2 Strands, Flat twists and Amazing Botanicals


Over the holidays I purchased a gift pack for myself from  Amazing Botanicals. I really don’t order hair products online but this company happen to make flaxseed gel and I loves me some flaxseed gel so I had to give them a try. The gift pack included their pumpkin pomade, hibiscus gel and aloe mint spritz.

I was so excited to try these products that right after the mailman dropped off the package I started on my hair. Actually the timing was just right because I had just finished the wash day routine. Also Amazing Botanicals shipping was really fast and the prices are not expensive which is a huge plus in my book.

These twists were created using the pumpkin pomade and hibiscus gel. Twists lasted for about a week and I’m sure they would have lasted longer but if you know me or have been reading this blog for awhile, than you know it is hard for me to go longer than a week with one style.

The pumpkin pomade reminded me of a typical hair grease. In my opinion it is a better option because of the following natural ingredients: babassu oil, pumpkin seed butter, uccuba butter, castor oil, candelilla wax, saw palmetto, bergamont, rosemary, and a botanical blend. This pomade gave my hair a nice shine and only a tiny bit was needed. I applied the pumpkin pomade to dry hair before twisting and applied to ends throughout the week.

Used the hibiscus gel to set twists and to give them hold.  The gel contains distilled water, flaxseed, hibiscus tea infusion, chamomile, aloe gel, optiphen, rosemary, lavender, sunflower, glycerin and xantham gum.

For me this product is a keeper because it’s a flaxseed gel that does not have to be refrigerated and the consistency makes it way easier to use than the flaxseed gel I make at home.Will definitely be ordering more of this product.

Aloe mint spritz is another keeper. It has distilled water and aloe juice infused with marshmallow root, burdock, nettle, horsetail, plantain extract, irish moss and peppermint, behentrimonium methosulfate, cetyl alcohol, shea oil, black castor oil, baobab, wildflower honey, panthenol, meem oil, and rosemary.

It reminds me of my homemade spritz but with way more good stuff. Used the spritz on my scalp and to add a little moisture to twists throughout the week.

If you are interested in using hair products that contain natural ingredients or happen to be a kitchen mixtress and don’t feel like mixing up your own stuff I suggest giving Amazing Botanicals a try.

Until next time…
