Jul 20, 2014 - This stuff right here! If you are having any doubts about purchasing this, don't. It is everything that a hair butter, cream, styler should be rolled into one and I can see it working for a variety of textures. Details: The consistency is whipped frosting unlike gel, it smells like vanilla cake, but does not linger in the hair, a little goes a VERY long way, it smoothes and detangles hair upon contact, provides definition, but little hold, provides sheen/shine if you allow it to sink in, moisture lasts for at least two-three days, reactivates easily with water and no coated feeling. Why this is unlike other products on the market: My hair does not do well with the typical "leave-in" conditioners that have cationic surfactants like BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate) and fatty alcohols like Cetearyl Alcohol high up in the ingredient list. I am not a chemist, but those ingredients while excellent for conditioning and detangling, provide no moisture to curly and kinky hair. Moisture= oil + water, plain and simple. The Aloe Whipped Butter Gel is an immersion of oil in water within the first FIVE ingredients. BTSM and Fatty alcohols are included, but they are not the anchor ingredients. It also has aloe vera gel (AVG), which unlike aloe vera leaf juice (AVJ), is very hydrating for the hair next to water. I use this alone since I have low porosity hair that dislikes layers of product/oil and I let it sink it for at least 10 minutes before styling or adding gels. I have used this in the winter, spring and summer with the same level of moisture retained. I could see this being used for an LOC or LCO regimen and sealed with a light oil, hair grease or styler. Camille Rose's line is the most nourishing I have found and the owner gets what moisture is and is not. I personally am not a fan of all of her products (i.e. reformulated Moisture Milk) and I certainly have regular conditioners and stylers from other lines, but everyone needs a staple moisturizer and few lines are able to get it right. She got this one right and I love it! Comparison: I have shoulder length low porosity 4a hair that is fine, protein sensitive and does not like heavy oils or butters. If your hair is similar, you may love this too.
