Rated 5 out of 5 by MarilynMN It's how you use it
I didn't know if I was going to love or hate this product when I read the reviews. I just bought this at the Mall of America where they have the larger size and I am writing this review because I want the Body Shop to keep this product because IT DOES work. The concept of "Hair Butter" was new to me so I spoke with the sales associate at the store on it's use. It's supposed to work like a hair treatment, comb it through your hair, be patient and rinse it out. How much you use will depend on length. I didn't understand from some of the other reviews that I read how this product could cause tangling, unless you just scooped this out and used it as a leave in conditioner. I don't believe this product is meant to be used that way. This product is temperature sensitive and will get a bit soft in a warm environment and I found I did not need to put that much product in my hair. For even distribution, I always keep a wide tooth comb in the shower and have a habit of combing product through my hair. For conditioners, I usually concentrate on making sure the ends are well saturated. This was not a heavy, greasy product and my hair felt well nourished. I usually let my hair air-dry, but even if I were to use a blow dryer, I believe this product would help in protecting my hair. My hair did not tangle, feel matted, look heavy, or flat. I have straight hair that will frizz up with a lot of humidity and my texture has changed as I have aged gracefully. This is a wonderful product that nourishes my hair and it is a cruelty free product, which also make me feel good about using it. I will probably use this product weekly and most likely repurchase in-store since the larger size is not on-line.

Ok so I don't actualy have coloured hair however I'm in a highly chlorinated pool 5 days a week and have what is called swimmers blonde. Where the chlorine has bleached the tips a lovely but very dry shade of blonde. I actually put this in my hair before I get in to teach and at the end of my shift use my usual shamp and con and hair feels and smells great! I buy the one for coloured hair because I can't stand the one that smells like play dough.

I really wanted to love this.
Unfortunately it made my usually easy-to-manage hair knotted and matted and incredibly difficult to style. My hair has this film of hard stickiness on it - not even flatironing helped smooth it out. I have tried it twice and am not even bothering to keep the tub - it's gone straight into the bin

I've never loved a product enough to write a review about it, but I feel compelled to tell everyone how much I love this hair butter.
All my life I've had thin, dull, useless hair... then I dyed it blonde which was a huge mistake because my hair pretty much turned into straw. Fast forward to two years later, and my hair is half blonde and half brunette as I'm waiting for all the blonde to grow out. I bought this butter on the recommendation of the sales associate at the store and after two weeks of using it 3-4 times a week... People are complimenting my hair for the first time in my life.
It completely revitalized my hair (I also use the Rainforest Volume Shampoo and the Rainforest Moisture Conditiioner) and made it touchably soft, shiny and beautiful. My split ends have been tamed and I actually let people touch my hair now!
I can't even put into words how happy I am with the results and it's boosted my self-esteem to no end. I seriously recommend this product as well as the other ones I've tried from the Rainforest line.
