How to Use the Hair Butter
Step-by-step instructions to use the hair butter, successfully.
TIP 1: Be aware that this butter is RICH, and melts with body heat AND hot weather. Therefore, using a small amount is effective AND keeps your collars and garments from being saturated with the silky, wonderful butter.
TIP 2: Refrigerating the hair butter until it is solid will aid in not using too much; it is very RICH.
- Use a clean, dry spoon to separate a dime-size to quarter-size amount of the hair butter into a clean saucer and cover until ready to use (close the original container)
- After conditioning your hair with your usual/favorite hair conditioner, rinse very well until water running from your hair is clear
- Apply a tiny amount of the hair butter to your scalp while your hair is still damp, only using enough on your fingertips to make them shiny
- After applying a minuscule amount to your entire scalp, apply a small amount over your still-moist hair strands from the tips/roots to the ends. You can do this easily, by gently sectioning your hair into four quadrants, and then three sub-sections of each quadrant. Smooth the butter onto those sections with your fingertips
- After you smooth a section of hair with the butter, coil it around itself into a Bantu-knot and tuck the ends into that Bantu knot. Also, you can plait each section just before you Bantu-knot it
- Repeat the smoothing process and Bantu-knotting process with each section
- Cover your hair with a clean, silky/hair-friendly, slightly snug-fitting hair cap that you don’t mind becoming ‘buttery’
- Protect your pillow cases and other bedding that you don’t want ‘buttery’ with a clean bath towel, as you sleep
- Let your hair air-dry with the hair cap on over-day or over-night; do NOT use hair appliances such as blow dryers, hair dryers and etc. Your body heat will work with the hair butter to soften, silken and deep-condition your hair without excessively hot, mechanical heat
- Repeat these steps each time you cleanse/condition your hair
- You may use the hair butter to refresh your hair between cleansing/conditioning

Shea butter is a triglyceride (fat) derived, mainly, from stearic acid and oleic acid and extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa). It’s usually yellow in color when raw, with more processed versions being ivory or white in color. Shea butter melts at body temperature, absorbs rapidly into the skin, acts as a ‘re-fatting’ agent, and has good water-binding properties.
Rose oil (rose otto, attar of rose, attar of roses or rose essence) is the essential oil extracted from the petals of various types of rose. Rose ottos are extracted through steam distillation, while rose absolutes are obtained through solvent extraction, the absolute being used more commonly in perfumery.
Olive oil is a liquid fat obtained from olives (the fruit of Olea europaea; family Oleaceae), a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. The oil is produced by pressing whole olives. It consists mainly of oleic acid (up to 83%), with smaller amounts of other fatty acids including linoleic acid (up to 21%) and palmitic acid (up to 20%)
Peppermint (Mentha × piperita, also known as Mentha balsamea Wild) is a hybrid mint, a cross between watermint and spearmint
Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It has various applications. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C (75 °F) without spoiling.
Vanilla is a flavoring derived from orchids of the genus Vanilla, primarily from the Mexican species, flat-leaved vanilla (V. planifolia)
Cocoa butter, also called theobroma oil, is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean. It is used to make chocolate, as well as some ointments, toiletries, and pharmaceuticals. Cocoa butter has a cocoa flavor and aroma. Its best-known attribute is its melting point, which is just below human body temperature. Cocoa butter is obtained from whole cocoa beans
Avocado oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of the Persea americana (avocado). It valued for its regenerative and moisturizing properties. Avocado oil functions well as a carrier oil, and is high in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E. Avocado oil is one of few edible oils not derived from seeds; it is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit.
