Hello curlies! I have another review of a product from a new line I recently discovered when I won a giveaway on Instagram. It’s the Vanilla Bean CocoShealoe Husky Hair Butter by Adé Vegan Hair Essentials. Oh and in case you missed it, check out the Company Behind the Curl feature I did on Adé Vegan’s owner, Tonya! She is an AWESOME chick. A beautiful spirit! :o)
So the 2oz Vanilla Bean CocoShealoe Husky Butter is a goodie I got with my giveaway winnings. I am not sure how much the 2oz retails for because it is currently out of stock and will be back on July 4th but I want to say its around $10. It also comes in an 8oz size for $25 AND you can also get the plain Husky Hair butter (without the vanilla bean) in custom scents (Peppermint, Lavender, Lemongrass, Sweet Orange, Rose Petal, Clary Sage, Grapefruit, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Jasmine, Myrrh)! I love being able to choose a scent :o)
A rich medley of nourishing butters and healing oils for thick, dry, or damaged strands. This cream works wonders to soften thick, tightly curly hair textures. Also works great as a moisturizing base for prepping twists, plaits, or puffs.
Shea Butter, soy butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, aloe butter, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, castor oil, oat oil, silk amino acids, vitamin E, whole vanilla bean, vanilla absolute, ylang ylang essential oil. No chemical preservatives, No synthetic fragrance, No animal ingredients, No synthetic color, No mineral oil, No sulfates
****The ingredients I use are completely natural and free from any chemical preservatives therefore making it essential that the butter is stored correctly to get the longest life out of it. As you know, water is the breading ground for all bacteria so as long as you don’t let water from your hands dripping into the butter while you are doing your hair and you keep it stored in a cool dry place it should last between 6-9 months of purchase. Texture is that of a rich butter cream with easy spreadability on either wet or dry curls with no greasy buildup!
I want to draw your attention to how incredibly DELICIOUS this butter looks! OMG it reminds of cookie dough! It even has real specks of vanilla beans, just like the ice cream! Isn’t it sad that I often equate hair products to food haha a true #FatGirl LMAO!! Oh well, so yea, the butter smells really great as well, it has a light, natural vanilla scent, not like the overbearing, synthetic vanilla scent. It’s very tolerable and pleasant. The texture is just that way it looks–creamy, soft and very emollient. I would consider it more of a medium thickness butter, it is definitely thicker than AVHE’s Rosehip Strand Essence butter which is recommended for finer textures so I presume this butter is for thicker/courser textures (although both kinds worked well in my hair).
One thing about this butter that was very attractive is the selection of butters used. It contains good ole shea butter, cocoa butter (hence its name) and my beloved mango butter. Like the Rosehip Strand Essence butter, it also contains soy and aloe butter which I found to be really unique because I rarely ever see those butters used in products I’ve used. Check out that post for more info on the benefits of those butters. I also really love that the Husky Butter contains Silk Amino Acids because they “…penetrate the hair to strengthen, rebuild & nourish chemically damaged hair without weighing it down or causing buildup. These amino acids go deep down inside of the damaged hair cuticle to repair and protect it. They are hydroscopic, therefore having excellent moisture binding qualities. It adds softness, body and strength to the hair.” My hair feels very elastic when I use this and is very shiny so I imagine the silk aminos play a part in that, along with the aloe butter since aloe always makes my hair shiny :o)
One thing about the butter is it didn’t provide as much hold as I would like for it, especially since it was humid when I took the pics below but I do feel that this butter is extremely nourishing which by far exceeds whatever “visual” results I get by using it. I really enjoy using this when I am re-twisting my hair during the week and to seal in moisture. Check out the results below!
I got a couple more Adé Vegan Hair Essentials reviews coming up so stay tuned! :o)
