The spot I usually buy my shea butter locally went out of business! Suckssssss. I'm wondering what sites people go to, to buy there unrefined shea butter. I've bought some from Afrikan Republic a long time ago, it was ok but I prefer Golden shea. Which I also saw on there website but I want to know some other sites and what else they may offer before I buy the first one I see (haha mainly talkin about prices here..). AND has anyone tried the shea butter that has lavender or any other scent in it?? Is it good?? My skin is dryer than its ever been and my poor hair is def in need of moisture.

    Hi. I get mine from http://www.butters-n-bars.com/. The owner also sells other hair and skin products (including this hair masque that I love). Her shea butter is of good quality IMO, and she's very reasonably priced (1 lb. of shea butter=$8.00). She also sells shea butter in variety of scents that may be of interest to you. I highly recommend her.

    Have you tried searching on Amazon? I'd like to try small online businesses, but I worry about buyer security. Would Sally's sell this? I think someone on here mentioned buying shea there. I never go in Sally's but am thinking of making a stop.

    I get mine from RA cosmetics. For me, they are the cheapest at 6.99 for 16 oz. You can order offline or see if they have it at your local Wal-Mart or BSS. I get it from the BSS but, I just saw someone say they carried it at Wal-Mart too. It's unrefined shea.

    At my local BSS they sell 8 oz jars for about $5.99.

    I used to get it from http://sheanmore.com while it was a free shipping item. I think it's about $6-7 a pound, but I'm not sure how shipping is now.

    They have other butters as well.
