Raw Shea Butter
[su_heading align=”left”]A Customer Hair Conditioner Story:[/su_heading]
[su_quote]I have natural 4b hair and I recently ran out of my usual daily hair conditioner. With the knowledge of knowing how important it is to have my hair type conditioned daily to prevent breakage, I had to find an alternative until I could order my favorite moisturizer. I went through several failed attempts to discover what would work best.
The first thing I tried was misting my hair with plain water followed by a small amount of the moisturizer I had left. By the time my hair was completely dried, my hair was hard and dry. I then tried applying conditioner and water to my hair. The same result followed: dry, hard hair.
So I decided to use another moisturizer that I had on hand. Raw Shea butter. I first used plain water to mist my hair so it was damp all over. I then took a dollop of raw Shea butter, rubbed it in my hands to melt it and applied it section by section into my hair, getting more Shea butter as needed. I finally combed my hair with a wide comb to distribute the Shea butter evenly and my afro looked lovely.[/su_quote]
Q. Even though my hair was soft now, how would it feel once it was dry?
A. After a few hours my hair still felt soft and moisturized.
Q. The following day?
A. My hair still felt soft and moisturized.
I was amazed at this revelation of how beneficial Shea butter can actually be in black hair!
Natural raw Shea butter acts as a natural conditioner and sealant. It seals in the much needed moisture into our hair, strengthens it and imparts a natural shine. You can also use it for twists and braids. I recommend all black women to introduce Shea butter to part of their hair care routine whether you are all natural or relaxed. Your hair will benefit from it no matter what!
