Product Review: Urban Therapy Twisted Sista De-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner

It is hard for a newly natural girl to resist becoming a "product junkie" in an effort to find the right products for her hair. I particularly struggle because I am a sucker for cute names and packaging. I am also a sucker for a good 2 for 1 deal so when Urban Therapy Twisted Sistaproducts were on a 2 for 1 sale at Walgreens, I was sure to scoop up this product hailing from the UK. I'm glad that I did.

A lot of products have come and gone since I went natural but these products have stood the test of time in my journey mainly because they have great "slip"; meaning they glide well through my hair. The conditioner in particular has great slip which aids in detangling. I usually leave it on with a plastic cap for a half hour after a deep conditioning masque. When finished, it leaves my hair calm, manageable and with a nice amount of shine. Another thing I like about the conditioner is that it is light enough to co-wash with in the middle of the week. I enjoy co-washing to wash out some of the build up in the middle of the week and to detangle.

I will admit that I originally only purchased the conditioner because until recently I thought that most shampoos were created equal. I spent most of my life using good old Suave shampoo. However after noticing how well my hair reacted to the conditioner, I purchased the shampoo and am very pleased with the results. I have definitely noticed a difference in the definition of my hair since using them together. What I really like about the shampoo is that you really don't have to use a lot to get a good lather and to get your hair clean. I have to say though that the downside is the ingredients. There are a good amount of parabens and sulfates in both products. While the shampoo doesn't seem to be stripping my hair with moisture, I will soon be experimenting with pre-pooing using coconut oil in order to protect my hair from the sulfates.

If you are concerned with frizz and feel like your hair never seems to "calm down" then I definitely suggest this shampoo and conditioner. Remember: a good way to cut down on frizz is to not touch your hair while it is drying. Using a diffuser helps a lot but if you don't have one, air dry. Once you see your curls pop it may be hard to resist touching them but it will be worth it in the end.

  • Pros: Great slip, inexpensive, don't need to use a lot

  • Cons: Ingredients include parabens and sulfates

  • Price- $ ($0-$8)

  • Can be bought at Walgreens and online at
