Welcome. I can't remember right now, but Shea Butter might leave too much residue in your hair. Eagle would know better. There are better things you can use to moisturize your hair. Aloe is one. Jojoba oil is the best, though. The more you maintain your hair, the slower it locks, though
What maintenance do you do? Just about all maintenance will damage your hair and make it so that if you ever want to start over or go back to straight hair, you'd have to shave your head or cut it very close to the scalp.
The bands don't help either. Like Eagle and Heather said. Bands get sucked into your locks and lost. They start to dry rot and cause mold and mildew to grow in your hair. The also squeeze your locks too lightly and create weak spots that don't knot up
Welcome and Happy Dreading..
