    Does she have Shea butter on her hair in the first picture, the before photo? Because if that is pure growth, which I believe it is, that is amazing progress!

    Just ordered 2 pails of shea, 1 for me and 1 sent directly to my Mother. :look: Also got some black soap and mango butter. I have a feeling I'm going to have to become my own mixtress. I put in an order for a bunch of body products with her more than a month ago and haven't gotten one drip drop of lotion, body butter, nada. :cry3: I'm able but she's created a spoiled monster at this point *sigh* #firstworldproblems :lachen::lachen:
    Let me go back and pay attention to the shea mixes.

    I missed a bunch of days while I was off at my bra making workshop. Hmmph!

    But!. I found a new deodorant I like that lists Shea butter as the first ingredient!

    Well, it's over for you @reallynow . I think you just need to go on and surrender to the power of Shea. You've gone from a hater, to begging for your mom to make you something with Shea, to buying 2 pails of Shea and now becoming a mixtress yourself- because the NEED is so strong.

    If that is not the fastest and hardest slide into Shea addiction, I don't know what is.

    Really? That was all? I don't know if my hair is that obedient but I'm certainly going to try your method.

    It’s funny you mentioned baggying because I’ve been thinking of doing that at night to save my pillows from my greasy Shea mix. Right now I’m still using the almost pure 100% Shea mix which isn’t oily at all. Like you I miss the fun of using the luxurious, fluffy mix that apparently you can only get by using more oil. Baggying is an excellent solution!

    Is Yoda multilingual? Because his English is messed up. He's always putting his verbs first.

    Was trying to discover Yoda's language and came up Yaddle.* Had no idea she even existed. She looks relaxed. She might be a straight hair natural, though. Based on the lack of shine on her hair, I doubt she's a Shea butter user.

    *I was talking about Yoda's English, and mine is similar. We might be family.

    *takes pail-shaped award*

    I don't even know where to start.....!

    *aggressively grabs microphone*

    First and foremost all praise and glory to Queen Shea for deeming me worthy of her buttery blessings. Without her emollient essence I wouldn't be standing here today.

    Next up big thanks to @Chicoro for staring this thread. I knew the legends of Shea but this thread brought me closer to the teachings and opened my eyes to the true meaning of being a unicorn. Bless up gyal.

    Not to be forgotten are the ladies of this thread who have stood by me thru random braid photos, incoherent posts and over use of gifs. Y'all da real MVPs.

    I hope that by receiving this honor, little black boys and girls will see someone who looks like them and know that they too can be a Shea made unicorn. Nothing is impossible.

    And never forget...

    *drops mic, mainly because hands are too greasy from over applying Shea*

    I just asked her. She said she didn’t take measurements. Oh well.

    Yea that method works well for me. I use a decent amount of leave in so my hair is easier to manipulate and just twirl. Try it!

    It looks like she got 1.5 to 2 inches of growth. Look at the distance from the top of her shoulders to the end of the braid, in both pictures.

    I promise when I ordered a few weeks ago that I left some for my Shea siblings. *Slides out to tag someone else, while singing that old Shaggy song*

    I went to the beauty supply today and bought me two (2) bottles of castor oil and the large size of Scurl. I still haven't gotten to my hair. Every time I feel well, I get the sniffles, a sore throat or come down with hoof and mouth issues.

    So, I've got to wait until I'm feeling real good. My hair stays wet for a day or two and any residual health issues will just come roaring back. Thank goodness Shea butter has anti-microbial components.

    I think I'm going to whip up just a bit more Shea butter so my jar can be full to the brim with that yellow, buttery goodness. Let the slathering begin.

    Night, night ya'll!
