Shea butter has a limited capacity to absorb ultraviolet radiation and can therefore can be used as a mild sunblock lotion (Factor 6).
It can also be used to treat other skin problems such as; blemishes, eczema, skin allergies, wrinkles, itching, insect bites, and even frost bite.
Hair tip: You can use shea butter to reduce frizziness and get your hair to curl the way you want. Just apply a small amount of shea butter to fingertips—press your fingertips to the butter with moderate pressure to get just enough to feel tacky. Then rub fingertips on unruly hair. You can then restyle with a blow drier and brush. The heat from the dryer melts the shea butter, the brush spreads it evenly through your hair, and the hair curls the way you style it.
