I have used it on my scalp just once and it was similar to other oils that I have used so I prefer to maximize the benefits by using it on my body. When mixing the Butter Drops with pure shea butter ( I have whipped shea butter) it is almost like the butter melts and just blends in with the oil to form a nice moisturizing solution for my body.
For $11 I am not breaking the bank and I get to improve mediocre lotions by adding this product. I also get to use it with products that already work well in case I want to include the yummy lemon scent.
I would get this oil again, it is very pleasing to me.
I may take some of you way back and for the younger crowd you may have no idea what I am talking about but here it goes anyway.
As a kid I was always entertained by one of my favorite arts and crafts activities- SHRINKY DINKS. Shrinky Dinks were these little sheets with designs that one could cut out, color in and then place it in the over. Part of the fun was watching your little drawing shrink up in the oven and when it was all done you could hang it up as a little decoration. For some reason shrinky dinks were the first things that came to mind when I decided to talk to you about shrinkage. Shrinkage is what happens to those who do not have naturally straight hair. As our hair grows it it comes in curly and for many, the new growth is coiled like a little spring. Some relaxed ladies who stretch (extending the period of time between relaxers), experience extreme shrinkage, which means the volume is at the top of your head and your hair is coiled up. Natural ladies also experience shrinkage, and if you stretch the strands of hair it can help you to get a better idea of your length. If you have relaxed hair and you are experiencing shrinkage please don't bbe so quick to cut off your hair it it appears to be a little thinner at the ends because there could be a good reason. Shrinkage will bring a great deal of volume to the top of your head so your relaxed hair may appear to be a little thinner but onec you straighten your new growth your ends may not look so thin after all. Now of course this is not a cut and dry rule of thumb, just a suggestion bececause some people may really new to cut their hair whether they have shrinkage or not. I just don't want you to be so quick to cut off your hair expecially if you are stretching.
I included some shots of my new growth-our hair is naturally curly. You can see that the hair is going around like a little spring. SOme people have a tighter curl pattern, but this picture will help you to get the general idea of what your new growth may look like.
Sorry if I have typos, I will fix them later...
Thanks to everyone for your get well wishes. Have a great weekend.
