Shea Butter for Caucasian dreads
well, essential oils technically are medicinal, not moisturizing so jojoba or argon "carrier" oils are used to moisturize with essential oils added to the carrier for medicinal treatments.
shae certainly is a moisturizing option, but due to its consistency buildup maybe a concern
pure aloe gel straight from the plant, or sold in food grade format as a drink, or food additive is a great option! but be sure that there is 1 and only 1 ingredient..aloe
lily of the dessert i think it is is 1 company that makes a pure aloe
but you are best off buying a few large plants and growing your own..warning however- theres 500 varieties of aloe the 1 you want is aloe vera there are other aloe varieties that are skin iritants and toxic, buying the wrong plant will make your scalp feel like its on fire
be sure to get true aloe or aloe vera ..
jojoba or argon oils are also great choices
aloe is pretty much impossible to cause buildup and is my faviorite choice although i use argon or jojoba more often because i have it available more often
