I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

Product Review: Ade Vegan 'CocoShealoe Husky Hair Butter'

Hey Guys,

This post is a product review of a brand I stumbled across on Alex's Blog. She had great things to say about Ade Vegan so I decided to give the brand a try. I purchased the 'CocoShealoe Husky Hair Butter' in the Vanilla bean and Rose Petal Scent from Ade Vegan . I communicated with Miss Tonya, the owner of the store, ahead of time because I was curious about her brand, and she answered all the questions I had. I had to wait a few weeks before I could place my order because Miss Tonya had just ordered in some supplies but she contacted me as soon as her products became available so I could purchase.

Product Description from Website:
"A rich medley of nourishing butters and healing oils for thick, dry, or damaged strands. This cream works wonders to soften thick, tightly curly hair textures. Also works great as a moisturizing base for prepping twists, plaits, or puffs.

Key Ingredients for sealing in moisture Include:

Shea Butter
Aloe Butter
Soy Butter
Cocoa Butter
Mango Butter
Silk Amino Acids

Shea Butter, soy butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, aloe butter, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, Castor oil, oat oil, silk amino acids, honey powder, vitamin E"



  • I love the scent of the product, the vanilla bean is not too overpowering and it still has some of the nutty smell of Shea butter
  • The product is very light
  • I had very little build up after using the product
  • Great for twists, twist-outs or just sealing in moisture
  • I also tried it out on my skin.. and it was very moisturizing
  • The owner is very personable and took time out to answer all my question
  • Shipping was fast, and the packaging is simple and nice

  • It is a bit pricey, the 8oz goes for $25

Final Thoughts:

I absolutely love this hair butter, it is rich, light, and very moisturizing. Although it is a bit pricey, a little goes a long way, and I have been using my 4oz for a couple of months and I haven't yet used up to a quarter. I will definitely be re-purchasing and trying out different scents. This is now a staple styling hair butter in my regimen, and I definitely recommend for anyone who wants a rich, moisturizing styling butter.

Note* I have only used the vanilla bean scent.

Three Strand Twist-Out Hawk!!

Hey Guys,

I tried the three strand twist-out after seeing the definition achieved by one of my ladies on my Instagram!!
I am also trying out a new product ..a review will be coming up soon. I twisted on freshly washed and conditioned hair using the Eden Body Work Peppermint leave-in conditioner, I twisted using my Donna Marie twisting cream (the scent is like cake icing and the texture is like fluffy frosting... delicious) and I sealed using a new product Creme of Nature Moroccan Argan oil which smells lovely.

The definition is crazy
