Did I say I love this product? The texture is a creamy, sunshine orange hue with a delicious mango smell. If that’s not enough, it works incredibly well when it comes to lightly moisturizing the hair and providing a soft styling hold. Did I mention the lovely fragrance? Every time I open Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter, I am greeted with a tangy mango aroma. I can’t get enough of it! Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter works expertly with the Burdock Root Butter Cream and Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee in creating bouncy twist outs and soft, bushy afro puffs.

Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter (for my hair) is…

  • A great oil based moisturizer (oh-so light & creamy)
  • Excellent for creating soft hold for twist outs & afro puffs
  • 100% Vegan ingredients
  • Moisturizing for thick, kinky hair (especially during warmer months)

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Mango Butter and Oil Blend, Behenyl Esters, Cetyl Alcohol, Soy Extract, Plant Wax, Phthalate Free Fragrance.

Price: $14.00

Size: 5oz

Claim: Use this thick, rich butter to soften and maintain twists, braids and loose hair! Ideal for dry, highly porous hair! Use as a body butter too! Softens thick, extra dry hair with an ultra rich blend of Pure Olive Oil, Mango Butter and Rice Bran Oil! A touch of plant wax helps reduce frizz and smooths edges and soy extract adds humectancy. Use sparingly. A little goes a long way.  

Fragrance: It smells divine! The Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter has a mango tang. It smells very similar to the mango fruit. The fragrance fades slightly when applied to the hair strand.

Consistency/Color: The Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter is thick and creamy. When rubbed between the fingers, though, the product melts easily and smoothes onto the hair. The color is a bright orange like the color of a ripe mango.

Results: Overall, I think the Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter is a good choice for styling thick, kinky hair. It uses the perfect amount of oil mixed with mango butter to moisturize and add shine to the hair. I use the Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter along with the Burdock Root Butter Cream and the Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee to style my twist outs and afro puffs for long-lasting moisture during the Spring/Summer months. The Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter has replaced my Shea Butter mix in my regimen. I will definitely be repurchasing this product again!


I give this product 4 out of 5 sunstars!

** I ordered my Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter from Sage Naturalceuticals for 14.95 plus S&H. The price is roughly the same price as it would be if I ordered from Qhemet Biologics directly. The shipping was fast!
