If you have curly or oily coarse hair types, a hair butter is an excellent hair product if you want to go natural with your hair. Thicker in consistency than hair oil, a natural plant-based hair butter is an excellent product for styling, freshening a hair style, or repairing damaged hair.
Coconut oil, a great natural moisturizer for the scalp and hair, nourishes dry and brittle hair, encourages healthy hair growth. A rich source of fatty acids, evening primrose oil promotes blood flow, hydrates, flattens the hair cuticle and helps clear clogged pores, which in turn reduces hair loss. Dry oils like coconut and evening primrose are very light and penetrate deeply.

For Dry Hair
The most important thing about using a hair butter is to make sure it is distributed evenly. Sectioning your hair into layers, a top and bottom layer, can make distribution easier. The thicker or coarser your hair the more layers you may need.
Place a small tiny pea size amount of butter into your palms and rub your palms and fingers together.
Rake your hands and fingers through your hair like a comb to evenly distribute the oil through to the ends.
Follow the same procedure for each layer section of hair.
For most people it is recommended to avoid applying oils or butters on the scalp. So begin at least about three inches from the scalp and work all the way to the ends.
Whether or not to oil your scalp seems to be up for debate. While many articles encourage applying oil directly to your scalp, others state that applying oil directly on your scalp may put you at higher risk for dandruff. But some people with dry hair also have a dry scalp. If you typically oil your scalp without any problems then continue to do what your hair and scalp like.
For Dry Scalp
Using your fingertips gently massage a small amount of hair balm into your scalp. The massaging action aids in the absorption. Leave on for at least 15 minutes and then wash and style as usual.
For an intensive hair treatment: Wrap buttered hair in a warm towel for 30 minutes or longer. Wash and style as usual.
Use a leave in conditioner after shampooing to help prevent split ends, calm frizz and flyaways and add a healthy shine. Place a small amount of butter in the palm of your hand, rub palms together and scrunch into hair ends only or smooth over the length of your hair and comb thoroughly to evenly distribute the butter.
Use on damp hair before styling to protect and condition.
Use on dry hair as a leave in condition.
