Shea Butter is excellent for use on hair and skin.  Shea Butter in the natural form is thick, however, we use a whipping process for unrefined shea butter (keeps all the medicinal qualities) which makes it light and fluffy and easy to apply.  Think "heavy whipped cream." - Very spreadable.  Also, when it's whipped the scent is not as noticeable.  We have great fragrances that "compliment" the natural smell.  Almond Joy is one of my favorites!

The Benefits

Here are some of its chief benefits for using shea butter on the scalp:
• Shea butter provides moisture to dry and damaged hair from the roots to the tips, leaving it healthy and shiny. Because it's rich in vitamins A and E, shea butter soothes dryness, repairs breakage, and mends split ends.
• Shea butter absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp without clogging pores, leaving a greasy residue, or causing a buildup of oil or dandruff.
• Shea butter helps heal a variety of scalp problems, including dry scalp, psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.
• Shea butter protects hair from weather damage caused by wind, humidity, and extreme dryness, and repairs such damage.
• Because it's rich in moisture and can shield against harmful ultraviolet radiation, shea butter protects hair from sun damage.
• If your hair has endured chemical treatments, hot irons, and blow-dryers, shea butter can restore its moisture and vitality.
Look for 100 percent natural shea butter, with the American Shea Butter Institute quality product seal, and warm it in a pan set over boiling water. Let it cool for a bit, then massage it into your scalp and leave it in your hair for 30 minutes or more. Do this at least once a week and you may quickly see a transformation in your hair — from being damaged, dull, itchy, and lifeless to looking healthy, shiny, and silky!

Elaine what do you use now?


Shea Butter is full of minerals, vitamins, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, shea butter's benefits for hair are many. Its anti-inflammatory properties heal damaged scalp and help clear any infections. It works well against dandruff too. It can do wonders for hair that has been damaged by excessive coloring and blow-drying. It also helps to de-stress hair that has been affected for too long by pollution. Damaged and brittle hair can be conditioned and revitalized by its moisturizing properties. It soothes and softens dry hair. As shea butter is light and non-greasy, it can also be applied as a leave-in for hair. This will help to shield hair by locking or concealing the moisture in. Besides being great for dry hair, it helps to nourish normal hair and it's non-greasy, easy spread property helps to control excess moisture in oily hair. Using shea butter for hair growth is not unknown, due to its rejuvenating minerals and vitamins.


In terms of locs, shea butter can be used to loc the hair and for general maintainence it can be combined with other oils, such as almond oil, to liquify the texture for haircare, otherwise it won't 

collect dirt or get caught in your locs.


Thank you for your comment and please share your experience if you decide to use shea butter on your locs. For more information take a look at

I have not used shea butter on my hair because I am afraid that it will get caught in my locs and collect dirt.
