Shea Growth and Retention Regimen 2015

I know this thread was for 2015. Much of what was said within this thread, held true for me in 2017 as well. I learned that I have to whip shea butter in order to make it work for me. The benefits have been amazing!
  • no tangled hair
  • fewer to no single strand knots
  • super shine
  • buttery soft hair
BUT...
Phenomenal growth and retention were the biggest surprises. I started using these butters because of the growth and/or retention I saw on women with afro-textured hair who use it faithfully. Although I have afro-textured hair, what works for most people, rarely works for me. Shea butter has proven to work for me as well.

In addition, now, I can spot who uses shea butter in their regimen by the health, and most importantly to me, usually by the length of their hair. I will continue to use shea butter in 2018

I can totally relate to the bolded text. I tried shea butter on top of my stay sof fro and I was shocked at how well it worked! I used it a second time last night and it worked even better. My hair is so soft! I wasn't expecting that because whenever I jump on one of these bandwagons I end up with drier hair and emptier pockets lol.

You are welcome! I am adamant about that whisker for Shea butter because not having it was number reason my shea mixes never turned out right.

I am sealing my leave in conditioners with Shea butter and cornrowing my hair for wigs. I am expecting good results of moist healthy ends.
