Review: I applied a little Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer to A's dry, detangled hair. This product had a nice, light scent It was very fluffy, it reminded me of whipped cream. It went in A's hair so smoothly, and left her hair soft and moisturized.

Review: After sectioning off about half of A's hair, I started to do small, loose cornrows on one side. I applied a little more Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer to each section, then I applied Bee Hold Curly Butter to each section. The combination of the two was so lovely! The Bee Hold Curly Butter clumped the three strands of hair I was cornrowing together, so it made the cornrowing process very easy. My fingers slid down each section very easily. Her hair was well moisturized, and while I made the cornrows loose for our protective styling challenge, they still had great hold. When I got to the end of each cornrow I started doing the two strand sister twist method. This is when you twist one section clockwise, and the other counter clockwise, then you start twisting around one another. Her twists felt amazing and looked amazing! This product was nice and creamy, a thick consistency, but not too thick. The Curly Butter smelled like baby powder, A liked the smell, it was nice. Scents available: Coconut Cream, Unscented, Island Mango (Tropical Mango)

Juicy Moisturizing Daily Spritz

The Claim: Bee Mine Juicy - Moisturizing Daily Spritz is an excellent moisturizer for natural & relaxed hair. It is loaded with organic aloe vera juice, ayurvedic herbs and nourishing essential oils to stimulate the scalp and strengthen your tresses. Use daily as a mid day refresher bedtime moisturizing treatment.

Review: Love Juicy Moisturizing Daily Spritz! I sprayed her hair with this after her style was complete, it added shine, and moisturized her hair even more. The smell (Island Mango) is amazing! I love the smell so much that I put off washing my hands for a little while because they smelled so nice, lol. Don't judge me! :P

This combination together is just amazing! If you're a Facebook friend then you saw my status, and I quote, "Bee Mine, where have you been all my life?!" I have not yet met a product that works so well on her hair style. Her cornrows and twist have great hold, they are super moisturized and soft, her hair smells great, what more could I ask for? This was another one of those times where I liked the product so much, that I immediately went on Facebook and in the CurlyNikki forum to post about it. I really think I have found the perfect twisting product. I would love to see how the Curly Butter works on defining her curls, because like I said, when I was cornrowing the product was really clumping the sections together for me.

If you would like to purchase Bee Mine products, check out their website! They also sell samples.

  6. This sounds great!!! I'd love to try this to braid my youngest sons hair. I can't find much of anything to create that 'stick together' method, cause his hair is soo fine and slippery, everything slides right out. Thanks for this review! I'm excited about it!!

    This style is GREAT!!!! I love it!

  11. I love the BeeMine products! I have the sulfur oil as well, it's great on the scalp and I love all of the fragrances. Goodness, I see you're posting stuff I didn't know they had...I'm almost out, so I may need to pick up some new things, lol. I agree it works really well on twists, etc. I love the consistency of the butter.

  12. Beautiful. I would love to try those on my boys. Have anyone noticed the all natural products are a little bit expensive... I guess you pay for what you get is a true statement.

  17. I just received my sample sizes of these 3 products. Fist let me say....love the size of the samples. Definitely bigger than other sample products I've ordered in the past! Enough to really use for a while to get a sense of how they'll work over time! Now as far as the products...I was soooo eager to use them, I grabbed a section of my daughter's hair right away and first gave them a spritz, applied the moisturizer and then the butter. OMG!!! I've been using Curls or Blended Beauty in the past but nothing has made her hair as soft, shiny and moisturized as this!! And her curl pattern just seemed to pop! And this quick test wasn't on freshly washed hair but boy did I see a difference! I think I can retire the product junkie title for a good while. My credit card and my husband thank you! :-)

  20. I gotta try the curly butter, with mango island smell.
    It sound amazing, and i can imagine how nice the smell is.
    I love fruity smells, like kinky-curlys smell, soo.
    I would like to try the other products to, but it is so exspensive for me to ship to Denmark, from USA. :)
