Shea Butter: The All Purpose Hair Product


Shea is a great all purpose beauty product. It can be used for so many different purpose, but people really love to use it in their hair. Shea butter can be used on the scalp to soothe itchiness caused by dryness or psoriasis. When massaged into the scalp it conditions the hair follicles and can increase circulation to the scalp promoting healthy hair growth. For this reason, shea butter can be used for growing the hair long, and it can be used to strengthen and condition the hair as well. Deep conditioning the hair can be done by massaging a shea butter and coconut oil or shea butter and olive oil concoction down the shaft of the hair and into the tips. Leave it on for a deep condition and long term moisture, or use the mixture in a spritzer bottle to loosen knots and detangle the mane.


EuGenia Shea is an all purpose shea product that is one of the highest shea butter concentrations on the market. It is hard to find a shea butter product that works just as hard socially and environmentally as it does on the hair and skin. Eu’Genia shea is a company formed by a mother and daughter duo who work hard to give back and make sure their business is performing a higher social need. Their employees who harvest the nuts are all women who live in Ghana. These women now have access to higher than average paying jobs and they are able to take care of themselves and their families.


This strong duo also makes sure that 15% of their profits go back to the women who harvest the nuts so they can have access to education. This 15% goes back to the women in the form of an educational fund so they can have an education for themselves and their children that they may not have had access to.
