    "The next morning, I felt no powder residue at all from it in my hair which was quite a surprise to me. I was wondering where did the powder go :look:? It's just weird to me I guess.

    Remember I already said above that my mix is extremely smooth but if I hold it in my very sensitive hands, I can feel the powder. I am a Massage Therapist and Esthetician. My hands are trained to feel anything foreign, no matter how tiny."

    @Aggie ,

    Your are a 'tactile' and touch EXPERT! That's what makes your 'testimony' so powerful.

    I keep forgetting that you live in Paradise where the climate is always warm/hot!!

    The mixture with the powders are magical because of the benefits of each component in the mixture. Strands and follicles have no other choice but to get strong, healthy and grow.

    I can't wait to use my shea mixture as a deep conditioner. I plan to use it by:

    Ayurvedic Shea Mixture
    Any good deep conditioner
    Mix
    Apply to hair by sections, ensuring each strand is coated, thoroughly concentrating on the ends
    Sit under dryer or whatever heat method preferred
    Rinse
    Style

    I don't want to limit my usage to just a leave in. I plan to use it to deep conditioner as well.

    ETA: If you have any extra mixture left, simply use it as a prepoo, minus the deep conditioner. Leave on hair for an hour with or without heat. Using the mixture as a prepoo will cut down on tangles, single strand knots, etc. Nourish the scalp and hair prior to shampooing. Your hair will thank you!

    It's very, very finely sifted.

    I mixed some in with my Unrefined SB and a little Grape Seed Oil. Then Whipped it with my Electric Mixer. It whipped to perfection.

    Will use it like any other SB mixed with an Ayurvedic Powder.

    I couldn't decide whether to use Rice Bran or Grape Seed and went for Grape Seed.

    No grittiness, no graininess. I didn't even have to use a Fra.grance Oil to mask any kind of off-putting scent.

    Her hair is about 22 inches. She has been growing her hair for 4.5 years. She has been natural for the last 3 years. She uses shea butter.

    At minute 2:43, you can see how her hair started out and how it USED to look!



    Her hair now: The hair is magnificent which is typical of hair that is treated with Shea butter on a regular, consistent basis.



    In the second video she talks about having used chebe for 5 weeks. In my mind, the beauty of her hair is not from chebe. Her hair is magnificent and I would say that's from her years of shea butter use. In the second video, at @10:56 seconds when she is rinsing, you can she the health and incredible beauty of her hair.

    She doesn't use a comb! She DOES NOT wash in braids, though. See her method of how she keeps her hair separated at around @11 minutes.

    I use a oil blend of two parts Hot Six oil, one part Shea butter and one part coconut oil for my body after a shower. I have using this for years in the winter, in the warmer months I do half Shea butter and half coconut oil. I have warm it in the microwave for 30 seconds in order to use in the winter.

    I just made another oil blend for my hair. 2 parts K organics oil, 3 parts Shea butter and 1 part Mane Choice Growth oil.

    I will use whipped Shea butter for my braids under my wigs. The hair oil blend as a part of my LCO method.

    Sprayed my ends with water and then applied my shea mixture.

    Sprayed my braids/scalp with this mixture:

    I scooped some of the cream into the spray bottle and then added the liquids

    I’m experiencing severe breakage at the nape area and my texture there is much rougher than any other part of my hair. It’s dry and even if I moisturize it with water, oil and sheabutter, a couple hours later it’s extremely dry again and breaking off. I don’t know what caused it (the metal clips from my wigs, the relaxer I put on it 6 months ago to try to get it silky straight enough so I can wear my hair out, or the fact that during wash day I always put my hair in jumbo twists pulled back in a ponytail under my wig).

    I don’t know what to do to get it to grow back. I thought moisturizing with Shea Butter would be the cure.

    You always post the best videos. Thanks. I’m gonna try whisking mine next time like this instead of using the blender because this is the texture I want. I’m also gonna try making it without coconut oil.

    Marinating in my Cream Shea Delight Treatment Mask. Decided to get fancy with it and sit under my steamer. My hair is feeling like a million bucks!

    I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Believe me I do understand since I've suffered from hair breakage but from using a demi-permanent far too often, which by the way, was very recently. I am using the shea butter and henna treatments to whip mine back into shape.

    Seem like you have some idea of what's going on and that is always a great place to be because you have some idea of where to start making corrections in your regimen. Eliminate all those things you're doing now and incorporate more delicate habits for your hair. Maybe continue to twist your hair but don't pull it back so tightly and use satin scrunchies to do so if you are not already. This is a start and I really hope your hair improves quickly :bighug:.

    Thanks so much, and I will. Hubby is taking me shopping today so I'm good with that. I want that new kitchenaid mixer, but of course, it's upwards of 500 for the 8 quart.

    However, for everyone who wants one, Zulily.com has them at 50% off now..... I'd much rather have clothes and jewelry lolol..

    I really want to make some more shea mix. A friend of mine in DC wants some, so I told her I would make some for her an her mom. That is one of the things I plan to do today.
