My 6¢: Ok, I wanted to try Qhemet for the longest time but always held back because 1) I felt the shipping to Canada was prohibitive and 2) I knew it contained sulphur in the form of MSM and since I have a sulphur allergy I wasn’t sure how I would react to it.  The first time I visited the Toronto Honeyfig, I wanted to try it but they only carried the large sizes and I wasn’t about to dish out so much money for a product I wasn’t sure I would like.  Luckily they gave me a sample of the Qhemet Alma Heavy cream.  I applied it daily to my scalp only because it is true to it’s name i.e. heavy but it left my new growth soft and manageable and I mean very soft!  That was my cue to try some of the other Qhemet products so I ordered 2 sample sizes of the Burdock Root Butter Cream.

When I first opened the Burdock Root Butter Cream container I was a little skeptical because the product appears quite stiff in the jar i.e. you can turn the jar upside down and it will stay in the jar.  The cream (which has a light citrusy fragrance) has the consistency of a Jello vanilla pudding and even though one of it’s core ingredient is olive oil, it is not greasy at all!  It is perfect for relaxed hair because it is practically weightless and it will not leave your hair greasy or limp .  It practically dissolves into my hair and leaves my hair soft and supple but unlike the Alma Heavy Cream I do not have to restrict the Burdock Root Cream to my roots.  I feel comfortable massaging the Burdock Root Butter Cream throughout my hair without fear of  a tacky, greasy aftermath.    I rotate between using the Burdock Cream and Wave Nouveau.  I find that that combination works for me.  The only con I can find with this product (besides the price lol) is that my hair does not feel super moisturized when I use it, but once the comb glides through my hair effortlessly I know it’s all good.   I’m hanging onto this product.

Oh btw, my sulphur sensitivity does not apply to this product so I’m happy 🙂

Wow Factor: (4/5)

  1. I just got this yesterday. I really like the smell, its very light. I was looking for a moistrizing product that contained little to nooils because my hair doesnt respond well to oils and I hate the feeling of them im my hair. They always feel greasy to me no matter how sparingly i use them on wet or dry hair. Well i used this on the nape of my neck (my hair gets pretty dry there)on clean dry hair & it spread very easily absorbing instantly leaving my hair soft & moisturized. I didnt have to use much at all just a very thin layer. A few hours later im touching the hair and its not greasy at all. Had this been even slightly greasy i would not use it ever again regardless of if it made my hair soft & moisturized. So, i say i love this for my 4something (not really sure but i do have nice pencurls some bigger than others all over my head). Ill use this up and probably buy it again:)
