What do you think about shea butter?
I must confess I haven't used shea butter in a while, but I did years ago. It was all natural shea, in a container. The shea was hard and white, and it took a long time to rub my hands together with it to make it liquefy. Sometimes I'd put it in my hair only to discover it still hadn't totally liquefied, so I had little white shea balls in my hair. It was also a bit sticky. But apart from that, shea butter is good to use. I'm often enough of a mess without walking around little white shea balls stuck in my hair and not knowing it, too. So it's for that reason I stopped using it. Now I use olive oil or coconut oil. Though I still need to warm up the coconut oil in my hands, it liquefies quickly (so no danger of little white coconut oil balls, thank goodness).
