For years, I was very cheap with what I’d spend on body care… I mean ultra cheap. If it wasn’t on a buy one get one free sale or if I couldn’t coupon to get it near free, I wouldn’t buy it. I was trying to be as frugal as possible with everything, and the strategy did help my finances over time, but it left my skin in just ok shape at best. It was clean but never felt hydrated enough, appeared very dull, and was rough. As I met my savings and debt-payoff goals over time, I started to indulge in better quality products.

Your Best Shea Butter Mixture


Hi everyone, welcome to my hair care series!  I have very thick, tightly coiled 4c hair, and one of the things my hair has been loving is shea butter/oil mixtures.  I’ve been using it as the last step in my moisturizing regimen after washing or co-washing my hair to seal my strands, and it locks the moisture in perfectly.  The only thing I do to re-moisturize or refresh when I use my shea butter mixture, is lightly spray my hair with water in the evening, and I’m good to go.  I posted an Instagram picture of my shea butter mixture last week and got great feedback.  So, I thought I’d share some tips to help you make your best mixture.
