SheaM vs. Shea Butter

By January 27th, 20216 Comments

Hola Chicas!

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:
SheaM vs. Shea ButterI’ve purchased SheaM from (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 Your cheapest bet will be from the local BSS. I pay about 8 bucks after taxes.

Find my review of SheaM here.

Find my reveiw of Afrikan Repbublic Shea here.

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!

Later Gators,

    I love SheaMoisture, I wish I would have tried it sooner. It’s great on 4b hair as well. I’ve used it alone on wet and dry hair for twists and I had the best twistout. Ladies if your hair likes shea butter you won’t be disappointed.
