As I Am Hydration Elation Intensive Conditioner

Sep 17, 2012 - I didn't see the point of this product. I have the sample kit of the As I Am products and I used this after using the Coconut CoWash and it seemed to do nothing for my hair. My hair wasn't anymore hydrated or moisturized after the cowash than usual. I have a 4a hair styled in a TWA.

As I Am Twist Defining Cream

Sep 17, 2012 - This product works extremely well. I used it on my 13 year old daughters 4a, shoulder length hair. Her hair is generally styled in 2 strand twists due to the amount of shrinkage and frizz she gets. With this product I was able to style her hair in a twist out and it never frizzed or swelled. Her twists were soft, shiny, and extremely defined ALL day! This is certainly a product worth the $22 for the 16oz jar. Love, love, love it. You don't need a lot of the product on the hair to get the best results.

As I Am Curling Jelly Coil and Curl Definer

Sep 17, 2012 - BOO! to this product. I knew I was in trouble when the instructions said not to touch hair until it dries. I applied a moderate amount of this product to my saturated hair after using the leave in conditioner. It went on to my TWA like a lotion and my curls began to start coiling immediately. The problem came in that I had that product on my hair with that white film for over 2 hours. It took forever to dissolve into my hair and when it finally did (3 hrs later) my hair was hard and crunchy. I hated this product and will never use it again. Nothing should take that long to dry on hair that's 2 inches long and to make your hair feel like paper...yuck. I had to wash that out of my hair and start all over. I have 4a hair and newly natural since my BC on 6/29/12.
