Spoiler: I LOVE THIS BUTTER!! I have used it as a leave in, sealer, and styler and it hasn’t let me down in either role.
This product contains some of the most delicious ingredients I’ve come across in something that wasn’t edible. Green tea, almond milk, pumpkin seed oil and rice bran oil? Yes ma’am. The game changer for me was honey. Hands down, my hair is infatuated with humectants like honey, so trying this butter took no convincing; I had to.
The first thing I noticed about this product was how light the jar was. (I actually opened the jar to make sure I wasn’t about to purchase a half empty container.) Sounds crazy, but it was a tell-tale sign that the actual product wasn’t heavy at all. And it surely isn’t.
Its rich and creamy with a super smooth consistency. On a scale of water and shea butter, its about the texture of pudding or yogurt.
The fragrance is to die for. It’s reminiscent of vanilla almond milk and chai tea with a splash of cupcakes. I love that the scent of this product lingers in your hair. This product performs so well that I can obtain “second day hair” by lightly spritzing with water, or jumping in the shower and letting the steam plump my curls back up. My favorite method is the latter because the heat from the shower reactivates the fragrance, and I literally feel like I’m bathing in chai tea.
Applying it to my hair is a treat for me because the slip cuts down my styling time by about 5 minutes, if not more. It literally melts into my hair like butter. It leaves my curls defined, moisturized, shiny, and soft to the touch. As per the directions (which I can attest to) this product can be used on wet or dry hair. I have to respect a multi-use product.

This product has contributed to some amazing hair days. I have gotten compliments, followed by the golden question, “What do you use on your hair?” every time I use it. I must say however, that I’m usually a wash and go girl, so I cannot fully attest to the claim of this product being great for “leaving your twists soft, strengthened, elongated and holding your style,” as the brand promises.
The only con I would have is the price point of this product. An 8 oz jar retails for about 16.99. With proper planning, you can take advantage of deals online, or sales in your local retailer to get it at a discounted rate. Even so, its worth the price tag because my hair is truly in love with these ingredients and all that the bring to the table.
I’m not even halfway through the jar and I’ve already ordered another go ’round. I’ve added this product to my staples, it will be in HEAVY rotation this summer, esp in this Florida humidity. I am extremely happy I stumbled upon this product, my hair deserves this smoothie of amazingness. My conclusion about this butter? See line 1, above.
