    Thank you for the compliment about my legs! And that Shea treatment sounds divine. What did you put in the blend for your friend? Does she have healthy hair practices?

    @Chicoro I made it for her baby so it was a mix of grapeseed oil, rice bran oil, and sunflower seed oil with no added fragrance.

    BTW- does anyone have recommendations for ezcema treatment?

    Tamanu oil has been beneficial for my daughter. Fenugreek water also helps. I'm out of that right now but I'd spray her flared up spots with the water then follow up with the butter (14g shea, 7g jbco, 7g tamanu oil).

    So the 2yo decided the house needed to be graced with the power of shea. A whole 4oz of shea smeared on the walls and half of mommy & daddy's dresser. I was none the wiser because I thought she was with her dad the whole time but lo and behold, he was in the shower. Children are lovely I tell ya.

    Thanks for the eczema tip.

    You're welcome. I got it off. Large majority of it was smeared on the dresser. I was mostly appalled that she cleared half of my container that was full that morning lol.

    My youngest son used to suffer from ezcema. I've tried everything under the sun but nothing has worked liked fenugreek.

    I start by making fenugreek tea. 1 tablespoon fenugreek to 2 cups water. I let it simmer in my crockpot for an hour or so on low, turn it off then allow it to steep overnight. From that, I use this recipe:

    90 grams Fenugreek tea
    7 grams Shea Butter
    3 grams BTMS 50
    Preservative (I like potassium sorbate)

    I use this as his body lotion and his conditioner as he also used to get patches on his scalp too. Since I've been using this on him, he has not had a single flare up (knock on wood)

    Shea test

    We are at #2500 post! I find this unbelievable because I figured we discussed everything in the 2018 Shea thread.


    Yet, we still have questions, are discovering things and solidifying things as it relates to our afro-textured hair and Shea butter.

    If you well versed ladies have questions and discussion at this level, imagine the questions and how a book could help others who don't have any knowledge.

    My book on Shea butter is coming.
    • Are there specific things you would like to see in a book about Shea butter?
    • Are there specific things you would like to know about Shea butter?
    • What would help you to know?
    • Do you want recipes?
    • Do you want Science?
    • Do you want testimonials?

    I WILL NOT BE COPYING YOUR INFORMATION
    from this thread or the previous thread and putting it in my book!​



    There are some very key things I have discovered about Shea butter that I have not shared in either this or the previous thread. In fact I have never shared it ANYWHERE publicly. Thus, I never posted it here or anywhere. It's going in my book first. I will be building my book around that information.

    So, if I see my info somewhere else without being credited...I'll know where they got it from!

    I love what this lady is doing!!!!!!!


    @ajoke made me aware of this lady who is a hair coach. Thank you @ajoke!!!

    Her name is @enitanhaircoach on Instagram. I believe she does hair and is a shop owner. She has her own product brand.


    One of Enitan's signature products that she created and sells is a Shea Mango butter:

    I’ve been using her mango and avocado butter for about a year. She also has a protein product and something to help with damaged follicles. The follicle stuff is new, just came in the post last week. If it works for my edges, I will report back.

    Shea Butter Makes You Sweat During Exercise!


    @8:39 She pulls out her Shea butter.
    @8:44 She applies the Shea butter.

    She puts on Shea butter on her arms and across her stomach and torso. She says that Shea butter makes her sweat MORE. She prefers it because it is all natural. I put Shea on before exercise, too, but to protect my skin from the Abolene. Now, I'm going with straight Shea butter. Queen Shea comes through again!



    *I love that JSculpt belt. I ordered one but have not received it.

    A small update :
    I have kept using scurl and Shea butter and I am quite happy with my hair so far. I have 3.5 months of new growth. It is very thick and I have very few split ends. IMG_20190715_173300.jpg

    That’s wassup!! Get money sis. Had I discovered her years ago I might’ve taken her webinar because I was so frustrated with my hair not retaining length. Now I know the secret (keeping hair moist and sealing with Shea butter) and well... I’m good! :bdance:I won’t knock her hustle though. Get money sis!

    • Are there specific things you would like to see in a book about Shea butter? Lots of pictures or illustrations.
    • Are there specific things you would like to know about Shea butter? Yes why does it darken hair color yet lightens dark spots on skin. Is the di/triterpenes?
    • What would help you to know? To know what?
    • Do you want recipes? Of course!
    • Do you want Science? Duh!
    • Do you want testimonials? Does a fat baby fart? Yes!!!

    Thanks very much!

    What would help you to know or better understand the concepts? Illustrations, video, workbook, pictures?

    Pictures of what though? Shea butter?

    @caribeandiva ,

    For a Shea butter book, what kind of illustrations would you be looking for? Pictures of what? Human? Hair or pictures of the Shea nut? I'm not trying to be funny.

    That hair is gorgeous! Your skin is fabulous! That tiny waist is magnificent!

    Is that a Callanetics waist? Is that a Lotte Berk waist? TELL US, girl!

    Thank you!
    The waist is a combination of things :
    - Callanetics waist whittler: I do this 3times a week at least
    -Lotte Berk abs : same frequency as above
    -vacuum exercises as often as I remember. Those strengthen your natural belt and really flatten your stomach
    I am naturally a pear. I think deadlifts and rows have helped develop my upper back and gave me a shape that is closer to an hourglass.
    My waist currently measures 67cms, I am trying to diet down to 62 cms, my smallest was 58 cms but I was a bit too skinny then.
