So what's the difference between our Cremes and Butters
BUTTER VS. CREME
One of the most frequently asked questions about our products is what is the difference between the hair and body butter and hair and body crème? Which one should I purchase and how do I use each? The main differences between our crèmes and butters are ingredients, texture and function. Simply put, one contains water (i.e. crème) and the other does not (i.e. butter).
WHAT IS THE HAIR AND BODY CRÈME?
The crèmes have a very thick luxurious consistency. What gives our crèmes the signature silky, creamy consistency is that they are water based. Since water-based products are key in promoting hydration and moisture in the hair and skin, this product is specifically formulated to be a key part of the hydration process.
WHAT IS THE HAIR AND BODY BUTTER?
Our butters are quite literally the texture of softened/whipped butter. Although the butter contains no water, it is the perfect product to seal in the moisture that the crème offers. Butters are not a moisturizer. Let me say that again for the folks in the back, butters and oils are not moisturizers. They are sealants which means they allow moisture to last longer if used before or after your crème or another water-based product.
HOW TO USE OUR HAIR AND BODY BUTTERS AND CRÈMES?
Two of the most effective methods for moisture retention for hair and skin are the LOC Method or LCO Method.
Alternatively, you may try the LCO method:
I will conclude by saying that the hair and body crème and the hair and body butter are very different but work beautifully together to support moisture retention.
