Default How are you using DM Cocoa Hemp Hair Butter cream?!!

This smells really good, but I am having a hard time figuring out how to use it since it's thick. I love the other DM products I have tried so far, but I'm not quite sure how to use this one. I tried a little bit (emulsified in hands) and scrunched in 2nd day hair after spritzing with water/Avg mixture, but.....I think I used to much and I was not impressed. Please share any tips on using this products. Tips and pointers Greatly appreciated!!! TIA!

Doesn't it smell LUSCIOUS On the original DM thread it was discussed that it's used as a LI primarily and only a small amt. I don't do well with oily type LI's so I've used it like JCN&S a pea size or 2 to touch up or on 2nd day after spritzing to calm the frizz. Only on dry hair for me! Great stuff though, love it!

It works great for me as a leave-in. I've had good luck with it under the CCB, Innersense and some of the puddings. I emulsify it in my hands, rake and scrunch into wet hair. Apply whatever curl cream I'm using, scrunch lightly with my Curls Like Us towel, apply gel and diffuse. I have also used it to touch-up dry hair . It's my favorite product of her line.

I use a couple of dabs to scrunch curls while upside down. I avoid getting it too close to my scalp because it makes my roots seem "oily." I use it under BRHG, love it.

I've also used it as a LI on 2nd or 3rd days to help control frizz, moisturize the top...but I also love scrunching in some before bed, let it soak in overnight! Really soft the next morning!

I'm with Sharon. I like putting a little on at night to sort of "seal" my hair. Looks better in the morning that way.

Thanks for all the input! Looks like I will have to try it as a leave-in and maybe at night too. Thanks again!

I scrunch a little in my wet ends before or after leave-in.

Default DM CHB

I'll have to try it as a leave-in. I tried it on dry hair to smooth down flyways and found it way too heavy for this purpose. DM L&T works much better for this on my fine, 3A hair.

Also, I find the DM CHB too heavily scented. It smells fabulous, but after applying it to dry hair I can smell it constantly and it becomes overwhelming.
