I love love LOVE this product line. I first did two strand twists on damp hair (I dampened with a water bottle) using the RockOUT Butter and then applied the RockTHERAPY Oil to the scalp and wore the twists for two days before doing a twist out.
The twistout lasted three days and could have lasted even longer but I was dying to try the RockLOC Butter. But first, here are pics of the resulting twistout puff:
As I said, I was dying to try the RockLOC Butter. First off let me show you how amazing this stuff melts. The consistency is somewhat thick yet still soft, I rubbed in my hands maybe twice and it melted immediately!
The creator of the line had used a flat twisting style that I had never seen (she saw it on YT) and so I figured I'd give it a try and I'm so glad I did. I freshly cowashed my hair and lightly towel dried it. As I did each flat twist, I used roller clips to hold in place while it dried into set:
Then after setting it, I wrapped it up and went to bed. The next morning (as always with this line) I used the RockSTAR Oil to untwist. The definition I got was crazy. There was no frizziness, it was soft, well moisturized, and extremely shiny:
