5 Ways to Use Bolden Shea Oil for Your Hair and Skin
Do you like shea butter? I know, it’s a silly question. Well if you DO like shea butter, then you’ll probably like shea oil – it’s lighter, more spreadable butter. And if you don’t like shea butter because it’s heavy and difficult to spread and mix, then you’ll probably like shea oil. I recently tried Bolden’s 100% Natural Shea Oil + Vitamin E and absolutely loved it, so keep reading to find out more about the brand, the oil’s benefits, and five ways you can use the shea oil for your hair and skin.
What You Need to Know About Bolden
Bolden was founded by two Nigerian women – Ndidi and Chinelo. Here’s their story:
Growing up in Africa, we had very limited options when it came to our skin care and beauty routines. Today there are still extremely few choices for quality beauty products made specifically for the African woman. After living in the US for decades and experiencing a wide array of brands and products, we believe women everywhere deserve access to good products created for them. While our goal was to create products to meet the needs of African women, we quickly found that there was broad appeal for our simple, pure, results-oriented product lines. It is our desire to serve the beauty needs of women in under-served markets – wherever they are – by developing high quality products that promote beautiful skin. Our mission is to embolden women around the world to celebrate their natural beauty. Believing that true beauty comes from feeling good in your own skin, we seek to create products that give women a sense of empowerment, confidence and pride. We are committed to creating products that are simple to use, yet highly effective, by painstakingly selecting only the finest ingredients for use in our formulations.Bolden's website
So What’s Special About this Shea Oil?
The 100% natural Shea Oil is made from ethically-sourced Shea nuts picked and processed by local women’s groups in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Shea has been used for centuries by the women of West Africa for its richly moisturizing and skin repairing properties. It is prized for its ability to naturally protect against dry skin, sun damage and the visible signs of aging. It’s ideal for dry skin, brittle and damaged hair, eczema, scars and stretch marks, and aging skin.
It comes in three fragrances: sweet vanilla, butter mint, and unscented.
My Thoughts on Bolden’s Shea Oil
After using Bolden’s Shea Oil for a few weeks in the Sweet Vanilla scent, I made a video reviewing the oil and also came up with five different ways you can use it on your hair and skin, including as a deep conditioner, a scalp treatment, a sealant, as a makeup remover, and body moisturizer!
