Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment - Burt's Bees

This is the best pre-shampoo treatment out there! I like to leave it on longer than 15minutes (usually by accident though). I wet my hair, apply the balm, put on plastic shower cap (like the ones in hotels) and put a towel over the cap. This helps hold in heat and I feel it makes the balm sink in better. You can use this as a leave-in conditioner but I have not yet found the right about that works. A little goes a long way!

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.
