*Tomoka's Twist*

I love butterflies!!! Anyone who knows me knows butterfly themed accessories, clothing, and home deco is my thing.

I met Carmen of Tomoka's Twist through Twitter and mentioned that I was looking for some new butterfly jewelry. She immediately got my attention with this baby:

*Safi Hair Care*

Avocado Shea Butter

Alexandra is the founder and creator of Safi Hair Care

I absolutely love this product! I purchased this butter to use on my twist styles because I needed something to give me a nice hold, some definition, and moisturize my hair...this is definitely the stuff!

From Safi Hair Care site:
"This Avocado Shea Hair Butter is a very light and subtle product that can be used on natural hair to style and moisturize.
Ideally this butter can be used to hydrate parched curls and add shine to any style.
It's also a great product to use for twist outs and braid outs.
A little of this handmade hair butter goes a long way."

"INGREDIENTS:

Raw Shea Butter
Pure Avocado Butter
Vitamin E
Peach Kernel Oil
Coconut Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
Organic Aloe Vera Gel
Sodium Lactate (natural preservative)
Fragrance"

This stuff is awesome ladies! I did twists on damp hair and I loved the outcome. Its not oily and my hair was extremely soft and moisturized for days, the definition it gives is amazing.

Curl Clouds

Another great product! I also use this on my twists and currently use it for my bantu knots.
Curl Clouds also leaves my hair soft, moisturized, and gives me great definition. This product smells AMAZING! It's like cake!

From Safi Hair Care Site: "Handmade with the best all natural ingredients.
This light mixture is a great for curl definition, daily moisturize and styling. Curl Clouds can also be used on the body."

"The ingredients include the following:
Raw Shea Butter
Vitamin E
Extracts of Coconut and Hibiscus
Aloe Vera Gel
Sweet Almond Oil
Unrefined Coconut Oil
Honey
Agave Nectar

Curl Clouds feel GREAT, SOFT, AIRY AND FLUFFY."

She is absolutely right! It is a very light and fluffy product that leaves no residue or build up.

Great hold, no frizz!
