PRODUCT REVIEW: Entwine Couture Exotiqüe Butter-Crème Hydrator
Have you ever bought a product because you'd heard such great reviews about it, but then it totally doesn't work for you? Well, that's what happened to me with the Entwine Couture Exotiqüe Butter-Crème Hydrator. I am a nappy, 4 type hair girl and I'd heard that it worked nothing less than a miracle on my hair type in terms of moisturizing. Here's the description:
This riche, lightweight, luxurious hydrating and growth crème moisturizer is a must have for all natural, transitioning, or relaxed hair. It is artfully crafted with exotic natural butters and supple oils from around the world to pamper & indulge your dry, thirsty tresses.
Ingredients: Balsamic Butter-OylTM Blend* of: (Shorea Stenoptera Seed (Illipee) Butter, Indica angifera (Mango) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Punica granatum (Pomegranate) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil Fruit Extract, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene and Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer), Water, Glycerin, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth-20, Dimethicone, Behentrimonium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Polysorbate 80, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ceteareth-25, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-32, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, PEG-75 Lanolin, Fragrance, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil and BHA and BHT, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydantoin
Ingredients in English: Illipee Butter, Mango Seed Butter, SHea Butter, Pomegranate Oil, Palm Fruit Oil, Avocado Oil Extract, Safflower Seed Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Stabilizing Emollient,Water, Gylcerin, Synthetic Oil, Silicone-based polymer,Fatty Alcohol,Chemical Defrizzer and emulsifier, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Chemical, Chemical, Panthenol (protein), Antimicrobal Chemical, Chemical Emollient, Chemical Binder, Fragrance, Corn Oil, Antioxidant/Preservative, Preservative, Antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative
RESULTS: I think that it's too water based or too much protein or too chemically for what my hair looks for in a butter. I used it on damp hair to moisturize, but I never got that ooh my hair is so moisturized and elongated feeling that others have reported. Maybe it was user error, maybe it's just not right for ME.
PRODUCT REVIEW: Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter &
Black Vanilla Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner
So, since that didn't float my boat I was looking for another moisturizer STAT! And because I wanted something a little more sophisticated than my mix of V05 Conditioner and Water in my spray bottle I was also looking for a spray leave in. Because I was wary of buying something new and unknown online I decided to hit up my town's new Ulta and go to the Carol's Daughter aisle. I decided to buy the Healthy Hair Butter (a new product to me) and an old standby the Black Vanilla Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner.
RESULTS: These two products ended up being the one-two punch my hair needed for moisture and shine! I used them in conjunction with each other doing my nighttime twists a second time and the results were more defined and moisturized with this combination. I may have just found my HOLY GRAIL of styling products. My hair also stayed moisturized for DAYS afterwards! I also used this combo today and will post pictures later this week of my results!
