Shea butter is a versatile natural product. It has so many benefits for the hair and skin. I love shea butter specifically for my skin. I suffer from eczema since I was young and this has by far been the best product to combat the dry, itchy patches. My mother has bought so many over the counter products in hopes of helping my skin. If you have skin issues, then maybe you understand.
A few years ago, I discovered that shea butter can be used on my natural hair. Wow, where have I been. This natural goodness works great on my hair. I decided to combine it with a few of my favorite oils to increase the greatness. ha ha
Shea butter is great because it contains Vitamin A, E and fatty acids that aid in healthy skin. It can treat eczema, dermatitis, dry skin, dry scalp issues, scars and sores. It can also be used as a hair & skin moisturizer, insect bite soother and burns. It does a beautiful job in repaired damaged hair whether it be from heat damage, chemicals or straighteners by hydrating and softening the hair strands.
1 Cup Shea Butter
3 tbsp EVCO (softens new growth, thickens hair, prevents breakage, anti-dandruff agent, adds shine and bounce to hair)
1 tbsp jojoba oil (moisturizes scalp, treats dandruff, dry scalp & dry skin, increases hair cell growth, increases blood circulation)
1 tbsp Castor/ JBCO oil (Protects hair from fungus, thickens hair, treats split ends, aids in hair growth)
