i have shea butter its 100% and dark yellow and it does my hair and skin so good, but it STANKS. like the smell is very heavy and it doesnt go away. the smell is so rancid it even makes my head hurt. i tried to mix heavily scented oils in it but the smell still prevailed. i was going to toss it but it does wonders for my twist outs.

does your shea butter also smell horrible? if not where do you purchase it? please, i would like to know!

I've purchased the ivory/white one from Wholesale Supplies Plus and you can get a sampler of it to see if you like refined, unrefined, etc., (you pay for it but you get to try different butters).
