Hair Butter 101 (General Information)

What is a hair butter?

Hair butter is a mixture of natural butters and oils. Ours is formulated to be used on the hair and body. Our products are for men and women. Childrene under 6 should not use essential oils so please check our ingredient list before buying or send us a message if you are still unsure.


  • Different type of butters: Cocoa butter, mango butter or shea butter.

  • Different types of natural oils: Castor oil, cocnut oil, olive oil.


Benefits of using hair butter. 

  • It can help define natural curls or waves if you have a non-coily hair texture. 

  • Improves overall scalp health by reducing inflammation, preventing breakage, reduces dry/itchy scalp, controls frizz and can add volume over time. 

  • It can add shine to braids and weaves.

  • If you have super tight curls, coils, kinky or afro hair, this product will make a great moisturizer, help with dryness, dandruff, add volume and reduce inflammation. 


Who should use our products?

  • It’s also beneficial for high porosity or high density hair. 

  • Hair butters can give coily hair the extra moisture it needs for styling and daily maintenance.

  • When it comes to fine hair, oily scalps or low porosity hair, these folks should use the smallest amount possible. It can weigh down strands and increase product build up to your scalp. A hair cream might be more suitable for you. They are water-based, so your strands still receive moisture without leaving you with greasy, limp strands. (Wait, don't leave! I have good news, keep reading.)

  • On the other hand, we tell our customers to use a TINY amount of prooduct and lightly brush the butter into their hair. One way to do this is to use the butter on your boody after a warm bath/shower. Then take the access oil from your body and brush it into your hair. That way you can still benefit from the oils and it may not weigh your hair down. Try it at least once.


How Often Should You Use Hair Butter?

(Generally, 2 to 3 times weekly) No one knows your hair better than you do, so it depends.

Our Suggestion:

  • Thin Hair 1-2 times weekly or monthly

  • Wavy hair 2-3 times weekly 

  • Curly hair 2-3 times weekly 

  • Afro hair 2-4 times weekly 

Directions:

Melt the butter in the palm of your hands with your body heat (about a dime or quarter-sized scoop) and run it through each section of your hair. It’s suggested to apply it on damp hair after a wash OR dry hair. We prefer that you use our butter on dry hair, this way you can measure how much product you are putting in. 


Hair butter VS hair cream:

  • Butter are oil based and creams are water based.

  • Butters are

Other Ways to Use OUR Hair Butter: (Not all are created equal)

  • Pre-shampoo mask (remommended for thin hair).

  • Leave-in conditioner or even a hair mask.

  • Another alternative, use as a monthly deep conditioner.

  • Hair butter can be kept on your hair or washed away to maintain moisture whenever you need it.

  • Make up remover, yes....try it.

  • Our hair and body butter soften and moisturizes men's beards and it can stop itchyness.


Is Hair Butter Better Than Hair Oil?

We offer both for purchase, one might be better for certain hair types than the other. It’s up to you which one you prefer to use on your hair. Butters and oils are very different and used to obtain different results. Butters are heavier than oils and provide more moisture.


Noteworthy:

  • Our hair and body butters are safe to use on dyed hair. It can even enhance the the color.

  • Do not use our butters or oils on your hair directly followed by a hot comb.

  • Our hair & body butters are a 3 and 1 (Good for hair, body, and makeup remover).

  • Can be use between rows of braids.
