Second Life is made for dry hair and is especially good for coarse, kinked or frizzy hair. To apply, scoop a small amount of butter from the tin and rub between your fingers to melt. Then apply to hair and/or scalp. Can be used on wet or dry hair. Can be used like a leave-in conditioner. It only takes a small amount!
Ingredients: shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, orange essential oil
Q: Can you use heat products after applying the product?
I had Tammy try it out for me and report back the results:
I'm still trying it different ways (with heat protector, without, with mousse, without, etc.) but I have not had any adverse effects. No smoking, no bad smells, no damage to my hair [other then what I already had (:] and no damage to my flatiron. I'm really quite pleased. My oldest daughter was having a bad hair day with a lot of 'flyaways' and frizz, I told her to use just a touch of hair butter on it and she went to school smiling without a pony tail!
Hair Butter's History: Kristen became a mom for the 5th, 6th and 7th time when she and her husband added Samuel (age 2), Naomi (age 5) and Olivia (age 7) to their family... all the way from Ethiopia. Kristen invited her Facebook friends a sneak peak into the first few weeks as she told of the challenges of a toddler who was consistently able to climb out of his crib, the joy of learning to add yarn extensions to her daughter's hair, and the humor in watching her new children assume that a visiting African American could understand their native Amharic language. When I wanted a chance to try out my developing product on African hair, Kristen volunteered to try it and give me feedback. My husband christened the hair butter Second Life, both to celebrate the children and orphans who are given a chance to have a family, and to provide your dry hair the opportunity for a second life. After a few weeks of getting the hair butter just right, I videotaped Kristen applying it to her son's hair:
Second Life Hair Butter isn't just for African hair. In fact, it was a formula I used on my husband's and children's dry hair as a styling agent for months before testing on African hair. Here you can see the before and after effects of the butter on my own children's hair:
"I just wanted to let you know that we have been home from Ethiopia for almost two months with our beautiful son, Elijah. We use your Second Life Hair Butter on his hair daily. We love your product and how great it works with his adorable curls. Thank you!"
