    I totally agree. Not allowing children to say no does a great disservice to them. It leaves them defenseless and opens them up for all kinds of abuse.

    I was trialing it to see if it reduces tangles and releases shed hair easily on wash day. I haven't washed yet, so I don't know.

    But . . . I had to water rinse and gel my hair for church Sunday. It just was not looking right. It FELT super soft, though. Felt very, very good.

    Since I water-rinsed, I've probably messed the experiment up. I'll try again later.

    Exactly lol. I did Aphogee 1 Step this weekend and I’ve noticed less shedding/breakage already. My relaxed hair hated the Balancing Moisturizer so I’m not even willing to tempt my natural hair with it :nono:

    That Balancing Moisturizer needs to be called Super Sucker because it takes every ounce of water from your head, leaving a hard, brittle, mess.

    Glad to hear your hair is no longer breaking and is stabilized. I still haven't done my treatment yet.

    Oh, okay. The Scurl/Shea butter combination is not really for wearing hair loose. It's more for protective styling, and using it for updos. The glycerin in the SCURL makes hair draw up and shrink.

    News from the Field: Global Shea Alliance

    New Warehouse Model Reduces Costs and Creates Local Jobs



    Shea house.jpg





    In the West Gonja district of northern Ghana, GSA sustainability partner, Naasakle, constructed three 40MT warehouses made from local raw materials, including sand bricks and adhesive extracted from leaves of the indigenous Chapa tree. Cement was used in the foundation and for plastering to better secure the structure. The warehouse model resulted in 70 percent cost savings compared to a commensurate warehouse made from cement and other imported materials. Women cooperatives and community members contributed significant labor to the construction, creating a strong sense of ownership. The warehouses are expected to last for over 20 years, with periodic maintenance.

    The GSA has commissioned a study sponsored by the USAID Sustainable Shea Initiative to establish a more cost effective warehouse model, allowing more women’s groups in West Africa to benefit from direct and traceable sourcing. The study and models will be published in May 2018.

    Yes! I ended up ordering more. I initially purchased 10 pounds from Cleopatra. Then I heard about what 3cayg stood for and wanted simply just to support, so I ordered 10 pounds from them. And then when I got it, it was so magnificent...that I went back in and ordered 25 more pounds. :blondboob: I am on a Shea buying ban for the rest of 2018 or at least until I finish my Cleo stash and 1 block of my 3cayg stash.

    But in my defense, I use tons of Shea butter for home and business use...

    Thanks!

    I wore it in a puff and it did not work because my hair wasn't gelled. I'll keep playing around with it. Some people in this thread are successfuly wearing wng's, braid outs, etc., and benefiting. But yes, I understand that most everyone in this thread is protective styling. :yep:

    I've been reading through this thread to get all the tips I can. Somewhere y'all mentioned adding your Shea butter mix to your deep conditioner.

    Sounded good to me! I already add honey, so I scooped a dollop of my mix in with Nexxus humectress and got this:

    20180415_200743_resized.jpg

    My hair is incredibly soft, but really poofy! I'll keep adding to my deep conditioners to see how my hair acts.

    Thank you

    I have been faithful and consistent I think for about three months (not too sure, but it's only recently that I've been making it; so that's why I say a few months)

    Awe man!!! Thank you so much

    I’m so grateful for the recognition

    If it weren’t for all of my fellow Lhcf sisters, I wouldn’t know about hair and how we can take care of our own hair. Better than a “stylist” sometimes.

    There’s even something spiritually alchemic in taking our own energy and treating our hair with love and care.
    I again, can’t stop singing the praises of Queen Shea. I really feel that after all these years of dealing with my own hair, shea makes my hair so much more manageable.
    Shea butter will always be a part of my regimen

    Thank you again. I bow to you all
