping on the toes of Mo who will explain all to you, although this treatment contains keratin amino acids they only bind with the temporary salt bonds in your hair which means that there is no permanent change in your hair texture as a result of using the system.
Below, Mo Knows Hair shows us the results of the system on her 3a hair after which she had full reversion of her curls. Next she did the treatment on her friend with 4a hair and a week and a half later her friend came back for a wash and although I personally see that her naturally tight curls look slightly different, for the most part, they sprung back into place.
