The Power of Shea Butter


The fat of the nut of the African Shea tree (vitellaria paradoxa) is the source of Shea butter. The traditional use of the butter is to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks, and to ease a variety of skin irritations, such as psoriasis, eczema and sunburn. Shea butter is a rich source of moisture, vitamins and fat for your skin and hair. In its natural state, shea butter is a thick, yellowish butter that liquefies at body temperature. Natural anti-inflammatory properties make it a nourishing choice for the scalp, helping to improve your hair growth and health.

Love Your Hair,


Dear Jane


Q:     I have very thick, curly hair that is frizzy and dry. You name it I have had it done in my battle to fight the frizz, chemical straightening, perming, Keratin Treatments, etc. – with no luck.

A:     Most women with curls and coils have tried tirelessly to straighten their hair and ended up with a frizzy mess, to put it gently. We all know that frizz can be the plague of curly hair; whether you straighten your hair once a day, once a week or once in a blue moon, the most important thing to remember is to keep your locks well moisturized. Healthy hair frizzes less, grows faster and develops less split ends. Taking good care of your hair can make your job easier.

Natural Hold Spray Gel is your key to hydrated bouncy hair. It’s a water-based, alcohol free styling agent. Lightly mist hair with Natural Hold Spray Gel prior to heat styling. As you apply heat from your flat iron, the water in the product turns to steam and infuses moisture back into your hair while leaving it soft and springy with a light hold.

Heat protection, moisture infuser, and holding power all in one!

Silicone-Free Shine


Jane Carter Solution has been specifically formulated for dry hair, regardless of texture or ethnicity. These quality products cleanse, condition and nourish hair – kinky hair, curly hair, straight, relaxed, color treated and locked hair. We have recently added a key finishing product to our Hydrate line; Seal & Shine adds incredible shine and reduces dryness.

Shiny Hair Collage

This light, water-soluble, silicone free shine spray moisturizes, strengthens and protects without weighing down or drying out hair. Silicones provide the false appearance of a healed cuticle’ over time, tresses become brittle and further prone to frizz – creating a damaging and dehydrating cycle. Seal & Shine’s anti-humidity formula helps to control and reduce frizz, creating manageable hair with shine!


Can be used three ways:

  1. Cocktail with Hydrate Quench to seal in essential fatty acids and protein
  2. Spray directly onto hair or into the palm of hands to distribute onto hair as a finishing glossifier
  3. Hydrate parched skin!

Get your vibrant shine ON, ladies

Shrinkage Be Gone!


It happens often, you spend time styling your wet hair for it to eventually shrink up to a shorter length. (hmph!) You feel frustrated because you want to show off the length that you worked hard for but you know that shrinkage is normal for curlies, especially those with coarser hair types with a tighter curl pattern. Shrinkage has got to be one of the most discussed problem many Naturals face; for many Naturals this is a major reason they choose to stay away from a wash n’ go style.
