UPDATE: Darcy’s Botanical Giveaway – CLOSED

Hey everyone, so I’m excited to start up the giveaways again. I have a lot of things in stored for you all, including EVEN another ipod giveaway. I know! Exciting, right!!!

The giveaway for today is Darcy’s Botanical Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream.

And the WINNER IS…..Oluwakemi

(Update – Thanks to everyone who participated. Please stay tuned for even more fun giveaways! SLY)

This giveaway is sponsored by Sociology of Sheena. I was not provided with any products for free. It’s an 8 oz brand new container. I believe it comes in around $12. I had been trying various creams and pomades to help my twist outs and braid outs last longer while still maintaining their moisture and softness. I had already tried Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey, CURLS Whipped Cream and Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade. They were OK but not as stellar as my much improved Whipped Shea/Cocoa Hair & Body Butter. (I have no clue what I’m going to do with them. The Hair Honey is even gently used! I used it twice.)

Before I started using yet another one, I decided to give it away to someone else. That is where you come in!!!

Leave a comment below on why you want the cream and a random winner will be chosen on Saturday, November 13th. As stated in the video, you must be 18, provide a USA shipping address and you have to leave your comment below. That’s it!

    Hey Sheena! I would like to win the Darcy botanicals avocado and honey cream because after the Afroveda price hike, i’m seriously interested in trying other product lines. (i’m a college student and simply can’t afford her products anymore). Darcy botanicals is on the top of my list for product lines to try.

    Thanks girl,
    This is so kind of you.

  • Teaundra

    Hey SLY! I would love the used items! I’ve been dying to try them especially the burnt sugar pomade and the curls soffle, but I am a graduate student so I didn’t want to buy it incase I didn’t like it…so hopefully I can win at least one of the things you’re giving away!

  • Monica

    Hi! I enjoy watching your vids. I’d like the cream since I’ve heard mixed reviews about it, and I’m always anxious to try a new product. From reviews, it provides great moisture for thick hair.

  • sky

    Wow your products sound really good. I would love to try out this out because I am transitioning and experimenting with different things. It’s also fun trying new products especially when they are of quality ingredients!

  • Nicole

    HI! Love your videos…Our textures are similar so I understand the need to find quality products. Please enter me in your contest.

  • Leni

    I’d love to try the avocado and honey twisting cream because I too wear two strand twists and twist outs and need to find a way to keep my hair from looking dull. Lately, it seems that many of the products that I’ve tried have been light and needed oil added to them.
    I think that there is a site online that does product swaps. If that doesn’t work I’d gladly take them off of your hands :)


  • Shawana YT name yumyum215

  • Tabitha Thompson

    I’d love to win this product because I’m looking for different creams and butters to try on my hair. I started out using gels but hated the crunchy feeling it left and the flakes. I then tried a butter product and my hair was so soft and my twistouts were wonderful. I’ve only used one product and would love to try more butters and creams!

  • Courtney

    Hi Sheena, I am interested in this product because of the avocado and the honey. I have been interested in getting a avocado product to use as an alternative to shea butter. Would love to try it. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Angela Walker

    Hi Sheena! I’ve tried numerous products hoping to end the search for a moisturizer apart from shea butter which I can use as often as my hair needs. I’m still not familiar with my hair and how it changes each season. This product is on my “try it out” list and what better way to try a product out for free. Thanks for the opportunity and inspiring!

  • Lola

  • Lifeisagift1990

    I would love the Darcy’s Botanical Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream. It would make my day to get such a wonderful natural product. I would also let some of my other natural friend try it as well.

    It’s very kind of your to do this giveaway.

  • Tonya

    OMG, I was soo feeling down today. I saw you were being featured on CurlyNikki’s site, read that article(great!) ,then checked out YT watched this and a crappy day just got better. I love giveaways cause I’m broke and can’t afford to try many things that might not work, so the best way I can get stuff is sales and giveaways!!! So if you are ever at a loss as to what to do with something, think of me, lol !!! I love free stuff, Thanks for this 😀

  • Aqueelah

    I have tried other products by Darcy’s Botanicals and have had great results. So this would be a great addition to my collection. Also I have such a problem with frizz with doing twist outs, therefore, I am constantly looking for the better cream. If you should ever purchase from Darcy’s again please try her deep conditioner. It is the best. Peace sis and have a blessed day.

  • Tina Jackson

    Pls enter me in your contest – THANKS!!!

  • Amanda

    I love Darcy’s! I was just raving about how great the leave-in conditioner, coconut and cupuacu butter pomade works on my daughter’s hair. I would love to try this on her hair.

