How To Use Shea Butter

How to use Shea butter is straightforward, and it can be incorporated into your skincare and hair care routines in various ways.

Here’s a guide on how to use shea butter effectively.

How To Use Shea Butter For Skin
Direct Application:

A little goes a long way, with Dr Shea’s body butter, so always use it sparingly.

      • Scoop out a small amount of Dr Shea body butter from the container, using clean fingers or a spatula.
      • Rub the body butter between your palms to warm it up and soften it.
      • Gently massage the Dr Shea onto clean, dry skin, focusing on areas that need extra moisture or attention.
      • Allow Dr Shea to absorb into the skin before dressing or applying other skincare products.

Always store Dr Shea body butter in a cool dry area away from heat sources or direct sunlight.

How To Use Shea Butter For Hair
Scalp Treatment:
  1. Section your hair and apply a small amount of shea butter directly to your scalp
  2. Massage the shea butter into your scalp using your fingertips, focusing on dry or irritated areas.
  3. Finally, massage into hair and tips.
    Leave the shea butter on your scalp for at least 30 minutes or overnight before shampooing as usual.

Styling Aid:
Warm a small amount of body butter between your palms until it melts.
Apply the melted body butter to damp or dry hair to smooth frizz, define curls, or add shine.
Style your hair as usual, using Dr Shea as a natural alternative to styling products like gels or serums.

Reduces Scar Appearance

Shea Butter Scarring

Scars are natural remnants of the body’s healing process, commonly found on areas of the skin that experienced a penetrating wound or superficial trauma.

Regular application of Dr Shea body butter helps to minimize the appearance of scars over time when applied daily.

Dr Shea body butter helps keep the skin soft and supple when on vacation. Natural SPF 6 can help reduce the effects of the rays of the sun.

Tips to remember:

Choose Dr Shea body butter for maximum benefits, as it retains more natural nutrients.

Warm it Up:

Shea butter has a firm texture at room temperature. To make it easier to apply, warm a small amount of shea butter between your palms or fingertips until it melts into an oil-like consistency.

Apply Sparingly:

A little goes a long way with shea butter. Start with a small amount and gradually increase as needed. Apply it to clean, dry skin, focusing on areas that are prone to dryness or roughness.

Massage it In:

Gently massage the shea butter into your skin using circular motions until it’s fully absorbed. Pay extra attention to dry or problem areas, such as elbows, knees, heels, and cuticles.

Use as a Moisturizer:

Shea butter can be used as a standalone moisturizer for the face and body. Apply it daily to keep your skin hydrated, soft, and smooth. It’s particularly beneficial after bathing or showering when the skin is still damp.

Spot Treatments:

Shea butter can be used as a spot treatment for dry patches, scars, stretch marks, tattoo’s and other skin concerns. Apply a small amount directly to the affected area and massage gently until absorbed.

Hair Care:

Shea butter is excellent for nourishing and moisturizing the hair and scalp. Warm a small amount between your palms and apply it to damp or dry hair, focusing on the ends and dry areas. It can also be used as a pre-shampoo treatment or to tame frizz and flyaways.


Store shea butter in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent it from melting or becoming rancid. If using a shea butter-based product, make sure to seal the container tightly after each use to preserve its freshness and potency.

By following these tips, you can make the most out of Dr Shea body butter’s moisturizing, nourishing, and protective properties for healthy, radiant skin and hair.
