Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Promises: Our Burdock Root Butter Cream is a light, water based leave-in for fine haired naturals, straight styles and those looking for a light penetrating moisturizer. It conditions and softens while nourishing the scalp. Leaves hair healthy, soft and supple!

Directions: Rub a small to moderate amount between palms and distribute throughout wet, damp or dry hair. Leave in and style.

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Extracts of Burdock Root, Nettle and Oatstraw, MSM sulfur, Vegetable Glycerin, Wheat Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Vitamin E, Lactic Acid, Maltodextrin, Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin, Essential Oil Blend.

The Truth: I've been using Burdock Root for a little over a month now and I must say that it's a great "protein/silicone-free" moisturizer. It actually softens and moisturizes my hair so well without a greasy weighed down feeling. What I love most about this moisturizer, is that it has a perfect blend of some of my favorite ingredients i.e. Glycerin, Wheat, Fatty Alcohols, Stearalkonium Chloride etc. all working together to combat dryness and breakage. It has a very creamy texture but easily dissolves into the hair once applied. You don't need a lot of product to get the job done, it's very concentrated. The "citrus-y" scent kind of reminds me of lemons, however, the smell doesn't linger in the hair for too long. I've tried this moisturizer on wet, damp and dry hair and I must say that it's phenomenal for braid out's when done on wet/damp hair. The next day your hydrated waves will have a fierce pop with added softness & shine. I love it.

Tips: Great for baggying, braid outs, twist outs, buns and straight styles!

  1. I have been lusting after Qhemet products for some years now. There shipping does not appeal to me though. Maybe I will give it a try.
    Thanks for the review.

  2. I use the Alma and Olive Oil heavy cream and I am in LOVE....It melts my 12 weeks worth of new growth as if my hair is freshly relaxed. The burdock root cream was recommended for my fine 4a-4b strands b/c it is lighter, but I love the consistency of the AOOHC! I will be buying the burdock root cream to use on my freshly relaxed hair, and the heavy cream on my 6 week post relaxed hair. Their products are sooo good that it had me thinking about transitioning to natural ( which I PLAN on doing years from now) just b/c it made my new growth super soft and manageable. I will be buying every product from them ( except the cleansing tea b/c of the not so good review) and just cant wait! They are having a a great sale BTW- 20% OFF ON NOV 27TH only- I WILL be getting it then.....These products are a must-have for stretchers or transitioners.....be prepared to wait a little for your order as they make their batches in small quantities ( it's a faster turnaround than Oyin handmade for comparison). These products are also great for wanting to switch to all natural ingredients!

  3. I absolutely love this product too! Like you said it's non greasy and does an excellent job of moisturizing my thirst craving hair. It is on the pricey side and shipping to Canada is no joke when Honeyfig is out of stock, but it does last a while so I jusify the price. I will definitely be checking out the sale on Nov 27th (already have it marked in my calendar)! Lol.

  4. Thanks ladies for your input. I will look out for the Amla Heavy Creme but It's always out of stock :-(

  5. Great review. I'll have to add this to my wishlist. I actually am a fine hair 4a/4b so I'll look into this. Thanks for posting.
