In search of a butter

curlyiniecalicurlyiniecali Posts: 17Registered Users
Before I try making my own butter again, I would like to order a butter to try out. I'm looking for something heavyweight for coarse 4a hair. I tried QB AOHC and Burdock root but they seemed to be more like a cream than a butter. Btw I'm protein sensitive although I'm open to trying new things to see if they work. Any suggestions?

    Whenever I'm looking for a product I go to sites like Sage Naturalceuticals and 3sistersbeautysupply where they sell different brands and I sort by what I want.

    Check out Sage, her website is very easy to maneuver. You will get an idea of what is out there and the ingrediants are listed.

    I am a HUGE fan of using butters for sealing my hair and twisting. These are my absolute favourites:

    - b.a.s.k Palm Tapioca Deluxe hair Cream
    -Oyin handmade Whipped Pudding
    -Darcy' Botanicals Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme
    - Raw Shea butter
    - Raw shea butter mixed with CURLS whipped Cream

    Even though the products listed call themselves creams, they are definitely the constancy of a butter and I spoon them out of the jar to avoid contaminating them with my fingers. I also get at least a year shelf life with the ones I have listed!

    Pumpkin seed and hemp seed butter are my favorites. I mix my pumpkin seed with coconut oil and it makes my hair super soft. Hth

    My new absolute holy grail of butters is the b.a.s.k. condensed custard. Soft hair every time and the lemon beignet scent is to die for. After I clear my stash this is the only butter I will buy!

    I've never tried a butter before, and I'm not sure if I want to, but I plan on using this site to purchase clay. It's an all natural site, and they sell butters as well. Welcome to Camden-Grey Essential Oils, Inc.
    I haven't used the site before, but the youtuber KinkyKurlyQueen always gets her Rhassoul Clay from there (the clay I want to try).
    Everything on the site is natural/organic.
    (Sorry, I didn't actually suggest a butter, since I've never actually used one before)

    Qhemet Biologics actually makes a butter that I like a lot. The Aethiopika Hydrate and Twist butter. I especially like that its not Shea Butter based, as I find my hair is finicky with Shea butter.
