Review: Darcy's Botanicals Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme
Our hand whipped Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme is an all natural hair butter cream for moisturizing, styling and conditioning your natural coils.
It absorbs instantly into hair to replenish much needed moisture, provide softness, sheen & encourages health hair growth.
This highly moisturizing creme is very thick & concentrated so a little goes a long way. It is perfect for type 3-4 naturals:)
It has a very thick concentrated buttercream consistency with the sweet smell of gently infused African Madagascar Vanilla that is truly heavenly! Our customers love the scent. Many say it smells like vanilla ice cream, some say it smells like a sweet bourbon vanilla, depending upon how long we infuse the vanilla:)
Once you try it, you'll be hooked!
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Our Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme is a luscious blend of all natural oils that will provide healthy conditioning, add sheen, softness & moisture to your naturally curly hair.
WHAT'S IN IT?
Organic Palm Oil, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Madagascar Vanilla, Vegetable Emulsifying Wax, Candelilla Wax, Organic Castor Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil and Potassium Sorbate.
HOW DO I USE IT?
*Use it as a hair moisturizer to naturally condition dry curls, locs & waves.
*Use as a styling butter for twists, braids, afros, and locs.
*Use to promote healthy hair growth
*Many of our customers also use it as a body butter!!! Works great as a multi-purpose hair & body butter:)
If you are a fan of hair butters, you will probably love this product because it is the texture of a thick creamy butter.
The product has a very pleasant fragrance that is rich but subtle. It had great hold for a two-strand twist setting but my hair requires a bit more moisture. I had already used a natural leave-in conditioner under the product. I probably could have gotten better results if I had used a creamy moisture on top of the leave-in.In addition, I'm not a fan of waxes so I could have passed on the Emulsifying and Candelilla waxes.
If you are fan of butters, I ask that you give the product a try for yourself because we all know that different heads of hair thrive on different things.
