These are twists using Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I simply parted their hair and twisted it for them to do a twist out. Curl Enhancing Smoothie is so thick and creamy that is smoothes (is that the right word?) the hair cuticles down and gives the hair sealed moisture and shine. I love this stuff and I really enjoy using it for twists of hair with THICK COURSE CURLY HAIR TYPES (what I consider type 3’s and 4’s). I am very happy with the cost as well as what it does to the hair. This is a natural must have!
