Benefits of Shea Butter
Shea butter is a key ingredient in many Cher-Mere products for the skin and hair! You might be asking yourself what is shea butter? Shea butter is fat that has been extracted from nuts of the shea tree. Shea butter is highly effective in moisturizing the skin as well as some other great benefits. For example:
Shea butter contains high levels of linoleic acid and oleic acid. These two acids work seamlessly together so that the butter is easy for you skin to absorb without clogging your pores.
Shea butter has anti-inflammatory properties which can help calm skin conditions like eczema. Shea butter also has high levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin E. Triterpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in shea butter that can help boost collagen production. It even may help reduce stretch marks, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.
Here are some Cher-Mere skin and body products that contain shea butter:

Why should I use shea butter in my hair?
Shea butter can help prevent hair breakage, help treat dandruff, moisturize and hydrate your scalp. Try our Cher-Mere products discussed above or you can even use raw shea butter directly to your hair. If your hair is naturally curly or porous, consider using shea butter as a conditioner. Make sure your hair has absorbed most of the shea butter before rinsing and styling as usual. You can also use a small amount of shea butter as a leave-in conditioner.
If your hair is naturally straight, thin, or fine, consider using shea butter on the ends of your hair. Applying shea butter to your roots may cause an oily-looking buildup.
