This is our new Hair Butter made with a blend of raw shea butter (we get ours directly from a non-profit from Ghana) and some wonderful oils.

There are several versions and it helps if you already know what kinds of oils your hair responds too. Some people do better with lighter oils like Grapeseed and others respond to the lactic acid in Coconut oil.

Shea butter balms are not the best choice for fine or thin hair, it can be too much of a good thing.

If you aren't sure make sure and just order the Trial sizes until you can experiment with the different types and find your perfect combination.

Shea & Argan Oil - A rich, thick balm good for very dry hair with the smoothing properties of Argan.

Shea & Coconut Oil - Rich and polishing, good for hair with damaged cuticle. Nice shine benefits.

Shea & Grapeseed Oil - Lighter and better for porous hair types as it is absorbed beneath the cuticle. Helps hair feel softer.

Shea & Sweet Almond Oil - Medium dense, a good mid range balm for dry and coarse hair.

Shea & Jojoba Oil - This is a thicker, heavier balm good for non-porous hair types as a polisher.

* The "CO" or Conditioner Only Method of cleansing hair - For anyone with dry, wavy or frizzy hair you really should give this method a try. It basically is substituting cheap conditioner for shampoo. I know it sounds nuts, but it really works and boy will your hair and scalp love you for it.
We have become so used to scrubbing our scalps and skin that we have really done damage to natures perfect system, that of body oil production and it's role in protecting our skin and hair.
If we could get used to just rinsing ourselves with only water we would all be a lot better off, but short of that this method is the next best thing.

How to CO - Get some cheap Suave or White Rain conditioner (silicone free) and dilute it down about 25% with bottled water (save an empty conditioner bottle for this purpose).

Next soak your scalp with the diluted conditioner and massage it in real good. Put a towel around your shoulders and do something else while you wait about 5 -15 minutes. This step is crucial to allow the surfactants in the conditioner to absorb oils and dirt. Next add a bit more diluted conditioner on top of your head and massage and "lather" this into your hair.

This second step is also very important because it physically lifts the dirt and oil away from your scalp. Third, rinse really - really - really well to get it to all go down the drain. Not rinsing well enough can ruin the whole plan, leaving hair feeling dirty or greasy.

If you are a curly/kinky/wavy you will probably want to add some "good" conditioner to the ends/length and just rinse that lightly and squeeze out the excess water. Air drying is the best method, if you can do it. If you have to blow dry then spray on some of the detangler first - and again when you are done. It should help a lot with the frizzies. Frizzy hair is just waves and curls that have been disturbed and fluffed up too much. Your goal is to get them to clump back into waves, curls, spirals or coils.

For wavy and curly hair leaving some good conditioner in your hair during rinsing (or adding some back on after rinsing ) is the best way to get smooth bouncy curls instead of frizz.. The secret is in "trapping" moisture in the hair strands and this is how it is done.

To take it one step further you then want to really seal in that moisture longer term. That is where hair oils and balms do their magic.Apply a small amount of balm to your palms, rubs vigrously to melt and then start smoothing on the hair from the tips up. Allow to air dry if possible.
