What I love about my hair is that defines gravity and laws of physics. Once you create a bond with your hair and religiously take care of it, you get to know what does and doesn't work for your strands. Every hair is different. 
I discovered that if I want to obtain a defined and shiny mane, I need to apply some type of defining hair products on soaking wet hair. Since is fairly tiresome to find the holy grail products who will give you the right results, I compiled a personal short list of 3 products that do wonders for your hair.

I've had this product since forever and it was probably my first defining custard. The consistency is fairly smooth so it is really easy to apply. The Define & Shine Custard reduces hair bulk, elongates curls and provides enough hold for long lasting styles that stay. perfect to be use for twist or braid outs. I do like to add few drops of argan or castor oil to it before braiding my hair just to give it an extra help and extra shine.

The thought of having to make my own aloe vera gel always intrigued me but I never got the chance to actually do it because of my busy schedule. Aloe vera gel does great things to afro hair by moisturising it, making them soft and shiny. If you don't want have time to make your own aloe vera gel and want an organic alternative, Seven Minerals got you covered boo! 
The texture of this product is a mixture between being liquidy and lumpy since is a natural gel. I do love to use this gel with my trusty Tangle Teezer to create the perfect Wash & Go.

Last but not least, is the Coil Defining Jelly by As I Am. I am obsessed with this brand ever since I tried the Leave in Conditioner. After few trials, I do believe that I have the best results if my hair are not completely wet. Blotting my hair with a t-shirt first always gives me better results. 
The texture is really smooth, a little goes a long way and the smell is fantastic.
