Your hair and skin deserve to be smooth and moisturized without the use of harmful chemicals and additives. That’s why you need to incorporate shea butter into your beauty toolkit.

This holy grail ingredient works wonders for dry and damaged hair (and the rest of the body). Here’s what you should know about this incredible ingredient found in all of our shampoo bars.

What is Shea Butter?

Farmed in West Africa, shea butter is derived from the seeds of the shea tree, also known as the karite tree. There is historical evidence that people have used this ingredient for thousands of years, dating as far back as the 14th century.

With high concentrations of fats and vitamins, shea butter is perfect for moisturizing and softening the body. It is also used medicinally to heal burns and injuries.

5 Shea Butter Benefits for Hair

Shea butter is known as “mother nature’s conditioner.” It is the star player in our shampoo bars for a reason. Here are just a handful of benefits of using shea butter for your hair.

  1. Smoothing Flyaways Does your hair constantly feel like it is in a wind tunnel? Don’t fret. Shea butter effortlessly works to bring down your frizz and smooth away flyaways. Add it to your beauty routine and see your mane change from frizzy to shiny.

  2. Soothe Your Scalp Dry and irritated scalps are no match for shea butter. The anti-inflammatory properties of the ingredient work to reduce irritation and redness without causing additional damage.

  3. Prevent Breakage Every time we comb our hair or use damaging heat products, our mane starts to break. While we don’t recommend throwing away your comb, we do advocate for using shea butter. Its high fatty acid content penetrates deep into your hair follicles, protecting it from harm.

  4. Protect Against Heat We all know it. Using heated tools can damage our hair in seconds. The good news is that shea butter absorbs into our strands without leaving a greasy feel. It goes to work protecting your hair against heat.

  5. Lock in Moisture Is your hair parched? Add shea butter to your routine and watch your hair transform from dry and damaged to smooth and shiny. Filled with vitamins and fats, this ingredient restores hydration and moisturizes hair effortlessly.
