Nature gifts us with its most precious source for perfect hair – Vitellaria paradoxa – commonly known as the Shea tree and, as everything comes to those who wait, perfection takes time. Some 50 years to be exact for an African Shea tree to mature and produce nuts. Once harvested, cracked open and grounded following age-old craft traditions, Shea nuts offer up their butter rich in vitamins A, E and F, essential fatty acids, proteins and amino acids. These natural active virtues optimally moisturize dry hair, enhance scalp circulation, and prevent free radical damage.
