Tomato, Tomahto - Yes To Tomatoes, Product Review

For some reason, lately no matter how many times I try a twist out on my hair, it ends up looking like a wash & go.  I have watched tutorials, tried multiple products.  I have tried little twists, big twists, every amount of twists, you name it!  It never turns out the way I want it to!  Do I have unreasonable expectations?  Have I just not found the right product for my hair?  What is it?!  Here is what I always envision when twisting. (I found this photo while perusing google!)  Bottom line, I have had no success as of late.  For now, I will stick to my braid outs.

On a more positive note, I did wash and condition my hair the other night and finally got a chance to use Yes To Tomatoes Volumizing Conditioner!  I really like it! 
I wasn’t happy about the $8.99 price tag because I know other people purchased it for only $2.99 at Ross.  We do not have a Ross in Ohio so I really had no choice if I wanted the product.   So here’s how it went!   Before shampooing, I finger - sectioned my hair into four sections and sprayed it with an olive oil/H2O mixture.  I then took a wide tooth comb and detangled each section.  It was not as tangled as I thought it would be!  I then applied Lustrasilk Shea Butter Cholesterol treatment to each section.  This was my first time using this as well.   I left this on with a plastic cap for 3 hours.  I then shampooed my hair in the shower with Trader Joe’s Nourish Shampoo and reached for the Yes to Tomatoes conditioner bottle.  The scent was very subtle but clean.  I applied a generous amount all over my head and then combed it through with my Ouidad detangler.  It was one of the easiest comb through sessions ever.  The comb just glided through so easily!  My hair felt extremely soft and moisturized and didn’t feel weighed down.  I also had a lot of volume, which is the claim on the bottle.  Since I cannot completely attribute the results to the Yes To Tomatoes alone, I will have to use it alone or as a co-wash to see how it truly delivers.  So for now, it was a hit for me!
