Try It Tuesday: Natural Shea Butter Hair Mask & GIVEAWAY/ Review Beauty By Shea Organic Shea Butter



You can easily make a hair mask at home using one simple ingredient, raw organic unfiltered shea butter. That's it! No artificial ingredients, nothing else besides shea butter. I had the opportunity to try using the Beauty by Shea Organic Shea Butter and see how it works on my naturally curly hair that I color.

My hair frequently dries due to the nature of naturally curly hair, combined with the fact that I color my hair, combined with the fact that I spend a lot of time outside in the sun and wind. I welcome anything that helps me make my hair look and feel healthy. The fact that this is just one pure organic ingredient is just wonderful and the fact that it works is even better!

A little goes a long way with shea butter. I have medium length hair and need a quarter size dollop of shea butter. Unrefined shea butter melts really quickly when you rub your hands together and can easily be applied to you hair.

Start at the ends (which are the driest and may have split ends) and work towards your roots. If your hair is longer you may need more shea butter. Once your hair of covered as much as you desire, cover it with either a shower cap or a hot towel. This will work with heat released from your head and help the shea butter to be absorbed into your hair strands. Allow to sit on your head for 20-30 minutes, then shower as usual.



My Thoughts:

This works really well as a hair mask and you do not need a lot. I am happy with how it works and love that it is just one simple organic ingredient and nothing else. I also use it as a moisturizer on my elbows and knees, both of which get quite dry and absorbs the shea butter quickly. It also works well to moisturize your feet. Just rub on your feet before bedtime and cover with socks and allow to absorb over night. You could do the same thing with your hands if you are prone to dry hands. No need to have multiple products in your beauty cabinet when you just need organic shea butter that can do what normally you might have several products for.

I've only used Shea Butter for homemade lotions. I'd never heard of a Hair Mask before but it totally makes sense that it would mositurize dry hair. I love Shea Butter...it's natural, organic...and really does work!

I have bought products where the main ingredient is shea butter but never used it in my hair. I generally do not like doing hair masks but this one sounds pretty easy.
