I used to use it on my scalp instead of a pomade, but it's too heavy since I started using the no poo routine. I use it on my ends once a week when I section my hair and braid it. I think I will use it as a pre-poo treatmeant for the 4x per year that I do shampoo.
I also use it on my skin when I can't find my loition. Since the cost of unrefined shea butter is going down, I might as well use it as my daily body loition.
