Hey there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading it. I hope this review is informative and entertaining, but most of all I hope it empowers and enables you with the insight you need to make the right choice. This post is not sponsored by TextureId. This was an investment that I made and all opinions expressed are strictly my own. So a few months ago, I saw a post by @exotik_roots via her instastory about this product. I was quite intrigued by her comments. So a month ago when I saw this product at Sally’s Beauty Supply I thought why not try it. The price is comparable to what I normally spend on hair products and the ingredients are typically what I tend to lean towards, so I took a chance and bought them.
For those of you who know me, I am all about healthy hair care with minimal products. I don’t believe in using a lot of products for optimal hair health for myself and my daughter. Despite, the fact that we have different hair journeys, curls are curls and require the respect and care necessary to flourish. Besides I do not want my daughter believing the lie that she needs a closet full of hair oils, butters, leave ins and creams to perfect a decent twist out. That’s not smart economically or functionally.
Side note: Shout out @iamblackgirlcurls for providing the information necessary to make smart financial decisions in regards to our natural curls without the propaganda that is out there. Now back to the review.
I have used TextureID Intense Moisturizing Leave In Conditioner and Styling Creme together and individually freshly washed and conditioned hair, to really assess the products’ quality.
The TextureID Intense Moisturizing Leave In Conditioner retails for $8.99 US. According to Sallys’s here is a list of what you can expect.
“Improves wet and dry combing while helping hair retain moisture and softness
Helps fight frizz caused by humidity
Ideal for curly to coily hairy types
Lightweight spray conditioner
A soothing balance of Aloe Vera Extract and Coconut Oil helps hair retain moisture and softness while sealing the cuticle layer to help block-out humidity-causing frizz. Honey, a natural emollient, added to nurture hair follicles and promote healthy growth.”
The TextureID Styling Creme retails for $8.99 US. This is what Sally’s website claims it will do for you,
“Medium hold for curls that need extra control and conditioning
Provides superb curl definition and frizz protection
Ideal for curls and coils
Ideal for curls that need extra control and conditioning. This ultra-rich whipped crème is enhanced with Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, & Wheat protein to provide superb curl definition and frizz protection. Great for twist outs, rod sets and protective styles.”
I find that Texture ID Intense Moisturizing Leave In Conditioner is in fact a really good lightweight moisturizing leave in conditioner. I love that it comes with a spray which makes it easy to dispense. It is a liquid leave in conditioner which is different from what I typically use. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually I needed to get the moisture into my curls. I paired it with the Texture ID Styling Cream for a twistout and I loved how my hair came out.
Every curl was defined, shiny and soft without the heaviness of butters or the crunchiness of hair gels. I’ve never been able to have this kind of curl definition.
This was what I’ve been looking for without sacrificing or compromising the health of my hair.
I used this combo also on my daughter’s protective hair style (click here if you want to see how I do her hair). When I undid her hair, I got exactly the same results. Her hair was soft, shiny and easy to finger detangle.
The only thing that worried me is when I used the Styling Creme with other leave in conditioners, it would flake. The last time I experienced flaking I had to throw away the product, but I decided to wait and see.
The flakes are minimal and do go away. So I’m not sure if the cream takes awhile to mix with others but it does work well with other leave in. It provides medium hold like it says and it really acts like a sealant. I personally wouldn’t use it on its own to moisturize and style, however I would use it alongside the Texture ID leave in conditioner for optimal results.
I hope this review helps. Let me know what you think. Have you used this before? What did you think of it?
