I'm pretty sure Shea Moisture doesn't decide what the prices for their products are, because I see them different prices in different places. I've worked in stores, and the store usually sets the price. Shea Moisture might have raised the cost the stores now have to pay, if anything. However, it's just as likely that the stores in your area just decided to raise the prices (they notice what each other charge for things, and try to stay competitive).The prices aren't universally higher. In my area prices on Shea Moisture have not increased; it's still around ten dollars. If you can get the same results at a cheaper price, then you should do that. But don't get mad at Shea Moisture for something that might not be their fault.
