Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment

This is a great hair treatment (not a traditional conditioner). There are a few things that should be noted however for best results. The texture of this product is greasy and thick, which made it ideal for my thick hair. It is a pre-shampoo treatment - meant to be applied BEFORE you shampoo and condition your hair. I loved using this every week or so to give my hair a rest from blow drying, when I let my hair dry naturally. I applied about 1 1/2 inches (it comes out of the tube like toothpaste) to my damp hair, combed it through with a wide tooth comb (sometimes I then twisted it into a low bun), and then let it dry naturally. When it was dried I was very happy with my frizz free waves which were not sticky, oily or weighed down. My hair was shiny, soft and felt really conditioned and healthy. I also love that it’s 99% natural. This also worked well for me as a leave-in styling aid. I only used a nickel-size amount on my dry hair and the results were fantastic (more than that and it did feel a little greasy). At first it didn't seem like my hair was absorbing it very well and it felt a little greasy. After a few minutes though, my hair felt really soft and was much less poofy and frizzy and remained that way all day. Editor’s Note: This is not for use with thin or oily hair.

The balm is just that - it's heavier than a serum, but not quite a cream. After washing my hair I applied 1 or 2 pumps (no more than that!) into the palm of my hands and added it from the mid-length to the ends of my (very wet) hair, sectioning my hair with clips as I went along. I loved the crisp, fresh citrus scent of the balm as well. My hair was super shiny, smooth and soft after blowing it out. I had great definition and control and what the balm gave me was straighter hair that still had some of the body from my natural waves, which is the effect that I was going for. This also gave me awesome frizz control during the day and even traveling in more humid climates. In addition, I also found that I could use this to "loosen up" my waves by just using the serum and then air drying my hair, which was nice. Again, my hair remained silky smooth, bouncy and frizz free as well. I never felt like the balm was weighing my hair down or giving me build up. I also loved using a small amount of this to tame flyaways after a plane flight or before going out at night. This is a great product from a terrific line and worth every penny
