Product Review - Sister's Keeper (So Chic Styling Butter)

Ok Kinkies.  So you may have already seen my review on Sister's Keeper's Hair & Body Souffle.  If you missed it, you can read it here --> Kinky's Product Review of Sister's Keeper Hair & Body Souffle.  In that review, I did mention that I would also be reviewing their So Chic Styling Butter.  So, without further ado...
What's In Sister's Keeper's So Chic Styling Butter?
Brazilian nut butter, shea butter, coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, castor oil, quinoa oil and fragrance oil as an option.

What's your first impression of  So Chic Styling Butter Kinky? I think that it did great on our twists.  I had tried it on my daughter's hair a few weeks back, as I was teaching myself to flat two-strand twist, and I was pleased with the results.  As for me and my hair, I recently used it and again was pleased.  The styling butter was applied to our wet hair, which was shampooed using a shampoo bar that was previously reviewed.

So chic styling butter is smooth, it is not as thick as some pomades and other butters that I have used.  Also,  it isn't whipped.  The best way for me to describe is by comparing it to actual butter that has been sitting out at room temperature.  It is a bit soft yet solid, but not a firm solid.  As for the scent, think of cinnamon... it kind of reminds me of the gum 'Big Red.'  As I did not request for scent to be added, I believe that this may be the normal scent of the styling butter.

Here are the pictures of my daughter's hair styled with the So Chic Styling Butter...
Her held up pretty well and lasted for a week.  

As for my hair, I did not like the results, to no fault of the actual product.  I had attempted a twist-out and it resulted in a twist 'ouch.'  Here's a picture of my hair with the twist-out.  Although I did not like how my hair came out, I did want to show how conditioned my hair look after using the styling butter.  It definitely sealed in the moisture!!
I tried to save my hair and do some twists in the front and back with a bun in the middle...  
As you can see, my twists were really defined and set well.  They also had a bit of sheen/shine to them.  
In my opinion, this product works best on wet/damp hair.
Here are the twists on the back of my hair... I started to separate them for a bit of fullness.
All in all, the So Chic Styling Butter wasn't a disappointment.  If you want to use it to lay your edges down, I would recommend that you dampen your hair, put on the styling butter, and then use your satin and/or silk scarf to tie it down either overnight or while you get dressed.  Using this product on dry hair won't really be effective.

The thing that I like best about Sister's Keeper products is that they are not made from just the normal shea butter, jojoba oil, castor oil, glycerin, etc., they have a few other 'exotic' butters and great oils that aren't found in some of the other products that I have seen and/or reviewed.  I even found myself using the access styling butter left on my hands as a skin butter, rubbing it into my arms and hands, despite it being made for hair.

Given the results as above, I'm even more interested in using the remaining Hair & Body Souffle on my hair... I'm sure it would work great.

  1. Thanks for this review! I've recently learned of Sister's Keeper and really like their use of mango butter in some of their products. Also, their pricing is so affordable. Your review has propelled me to make the leap and buy some their products. :)
