Product Review - Curl Prep

Hey Kinkies.  So, I was given a book as a Birthmas gift.  Weird word right?  OK, let me explain... My cousin didn't see me for my birthday in October 2011 so she told me that she's giving me my birthday gift for Christmas... I shrugged, was like okay and just patiently waited for her to say Merry Birthday (she didn't) and hand it over to me.   I was souped to see that it was an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Coif Cuisine, by Candace Kelley.  The weird thing about it is that I was just looking at the email that the same cousin had sent me months prior regarding a meet-up that Candace was going to be at and I wanted to be at but I couldn't make it.  After reading the email again, I planned to go on her website to learn more about her and the book.  So, I read the book, in less than an hour, and learned that she had her own product line.  I reach out to Candace about her products, after looking on her website, and BAM - I have a Curl Prep product (Sweet Buttah) in my hand!  :-) While waiting for the product, a loctician friend of mine mentioned that I should try Sweet Buttah as his client achieved "amazing results" - this sparked my interest even more!!  Come to find out, Sweet Buttah is the most popular product of the Curl Prep line.

What's In Curl Prep's Sweet Buttah?
Shea butter, infused olive oil, wheat germ oil, goat's milk, marshmallow root, emulsified wax, stearic acid, vitamin E, preservatives and essential oils (as per naturallycurly).

What's your first impression of Sweet Buttah Kinky?
I'm going to say that I liked it.  Sweet Buttah is creamy and white, the consistency of custard.  It wasn't too light either, I know some kinkies like a heavier cream.  I liked the results that I got on my dry hair.

I shampooed and deep conditioned my hair, with products not from the Curl Prep line, and let it air dry as I wanted to try Sweet Buttah on dry, stretched out hair.  I had gotten the idea to do it on stretched, detangled hair by watching the Curl Prep instruction video below:

Here is my before picture... how my hair looked before I used Sweet Buttah on it.
I wanted to try a braid out since I had been talking about it on FB page, Kinky Kinetik.  
Here's my transition... 
Here I took out a few braids in the front and wore a headband with braids pulled back into a bun.  I have definition after sleeping overnight for about six hours...
Later that night, I retwisted the front two braids I had taken out... the next morning I woke up and did a braid out for work... here are my fabulous results... first is the back and then the top of my head.
 Smile and say Sweet Buttah!!
 On my daughter's type 3 hair, I also twisted her hair while using Sweet Buttah on dry hair.  
This is one twist unraveled.  
 And here's ALL of her twists unraveled.  I did five twists in all...

I may do an updated pic of me with my hair twisted while wet, using the Sweet Buttah.  I can't wait to see the results of that since my hair was so defined when used on on dry hair.  The pictures above speak for themselves...
