INTENSELY NOURISHING SHEA ROUTINE

Richly replenish dry hair and intensely nourish dry skin with this 6-step routine from Vanda Serrador, Facial & Body Care Expert for The Body Shop.

HAIRCARE

STEP 1: SHAMPOO

For very thin and dry hair, gently cleanse once or twice a week with Shea Butter Richly Replenishing Shampoo. For normal hair, apply as often as you like. Don’t worry – your hair won’t feel stripped of moisture.

STEP 2: CONDITION

Rinse and apply the Shea Richly Replenishing Conditioner from the scalp to the ends of the hair. Pay extra attention to split ends or hair damaged by colourants. It also helps detangle hair and makes it easier to comb, especially if it’s curly or wavy.

STEP 3: HAIR MASK

Apply the Shea Butter Richly Replenishing Hair Mask on wet or dry hair, gently massaging from the scalp to the ends. This intensely nourishing treatment will help protect hair from harsh, cold weather that causes loss of moisture and dryness. Leave it in for 5-10 minutes and rinse off. For best results, apply 2-4 times weekly. For damaged hair, apply to tips daily.

BODYCARE

STEP 4: EXFOLIATE

Gently buff wet skin with the Shea Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub. Massage on dry areas like knees, elbows and heels in a circular motion before rinsing. This will help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. It also improves and refines the skin’s texture and evens your skin’s tone.

STEP 5: CLEANSE

Next, lather up with the richly textured, gently cleansing Shea Shower Cream to help remove any residual impurities. You can also use Shea Soap to gently cleanse skin in the bath or shower.

STEP 6: MOISTURISE

Finally, towel dry and apply the moisturiser of your choice, depending on your favourite texture. The new, multi-purpose Shea Butter has an intensely rich, creamy texture that melts into body, face, hair, lips and feet. For lightweight hydration, apply Shea Butter Lotion. For a thicker texture, moisturise with Shea Nourishing Body Butter. Apply Shea Hand Cream daily, massaging a generous amount into your cuticles. Whenever your lips feel dry, give them rich moisture and protection with Shea Lip Butter or new multi-purpose Shea Butter.
