Default Whipped, Solid or Liquid?

Which is better for your hair, whipped shea butter, solid shea butter or liquid shea butter?

I've only ever used solid shea, which is kinda difficult to apply to my hair. I've used shea butter "oil", so I'm not sure if that's the same as liquid shea butter. Whipped sounds good, where can you get it?

You can buy it in health foods, or go online to whip it yourself. YouTube has some videos on how to whip shea butter.

This is very interesting. I don't know that one might be "better" than the other. One form may be more concentrated though and I would think Shea Oil would be it. I LOVE Shea but can't take the Oil form in my condish but my hair does well with Shea Butter. I've never tried it Whipped that sounds Del-ectable!

Liquid shea is just fractionated shea in oil form. I don't use on my hair but my body loves it. I like a really good quality raw unrefined shea that is soft enough to emulsify in my palms and doesn't have to be mixed or whipped to soften.
