The Natural Wonder that is Shea Butter

 

Shea Butter has become a well-known ingredient for skin nutrition; it is now growing in use for hair as well. Originating from West Africa, Shea Butter is derived from an African Shea tree nut. It is mixed with other natural ingredients to provide advantages for moisture, treatment, curls, and style definition from heat styling. Shea butter is loaded with vitamins including Vitamin E to help protect the scalp from dryness. It provides antioxidants to encourage blood flow, and anti-inflammatory aspects to help against skin conditions.

 

For dry hair, moisturize by softening the butter with some heat and finish by sealing it in with some oil of your preference. Shea Butter helps you detangle when used on damp hair with a wide-tooth comb. Use on curly hair by applying the butter before twisting or coiling to clarify curls. And mix with a high smoke point oil before using heat styling tools for added protection.

 

One provider of Shea Butter is EuGeniaShea.com. This Mother-Daughter company began with a cancer diagnosis and raw, unrefined Ghanaian Shea butter. This pair decided to spend more time together by growing and expanding to eventually provide the best all natural Shea butter moisturizers. This company utilizes hundreds of female workers to whom they provide above-average wages and donate 15% profit back to them as an education fund.
