Review: Kera Care Natural Textures Butter Cream



Promises
Everyday Moisturizer. A moisture locking soufflé that not only hydrates curls and coils, but also employs  Lanolin plus Argan, Abyssinian and Castor natural oils to achieve proper natural oil and moisture (lipophilic) balance. Hair becomes amazingly smooth and the Amla & Shikakai Botanicals enhance the shine of the hair. Promotes healthy hair growth.

Directions 
1. Apply sparsely or generously based on the hair’s need for moisture, manageability and vitality.
2. Rub between palms and scrunch onto hair gently so that curls & coils are not disturbed.
3. Also may be used to set soft lustrous twists and twist-outs.
4. May be used daily.

Verdict 
During my relaxer days, Kera Care was my go-to range of products. My mother and I used the products religiously. When I started transitioning to natural I had to break with my beloved products because they were too light for my hair. A little bit down the line and they've created a 'Natural Textures' range *dances*. My bestie bought me the Kera Care Butter Cream and then started using it because I took too long to collect it  *side eye*... After using a substantial amount she decided she found it too oily and gave it to the intended recipient, me! 

texture/consistency
I like this product but I am not in love with it. It is a little bit too heavy for me to use as an everyday moisturiser so I use it a styler instead. It smells lovely, It's not a familiar smell nor is it a natural smell but I like it. The consistency is like a cream and glides through the hair with ease. It does set lustrous twist outs with excellent shine, in my next post you'll be able to see for yourself. It has the PH level on the container which is 5.5, in line with the natural PH level of hair and skin, impressive. However, despite this it doesn't quite pack a punch. It doesn't hydrate my hair as much as Shea Moisture hair milks. Like my friend, I too find this product too oily. It leaves an oil type film on my hair, preventing my hair from absorbing products well afterwards. For those who frequently wash/co-wash their hair, this may not be a problem for you. I wash my hair every 10-14 days and I find myself wanting to wash my hair sooner whenever I use this product. This product retails for approx. £8.99 in UK and can be found in most hair shops, normally behind the counter. Is it worth the price? In my opinion, no. Would I purchase again, probably not but I will explore the other products in the range. 


Have you tried this product or any products in the Natural Textures range?
