    Yes, I have a couple...or a lot :look: I haven't noticed any fading....but then again, I don't rub the Coffee Shea mix on them. I usually rub it on my tummy, thighs and butt and I dont have any tattoos in those areas.

    190525021749.jpg heat damage progress. When I was transitioning out of heat damage, Shea butter provided the lubrication that my hair needed to keep it from matting and knotting at the line of demarcation. I cut the damaged ends off in June of last year and now my hair is denser than ever thanks to being able to keep my hair properly moisturized and sealed. If you want to cut down on knots and matting, use a ridiculous amount of Shea butter in your regimen lol

    I made a small batch just from some coffee Columbian brew I have. I use it mainly for my skin.

    I have very thick all black tribal tattoos. So far they’re all still dark, shiny, and one smooth even tone. If anything, the one on my leg is darker now.

    Shea Siblings....I was getting compliments left and right on my hair at my son's birthday party yesterday and it wasn't even down...it was in a high bun. One sweet Sister asked me what I used and I told her for the most part, just Shea Butter. She was like oh cool, I like Cantu Shea butter products too....I was like ummmm no baby

    [​IMG]

    Come here, let me show you the real deal....

    I pulled out a few different whipped Shea blends and showed her. She was surprised saying that it looks so different than what she sees in the BSS. I was trying to explain to her how to work with Shea Butter to make it easy to apply but she really just wasnt getting it. It's so easy to forget that others that are not really on hair journeys are really just not that into the stuff that we are. I ended up pulling out a block of Shea Butter, some oils and my mixer. Others started gathering around while I was showing her how to whip Shea Butter. It was the best part of the party. I converted about 9 new Shea Queens....ayeeeeeee!

    [​IMG]

    My husband was like...Lordt, only you would have a Shea Butter class at a birthday party and have folks leaving wih Tupperware bowls full of whipped Shea butter instead of food. :lachen:

    Ain't no party like a Queen Shea party. Hold up though! Any of them Tupperware toting Sisters put in for that butter? Just playing. Shea Made hair Unicorns are going to be like mint plants. Just spreading everywhere! Cultivate them heads of hair like mint plants. Li'l Mint is in the house!

    inCollage_20190527_170833711-1440x1440.jpg Hey Shea Siblings! I got my haircut on Saturday. I wanted to stick with the place from February, but honestly I can't afford to spend $200 for a steam treatment, press, and trim. So what I did was went to a lady that I've been going to off an on for the past 8 years. I trust her not to cut too much.

    I previously purchased a steamer, ordered a white cape from Amazon, and flat ironed my hair good enough. I say that because I don't ever wear my hair out. Showed my stylist the "signature" cut from the other place and she told me it's just a blunt cut.

    You'll see that I made some progress,but I have a long way to go. Today I did a rice water and onion juice treatment. Normally, I shampoo, condition, and go to the braider. Instead, I sectioned my hair and twisted it. Doing this helped me to see the many different lengths and thin spots in my hair. If I keep growing and trimming, I should be in a much better place by this time next year.

    You will see from the pic that there is a whole in my hair toward the nape.

    So I finally caught up with this thread from my last post and you ladies are thriving! :dance7:

    I made a second batch of Shea, flipped 16oz to 32 oz I used white Shea this time. A bit more grainy and my whip was more of a yogurt by the end of the whipping process. A day later it gained some depth which I prefer. My Shea stash is now finished and I’m soo excited to finally purchase and support 3cay!!:cup: Im going enjoy filling up my cart......:shopping:

    Would love to know as well. I saw a youtuber who prepoos with capuacu butter. Seemed interesting but also seems like it'd be a lot to wash out given the amount of shea I already use.

    Super weird post ahead.

    A Facebook friend mentioned her little baby ate her Shea Butter. For some reason, I thought it was a good idea for me to try it too :lachen:

    I tasted the tiniest bit of the Nilotica, like literally just barely a fingertip full. It’s creamy and disappears really fast. I convinced my kid to taste it too and he said it tastes like butter :laugh: I’m like “Duh, of course it’s Shea Butter” :rofl:

    Don’t try this at home kids.

    I bought some deliciously creamy food grade Ghana Shea butter on Monday from a vendor, at a disappointing hair show. I dont plan on cooking with it though:)
