If your strands are a little brittle, and your scalp is feeling itchy and dry then it sounds like you could use some extra moisture in your life. Give your hair some good old tender loving care, and make those locks lovely again! You don’t even have to make a trip to the salon for this one either! All you need for this conditioning hair and scalp treatment is an hour and about half a cup of Palmer’s Shea butter and either a shower cap or plastic cling wrap to cover your head with (although if you have hair that is longer than shoulder length you may need to use more Shea butter). Keep in mind that this treatment should be done before you take a shower because Shea butter is a little too rich to use as a leave in treatment in my opinion, even if you use the littlest amount, you’ll still be left with greasy looking locks.
Before your shower, and before you apply the Shea butter make sure you brush your hair. Brushing all of the tangles from your hair will only make your life easier while applying the mask so don’t forget to detangle! Start by taking a small amount of the butter and massaging it into your scalp. Once you’ve coated your scalp with a very thin layer of Shea butter start coating your strands. Put a generous amount of the butter on your strands on especially saturate your ends then wrap your hair up in a hair bun and pop on that shower cap for 45 minutes to an hour or even half an hour if your pressed for time. After letting the masque sit you can take a shower and shampoo and condition your hair as normal.
