I really enjoyed this product the smell was a little strong at 1st but it grew on me. The smell also lingers a few days after styling. With that being said I really liked this product. It immediately made my hair soft and more manageable. My mom who is relaxed likes this product too.
The smell was HORRIBLE! and dries out your scalp TERRIBLY and leaves dandruff and the texture is quite sticky.
So i was going to buy this in the store and i took the cap off to smell the product (like i always do) and the smell was so offensive to me. Idk if anybody had a similar experience. I'm sure it probably works well for some people if they can overlook the smell, but I just couldn't. A word of advice: always smell these products before you buy them. Thank God I did lol
This product is TERRIBLE for fine hair that is easily weighed. At first, my hair was very moisturized but once I combed through it , it felt coated and full of white residue and dandruff.
I liked this. A little goes a long way. The scent could be better. It smells like chemicals to me.
Left my ends quite dry. I will reuse in warmer weather. Has no smell. I liked the consistacy and hope for better results in summer.
This stuff smells really good. So far, I have used it on my hair wet and dry, and I think i like it better on second, third, or 8th day hair, slightly misted with water, for a refresher cream. The first time I used it while my hair was wet, I must have added too much because few hours after applying, my hair felt greasy, but not really moisturized. I was heavy handed, so that may have contributed to the outcome. It clearly states to add a small amount, but I ignored the directions, cause ummm... this 4J-Z hair of mine needs a lil more product. In this case, though, I might have had a better outcome had I followed directions. The next time, I had twists in my hair, used it while dry (just a little mist) and my hair absorbed the product. It felt nicely moisturized afterward. I can see this product possibly playing nice with maybe a gel for a very nice twistout.
The smell was AMAZING!! I loooved how it wasn't as thick as other creams, which left my hair light. It went on smooth and left my hair very moisturized. You don't need a whole lot ( I soon learned that) just a little dab and it coats the hair pretty well.
I really loved the super softening hair butter. It had a pleasant smell and went on smoothly on both my daughter's hair and mine. We used it so much, we ran out quickly! It works well on wet or dry hair and I used it for twist outs and ponytails. It helped tame my frizz and was my go-to styling product!
I didn't really like this product. It left my hair feeling dry the next day after use... it did not feel adequately moisturized at all... It smells good...
I love this stuff. I went on smoothly and left my hair feeling soft. I would say that I might have been a little too enthusiastic with it at first - put too much in and it left my hair feeling greasy. Go easy when you're applying - less is more. I prefer using it on dry hair as opposed to wet.
A 4c hair miracle! This product has given me THE most defined, moisturized and softest twist outs ever. I especially love that there is no need for additional curl defining product you get it all in one jar.
I like the way it manages my curls. It seems if I used to much it made my hair look greasy. It smells great and goes on smoothly. It does work well with dry hair too.
I used it to moisturize my hair daily and also when twisting my hair and my twist outs came out uncrunchy, soft and clearly moisturized. The curls were also nice.. I did have a problem however when it came to frizz. I always used it on wet/damp hair.
I used this to add moisture to my twist and it worked well. It seems super thick but once you put it on your hair is melts like butter. Great product
The product left my hair soft, but didn't feel it was quite enough to last through the day. I added oil to my hair as well. I like it better on dry hair, than to use just after shampooing, because it seemed to last longer and my hair wasn't dry-feeling then.
The scent is great, and it lasts on my hair, which is really rare. Usually the scent leaves my hair quickly. I didn't really notice any difference on my hair with this particular butter when using it as a leave in, my hair still had frizz on the second day and it didn't feel any softer. But when I used it on dry hair (a very, VERY small amount), it helped tame frizz and create a bouncier curl. I loved it for dry hair! I'll keep using it and see what else happens.
Although my hair instantly felt softer after I applied to damp hair, it did not feel adequately moisturized. Perhaps such a product will work better on less kinkier textures.
I used this as my C in the L.O.C method an it really did not do anything great. It was not like I expected from an actual "butter" but it did seem to refresh my 2nd day hair. It felt very soft an fluffy. So I would not use to seal my hair. But just to refresh my curls.
When I first received this product, I didn't expect much of nothing. I used this product 3 times now to style my hair and I love it. I just can't help but to reach for it when it's time to style my hair. It gives me soft fluffy moisturized curls every time. I do have to use a light styling gel with it for hold but the moisture from this product is great, my hair is never crunchy. I am very pleased with this butter and it smells good too.
I liked how this product left my hair so soft. I feel that I could use this product with in as a base moisture product before I style my hair but I would not use it by it self to style my hair. The product has a nice smell. Over all I think the product is nice but I would not repurchase as a styler.
This butter is hydrating when first applied, however it did not last very long for my hair, I had to reapply again the next morning. It was good for softening the hair, but just ok on the moisturizing part. I would not buy this one again.
