Alternative to Shea Butter

I love using shea butter in my hair and use it daily. Unfortunately, someone I interact with is highly allergic, so I am looking for an alternative to it for days that I know I will be around this person. I am always leaving shed hairs, no idea why I am not bald, so it could be an issue.
My hair is mostly 2c/3a (as far as I can see)but I have several sections of very prominent 3c sections that stick out from the rest of my hair even with heavy product, let alone without. I also have very dense hair.

Any thoughts on what might work?

    I've never used it myself, but there is something called mango butter, and that may have a similar texture.
