3. Shaving Cuts & Bruises
Love a fresh shave? Well, how about a shave that provides moisture, too? Instead of using store bought shaving cream, try slathering a layer of shea butter over the area you want to remove hair from. The shea butter will not only protect the skin from the razor, it will provide your skin with beneficial moisture it especially craves after a fresh shave.
4. Bug bites
Just in time for the warm summer months when mosquitoes and the pesky bites they leave on your skin are a huge downside. Shea butter has anti-flammatory properties that help relieve the skin from bug bites. It rids you of the swelling, as well as subsides the aggravating itch.
5. Dermatitis and dry scalp
Shea butter is effective in soothing a dry, itchy scalp or dandruff. It absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy residue or clogging the pores. Being rich in vitamins A and E, it soothes dryness, repairs breakage and mends split ends. But as with anything, don’t use it too much on your hair because it can change the texture to not retain as much moisture as it needs. Occasionally is great.
