    Is Shea Butter not considered an oil? Please educate me.

  2. Emily

    Even though it behaves like an oil in the sense that it can effectively seal in your moisture, it is actually a very heavy butter. There is Shea oil that you can purchase that is pretty much an oil. – hope that helps

    I used to use coconut oil, but I was using the bad kind you buy at pharmacy, not the organic kind that has nothing but pure coconut that you can buy In huge tubs at a natural grocers. I noticed the difference right away !
    And you can use it to cook too :3

    Use raw shea butter and mix in hemp oil, argan, jojoba. Just found on ebay organic oils you can order in any size you want. I am getting hemp, coconut & babassu (new to me so I googled it) They say it is better than coconut so I may just order the hemp & babassu.

    Alana Douglas-Glasgow I mix mine with raw Shea butter..but I also add to my castle peppermint shampoo. You have to read up on the oil you want because some are carrier oils and those you would normally mix with something else. Then find what works for your hair. I been also daily dabbing flax seed and hemp in the top of my head.

    Don’t forget argan oil! I love the one from pro naturals!
