So yea, I had a perfectly good twist out going on, but I was bored and also itching to try out the products that I’d bought. So, I said goodbye to 2nd day hair and my experiment began.

I started with Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Mist because it’s the one that I have the least expectations for. I just don’t understand its purpose. That being said, this product is all of the things that I love about Shea Moisture products – the Certified Organic ingredients and it’s all natural. There’s no guessing what exactly I’m putting in my hair. It has a slightly milky color and it smells awesome – it has a light, candy-flavored scent that isn’t overwhelming at all.

I sectioned my hair off, being careful not to disturb the curl definition too much. My hope is if this product doesn’t do much for my hair, I can still have somewhat of a decent style in the end. I spritzed my hair lightly, sealed with Elasta QP Mango Lime Curling Pudding, and two strand twisted. I did the twists larger this time as I’m not really a fan of the tiny, spiraly curls. I then lightly misted my hair again and pinned the twists for some stretch.

Now, the directions state to apply this product to damp hair. Obviously, I didn’t do that. I mean, why? What’s the point in that if this product is intended to moisturize?!?! Otherwise, I could just use water. :-/ It does also state to spray on dry hair to refresh style.

My first impressions of this product is that it has a wonderful smell. I’m not expecting it to linger in my hair, but it would be nice if it does. It did feel a bit sticky in my hair but, not so much so to cause concern at the moment. My hair feels soft. Since I didn’t drench my hair with it, my hair seems to be drying rather quickly. I will leave the twists in for a few hours before I unravel. Then I will update.
