There is a beautiful tree in Africa, which goes by the name shea. It is possible to acquire a natural product from the seed of this tree which is dull yellow in color or off-white, ivoryish. The great thing about shea butter is that it is a fantastic moisturizer for both the body and hair. The website Treasuredlocks provided a comprehensive story on shea butter (see the link below). For the first three people who comment on this post, you will receive a free gift of shea butter from Natural is Cool Enough as well as a N.I.C.E. t-shirt. Looking forward to your comments! Tell us what you think about shea butter or ask questions if you've never used it. Looking forward to hearing from you and then enjoy, the gift of Shea Butter from Senegal or the Ivory Coast. I use Shea butter on my hair everyday and I love it!
