why does shea butter smell so bad?

It's hard to put shea butter in your hair and on your body because the horrible scent will linger. Is there any way to put something in shea butter to give it a nice scent?

ive never noticed shea butter having a bad smell to it but you can try dilute it or other words water it down. maybe add your fav fruity smelling conditioner (leave-in conditioner would be best) or try adding a little mint or honey.
next time, try using an essential oil. I put lavender in my shea butter. It's soothing and it has its own hair perks, too. :)
