This head of hair is absolutely magnificent. Wow. I began using Shea butter but it can be so hard. Is melting is in a double boiler an acceptable practice for getting it to a softer consistory to make applying it easier? Did that make sense?

Thank you for the compliment!
At one time, my ends looked like rats had a chewing fest on them. They were so dry that they were grey on the ends. I had hairs that were split, and then that split hair was split again. Then on top of all that my hair was full of knots sometimes intertwined with lint. Yuck!!!! It took me years to resolve my hair end issues.

Yes, it makes sense…Girl…we got a 800 or so page long thread on Shea butter. It is extremely informative. I used to hate Shea butter. Now I love it. I learned how to work with it and learned how to use it in my hair.

I make my own and mix Shea butter with other oils. Using a double boiler method gently melt it. Put mixture in the freezer or fridge until hard. Then remove and let it soften a bit. Then use a metal electric whisker to whip it to the consistency of whipped cream!

Let me see if I can find that thread for you!

Thank you!! Imma start reading it now. And I have noticed a difference with my ends since using Shea with my LCO. You are so appreciated.

Know I've been mia. Needed a break from my hair so been in twists. I'm not sure what shape my ends are in but I seem to be retaining OK at the moment. I know my ends seemed to do much better when my hair was super short. I'm scheduled for a trim in November and I will blow dry in December. That will give me a good idea.

If you don’t wanna melt Shea butter, look into Shea Nilotica from 3CayG. It’s my favorite butter and it’s already creamy.

I forgot that I joined and I want getting the notifications. I've been semi-slacking on my hair. My new routine is great, but I'm not as consistent as I'd like.

I can't remember when my last trim was and so I'm thinking of installing mini-twists so that I can dust my ends.

I did my hair this weekend and I think my ends are in good shape. I'm keeping my hair in twist. But I think using Kinky Curly products really helps keep my hair hydrated. I have other gels but I may just switch over to Kinky Curly after my next trim in November.
