I am really loving the Taliah Waajid products. The Taliah Waajid Lock It Up gel is really helping to add moisture for protective styling (buns and twists). I use it alone when I want to add hold to twists or a twist out. When bunning, I add 1 teaspoon each of the Taliah Waajid African Healing Oyl and castor oil to half a jar (3 oz.) of the Lock It Up gel. This mixture provides light hold, shine, moisture, and softness to my hair.
I co-washed with Taliah Waajid Herbal Enhancing conditioner, then applied my shea butter mix to damp hair. I then sealed hair with the Lock It Up gel mixture before bunning.
**NOTE: For the naturals with fine hair seeking products that help to thicken hair, especially mature naturals, amla powder is the truth. These are my chunky twists I put in at bedtime in-between protective styling. Amla has definitely helped to thicken my hair. I purchase my amla from AyurNatural Beauty. Great prices and fast shipping.
