Shea butter for hair care

Every hair type has its own characteristics when it comes to good, type-appropriate hair care.
Shea butter tends to be used for all hair types in different forms:

  • as hair mask
  • as leave-in conditioner
  • as hair tip care
  • as Anti-Frizz
  • as scalp care for dandruff or itchy scalp
  • als a styling product

Here the hair type plays an important role when it comes to the quantity, exposure time or regularity of the application of a product. In general, it should be said that the curlier the hair, the more fat and moisture it needs. It is important that moisture is always bound with fat. The thinner the hair, the less fat it will tolerate.


For intensive care, the shea butter is distributed throughout the moisturized hair and works overnight. After washing the following morning, the hair is well cared for and feels soft and silky.

For short hair treatment, spread the shea butter over the moistened hair and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes. The overnight effect, however, is much more intense.

Shea butter can also be used as a leave-in conditioner to tame the hair and give it a slight shine. Rub a little shea butter between the palms of your hands and spread over the ends of the hair. Watch out for fine hair: Better not to use too much, otherwise it may look greasy quickly.

In general it can be said that applying products on damp skin helps the treatment, same like the application for skin care.

If you have a hair treatment ritual that I should know about, yes yes yeeees – let me know!
