I would definitely recommend this product. It is great for twist outs and braid outs. Unlike a lot of other styling products it doesn't cause the hair to completely shrink, leaving you with a reasonably stretched style. It gives a medium hold, keeping reasonable definition for 2-3 days without resetting the style. After application, I did not need to moisturise my hair for 3 days, as opposed to every day/ every other day. The pudding also gives amazing shine. That being said it does have its drawbacks, it is quite greasy. If you rested your head against a window, chances are your hair would leave a mark. It also builds up quite easily on the hair, getting to the stage where your hair needs washing. However, this can be easily worked around. My suggestion would be to use the product to set twists as a protective style, take them out wear a twist out for a few days; or you could do a twist out on dry hair and then wash soon after. For those of you that are conscious about ingredients, mineral oil is present... Admittedly this made me hesitant to purchase the pudding for a few months but I wasn't put off nor do I have any regrets.  I paid £2.69 for 16.2 oz. from my local hair and beauty shop, which is a great price. Would I buy again, Definitely!


  1. Thanks so much for this review. I have seen this product before, but never bought it because of the mineral oil, I thought it was going to weight the hair down. I will give it a try.

    1. No Problem, always happy to help. It definitely useful, I used it yesterday as a substitute for gel so lay my hair. Let me know how it works for you.
