Last week, my client came in to purchase products, and we were talking about the various uses of butters in the hair. She does twistouts for her daughter and wanted to know why butters tend to lay on the hair in a twistout and if there was a way to get the butter to penetrate. I explained to her that the butter is a sealant for the hair to hold in the layers of moisture underneath. I told her to try some form of heat on the butter to make it smoother on the hair and gave her several sample products to try.
Today, this client came back and told me she used Jane Carter Nourish and Shine to twist her daughter’s hair and she sat under a heating cap for penetration. While she was here, her daughter called to give the results of the twistout. The daughter was on speakerphone raving about her hair and how soft and defined her twists were with the heat from the heating cap and the Nourish and Shine. Even the day after, she said her hair was still very soft and manageable, exactly the result she was looking for.
I will have to try this technique in the salon and post a “how to” to get the best results.
As a cosmetologist, I am always glad to help. ❤ Ally
