Dear Gracie,
Thank you for your email, please read the below response from our research and development team;

“When used as a hair butter this product is generally left on for a while then washed off. However if your hair is naturally very curly and / dry it may benefit from having some of the butter scrunched in and left on. Very little would be needed at any one time.”

Kind Regards

The Aromantic Team

Does the high percent of oils and butters not weigh the hair down in this recipe?
