    I was so thirsty to get my Shea Butter, I went to Walgreens (where I have my FedEx packages dropped off so I don’t miss them) a whole day ahead of of schedule. I thought I got my email telling me my package was ready, but that was an email for package I have already :lachen::abducted:

    Going through the 2018 Shea thread and I'm just cracking up. We were having a ball in that thread and I'm only on Dec 2017 posts. I can't believe we are still using these terms I came up with..."Shea Slide"..."Queen Shea"...yall just as weird and Shea crazy as me. :lachen:I say that with love! LOL :2inlove:

    I found my first pictures showing my Shea'd up hair!

    The 2018 thread is making me miss @tapioca_pudding posts! :cry3:

    Also making me want to do a Shea'd up twistout.

    Awww thanks sis! I still haven’t found a better quality Shea. I’m so grateful for your coffee oil recipe. I have a scar that reminds me of something I’d like to forget and your coffee oil is the only thing that has worked to shrink and fade it. Thank you!!!! You are a healer @ElevatedEnergy !

    Though I haven’t been in here too much lately I am still Shea sliding all over my town. My go-to mix for my hair is still Shea (yellow or Nilotica), extra virgin olive oil, and some Rosemary herbal oil. I use the yellow Shea when I want something a bit heavier. The more I learn about the Queen the more I respect her. May her triterpines and fatty acids live forever!

    Even though I liked the look of my shea wng, it was suuuuper greasy and therefore dried out fast lol. I think I want to maybe use shea less directly and use more shea conditioners, DCs, etc. At least while I'm doing wngs anyway. Shea is still queen for braids.

    Shea Coffee Oil Results on my Burns on the front of my thigh:

    I feel like my burn fading has stalled. Then I catch a glimpse of my legs the scars are ever so slightly lighter.

    What's interesting is that the marks on my legs are diffusing. Imagine looking at an image and then watching it break down into individual pixels. That's what these scars look like they are doing, but slowly.

    I noticed that that my skin is drying and flaking where I put the coffee oil and the Shea Coffee Oil butter. Only the scarred area of my legs, those areas with the burns, are flaking. So, I KNOW it's the Shea Coffee Oil doing something.

    I don't think I will be able to go bare legged Summer 2019, though. My scars are still black. They look lighter to me. But, when I take a photo, they still appear on the image as dark, marks. I am ashamed to post them here because my eyes say fading and the camera image says still dark and scarred.

    I keep going. I believe it continues to work. The hot, boiling oil literally cooked my skin. Thus, the healing is slow as the damage was deep.

    Using up This Stash
    Came Up in here to shoulder up these 6,000 posts to keep our Shea Butta' Guru Ms @Chicoro on her J-O-B so the rest of us can make it.:kiss:

    I dipped back in my Stash for a minute to work on using up some of my Hand/Pre-mades so I haven't been whipping as much, but I may start to doing some Overnight SB Pre-Poo's so I can use up some of my SB and get some of the benefits.:lick:

    Good Work my Sister Shea Queens!

    Keep posting....Let's get to that 6,000 posts!

    I had a dream that I bought ANOTHER 5lb bucket of Shea even though I have 3 already :pullhair: plus some other butters I haven’t even touched yet lol. When my dreams aren’t being weird, I have shopping dreams, where I’m just walking around buying stuff lol. Get it together subconscious. We don’t have it like that right now.

    Question: do any of the ladies using coffee oil have tattoos? Have you noticed any changes in them since using the oil?

    Decided to pull out one of my previous DIY SB Blends to Pre-Poo with. I have a few of these, so I'll use them over the Summer to overnight Pre-Poo with on Wash Day.
