Butters that work magic on the skin and hair

Apart from Shea butter, there are a few wonderful alternative butters that work magic on the hair and skin.

avocado butter



1. Avocado Butter: Avocado Butter is great for the hair and skin. It contains vitamins A,C,E,K, These vitamins help to thicken and strengthen your curls, they provide anti-oxidants which condition and moisturize your scalp, hair and skin. They also help reduce hair loss, soften hair and provide a shine for the hair. Furthermore, it contains beta carotene which helps prevents dandruff, encourages hair growth and imparts a healthy glow on the skin. Avocado butter is healing for damaged hair and skin, it functions as a rich natural hair conditioner and it’s also a natural heat protectant.

mango butter



2. Mango Butter: This is also a rich moisturizing butter full of vitamins A, C and E. It works to combat free radicals found in the sun’s rays and pollution. When applied to the skin mango butter can protect the skin from the sun’s rays and can sooth sunburnt skin. Mango butter also has excellent sealing and moisturizing properties, which means it keeps the hair softer for longer periods. Its high saturated fat content allows it to penetrate the hair cuticle and fortify the hair from within. The vitamins in mango butter also help nourish the hair and scalp, thereby keeping the hair both healthier and longer.



3. Cocoa Butter: Unrefined cocoa butter is an amazing substitute for Shea butter, unlike mango and avocado butter which I find have a very mild scent, cocoa butter has an amazing nutty scent. It melts at body temperature and it’s full of antioxidants which help fight free radicals that cause aging to the skin. This butter is also said to reduce stretch marks, although, I can’t guarantee this because I haven’t used it for that purpose. It provides deep hydration for the hair and skin because it is also high in fatty acids. Cocoa butter contains a plethora of nutrients including calcium, protein (essential for hair growth), potassium etc. It moisturises the scalp without clogging the pores. Due to its high fatty content and nutrition it stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss, furthermore, like castor oil it increases hair thickness.

murumuru butter


4. Murumuru Butter: Its composition of essential fatty acids and Pro-Vitamin A helps restore elasticity to damaged and aging skin. It is also excellent for dry and cracked skin, and useful for healing eczema and psoriasis. Murumuru butter is wonderful for conditioning brittle, dry and damaged hair. It’s also essential for moisture retention as it creates a semi permeable barrier that is said to prevent moisture loss when applied to wet hair. It keeps our kinky curls soft, supple and shinning.
