If you are finding yourself overwhelmed with remembering which ingredients are good and which are bad for your hair, maybe finding the natural alternative to locking moisture in your hair is the remedy.
100% shea butter is that pure product. Simply made from grinding nuts from Karite African trees and adding water, shea butter contains fatty acids and essential vitamins not only needed to achieve moisturized, soft and healthy skin, but hair as well.
Because of its thick and pasty texture, shea butter is best used when combined with an oil like coconut, or heated to properly absorb in hair and scalp. It is a great weekly leave-in product when applied on freshly washed and conditioned hair.
Shea butter has therapeutic properties that rehydrate and protect hair from the ultra violent rays of the sun or cold, minimizing brittleness and dryness of hair.
As shea butter heals, moisturizes and protects your hair, it will stimulaate growth of long luscious hair.
