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!

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.

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.

*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.


  1. I looove it!
    I've been using it as a body butter and I feel sexy every time i wear it :)

  2. I'm intrigued. I don't like waxes either but it does sound like what I've been looking for. I'll have to check it out.

  3. This product is a staple for me. Actually, I like the whole Darcy line.

  4. This product is the bomb! I just used it on my hair and I might add a little goes a long way more people should use this line, it reminds of miss jessie's products before she went mainstream. Loves it!

  5. I love hair butters so I definitely will give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Mmmm, this stuff smells good to me! A little goes a long way and I didn't pay attention to that the first time I used it. I put a healthy amount on my hair... and my hair felt so oily after. So that was user error. The next time I used it, I was careful to not put as much on. I used it as a light moisturizer on my damp hair, then I proceeded to style my hair in twists. My hair was not as oily (great)and it smelled nice. It's not to hold my hair, so I think I will use it to pull my hair back in a puff next time. I had to use additional product for hold. It's nice on my hair... I little heavy, but that can be alleviated if you don't use a lot.
