Shea butter

Ughhhhhh. I newly dx as LP. My hair has always HATED oils and butters. My wonderful boyfriend got me the As I Am cowash and elation deep conditioner during their BOGO sale. ::sigh:: DT has Shea butter 😑 I feel so bad. I tried it today thinking maybe it would be different in a non-styling product. Well no it wasn't. Hair is waxy, straight, and dry. The DT sat on my hair. I places a shower cap over and left it on whole doing the rest of my shower (about 15 mins) hoping the steam would let it on my hair. I don't want to waste all the product (I got two tubs of it). Any suggestions of maybe getting it to "work" on my hair. Or is my LP hair just going to reject it.

Low poo and then try it. Most people who don't like shea butter etc. Have to experiment a bit. I hope you'll get around. Its great stuff. Its just shea buttery products have a thicker moisture factor than say your average idea of a watery conditioner.

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.

I have LP fine hair and the same thing happens to me whenever I use shea butter. What I've found helps me is diluting it with some water first and only using it on the ends of my hair. Given you have 2 tubs of it, you should probably only use it sparingly on your hair. Maybe a pea-sized amount at the most. If it doesn't work on your hair, maybe you should return it or find other ways of using it. Shea butter is great as a lotion. Maybe you could use it to shave your legs.

Your deep conditioner has a wax in it (cetyl esters)! It should not be surprising that your hair feels waxy.
Ahhhh did not know that about the cetal esters!
