I am a 30 year old African American female with relaxed hair. My hair prior to using the avocado butter was pretty healthy, it stops pass my shoulders and hits my bra strap. I tried the avocado butter at the recommendation of a friend whose mother does consultations for natural hair care issues. I was hesitant at first because my hair is not natural but figured it was worth a shot.

The first time I used it on my hair I wet my hair as stated and applied the product in sections to minimize breakage and to ensure the product was spread evenly throughout. I have to tell you I HATED the way it felt; greasy, goopy, just ewww. I put a shower cap on and wrapped my hair in a scarf. I left it on overnight and went to my regular weekly appointment at the salon the next morning. Once my hair was blown straight I admit I loved the results but didn't attribute them to the product (like I stated before my hair looked pretty good already). The real test was how my hair would look as I inched closer to my next touch up.

So far, I have used the product for 2 months now and I KNOW it's the avocado butter and nothing else since I have since eliminated my weekly deep conditioners due to my results. My hair has never been so shiny and smooth. I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to get my hair washed without this stuff. I don't wet my hair (I only did that the first time I used it), I apply it in sections onto my dry hair and scalp, pin it up, put on my shower cap and wrap it in a scarf and leave on overnight. Because of the heat from the shower cap and the scarf, your hair will feel wet anyway. I leave the product, shower cap, ect on until right before I'm about to wash it. Wash hair as normal and roller set. After the roller are taken out and my hair blown out, I have shiny, silky and beautiful hair every time. I truly thought the results would fade after time but actually the opposite happened. My scalp is healthier, dandruff a thing of the past and my hair is stronger than ever before. My beautician even commented on how much shinier and smoother my hair is ( she thinks it's the shampoo I'm using but I know what it really is.

Yes the overnight process isn't fun but its sooooo worth it.

I wanted to like this product, but it just doesn't work with my fine, shoulder length hair. I followed instructions, used it before shampoo on wet hair, and my hair was a hot mess afterwards. It dried out my ends and left my roots greasy. This would probably work best for thick and/or curly hair. I haven't tried it as a pomade, but I will not be purchasing this again.

Just used this product today for the first time in years, it was too greasy for my non-color treated hair or I misread the directions but today my hair look fabulous, shiny, healthy, and soft.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment, 4.3 oz:

    I apply a small amount of this product working it into my hair a few minutes before I shampoo. I use this product about once every week or ten days.

    It adds vibrance and luster and health to my hair. I really like this product. I have used it for several years and have not purchased any other product.

    I have no complaints and would recommend it to others.

    I like Burt's bees products except for this one. The smell is just too unpleasant to deal with. I try to use natural products as much as possible, but at the same time I want my shower time to be relaxing. This smell ruins it.

        Loved it! When it first came out of the tube i was a little skeptical because it reminded me of mashed wheat grass, but i used the suggested amount (1tablespoon) on my thick (3c/4a) wet (spray bottle) Hair and it got the job done. Before i even finished detangeling with the product in my hair, it was re-defining my curl patters and looked beautiful. After co-washing my hair i could see a difference in shine frizz and texture, and i like the smell, very subtle. i finished off my rutien with TIGI Love, Peace & The Planet Let It Be Leave-In Conditioner. Bother are most defiantly keepers for MY hair.

        This hair mask really adds a lot of shine to my hair, which is impressive. A lot of masks moisturize, but leave my hair looking dull. Not so with this one. It can be a little hard to spread, since it's so thick and comes before shampooing, but the results are worth it. I have yet to find a hair mask that conditions more deeply than this.

            I use this daily as a mousse and this product is the best I have ever used. It keeps my hair healthy and shinny.

            I read somewhere that since it was meant as a treatment that if you slather it on, cover it up and then do something outside such as gardening, cleaning, running, etc. The heat and sweat can really activate it.

            Green Goo is the only way to describe this product. It makes your hair very soft, but it smells digusting and it's hard to get out of the tube. I use this on my hair and hair extensions every couple of weeks. My hair and the human extension are very easy to comb out. I am satisfied with the soft, silky results. This is getting very expensive for the amount of goo you receive...

              Comments about Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment, 4.3 oz:

              I am African American with relaxed hair, and I have been using conditioner before shampooing my hair for years. This product is the best I've ever used! I apply a little oil to my hair before applying the Burt's Bees to make the application process easier. I keep it on 20 minutes or longer and then shampoo. My hair is shiny, manageable, and extremely moist. It has really helped my dry hair during the cold winter months. I will continue to use this on a weekly basis.

              I love this product, is very good for my hair and it helps a lot with the frizz. I have a problem with frizz products because my hair is fine, so anything can make it greassy and heavy. The trick with this product is to apply it when your hair is wet right out of the shower, prior to towel drying it. If you do that, then you can spread it and you may towel dry, comb and then scrunch for a wavy hold, then use light-blow dry with continous scrunching motion or you may just air dry. It give shine and health to my hair!
