Ohhhh I’ve been keeping a secret from you gals!
I’ve been using this FABULOUS product from Naturalista Cosmetics & now its time to share my results (& my friend’s too) with you :)
I’ve been hearing so many GREAT things about the Juicy Leave – in so I started to research the company Naturalista Cosmetics & found out that the company is based out of Washington, D.C. This was a super plus for me :) I then got in contact with the CEO/Founder Padrica Norfleet who was so kind to send me a FULL size container for review.
I decided to use the leave-in on myself as well as my friend who has a completely different hair texture than I; this way you can see how the product reacts on different textures or curl patterns.
Product: Naturalista Cosmetics Juicy Leave in Conditioner
Purpose: Repairs, conditions and leaves hair healthy vibrant, hydrated & strong. Juicy is a light, easily absorbed formula that is an excellent daily moisturizer for relaxed, tinted, dyed and chemically treated.
Application Method: Apply a small amount to freshly washed & detangled hair before styling. Use sparingly and do not over use, a little goes a long way.
Here is the inside of the container; please note that I’ve been using the conditioner & that when it came to me it was full to the brim!
This product smells A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I had to keep my husband away from it while I twisted my hair; the smell is sweet yet not overwhelming.
There was also a set of application instructions, a note from Naturalista Cosmetics and a business card from owner Padrica Norfleet complete with contact information.
Really nice touch!
How I used the product: I first steamed my hair with my Huetiful Steamer…okay will it’s not mine it’s my mom’s but we keep it all in the family ’round here! LOL :)
I then twisted my hair in the back and on both sides; I flat twisted the top because the baby had a date with his Pop Pop :) I only used a dime size amount of the product on each detangled section. I recommend you rubbing the product in your hands before applying it to your tresses this way it will glide right on.
I left the twists in from Sunday to Tuesday morning, I even worked out with them on Monday morning too. After my hair dried from the sweat the twists bounced right back! Another plus :)
Today I took my twists apart for a twist out & was amazed that my hair was still moisturized to the MAX. When I took my twists down I just used some oil by Imani-Joy Naturals to help avoid frizz which is inevitable with my hair especially since I’ve added color.
Here are the results:

I’m loving the waves & definition…
Here is the final look after I took my twists apart a bit:
I pinned the sides up because it was HOT in the DMV today plus I don’t really like my sides down unless I stretch my hair.
A few weeks prior when I initially was working on this review I invited my friend, Shanyon, over to use the product on her hair as well. I wanted to see how the Juicy Leave in Conditioner would work in someone else’s hair with a different texture. Check it out:
Freshly Washed Hair
I then twisted her hair in the back & flat twisted the top….
She took her twists down after four days to render these results….
I’m so in love with this product! My hair felt extremely soft & moisturized; my twist out was really defined with deep waves! I would definitely purchase this product once I run out. My friend, Shanyon, told me that she has NEVER experienced a twist-out like this before!!!
