this is terrible! had a sample from the body shop and used it after 2 months. when i peeled open the sample, the "butter" was already all chalky and white. i can't apply it to my hair!!! ok, so i tried to and there was no difference to my hair AT ALL. plus, the smell was just strange. sure, the sample was 2 months old, but i dun think hair butter is a product that expires in a matter of months right?!
Although the instructions on the actual product says that you must use it like a conditioner (after shampoo, then rinse it out), the sales associate at the Body Shop told me that it is actually a leave in product. I personally found it very nice! My hair felt light and bouncy afterwards. I have a combination of oily hair near my roots and dry hair at the bottom and this product was fantastic!
I think this product has too much olive oil or something, as it just leaves my hair greasy and heavy. It's not so bad if I only use a little bit on the tips of my hair and wash it out quickly, but how fun is that? Avoid!
First of all, the directions in small print on the bottom of my jar say to put this on towel-dried hair and leave it in. It doesn't say that it is a conditioner, so I'm not sure why so many people assume that it is. It says "Hair Butter" on it, and it seems way thicker than even deep conditioners to me. So anyways, I apply about a nickel-size amount to my medium/long, dry hair and it makes it shiny and detangled! I also think that it smells AMAZING and the smell lasts in my hair. I think it is a great price also, since you are getting so much product.
I don't have a great track record with conditioners, but I have to say I'm suprised by all the negative reviews. Its not slippery at all so it does feel different than most conditioners, but a lot of that 'slip' comes from chemicals that don't necessarily do anything for your hair. I don't find it to work better or worse than any other product I've used and the fact that it's a little more natural and doesn't have paraben or sillicones in it gives it a boost over the competition IMO.
I like the smell, in the shower it's a little strong and kind of air freshener-y, but once it's rinsed out it's really nice and reminds me of something I can't quite place. I would buy again but not at full price, which is easy as the body shop does lots of BOGO deals and promos.
the first time i used this product i loved it. however, after using it a few times i've noticed that my hair has started to become waxxy, i don't know if this is a common problem with the product but i like to use a lot of conditioner to make my hair soft and shiny, however i found that you use too much of this product and no matter how much you wash it out, there is always a waxxy, greasy feel to your hair.
the smell isn't that great and it's way to overpriced for the quality of the product.
the packaging is also quite ugly and bland.
i would not use this product again and nor would i recommend it to anyone.
one good thing, however, is that it is a good de-tangler and after using it I found that it was easier to brush through my hair, as it's quite thick it needs a lot of attention when washing so that it's not knotty when i dry it.
UGH. This is absolutely TERRIBLE. By far the worst product I have ever used on my hair. It does nothing for moisture, and when you rinse it out, it feels like you just shampooed. It actually leaves my hair feeling worse than before. It never rinses out, so the buildup dulls your hair. I can't stand the smell. It runs out in a single use if you have long hair like me, and it just.. ugh. I HATE it.
i was very skeptical about the reviews since the ingredients in this hair butter are soo good and got a sample anyway. well you better trust the reviews!
the smell is quite pleasant, but thats the only good thing i can say about this hair butter. not only does it not moisturize at all, it totally dried my hair out. i have strait asian hair, i have never had problems with my hair frizzing or tangling, but after using this hair butter i could not comb trough my hair properly! my hair was dry like crazy. seriously, i have never tried a conditioner this bad! so disappointed, i really really wanted to like this product. beware! get a sample if you can!
Here is the thing about this hair butter, the instructions for use are completely wrong!
Here is how you use this product and you will like it if you try it this way:
Wash and condition your hair with your usual products, after you towel dry your hair take a hazelnut sized portion, rub your hands together and rub it through your hair. Leave it in.
Your hair will be shiny and silky the rest of the day.
Use it a couple times a week.
I used it the way the instructions tell you too and I HATED THIS STUFF!!! Try it my way :)
