I’ve had my flexirod updo for about a week and although it took forever and a day to achieve, this protective style is super easy to maintain even through working out! I noticed with my last sew-in that my hair seemed drier than usual despite consistent spraying with two moisturizing products: ApHogee Curlific Moisture Rich Leave-In Conditioner (review forthcoming) and Bee Mine Juicy Spritz. Normally my hair feels soft, moisturized and strong upon take-down because I am pretty good with following my weave care regimen but not this time. I think it could have been a combination of the ApHogee spray (which I do NOT like) and my hair needing something heavier than the Bee Mine spritz. So, I recently purchased two of the new Jane Carter Solution products I’ve had my eye on for a while: Moisture Mist and Seal & Shine, which are designed to hydrate hair and seal in moisture.
According to their website, Jane Carter offers three different water based sprays for different hair types:
- Revitalizing Leave In Conditioner |lightest| fine/medium hair.
- Quench |moderately light| medium/coarse hair
- Moisture Mist |heaviest| medium/coarse hair
I love the Jane Carter leave in conditioner so when the Quench and Moisture Mist were released last year, I was immediately intrigued. Now that my hair seems to be demanding something heavier with a bit more moisturizing power, it was the perfect time to try the Moisture Mist; My hair certainly falls into the ‘coarse’ category and can absolutely withstand heavier products, especially while protective styling.
So, to maintain my updo protective style all I do is clip the sides up and cover with a bonnet at night. In the morning, I fluff the curls, spray with the Moisture Mist and seal with Seal & Shine. If my hair is feeling particularly dry, I spray again at night. The end! My hair is feeling amaaaaaaaazing! This style is so easy and low maintenance, plus it involves zero manipulation!
I will be doing a full review on these Jane Carter Solution products soon. LOVING THEM so far! I’ll be re-setting the middle section only this weekend, the braids still look great!
