Review: Koils by Nature (Sample Pack)

Last night when I got home, my Koils by Nature order had arrived. Perfect timing, since I was planning on washing my hair anyway and trying that oil rinse out. I ordered the sample pack (Soothing Herbal Eucalyptus and Lavender) since this was my first time trying this line of products. The sample pack contained the following:
  • 2oz – Moisturizing Shaeloe Leave In Conditioner
  • 2oz – Hydrating Shealoe Creamy Conditioner
  • 2oz – Nourishing Hair & Body Butter (of your choice)
  • 2oz – Soothing Herbal Gel (of your choice)
It comes wrapped in a pretty organza bag. 






After my oil rinse (details in my last post), I applied the Hydrating Shealoe Creamy Conditioner and rinsed out with cool water. I towel blotted my hair and applied the Moisturizing Shealoe Leave-In. Both conditioners left my hair feeling soft, had a light, pleasant scent, and my hair was very manageable.

To style, I used the Nourishing Hair & Body Butter and the Soothing Herbal Gel. I got the Hair & Body Butter in Sweet Almond's Joy and OMG this stuff smells AMAZING! I always do two-strand twists for a twist-out (it reduces shrinkage by stretching my hair, keeps it from getting tangled and also helps prevent single strand knots since it also stretches the ends). For each section that I was about to twist, I applied a small amount of the Hair & Body Butter along with a small amount of the Herbal Gel - a little goes a long way! I actually think I was a bit heavy-handed (it smelled so good I wanted to use more than was needed - Lol), so I will use a little less next time. After twisting, I sat under my hooded dryer for about an hour to let the majority of my hair dry. I let the rest air dry overnight.






This morning, I unraveled  the twists and styled. My hair was so soft, very defined and had a very nice sheen. I will be buying the full-size products very soon!

I love the way you styled your hair. Let me be the first to request you do a Youtube vid on how you did it. Looks fabulous.

KeetaRay said...

Thank you, Monique :) I may do an updated video of the twistout I did. I always do them the same way but they NEVER look the same so people think I do different things. LOL Hopefully I can do the vid in a week or so.
