Ebene shea butter styling lotion-Review

Ebene - Natural Hair and Body Care, Non-toxic

Ingredients for Ebene shea butter hair styling lotion:
Water, shea butter, soybean oil, olive oil, vegetable emulsifying wax, avocado oil, babbasu oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E, panthenol, lavender essential oil, essential oils of ylang-ylang, lemon, and orange, potassium sorbate and vitamin C.

and according to my bottle is says %100 natural and Vegan friendly.


I found this product at a Whole Foods Market on a whim. I was looking for something moisturizing and thought that with the research that I have been doing on this site I could put my knowledge to use. I thought I would try this product to see if it would help for moisturizing. Since I know that shea butter is moisturizing and I have thick hair I figured I would give it a shot.

I haven't figured out the best combo for it yet. First I co-wash and then I add the shea butter before my gel and leave in treatment. So I kind of use it as a styling cream and moisturizer. I would say if you are looking for extra moisture it may not be a bad product to try. It is completely %100 natural. It was a little pricey for me I think I paid $11 or $12 for it, so if you're looking for something cheap it may not be in your budget.

So far I like the product and I have been using it for about a month now. If you use too much your hair will be a little greasy, but if you get the right amount for yourself it does help make it soft. I know for me I use a little more on my underneath hair where it gets tangled and it seems to help more.
The smell is not bad. I can definitely smell the citrus notes and lavender notes in my hair after the use. During the day the scent will disappear. However, if you have other products with scents you may want to think about the mixing of scents to make sure it will mix alright with the current ones you use. I think it's a good product and love it cause it's CG and %100 natural.

There is a link at the top to direct you to their site of more natural products. They have many products for curly hair. They also have bath and body products as well.
If you have any other questions just ask.

So I shared some with my 4a friend
...ladies of 3b/c and 4a I THINK THIS IS IT !!!....

So this is my breakdown (3b/c)-Cowashed with Suave Coconut,dabbed out excess water, squeezed a dime size of ebene in my palm, rub together where it became a creamier emulsion,flipped head over and racked in/finger comed in, then finished by a sweep over my hair like if I was making a ponytail. I used a wide tooth comb just make make sure everything was in and spreaded, then I scrunched in LA Looks #10 (clear) gel, and combed through again, styled and let it dry. Few hrs later I did sorta scrunch out some of the "hold" but WOW!!!

My curls were more defined, bouncy and shiny!!!

Cannot wait to test the 2nd day hair...I plan on using less of a dime size of product to sorta touch up...we shall see.

BTW I SO LOVE AOHR...seriously and its made in Florida too like the ebene
