Organically certified and raw, natural shea butter is the perfect ingredient to add to your hair butter, hair masks, infusions and is double strained for extra creamy smooth texture.

The Inside Scoop
This rich moisturizing butter nourishes your scalp which promotes hair growth. By adding this to your henna and Ayurvedic hair treatments or masks, it will strengthen the hair shaft, reduce hair loss, and also will improve hair texture affected by chemical and heat treatments.
There are several ways you can use Shea Butter.
Deep Conditioning Treatment
Gently, and slowly melt your organic shea butter in a pot on your stovetop, or use a crock pot. Use the melted cocoa butter in your henna and Ayurvedic hair recipes. Mix well until it blends and add warm water if needed. You can then apply this hair mask to your freshly washed hair and leave it in your hair for 1-2 hours. Wash out throughly with warm water and/or with one of our Cleansing CoWashes. It is a heavy moisturizing treatment so extra shampooing may be needed. Ideally deep conditioning with shea butter is for dry to very dry hair when moisture and conditioning is needed.
Whip your Shea Butter
Soften your organic shea butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, or by placing it in a bowl and then floating it in a bowl of hot water. Using your softly melted shea butter (not liquid but softened only), add hair oils of your choice (olive oil, grape seed, golden jojoba, organic camellia, and argan serum, are amongst the best hair oils to use), and a choice of essential oils (such as our sweet orange, tea tree, lemongrass, rosemary, lavender, and clary sage are the best choices for added hair benefits). For every 1 ounce of shea butter, you can add 1 tsp tsp of hair oils, and about 2-3 drops of essential oils.
Then blend all of the above with a hand blender thoroughly for 4-5 minutes or as desired. The more you blend/whip your shea butter recipe the more air your butter will get into it, making it more fluffy. Store in a cool, dark place such as your fridge.
As a Foot Treatment
Use your organic shea butter, and rub a thick layer all over your feet, including soles. Cover with a sock, and sleep with a this treatment on overnight. In the morning, remove your socks, and shower as usual to remove excess butter. Heals cracked feet, and leaves feet feeling refreshed, nourished, and silky soft.
Dry Skin Spots
Use raw to apply a thick layer on dry, and raw skin areas. Allow to deeply penetrate, and leave on either all day, if comfortable for you, or as a deep overnight treatment.
Using melted liquid organic shea butter, apply onto your hair as a leave in moisturizer. If this is too heavy for your hair, you can also just treat the dry, damaged areas, and ends of your hair. Use to seal, and hold your protective hair styles. Ideally mixing with other oils makes it easier to apply and use.
Soothing Scalp Treatment
Organic shea butter will soothe, and heal irritated and inflamed scalp conditions. Place cocoa butter on the scalp and leave it on overnight. Wash it out the next day and continue with your regular hair regimen and routine.
For general use on skin, take a small amount of shea butter and place it your palm and rub it on your skin. The warmth from your hands will spread the butter all over, and deeply moisturize.
