I received my JBCO pure butter today and the consistency is more of a pomade than a grease, like I’ve seen in some YouTube reviews. Is this normal?

also has anyone tried melting it and adding stuff to it? Does it whip?

tagging @Neomorph cus I know you love this stuff lol

The consistency issue is one of the big downsides of the JBCO pure butter. The one thing that keeps it from being a perfect product. I've only tried the normal and lavender one and I noticed the normal one is the most consistent, a heavy vaseline/pomade feeling to it. It's not like the softee or blue magic greases it's far heavier. As long as what is in the jar doesn't look pale grey it's fine...that stuff is just too hard and tacky and doesn't melt or whip down.

I have a pic of some jars I had...the one on the right was no good but the other two were fine.

Interesting, thanks. I bought the original and found the scent really strong so I actually melted my jar completely down and added 1/4tsp of fragrance oil. Didn’t do much for the smell but the texture is now indestinguishable from grease and I absolutely love it lol. The pomade texture worked better as an edge control so I may just buy another jar and use them both :laugh:

edit:: I really couldn’t stand the smell of it so I melted it down again and added some peppermint essential oil and ordered a 2 pack of the lavender version lol. Glad I learned how to manipulate the consistency to my liking though

My jar is unfortunately the pale grey looking one. Super tacky. I tried melting it down but that didn't help a bit.

Have you tried thinning it with a carrier oil? I did this unintentionally when I melted it down and added about 1/4tsp of fragrance oil (not an essential oil, just a scented carrier oil).
Or does your jar not melt at all?

Been using BB Castor oil with rosemary all week until I ran out as part of the LOC method. Now using Sunny in Denbigh Herbal Growth Oil. Will use it as a prepoo tonight too. I also greased my hair 3x this week with Sunny in Denbigh Healthy Hair Butter.

I will be washing my hair tomorrow, I'm currently back on my Dominican Hair Care kick:

Rinse with hot water and detangle with some Aussie Conditioner

Wash with Capilo Suela y Canela Shampoo

DC with Apretadora Treatment (or maybe SM Manuka Honey Mask) and let it sit for an hour.

Style with Creme de Pentear & Ampro Olive Oil Gel

Seal with Blue Magic grease and air-dry. I apply grease to my scalp on day 2-3 when I go back into a bun until next wash day.
