Jumping on the Bandwagon

So back in July, I went and picked up Burt Bee's Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo treatment. It was getting rave reviews from a couple of my favorite ladies so I figured hey why not. The 1st time I used it I wasn't impressed, the gooey viscosity mixed with my dry hands and hair just felt like a sticky mess. Of course, my slowness didnt make me think to add water! I sat with it for a while, kept feeling my hair of course and thought it was just okay, didn't see the big deal. When it was time for me to wash my hair I began to see the excitement over this. As I was rinsing my hair under the water it felt soft and silky, really nice. I decided that I would use up the bottle but I wasn't sure if I would repurchase as the application process was, well, annoying. My next use the same, application...not good but the rinse was great. Here's where things changed. I felt compelled to take it on vacay out of convenience, no mixing of oils, EO's, etc. My common sense kicked in when I applied it on wet hair. Oh okay, I'm really feeling this now. Totally different feel, just glided right on, duh why didn't I think of this before. I then turned the tube around and read the instructions and whaddya kno! Your SUPPOSED to apply it to wet hair. Double duh. I guess this is why instructions were created. Needless to say I HAVE repurchased, I like it alot, although something still stops me from loving it even though I continue to buy it ((on my 3rd tube)). However it's convenient, effective and 99.33% natural and I will say this, I gain more respect for it with each use.

  1. I have ben searching ALL of Toronto for this product with no luck....did you buy online? If so, where?

  2. Yeah it took me a WHILE to find this product. I got it from an Ulta Beauty Supply store in my neighborhood. Good

  3. I'm glad you gave it a second chance before giving up. Burt's Bees now has a permanent spot in my pre-poo step. I don't mind it on dry hair but you're right, on moistened hair, it's even easier to apply.
