Shea butter… the ultimate moisturizer

April 10, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

It’s no secret that Shea Butter is one of the most popular ingredients added to products today. Be it lotions, shampoos, soaps and even anti-aging creams, it has proven to be a most effective addition to many popular brands on the market today. This well-known fact caused me to question one thing…

“Why did it take so long for me to start using this amazing butter?”

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used Shea Butter in the past, but not actively. Back in the day, if it happened to be the only thing around, then I would use it like I would use lip balm- But nothing more.

Man, did I miss out!!!!

For My Hair

For those of you who may have read my earlier blog post about my journey of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, will be familiar with how I’ve started my ‘education’ of using natural products to reach a goal of having healthy hair.  Well…

Shea Butter joined me on that journey.

As I researched the uses and benefits of Shea Butter and the importance it would have in supporting my hair transition,  I no longer questioned whether or not I should include it as part of my journey (Along with my Tea Tree, of course). After the first couple of days of using Shea Butter on my hair, I was completely sold on it. Since adding Shea Butter to my daily moisturizing routine for my hair, I can honestly say I will always use Shea Butter to keep my hair looking shiny and healthy.

 For My Skin

During my moment of ‘enlightenment’ about the ‘Wonderful World of Shea Butter’, I figured it was high time to also use it for moisturizing my skin. I admit that after years of using popular brands out of habit to moisturize my skin was difficult to stop, it didn’t take long for me to see and feel the difference in my skin, which again emphasized the importance for me to ‘Keep It Natural’.

Seeing the amazing results from using Shea Butter on its own, I began creating what I like to call my ‘Shea Mixes’ to maximize the effect on my skin. So far, I can say that a mixture of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and 1 or 2 Essential Oils has proven to be the ultimate combination for my skin.

Here’s a small list of benefits to support using Shea Butter.

Helps to Heal…

·        Burns, sores and scars

·        Dermatitis

·        Psoriasis

·        Eczema

·        Stretch Marks (diminish)

If you haven’t tried Shea Butter and you don’t have allergies, consider adding this ‘Ultimate Moisturizer’ to your list of natural products.

See what it can do for you. You’ll love it!!