  • Julissa

  • Karyssaryh

    Hey Sly! Enter me!!
    I am an active duty airforce member & I’m 37 weeks pregnant, my faithful curly butter hasn’t been working as it usually does and now I’m hunting for a cream that will keep my twists in for longer with the baby boy on the way and my intense military schedule. I hope I win, thanks for doing this giveaway!

  • Devonee

  • Dione082003

    Enter me Please! Im currently transitioning and I’m on the search for good products….Thanks in advance!

  • Irendi

    Hi Sheena!

    I’ve recently started doing twist-outs on my hair, so I am in search of a product or combo of products that will provide me with day 3 or 4 hair. Much luck to the other entries!!!

  • Penny Cent

    Hello Sheena,

    Just did the “big chop” a few days ago. And, I bought a twist gel for my hair on yesterday of this post. About the Curls Whipped Cream, I would be willing to give it a try even if the container is half full. I don’t believe in letting stuff go to waist. Now, I can take the other product back to the store and get my cash back and put it right back into my piggy back. Afterall, CWC will hold me over for a bit.

    Warm Regards & Paying It Forward :)

  • Nicole Salgado

    I do want to put in an entry for your contest. However, I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your you tube channel. I feel like you have such a positiveness about you that I love. I am a mother of 5 so you tube and my natural hair family is a great get away from the hustle in my home. Hats off. I really appreciate you.

  • Jasmine

    Enter Me
    love trying out new products, especially when they are free 😉

  • Terri

    I hope I when.. I’m on the search for a product that will put moisture in my 4B hair

  • Autrelle

    I would like the product because I am on a quest to find products that work for my hair. I just started doing new stuff with my hair and trying to find something that works for me.

  • Oluwakemi

    Good evening to ya Sheena and ladies. Recently I’ve been wearing many protective styles for hair growth purposes. This twisting cream sounds perfect for me. I must admit that water, shea butter mixtures, carrier oils, and essential oils have saved my hair so trying something new sounds fun.

  • Monia

    Why do I want this cream??? Primarily because I’m finding that as my hair grows (I’ve been officially natural since July 24, 2010), it’s harder to find a product that works well on my hair. I’m a self-proclaimed product junky :-)! I figure in order for me to know what works, I have to buy the product and try it out. Love your blog and YT channel-I hope to be a winner!

  • Terren

    You have such a pleasant spirit, I just recently discovered your channel. Do not wish to compete for the give away. Take care

  • Yolanda McLeod (LondasBookClub)

    Sheena, I would luv to try the product because I am a product junkie and am goin thru trial and error. What might not work for a twist out might work for holding back your edges just enough for a puff. Thanks again, Yolanda

  • Kaiea Rohlehr

    Hi Sheena!

    First I have to tell you that I LOVE your channel and your blog. (no smoozing here, it’s sincere). I am a fan of Darcy’s Botanical products. Customer service is exceptional and her products work well for my hair. I would like this twisting cream because, I too, am looking for a product to moisturise and maintain my twist-outs and braid-outs and since I am not a product junkie, what better way to try a product–for free!!! Secondly, I try to practice sustainable living as much as I can, and if I find that the product does not work for me, trust that I will give it to another “natural” (for free) that can give it try!!! Thank you and all the best.

  • Joanna

    I would love to try out the Darcy’s Botanical because I havent had the chance to try alot of brands due to the fact that I started my journey in undergrad and now as a grad student I still dont get the chance financially to try new things. Finding a new twist cream would be heaven…I havent been able to find anything yet that fits my needs.

  • Amy Rivera

    I would love to have your half used products and also Darcys Botanical. I am a college student and I cant afford to buy the products and I love natural products and Im a new natural. Enter me!

  • Sharon

    Hi, I would love the Darcy’s Botanical Avocado & Honey Twisting Cream. I’m in search of a cream that will help my hair hold with twist and braid outs. Afroveda Pur Whipped gelly is the only thing that worked on my tresses but due to the price increase I will no longer purchase that brand. So I would like to see what Darcy’s can do.

    Thanks Sharon

  • Yolanda

    Hey! I would like to try this product because I have been wanting to try more of darcy’s products for a minute. I have tried her daily leave-in and it is really good (although kinky curly probably won now that I’ve tried it). I really like the ingredients she uses and would love to try this to see if I can find a product that will work wonders on my extra tight hair which I love.

  • Tiffany

    Blessings to all of you…I sooo excited about this product because two strand twist are my specialty & I it would be great to try this product out on hair. Ms. Sheena you are truly doing your thing and I wanted you to know that I will GLADLY take those half used containers that you are not using anymore Thanks :)

  • Kladeh
