Product Packing

Defined Twist with As I Am Twist Defining Cream

The packing was very professional, the colours blended together but there was nothing spectacular about it though. Nothing really stood out, it was functional and different from what is already on the shelves so the achieve their purpose of individuality. Score – 4.5


Smell & Distinction

I am big on smell, to faint it doesn’t work too high and I get a headache. The funny thing is that most products use coconut, vanilla or some herb as their base. There is no difference with AS I AM, they have a creamy vanilla ice cream smell, it does smell really good. Soft, subtle and distinctive at the same time. Most naturals base mark is Cantu products they pretty much coined that distinctive smell competition. Score – 4


Coins to Spend

Now, this is the real reason this product was never bought, the As I Am product, the price. At Fontana Pharmacy it is $2750 JMD, which makes it a proper $13 USD. That is not too bad when you look at the US price, but consider shipping and customs and we are back up to $2750. The best bet order 3 or more products under $50USD and then it will work out, but I digress. on a scale of one to buy, I would say it is not that bad you can buy this. Score – 3

Feel of Product

Feel on hand not so good, it comes off to me oily/greasy. it does have a bit of transfer unto clothes, therefore, wash hands after using. It has a thick creamy base so the feel on your hair will be a bit heavy, it weighs down your twists at first, but when they are dried they are fluffy and very defined. Low Porosity hair will love this product. Score – 4.5

AS I AM for Defined Twist Out

Defined Twist with As I AM Twist Defining Cream

Yes yes and yes! This product does not fail. On my colour treated low porosity hair it defined the twists like a charm. I used a lot of the product my first go around and realise that a little goes a long way because it does take some time to dry. Braid outs took a long time to dry but that is common and they were just as defined. With a total score of 21 points out of 25, this product is BN Approved.
