I’m in the mar­ket for a good hair but­ter. Some­thing that will leave my hair sup­ple and easy to man­age. I just tried Karen’s Body Beau­ti­ful But­ter Love and real­ly liked it. But do your read­ers have any oth­er sug­ges­tions?

Alright ladies, help her out! What is your favorite hair but­ter?

I love Carol’s Daugh­ter Healthy Hair But­ter for my hair. Espe­cial­ly around my edges. 

I have also made a con­coc­tion of pure shea but­ter, extra vir­gin olive oil, a touch of tea tree oil, coconut oil and lemon­grass scent­ed shea but­ter. My hair needs dif­fer­ent things for dif­fer­ent sec­tions so some­times I used dif­fer­ent prod­ucts for each sec­tion.


Shea butter…natural Shea but­ter. Noth­ing works bet­ter for me and it’s cost effec­tive.


I have won­der­ful results from Afro Veda’s “Total­ly Twist­ed Gin­ger Hair But­ter.”

Loving Natural

Qhemet Bio­log­ics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream is like hair cream, but­ter, hair dress all in the one and the best prod­uct I have used for my dry 4c hair. It needs to be sold in Wal­mart or Sally’s seri­ous­ly. I love that stuff.


Anoth­er vote for Elas­ta QP. My twist outs are a thing of beau­ty.


My hair loves the Koils by Nature hair but­ter- it’s a whipped shea but­ter with a bunch of oils added.


The Shea Moisture’s Restora­tive Mask. It can be used as a frizz free leave in instead of a DC mask and that’s how I pre­fer it. Crazy mois­ture and shiny, defined twist-outs!


I LOVEEEE R&B by lush. Has any­one else tried it?


Hey i use r&b at the is work­ing real­ly well and the scent is total­ly lush !!!


Stum­bled on this site for solomons daughter…and joined them on facebook…fell in love…they do a to-die-for hair but­ter shea laven­der smiles…its absolute­ly gor­geous keeps my scalp mois­turised but NOT greased-up!!! and keeps my curls soft and defined.…I also did a blow out with it an my hair felt COTTON CANDY SOFT !!!plus i walked around col­lege all day smelling of lavender.…im a new­bie to this but def. my fave so far!!


Oyin whipped pud­ding is great!


Jane Carter Solu­tion Nour­ish and Shine and Tal­i­ah Waajid’s Style and Shine for kids.(I have no kids but this works great on my hair for twists)


i love love love!!! bee mine’s curly butter!!!!!–my hair just loves it and its a sta­ple in my twist/braid-out rou­tine.


Anoth­er vote for Qhemet’s Amla and Olive Heavy Cream. Love!

Ain't I an African

I use shea but­ter after mois­tur­iz­ing the hair with a water and aloe vera mix. The vari­ety of shea but­ter that I use is from Sudan.


I use a home­made mix of pure shea but­ter, coconut oil, olive oil, and cas­tor oil. The 1st time I didn’t like the con­sis­ten­cy of my mix, so I’ve been exper­i­ment­ing with how to get it “creami­er.” Home­made con­coc­tions are the ish because you can tai­lor them to your hair’s needs! :)


Shea Mois­ture Curl Enhanc­ing Smooth­ie!! Its all nat­ur­al, leaves my hair soft, non greasy, its only $10 for 12oz!!!!! IT lasts a month! Hon­est­ly, I would not use it as a mois­tur­iz­er alone, I use it every oth­er day in com­bi­na­tion with my glyc­erin spritz or plain water. I guess it real­ly depends on what you want to use it as.…I use hair but­ters sort of as a leave in con­di­tion­er, that I apply every oth­er day..or to give my hair some def­i­n­i­tion, hold or addi­tion­al soft­ness.


Qhemet Bio­log­ics Bur­dock Root But­ter Cream. Best thing ever for my kinky/coily, fine hair.


I use Carol’s Daugh­ter Healthy Hair But­ter is makes my 4a/b fro soooo soft and boun­cy.


I still love Asha’s The Mane Attrac­tion Hair But­ter. Been using it since around 2005/2006. That’s the one thing that I will go out of my way to spend mon­ey for.


Qhemet Bur­dock Root Cream!!! Its so mois­tur­iz­ing


i’m with diana, qhemet’s bio­log­ics olive and amla heavy cream


Jane Carter Solu­tion nour­ish and shine!


I LOVE LOVE LOVE avo­ca­do but­ter!

Qhem’s BRBC comes in a close sec­ond.…


I use a home­made mix of shea but­ter, aloe vera gel and a lit­tle bit of hon­ey. It smells good and works won­ders on my hair and skin.

Besides the home­made stuff I make myself (which also is a mir­a­cle on my skin) My fave is Shea Amla but­ter from and I bet it’s the cheap­est too! only about $9

my home­made con­coc­tion for hair but­ter is Raw Shea but­ter, olive oil, jojo­ba oil, and grape seed oi.l you can add pep­per­mint extract or cocoa but­ter for scent. I put on low heat on my stove to bring every­thing togeth­er then let cool and then I pour in one of those salon appli­ca­tor bot­tles (usu­al­ly $1). Next time I make, i think I’m gonna put on “whip” in my blender to see if I get a nice whipped cream tex­ture


Qhemet Bio­log­ics Alma and olive heavy cream… Hands down… The best but­ter I’ve ever used on my 4c hair


I am with MimiW. Elas­ta QP Man­go But­ter Olive Oil mois­tur­iz­er is rea­son­ably priced. I use it to set my hair in braids or twists. The next morn­ing I have a nice twist or braid out.


WHIP shea but­ter, just add fav oils to raw unre­fined shea but­ter and whip for less greasy feel add corn­starch.

I also per­son­al­ly love KBB hair but­ters

good luck!


Cupua­cau But­ter by Pura Body Nat­u­rals! leaves hair alot soft­er than most shea but­ter based prod­ucts.


Lots of peo­ple like straight shea but­ter or coconut oil. I make a pomade that I sell that has both, and that I love. In fact, I’m going to put some on right now.
