Default Burts Bees Body Butter

Has anyone ever tried Burts Bees body butter in their hair?? I recently bought the Rich and Repairing Cocoa Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil Body Butter. So far, I like how it makes my hair feel.

here are the ingredients:
Ingredients: water, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, stearic acid, glycerin, beeswax, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, macadamia ternifolia (macadamia) seed oil, rosa canina (rosehip) seed oil, glucose, fragrance, salix nigra (willow) bark extract, borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, xanthan gum, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, tocopherol, alchemilla vulgaris (lady’s mantle) extract, plantago lanceolata (plantain) leaf extract, calendula officinalis flower extract, sucrose stearate, retinyl palmitate, sodium borate, chlorphenesin, phenoxyethanol

Can someone give me some feedback on the ingredients please?

It has beeswax pretty high up. It might be difficult to remove without shampoo.

Yeah, I thought about the beeswax, but lately I've been washing my hair with Cream of Nature Shampoo...I haven't been co-washing that much.

Do a search on the beeswax. You may need a sulfate shampoo to prevent buildup. Have you looked into the KBB butter or cream? They are natural. Somethings have vegetable wax, but that's not a problem to remove. There are lots of threads--it's one of THE current lines.

ive used a product hat has natural beeswax as the third ingredient. I really like it. It kept moisture in, make my hair shiny and prevented frizz. It didnt come out with CO washing. I didnt have to use sulfates though. cocobetamine (sp?) removes it. So if your going to try it i'd use a low poo.

well creme of nature shampoo (old formula) is a loo poo, so i think i'll be fine with that. i just don't have the time or money for extra expensive products, and so far since i've been using it i like it.

Has anyone else had success with this??? It seems that it might work really well to "hold" the hair in place kind of like a hair/cream spray? When I use it on my hands it penetrates right away, not sure if that's good or bad if it were used on your hair????
