During my visit to The Natural Hair Week a few weeks ago I happened upon the Motions stand a while having a natter with the staff.
I have been aware of motions for some time but I had never really tried any of their products, however the company has re-branded and launched a Natural textural textures range, which contains a heat styling range and a Natural textures range.
During our convo I mentioned to one of the consultants that I would be taking down my box braids, washing and deep conditioning my hair and how I was not looking forward to it. One of the consultants then introduced me to this little gem:
Pre-wash Detangling Butter
which is one of the newest products in the Motions Natural Textures range.
I was instructed to me to gently finger comb my hair then apply the product to the hair wait 15 minutes then comb out.
I think I can handle that.
As Motions were selling four products for £10 I decided to treat my hair to the following:
Instead of going straight home after the event to rake out my braids and properly sort out my hair I ended up going out for dinner and drinks and rolled into my house around 10pm leaving me little time for me to take out my braids, wash and deep condition my hair as I had an appointment with a hairdresser to get my hair Crochet braided at 12pm the following day.
Once I took out the braids it was dumb late so unfortunately I wasn’t in a place to vogue and take pictures :(
As instructed I finger detangled my hair then I added the Pre-wash Detangling Butter massaging it into my hair then I left it for 15 mins then combed in sections with a wide tooth comb starting from the ends and working my up to the roots.
The product was creamy and had a lovely smell to it and I found it worked really well to detangle my tresses.
All I can say is wow! Combing out my hair after taking out my braids has never been this simple.
I then rinsed my hair and washed it with the Moisturizing Cleanser. It lathered up well and also smelled nice.
As I had my hair in the braided for around 4 weeks previously I was eager to give it a good deep condition.
I found the masque to be quite thin in consistency and I was concerned that I would end up using the whole tub on my hair but I found that a little went quite a long way.
When I applied the masque to my damp hair in sections before combing with a wide tooth comb and platting into a loose braid.
I then covered my hair with a shower cap I then had a hot bath to compensate for not sitting under the dryer.
After getting out of the bath, and putting on my PJ I decided to leave the conditioner in a little bit longer and ended up falling asleep with it in my hair. Not great for my pillows but not the worst thing that could happen.
The following morning when I rinsed out the conditioner my hair felt lovely an my hair soft (moisturised) oh and let me mention that when I applied the masque my curls suddenly popped into cutest tiny ringlets I wish a took a picture.
Again apologies for the lack of photos it was dumb o’clock in the morning.
While my hair was still slightly damp I moisturize and sealed with Creamy Hair Lotion by Cantu and Coconut oil and braid in sections and braided into chunky braids.
