Shea butter has many excellent properties but it’s a little known fact that Shea Butter is excellent for Hair! You would think with all the money spent on hair products that Shea Butter would garner more attention. And most of those hair products do nothing!
It’s important to understand that Shea Butter should not be applied directly to dry hair. Shea Butter actually locks in moisture so what you want to do is combine it with water or other hair moisture products, like conditioner.
Unrefined Shea Butter can actually hold your hair in place, similar to a light weight hair gel.
