Hair butters contain oils and butters that can be heavy on hair if not properly cared for, no matter your hair type. When using any of these products, make sure you monitor your hair for signs of buildup, regularly clarify your hair, and use an everyday cleanser strong enough to cleanse your hair of these butters. When your hair is properly cleansed, your strands can absorb more moisture, and these decadent hair butters can then lock that moisture in. What’s your favorite hair butter? Want to know more?
