Shea butter is a byproduct of shea nuts that are harvested from the Vitellaria paradoxa tree in West Africa. Which is produced through an arduous process of harvesting, washing, and preparing the shea nuts from which oil is then extracted. The shea tree is also known as the “karite tree” (which means “tree of life”) because of its many healing properties.
High in fatty acids, shea butter in hair product is an emollient — meaning it provides a layer of oil on top of the surface of a hair strand, significantly reducing the amount of moisture (water) lost.
Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine, is a clear liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. It is odorless and has a mild, sweet taste with a syrup-like consistency.
Natural Hair products containing vegetable glycerine act as strong humectants—meaning, they attract and bind water to themselves. Vegetable glycerine also creates a layer of oil over the hair strand, thus aiding in the retention of moisture.
Centuries ago, the Native Americans extracted a luminous golden liquid from jojoba seeds to soothe, heal and restore their skin. This ancient super-ingredient is unlike any oil, because it’s not one. Jojoba oil is an oil-like wax extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant. The jojobaplant is a shrub native to the southwestern United States. It grows in the desert regions of Arizona, southern California, and Mexico. Manufacturers began adding the oil to cosmetics and food in the 1970s.
Jojoba is another humectant perfect for adding to damaged ends. Because it is very similar to your natural hair oils, jojoba oil can be used to balance oil production at the scalp, aiding overproducing glands that cause oily hair. Jojoba is also non-greasy and will give your hair a healthy, natural shine.
