Second Life Hair Butter
I love the Second Life Hair care. I have gray color treated hair and it gets dry. I decided to put a lot in my hair and massage my scalp and leaving it in all night. After my shampoo and conditioner I always use, my hair showed the difference of soft, manageable and flowing texture. I even saw some of my natural curls show up again. Love this product.
I had very short hair for about 40yrs (you can make a guess as to my age now :) Short, straight, shiny. No need for hair conditioner, ever! Then I grew my hair, it's about waist length. It is going gray now, is finer, and has mysteriously gotten a wave in it. I needed to start conditioning, but what to use? Nothing made in a lab, that's for sure! So I read up and started using jojoba oil. It worked pretty well. Then I found this site and after trying some of the other products and liking them, I decided to get the Hair Butter. The description is all about curly, dry hair and mine is not either of those things, but it Worked Really Well!! I put maybe the size of a dried pea on my finger tips, rub together till the butter has spread over them, then start running fingers thru my hair, concentrating on the lower half of it. I pat some on the top of my upper hair, then run fingers thru upper hair and on scalp. Then comb it thoroughly thru my hair. My hair has just the littlest stringy look. Then I brush thoroughly. Any "stringiness" disappears. The little wispy "witch" hairs are gone, my hair is conditioned top to bottom, and my DIL remarked how soft my hair felt, when she trimmed it the other day. The conditioning lasts till the next wash. With really long hair, I wash it once a week. This hair butter is the Best!
I mostly use Hask conditioner for my hair but haven't been satisfied with the results; no shine, strawlike hair, and an itchy scalp feeling afterward- Yuck! I knew there had to be some other product I could try that would give me better results. I dabbed my fingers a few times into the Hair butter. It did feel thick at first but got softer when I rubbed it into my hair. It was really smooth and not greasy at all. I used it as a leave-in conditioner. I will have to experiment more with this as the first try was I put too much in. My hair was shiny and my scalp didnt itch for once!
Day 1 - this looks fantastic, and my hair is so soft.
It is more work to apply than liquid products, but has a softer finish.
Next day - frizzier and greasier even with the smallest amount applied on day 1.
My conclusion is that this is a great product for short curly hair that is washed & styled daily, but not for longer hair that is washed 2 or 3 times a week and needs to be revived on days 2 & 3.
Love the no-plastic packaging!
I really like this stuff. Great for fly-aways and smells amazing! Doesn’t take much.
