A moisturizer is a water-based product. A leave-in conditioner is just another name for a hair moisturizer. If you look under ingredients you will see "water" or "aqua" as the main ingredient.
Water/aqua is an ingredient that you will not find in a hair butter. If a product calls itself a hair butter and you see aqua or water, it plain and simply is not a hair butter.
Under both the LOC and LCO method used to moisturize black hair:
- A hair butter is O (oil). Yes, even though it is solid it is O because a butter is just a solid oil.
- A moisturizer or leave-in conditioner is C (cream).
I teach how to make whipped hair butters and moisturizer in my Hair Product Academy.
