The Difference Between Yellow and Ivory Shea Butter

 Shea Butter

I am often asked what is the difference between Yellow or White Shea Butter, which is better yata yata… First shea butter comes in those small nuts and the color is an off white or biegey or ivory kind of color. They parboil the shea nuts and then it goes to a milling process. You can actually search for videos of women making the shea butter in a more detailed process (google or U tube). I am not going that far into the details just briefly to explain the yellow coloring.  So the yellow and white come from the same Shea Nuts but are processed differently. For the yellow shea butter, a root from the borututu tree is added in the milling process, and gives it that tumeric yellow color.  Some think palm oil is added to give it that yellow color but no palm oil is required to make yellow shea butter, it goes through the same process as the white shea butter. Therefore they both have same qualities. FYI some african make a tea from the bark of the borututu trea that is said to help with liver functions.

So again, the yellow and white shea butter are from the same Karite Tree but are procesed differently.  The Karite tree is grown in Central and Western Africa. Some people confuse Kpangnan African Butter with Shea Butter because it is also yellow.  You will find some vendors selling this butter under the name Yellow Shea Butter, most don’t know the difference but some do, but will tell you it is the same because of the popularity of Shea Butter.  Kpangyan Butter is grown in Central Togo and is used for skin care.

Now Shea Butter also has different grades, Grade A is usually reffered as the white unrefined 100% Raw Shea Butterit can be consumed and used in the comestic arena. It contains more shea nuts than grade B sheabutter. Now Grade B shea butter comes in white and yellow but has *less shea nuts ( I know kind of hard to explain), it actually seems softer than grade A. Grade B shea butter can not be used for consumption only in cosmetics. * I think the meaining of less nuts is that through the process the Shea Butter Nuts get smaller. So that is what’s meant by it has less shea butter. Remember they parboil the nuts, let them dry, sort them, mill them, boil them, cover and let them sit again, so as the process goes on the butter balls get smaller.( Sorry trying to explain as simple as possible.)

Refined Shea Butter – cleaned, bleached, and deorderized – can not be used in cold process soap but can is usually added to cosmetics such as lotions and creams.
Unrefined Shea Butter – as it is smells nutty and is off whitish, can be used in cosmetics and cold process soap.

There is even Organic Shea Butter, this where some might disagree with me which is fine, I think that’s a bunch of Hooplah. If its is 100% Raw Shea Butter then it is just the same quality as Organic, it is the same Karite tree. I feel its just another reason to charge you extra money.

The Truth about Avocado Oil for Hair Growth

Can avocado oil actually help with hair growth and just what is in it that makes it so good for your hair?

Despite many websites giving a long list of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fats and amino acids supposedly in avocado oil. And then giving reasons why all of these nutrients are responsible for its hair growth properties, the truth about using avocado oil on your hair is actually much simpler and more powerful.

First a little cleanup of some of the avocado oil hair growth myths out there.

Online Myths About Avocado Oil

Firstly, avocado oil is not a significant source of protein. It is an oil after all and the whole purpose of extracting an oil is the removal of proteins, carbohydrates and any other substances that aren’t fat based. Take a look at the nutritional information on a bottle of it and you will usually see the protein content listed as zero.

While fresh avocados are a great source of vitamins and minerals, the oil itself does not contain the same sort of broad spectrum of these nutrients.

Even a good cold pressed avocado oil like this, with its gentle manufacturing process, is still created by separating the oil from the rest of the pulp. Obviously, many water soluble vitamins like vitamins C and the B vitamins will be largely removed. Fat soluble vitamins on the other hand, and one in particular as we shall see, are concentrated instead.

Finally, while it does contain some omega-3 alpha linolenic fatty acids, the amount is relatively small (taking a good fish oil or using flaxseed oil on your hair is your best bet here). Far more important, from a hair benefits point of view, is the extremely high content of monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil.

Avocado Oil Hair Growth Nutrients

The monounsaturated fatty acid content in avocado oil is even higher than extra virgin olive oil and is one of the main reasons it is so good for your hair.

Many people’s hair is dry, damaged and weak from poor nutrition, heat styling, chemical treatments and environmental pollution. Monounsaturated fats, when applied directly in a hair mask, can moisturize, nourish and strengthen hair strands, improving the way they look and protecting them from damage.

Massaging avocado oil into your scalp also stimulates blood flow to your hair follicles. With improved blood flow and circulation to the scalp, more nutrients can reach the follicles to stimulate new growth and healthier hair in general.

Finally, and perhaps most beneficially for hair care, its monounsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols and high levels of antioxidants like vitamin E, are well absorbed into our scalp and hair shafts. This not only has a highly moisturizing and protective effect against environmental stressors and damage, it may also stimulate new growth and help unclog blocked follicles.

The combination of antioxidant vitamin E, moisturizing plants sterols and the rich levels of monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil, provides three different nutrients that have been individually recommended for stimulating hair growth, in one simple, highly absorbable topical treatment.

While there are no clinical trials I’m aware of (and are unlikely to be since pharmaceutical companies can’t patent natural treatments), many people report positive results with using avocado oil for hair growth.

3 Ways to Use Avocado Oil for Better Hair

Applying a high quality cold pressed avocado oil to your hair will improve its appearance and texture while strengthening and moisturizing the strands. See the page on treatments for some simple homemade ideas that are likely to be far more effective than your expensive store bought conditioners.

Massaging avocado oil into your scalp stimulates circulation and allows it to penetrate in deeply, providing beneficial nutrients, unclogging blocked follicles and, it is reported for many people, stimulating new growth.

Last but not least, use the oil for healthier cooking and as a recipe addition or salad dressing. Good nutrition on the inside can be just as important for strong and healthy hair in the long run.
