Why I Fell In Love With Donna Marie Lock & Twist Pudding + Pics

 
Beauty By Donna Marie, Lock & Twist Pudding - 8oz - $10.00 
Still on the quest for the perfect ten of puddings and custards, I whipped out the Donna Marie Lock & Twist Pudding last night from my styling arsenal, and began to use it for my twistout. I have to say that I am quite pleased with the results, although I got a ton of shrinkage, my hair is defined, soft, shiny, and has an incredible amount of body.

Prior to twisting, I shampooed my hair with Neutrogena Clarifying Shampoo and followed up with KeraCare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo. I then deep conditioned my hair with Herbal Essence Hello Hydration mixed with a bit of honey for about 30minutes with heat.

I didn't use any secondary stylers with this product, because I wanted to see how it worked on it's own. The only other product I had in my hair was Paul Mitchell The Conditioner which is a leave-in. The consistency of Donna Marie Lock & Twist Pudding is like that of a custard-like product, however it gives you the hold that a gel would, without the residue and "crunchy" feeling. This also keeps your twists from unraveling which plays a major role in definition, and is also great if you wear your hair in two strand twists. I also loved the fact that I could separate the hair as much as I wanted without the frizzy, stiff, undefined look.

My only complaint about this product is it's availability; it took about a month for it to finally become available on the website [it was always sold out], and even now I am unsure as to when she will have more in stock [I don't even see the option to order, but I am sending her an email to get the 411]. Overall I am extremely pleased with this product, and will continue to alternate between this and the Komaza Coconut Hair Pudding.


I did about 20-25 twists all together - Notice the shrinkage, my hair is about neck length here.

  12. Your hair looks great. I'm still transitioning (6 months and counting), but I CAN'T WAIT until I have a head full of thick luscious natural locks like yours. Until then, I will continue to rock my curlformer sets and sock buns. Keep up the good work!

  13. Your hair is amazing! You should post a picture of you in a Facebook page called "Beauté Afro". It's in french but it's all about natural hair and beauty. You could be a true inspiration for ladies who aren't sure about going natural yet. :)

  15. That's the length of my hair and how my hair looks in twistouts with qhemet biologics amla and olive. I stopped using it a year go. Don't like the smell.
    If this shrinks your hair then it's not for me. I've been meaning to try Komaza's cailfia styling pudding but for now I will stick to shea butter. Looking for the perfect product that will give me stretched out twist outs without the use of a blow drier.

  17. wow, this looks beautiful. my hair never comes out right with twist outs. i think it's a consequence of having too wide a variation in the texture? but i really like this.

  18. You are officially my hair idol.. I have a question and or suggestion.. Did you always have thick hair? If not what treatments do you think gave you such full thick hair? I have see thru hair in desperate need of thickness. So far I have tried amla paste without luck.. Thanks in advance.

  20. I just want to know when you do your braid outs and twists out what are the products you use to get define curls,hold the curls and also give it its shine. I am having some difficulties with my curls in the braid out, the curls does not really stay. I moisturize and seal my hair and then braid it, but I need a product that is specifically for defining the curls so it can stay and I am also natural as well.
