Product Review - Pooka Pure & Simple

Hey Kinkies.  I'm back with another review.  (The kinky crowd goes wild).  This time I'm reviewing two products from Pooka Pure & Simple, which is located here in NJ!  Given that she's in my hometown, this made me even more excited to review this product (not to mention the recent feature in Black Enterprise magazine!!)
What's In Pooka Pure & Simple's Products?
Nectar Hair Oil & Treatment: Avocado oil, olive oil, rosemary oil, lemon oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil fragrance, lavender buds, rosemary leaf, and lemon peel.
Shea 'n' Olive Hair Butter: Shea butter, olive oil, beeswax, rosemary oil, lavender oil, and fragrance.

What's your first impression of Pooka Pure & Simple Kinky?  Before I get into my thoughts, I want to comment on one thing that I don't usually comment on in most of my reviews - that is the packaging.  The inside of the package was filled with shredded paper and potpourri.  It also smelled soooo good and looked totally cute!  I wanted to comment on this as you can tell that effort was put into the packaging.

As for my thoughts, I love the Nectar for me and my daughter's scalp massages.  It was an excellent feeling of the oils penetrating my scalp!  As you will see in the picture below, the nectar was truly infused with lavender buds, rosemary leaf, and lemon peel.  The smell is also great.  
As for the Hair Butter, I liked it more on my daughter's hair (and her dad's) than I did on mine.  Don't get me wrong, it did aid in styling my hair; however, my hair was a little frizzy.  I'm not sure if that was on my part or not as I did detangle and try to comb through my hair with conditioner on it.  I do have some of the butter left and may retry using it as I'm not sure it was at the fault of the Hair Butter.  The 'beau' took the Hair Butter for himself to use (he has a low cut with waves) so I'm not sure I will get it back to re-review.  Yup, he just went on and claimed it and replaced it for another product that he was using.

Anyways, here are our pictures... Me and my daughter's hair was shampooed with an Ayurvedic shampoo bar that I have not reviewed.  I used the products on my daughter's air-dried hair, while it was used on my wet hair.  For my daughter's hair, I spritzed her hair with water and then applied the Hair Butter.  On my hair, I did the same for the parts that were dryer than I wanted them to be.  As for the Nectar, it was applied to directly to our scalps and used for the scalp massage prior to styling.  On a daily basis, I would spritz our hair and use the Hair Butter to seal in moisture.
 Front and back views...
As you can see, it worked really well on my daughter's hair.  On my hair, I did a few jumbo twists as I wanted to rock a big twist out.  Here's a few of my pictures...
I did not like the twist-out much (frizzy) so I pulled my hair into a puff...
Here's a bonus pic of the beau's waves while using the Hair Butter... the Hair Butter did NOT cause or enhance his waves.  They did; however, nourish them... I say this as I do not want someone to use this product and expect to have waves like his... sorry, won't happen!
Well that's my take on it.  I'm more excited about reusing the Nectar than the Hair Butter.  Again, if I can get my hands on it again, I will post an addendum to this post... the key word is 'if.'  There are a few other products that I am interested in trying from their skincare line.  If I do have an opportunity to do so, I will definitely keep you all posted.
