    I use that too. But I have a special thang for my stretch marks! It's that brush with the wooden pegs.

    Rinsed my hair in the shower last night and did a wng with 3 different shea mixes. One light, one heavy, and one for smoothing the front of my hair. Very soft and fluffy, not super defined but also not super frizzy either which was surprising. Going back to the basics and simplicity of black soap and shea being the main things in my regimen. When RealQueensRegimen was still active, she did her wngs with oil and shea and only used plain shea when she straightened her hair. Found the same worked for me. Trying to break away (again) from 'keeping up with the joneses' when it comes to hair care.

    I just started using the coffee butter last night so it’s too soon to tell. As for the cloth, yes I notice that skin is much softer when I use it.

    Does it do anything special? Like stimulating circulation in that area?

    I did mini twists again and used whipped shea butter to seal my hair. I typically only use water and shea butter. But this time I made a leave-in with aloe vera gel, glycerin, and flaxseed gel to use under the shea butter. My hair likes it. It still feels soft two days later.

    Thank you @GettingKinky for updating on it. It looks good. How did this recipe compare to your original 50/50 mix? Do you have a preference yet or do you need to use it a few more times before you know for sure? I'm running low on my curl defining creams so I'm going to try this shea pudding before I repurchase anymore.

    I’m not sure which I like better but I’m leaning towards the one with more aloe vera gel. It seems to be easier to apply and make my hair shinier, but I need to use it a few more times to know for sure.

    Yes, it stimulates circulation and it gentle removes the scarred skin. If you do it every other day, about three times a week, you see a difference. But, you have to use it in concentrated areas, going in small tight circles on the area you want to improve. It must be done with loving care and it takes time. It's a great way to elevate and practice, conscious self-care. This process along with the scrub recipe have really lightened the stretch marks on my bum. Now that I am employing the coffee oil, I think it will get even better! Then, I add the Shea butter. Wowsers!

    Based on the survey thus far, the length barrier most want to break, at 27% is Waist length!
    You've got nine (9) more months in which to do it. Anything is possible!

    Who's got tips on how to they got to waist length? Anybody? Some of you Shea Made Hair Unicorns got to have some tips, right? Come on!

    I really like this idea! I’m thinking of taking a break from my stylist until I’m ready to color my hair for my birthday in June.

    After washing, Slathered my hair in ATON hair butter (first 2 ingredients: Shea butter, avocado butter) over their leave in and my hair was soooo soft, tangled just melting away. I was heavy handed, applying in sections and it felt great esp my ends. Put in 8 jumbo flat twist, Bobby pin around my hair and a scarf on to allow my hair to soak up all that goodness overnight.

    I think leaving twists/braids in to soak up the Shea definitely takes hair to the next level. Since using natural oils and Shea butter I’m noticing the quality of my hair improving more and more. Length will come and with it, long strong, moist hair. I can’t wait to see everyone’s hair at the end of the year!!

    For me: Keeping my hair stretched and tangle free (via roller sets) and the ends lubricated to prevent snags/breakage.

    Uh, oh... that marriage partner is going to be at the wedding. You might be getting hitched sooner than you realize. I can FEEL it. That Fenty Body Lava, that Flawless, Smooth Coffee Shea Made Skin and that long, luscious Shea Made Hair are going to make you STAND out and be seen and desired.

    It's show time!

    I took a few mishandling liberties with my hair while I was away but I had my Shea butter to help see me through. This jar I made Feb 24th, is almost finished but I've still got back-up for this blend as I made too much last time. I'm happy too because this mix remained airy and soft throughout. 2019-04-12_07.48.35.jpg

    I finally clay washed my hair on Sunday. Followed with fermented rice water, (rinsed) and used Shea and gel to seal. On Wednesday, I moisturised the back with water, added a little TMC leave-in, sealed with more shea butter and twisted it up (ends tucked). I haven't messed with my hair since. 2019-04-12_07.48.12.jpg

    My shea pudding isn’t slippy enough. I have a hard time applying to my hair especially when my hair is wet/damp. But I don’t have time in the morning to dry my hair before applying.
