Shea butter is a firm butter that is more pliable if kept at room temperature. Even when firm it softens easily on your skin. Simply take a small amount and soften in the palm of your hand to smooth over dry, damaged skin. It can be applied as often as you need.
Growth Stimulating Conditioning Treatment
4 tablespoons of shea butter
1 tablespoons of argan oil
2 tablespoons Olive M 300
7 drops of rosemary essential oil
1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
Melt the oils together in a water bath or double boiler, except the vitamin E oil. Once melted, add the vitamin E oil and let the mixture cool till it looks thick and opaque but it must not be completely solid. Blend on high speed with an immersion/stick blender. Slowly add the witch hazel in a steady stream, while continuously blending. When you get a creamy, white, fluffy texture you can then transfer the conditioning treatment to your jar of choice.
To use, scoop out a little on your fingers and apply to your hair. Remember that a little goes a long way! You can choose to leave it in overnight then wash out with a gentle shampoo, or leave it in to control dry and frizzy hair. View more of our DIY hair masks on our blog.
100% pure organic Ugandan Shea Butter (Unrefined)
Shea butter contains various fatty acids which each have a specific temperature range where they melt and solidify. When the butter is melted and heat is unevenly distributed some fatty acids may solidify quicker than others, resulting in a grainy texture. Sometimes these grains take days, weeks or even months to appear. There is nothing wrong with the butter if it is grainy, but most prefer a smooth, buttery texture.
To prevent graininess and grain formation you will need to make sure that heat is evenly distributed during the cool down process. This is best achieved by constantly stirring the melted butter during cool down. Unfortunately simply pouring melted shea butter into jars and leaving to cool at room temperature without evenly distributing the heat will likely result in grains. So rather gently stir your melted butter while it cools for best results.

Very good quality,makes my skin smooth and soft
I love shea butter but this organic brand seems grainier and takes a bit more effort to apply than the other brands you sell. You really have to rub the butter in your hands before applying it. It does moisturize well though.
