Curl Moisture Cream
Cost
$18 for 8oz

Where to Buy
www.obianaturals.com or Amazon

Active Ingredients
  • Water
  • Behentrimonium Methosulfate: Gentle surfactant made from non-GMO rapeseed (canola oil), and is one of the mildest detangling ingredients out there. It doesn't cause buildup or irritation to the scalp.
  • Cetearyl Alcohol: Considered "fatty alchol" -- NOT to be confused with drying alcohols such as ethyl. Acts as a lubricant, thickener, and emollient. Gives conditioner its velvety feel without making hair greasy. Also used to keep product ingredients from separating. 
  • Grapeseed Oil: Pressed oil from the seeds of grapes, high in Vitamin E and linoleic acid. It is an antioxidant, moisturizing, and nourishing oil.
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Vegetable-based humectant that absorbs and retains moisture from the air.
  • Olive Oil: Olive Oil is rich in high levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which is good for hair growth. Both mono-unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E are good for moisturizing, protecting and nourishing hair. Olive oil makes hair grow stronger and its emollient properties prevent hair loss.
Protein Free?
Yes!

Curly Girl Friendly?

The Good
Can I just say that Curl Moisture Cream is life?! I hadn't tried Curl Moisture Cream prior to this review, and honestly, I was slippin'. Curl Moisture Cream is actually Obia's leave-in conditioner, and performs beautifully as such. I always say, if your leave-in conditioner isn't moisturizing, detangling, reducing frizz, adding hydration, and setting the canvas for a great style, then you need a new leave-in. Curl Moisture Cream does that and then some! It pairs beautifully with Twist Whip Butter and Curl Enhancing Custard - leaving no flakes, residue, or goopy weirdness. It's incredibly moisturizing without weighing the hair down or making it feel greasy. It has great slip, is super rich and velvety, and best of all - a little bit goes a long way.

The Bad
Seriously, nothing. Curl Moisture Cream is flawless. I even love the fact that it comes in a jar instead of a bottle with a pump - because you can get every last drop of product out.

The Bottom Line
If your leave-in is leaving much to be desired, definitely give Curl Moisture Cream a try! It's heavier than your traditional leave-in, but lighter than a butter cream. It's a dry-haired naturalista's dream!

Would I Buy it Again?
So....at this point I need to ask. Who got the coupon code, tho? Because ya girl needs to place an order with Obia. #hookmeup #illloveyouforever


Twist Whip Butter
Cost
$18 for 8oz

Where to Buy
www.obianaturals.com or Amazon

Active Ingredients
  • Water with Extracts of Aloe Vera, Lavender, and Lemongrass: Provides natural fragrance while balancing pH, smoothing the cuticle layer of the hair, and providing antimicrobial properties for the hair and scalp. 
  • Shea Butter: Emollient fat from the nut of the East or West African shea nut tree used to moisturize and soften hair.
  • Palm Oil: Oil of the palm fruit full of vitamins A and E, as well as beta carotene which gives it a yellowish-orange color. The high antioxidant content reduces the signs of damage and aging in hair, while moisturizing intensely and improving shine and elasticity. 
  • Vegetable Glycerin: Vegetable-based humectant that absorbs and retains moisture from the air.
  • Castor Oil: Thick, highly viscous oil with antibacterial, antifungal, and humectant properties. It is also a great moisture sealant, and promotes hair thickening and growth.
  • Behentrimonium Methosulfate: Gentle surfactant made from non-GMO rapeseed (canola oil), and is one of the mildest detangling ingredients out there. It doesn't cause buildup or irritation to the scalp.
Protein Free?
Yes!

Curly Girl Friendly?

The Good
New kid on the block alert! Honestly, of all the Obia Naturals products, I was most hesitant to try this one. Like, what does someone like me, a wash and go loyalist, do with twisting butter? Like, how do I use this? HOW SWAY? As it turns out (and you'll see in a video verrrrry soon...like tomorrow soon), Twist Whip Butter is pretty damn much foolproof. I say foolproof because I broke every rule of the twist/braidout/perm rod manual and got epic results. Like seriously, look:

Review & Demo: Obia Naturals Part II (Curl Moisture Cream, Twist Whip Butter & Curl Enhancing Custard)

My hair wasn't 100% dry when I took it down. I didn't put oil on my hands during the takedown, and I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to unravel the rods like I did, but by the end result, you can't tell! Quiet as kept, I didn't even protect my hair properly at night, and my braid and curl still lasted for 3+ days. Like, if you don't know how to do your hair, but want it to come out like the girls in the YouTube videos, use Twist Whip Butter. Mega moisture, definition, shine, and softness without a weird tacky feeling, flaking, or product buildup.

The Bad
Umm...did you read the part about how I don't know how to do my hair, but still got amazing results? Yeah, alladat.

The Bottom Line
Get. You. Some. Twist. Whip. Butter. (Just imagine me clapping with each word.)

Would I Buy it Again?
Get. Me. Some. Twist. Whip. Butter. (I really was clapping as I read this back out loud.)

:::clears throat:::

Love,
Ever since the first moment I spoke your name, 
From then on I knew, 
That by you, 
Being in my life, 
Things were destined to chaaaaaaaange
'Cause Love.....

Sorry, I had to go a lil' Musiq Soulchild circa Y2K on y'all... cuz umm.... the love affair with Curl Enhancing Custard is real. It's been real. It's always gon' be real. We got that real love, that dark skinned Aunt Viv love, that Jada and that Will love... See? You know a product is amazing when the only way you can talk about it is through song lyrics. I just feel like Curl Enhancing Custard gets me. Like Obia, did you formulate this just for me, or nah?

I'm a gel kinda girl, and a heavy one at that. I like thick, jelly gells. Preferably with carbomer (I find that to be the one unifying ingredient in all gels that give me plump curls). Curl Enhancing Custard is thick, (but not as thick as Eco Styler) and elongates the curls as you apply the product. But when those curls are dry, it's a thing of beauty. Shiny, juicy, plump curls that last for days... and lately, I can't get those kinds of results with Eco Styler (leading me to my huge revelation in the video...you did watch, right?) I mean, I could go on and on about Curl Enhancing Custard if you let me. But I won't. So let me just sum it up in a few words (pardon the language):

Curl Enhancing Custard is the shit.

The Bad
Other than the fact that the jar doesn't come in lifetime supply size, I can't think of a single thing wrong with it. I mean, are you really prepared to argue with results like these?

The Bottom Line
I refer you to the picture above. 'Nuff said.

Would I Buy it Again?
Listen, Linda. I don't even need a coupon code for this one. I'm ordering. Regardless. Just like I have for the past what, three years? Cuz baby you my everything, you all I ever wanted...
