    1. Yes, many of them can be used on the skin as well. Don't use any that call for gel or conditioner, though.

  6. Can you use the butters in the winter?! Especially the ones that have coconut oil since the butter hardens when it gets cold again?! What butter you use in your hair comes winter

    Merci beaucouP

    1. Yes, you can. The butter (and coconut oil) can easily be melted in your hands. Just take a bit and rub in between your hands. It will melt.

      In the winter, I use shea butter mixed with olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and aloe vera gel. :o)
