Hey Ladies!!! Okay so I'm a lover of Shea Butter to seal my hair after moisturizing, I use Coconut Oil on my ends though, it has always left my hair very soft and helped me retain moisture VERY WELL! I used West African Shea Butter for a while and it did its job, my hair was moisturized. I decided when the WA Butter was finished, I would try the East African Butter, I researched a couple sites and found the most legitimate one to order my butter, and it wasn't too expensive. I've been using the butter for a week and I should tell you that I DO NOT have to moisturize daily (even though I do) My hair feels so smooth and soft and it literally melts on my hair, it is just healing it entirely...I have so much NG right now because of a botched relaxer and my hair is the softest and most manageable its ever been! So I'll spread the good news and tell all you lovers of Shea Butter, I'm not trying to Dog WA because I favored it for a while, but if you can afford it, BUY EA Shea Butter....Its WONDERFUL!!! HTH & HHG!
