I love Shea butter and always incorporate it in my DIY recipes. I’ve had my eye on Aviela for a while…

Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on their hair butter.

For best results apply and leave in hair for 30 minutes or more before shampooing, or apply after washing hair for a great conditioning effect.
The cold winter really takes a toll on my hair so I like to use more deeply nourishing products. The consistency is just right and easy to work with, it gently melts on contact. The scent is lovely, lemongrass really comes through with undertones of lavender.
I like to use it as a pre-poo, I apply a little amount on damp hair working it through my entire hair, concentrating on my ends which are dry. I leave it in for 30 minutes and then shampoo.
I also apply a small amount to style my hair, a little goes a long way and it doesn’t leave my hair greasy or weighed down. It helps protect my hair from the cold and my hair stays moisturised and hydrated for days!