I was hoping this product would do so much more for my hair than what it did. I will say that it's great to revive old hair and bring back some softness and shine, but that's about it. I've used it to do various styles including twist outs, braid outs, and even wash and gos, and it's just not great in that department. If anything, I would only use it in between my wash days, to keep my hair looking/feeling fresh as needed, but I wouldn't have it in my daily hair regimen. I have very thick hair, so the butter wasn't too heavy for me. I actually found myself using more than I thought needed, just to get the desired result. Overall, I was pretty disappointed in this one.
This product is good for giving moisture but not so much for definition and hold. It makes my hair soft and manageable but I wish it just a little bit of hold.
This butter is great to tame dry, fly away hair and keep the style nice. It is a bit heavy for really fine hair like mine, but usable if you really go easy on the amount. Still needed other styling products for definition though. This provides moisture, but no hold.
I started out loving this product. it went on well; it seemed to moisturize my hair well. but my hair wasn't as defined or moist as i thought it would be the next day. I think this and the root to tip mender need to be used consistently. I will try again but this product needs another styler to give the definition I was looking for.
This product was very helpful. It softened my unruly hair and kept it well moisturized. I wish the jar came bigger as I have to use quite a bit even while sectioning out my hair. Other than that, I really enjoyed it!
I found this butter softening. I would warn you, if twisting etc., use it on dry-er hair or at least give plenty of time to dry. I was nice and fluffy the next day
This product wasn't too bad but not great either. I would have liked it to be a bit thicker for my hair. It was good that it didn't leave any buildup or residue on my hair.
Found it to be really drying to my hair, but It can be used with a moisturizer to pick up for that. I got curl definition, but the dried out hair just didn't do it for me.
I used this on wet and dry hair. I loved it on dry hair. My hair felt instantly softened and best of all, I can use it every other day. When used on wet hair, the results are just okay. The moisturizer has a pleasant smell and is reasonably priced. This will definitely be a staple moisturizer for me. Love it.
This light weight butter went on my damp high porosity hair very easy. It left my fine strands feeling moisturized, soft and smelling wonderful. The next day my hair was soft coated and mositurized. I could tell the moisture was locked in. This product is great for the warmer months.
Well, it looks like my curls are as much of a butter-loving fatty as I am. My hair slurped this stuff up the same way a dog laps up peanut butter. Smacking and grins included. One glob of the Super Softening Hair Butter and my greedy curls were quieted, tamed even. I would swim in it, bake a pie with it, frost a cake with it. My curls were activated (rare because they are also, in fact, as lazy as I am), and bountifully bounciful. Amazing product with amazing results. Hoorah!
I used the hair butter on my damp hair it left my hair soft and smelling good the next day I like how the butter isn't to thick to get out also. I will use this product again
Im not too sure about this product. It went on my hair nicely but my hair looks even duller than normal. I think this is an okay product but just not for me.
In my opinion, this would have been the perfect leave in conditioner in the au naturale anti-breakage line. it's light, slippery, and moisturizing. It's tempting to apply globs of the product. It could get greasy if you do that. It doesn't have hold, so it's great for fluffy twist outs. I used it as a leave in underneath my fav stylers.
I love this product! I love the light and fluffy consistency of this cream as well as the nice smell. It did not lay down my hair as many oils and butters do, but it did provide a kind of soft hold. It is great for wearing an afro, or twist/knot out. I had to be careful not to use too much because it will turn your hair a white color. It made my afro look really soft and fluffy.
When I 1st saw this I wanted 2 try & like it.When used as a sealant over a water based product its ok however,just using it by itself as A moisturizer,it leaves a "film" on my 3c\4a transitioning hair.
I LOVE THIS BUTTER! It helps make my hair so manageable. It actually makes my hair instantly soft. This is the first product I ever used that did the job it says it does instantly. It makes my hair so soft and it's lightweight. It also helps keep my hair moisturized! -Lola (@low_lahh) Hair Growth Diaries Participant and Hair Model
This product is AMAZING! It offered great moisture, reduced frizz and provided a nice, soft hold for my twist and braid outs. Extra perk: It smells REALLY REALLY good! Tess (@TrulyTes) Hair Growth Diaries Participant
This hair butter is amazing! It's softening and it moisturizes beautifully! I highly recommend it. Signed Lauren (@curlylaurenj) Hair Growth Diaries Participant and Hair Model
This product is my fav out of the bunch. Butter has done this head of hair good! It helps to moisturize my curls and give my twist outs great definition. Racquel from the Grow Out Diaries
This product did an amazing job of moisturizing my hair and scalp. My scalp dries out very easily, even to the point of flaking, but for the entire time that I used this product I had no flakes. I would definitely recommend this product. -Jasmine (Grow Out Diaries)
I loved this product. I had super defined braidouts, fluffy twist outs and soft pretty minitwists. My hair stayed moisturized for days at a time. This was a great butter to seal with and a great cream for my LCO method. This was my FAVORITE product of this line! Aquayla from the Grow Out Diary
