I was skeptical that this little can would go very far. I have shoulder length fine curly hair. I used this product on wet hair after shampooing and conditioning. I took and rubbed the three middle fingers of both hands over the product a few times. Took a very small scraping on the back of a nail and fingered it through my hair. What a great detangler. When I used to use a mix of other products more hair would come out while combing. There was still some hair in the comb, but less than normal. It did not leave my hair greasy and weighed down. I've been using this for a little over a week in conjunction with the shampoo bar from MadeOn and another brand conditioner. I do not notice the fragrance.
This butter really does give your hair a second-life! It comes as a solid in a tin, and you rub your fingers in it to warm it up (because it's solid, it doesn't melt at room temperature so you don't have to worry about gooping large amounts onto your hair). It spreads easily, like a light coat of healthy oils from your fingertips to the ends of your hair. I use it as a leave-in conditioner on my dry hair (the ends only). I find that the next time I shower, my ends feel more moisturized - almost like they have a protective layer of waterproof moisture on them. The only complaint I have is the smell of this product. For some reason, the orange essential oil smells tart to me - not sweet. So I'm not too fond of the smell, but the results are incredible. I use the MadeOn Shampoo Bar (plain, without a vinegar rinse) and then when my hair is dry I use this hair butter to condition my ends. My hair is absolutely AMAZING now and I cannot believe the positive change. Such a difference (very healthy, bouncy, full of life, moisturized). I ordered the family size, and at the rate of use, this tin will last me years.
Renee, do you have any dry shampoo recommendations?
Daughter likes how it calms her frizzes. Thank you!
I use this in the car (pocket size) in the morning on the way to work and it takes frizz really well and is easy to spread. would by again
It worked just fine for controlling the frizz (though my hair is fine and curly) and seemed to moisturize fine. But the smell is just too much for me. I have my hair pulled away so I don't get ill but I will probably have to wash it out. Maybe I can find someone who is less sensitive that I can gift the rest to.
