Product Review – Earthtones Naturals Curl Quench™ Hair Butter

If you recall when I removed my locs, I have been in search of my Hair Niche. Since then I have tried some great products, and have found some keepers. This means I may or may not be purchasing any new products……. *crickets*. Here are previous reviews:

So next up is Earthtones Naturals Curl Quench Hair Butter. Earthtones Naturals is a company that I didn’t know about previously, then we saw a crowd at their booth at the Toronto Natural Hair & Beauty Show and ventured over. Qu’est-ce que c’est, we wondered?

Earthtones Naturals

We were happy to find out it was a Canadian company (founded by Naturopathic Dr, Susan Walker) and there were quite a few products to try (from oils to moisturizers to styling gels). After a small demonstration by the sales associate, we settled on the Curl Quench Hair Butter. But leme tell you, just the smell of their Coconut Hair Milk was to die for. I may have to invest in that! Oh… did I say I wouldn’t be getting anything new? Well – this is awkward…..

Anyway, I digress…

Ingredients

Purified water (yeah!), Aloe vera juice, Glycerin, Conditioning emulsifier, Sal Butter, Illipe Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Cetyl alcohol, Olive Oil, Panthenol, Silk Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Oats, Fragrance, Paraben-free preservative.

Texture

It reminds me of butter but just a bit thicker because it’s creamy.

Smell

There isn’t a distinct or overwhelming smell that accompanies many hair products (I actually really appreciate that) but it smells… Well…. like butter but sweeter. It has a nice, light scent.

How I used it

The first few times that I’ve used this, I applied to my damp hair for added moisture before styling. I decided to try it as a styler for curl definition and twisted/bantu knotted my freshly co-washed and deep conditioned hair.

Overall Impression

I used the hair butter a few nights in a row and at first I didn’t achieve the curl definition I had desired and gotten with previous products, but that just means it’s not for styling my hair type. After a couple of days the definition was better. I would however much prefer to continue using it as a moisturizer since it without a doubt keeps my hair soft and manageable. So, it was in no way a wasted purchase. Here are some pics for reference:

  1. Hi Iive in uk and import these products for myself. Ive found that if you use the hair butter followed by either the styling twisting cream or the gel (I use styling creme in winter and gel in summer) I have perfectly defined curls and my hair is soft and I am a 5 days a week exerciser. I habe 4b hair. Its eprfect for the cold damp winters and the wet summers we get in tthe UK
