    i'm gonna buy neutrogenas anti residue shampoo and see if that;ll help... you use it with ur reg shampoo to make it work better. If that doesnt help i'll do another protein tx.

    Well hard water deposits minerals so you would have to unless you were using something that was cleansing your hair good enough . Doesn't sound like you need protein .

    Elongated Braids Nov 25th, 2019: It's the Shea!


    So, like I told ya'll last night, Queen Shea had me doing the Shea Slide. I slipped in some spilled and melted Shea. I made my second batch with equal parts cocoa butter just like the first batch, put it in the fridge to harden overnight and then whipped it this morning and applied it to my hair this morning.

    It was firm and it elongated my braids really well today. One of my colleagues was kind enough to take the photo of my Shea caked, hair. I packed on my Shea. I like this mix of Shea + hard cocoa butter! I feel like one of those women from Chad who uses Chebe powder and has those super long, thick braids. My braids in the back are the same length, but they draw up and shrink at different rates. Hence, the illusion of the difference in length of the braids in the back.

    Does the addition of cocoa butter make ur braids stiffer? is that the reason for the extra elongation or is it just the weight of the shea concoction? Thanks for the love as always our very own queen shea (ms. chicoro).

    Yes, exactly! The cocoa butter is a very hard butter. So, it gives my Shea blend a backbone and stiffer braids. The stiffness only lasts for an hour on my hair, and my hair has to be wet before I apply the Shea. The elongation comes when I first remove my scarf and the hair is freshly stretched.

    My mom has been using shea butter and daily water to take care of her hair. I helped her color and straighten it for the holiday. It is now BSB length (possibly BSL she’s not done straightening it yet). This is the longest that she can remember it being. Queen shea showed out again!

    I didn't notice a difference in the quality of my hair until you mentioned it and agree with you. Something is definitely changing. Those braids are dropping longer and longer down my back. I, too, have never seen my hair this long before. My hair is starting to look more like the Shea Unicorns with the 30 to 40 inches of hair that I admired before starting this Shea butter challenge. Shea butter has truly transformed my hair.

    I'm trying to finish reading both the 2018 and 2019 threads before the 2020 gets started.

    I'm on page 170 of the 2018 thread. And I've just bought 5 lbs of shea butter, some p&j fragrances, various oils and a stick blender, I'm all set

    I went to a gathering of black women today, in Paris. There were about 30 people there. My friend did a presentation. She brought the Shea butter mix I made for her as she likes to oil her skin and get dressed on site prior to her interaction. Of course the topic of hair came up during the breaks in the day and during side conversations. So, with her permission I brought out her butter.

    Talk about being swarmed! The women loved her butter blend. I let them sniff it and use the butter that was on the cap of the jar. I put lemongrass as the scent. They asked me if I sold it. But I did give them the recipe.

    Lemongrass scented Shea butter mix is to black women what catnip is to cats: IRRESISTIBLE!
    And, it's good for them and their hair.

    As 2019 winds down, I realized that I have been a Shea butter user for three (3) full years. I started in December 2016, with an official start date in January 2017. That's all of 2017, all of 2018 and now all of 2019!

    Starting January 2020, this reformed Shea butter Hater, will be starting on her fourth (4th) year of using Shea butter. My hair has literally transformed and been changed by Queen Shea.

    I realize that you do need to think about and analyze how you apply and use Shea butter. You can't just buy any old Shea butter, slap it on your head and expect it to work for you. There is an art to it and you must respect Queen Shea and apply her with love of your self, to make it work.

    Will there be a 2020 challenge? Cause I’ll be joining joining lol. Ive been off the board for about a year. (Had a baby, moved into a new place, went through some real tough postpartum anxiety, hair shedding, weight gain; life in general. Lol.) Haven’t neglected my hair though, but, Im at full BCL and in need of a trim, which I’ll be doing before the year is out. I ordered a ton of Shea Butter and a new mixer on Black Friday. Shea Butter will be added to my regimen permanently. This new length needs a regimen revamp.
    Anywho, hey ladies! Yall’s hair making me drool!

    I used it straight out the jar or tried to blend it in the blender. The result was a greasy, hard, dirty, fuzzy mess on my head. So, I hated it. It wasn't it until I whipped it that I realized that it could work for my hair.

    THE ONLY REASON I revisited and tried to find a way to make Shea butter work is because of @ThatJerseyGirl observation that all long haired naturals had one thing in common: Shea butter.

    So, I went to every long haired natural I personally admired and sure enough, they all had used Shea. So, I was DETERMINED to figure how to make this magical potion work for me, and I did!

    A Reformed and Former Shea butter hater

    Absolutely! I’ve been passed the Shea Torch, so we can keep the Shea Threads going strong. Been MIA currently with finals and all that, but I’m still here, preparing and all that lol.
