Benefits of Shea Butter
It’s no secret that shea butter is a favorite among the natural community. But do you know why? Here are a few ways that the use of this timeless butter can benefit you.
Helps to repair damaged hair.
Whether you’re transitioning from relaxed hair or have done a lot of color treating to your strands, regularly applying shea butter can help in the repairing process. Application of shea butter can help restore the moisture that gets lost in these situations, protects the hair from harsh weather and other elements that cause damage. It also has a low SPF that can help prevent sun damage. Aunt Jackie’s Curl Spell — Almond Milk and Shea Butter Moisture Masque is a great product to help you along your journey to healthy hair.
Works as a hair loss preventative.
If you know anything about shea butter, then you know that it’s jam-packed with fatty acids. These acids, which are predominantly made up of stearic and oleic acids, are good for conditioning the scalp and providing the nutrients that the hair needs for growth and health. The anti-inflammatory properties are also beneficial for preventing hair loss.

One of the key culprits of breakage and split ends is lack of moisture. By applying shea moisture to your tresses, you’ll be able to assist in avoiding that. In turn — due to the richness that shea butter has of vitamins A and E — you’ll help keep both breakage and split ends at bay.
