Several of you have asked me if I’ve replaced my Afrikan Republic Shea Butter with SheaMoisture Shea Butter leave-in. Others have asked what the SheaM looks like and where to purchase it.
To clear up the confusion:
I use SheaMoisture as a leave-in along with DevaCare One Condition, on soaking wet hair, prior to twisting. I still use African Republic 100% Pure Shea Butter to seal my wet ends, and re-moisturize dry ends. Here’s an image of the SheaM bottle:
I’ve purchased SheaM from www.sistasplace.biz (they’re currently out of stock), my local Beauty Supply Store (I’ve found it at 2 stores in my area…shop around), and from www.beautyofnewyork.com. Your cheapest bet will be from the local BSS. I pay about 8 bucks after taxes.
- Ingredients: Shea Butter, Deionized Water, Herbal Complex, Panthenol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E.
I hope this clears some things up…bottom line is that I use both!
