How did you first discover BGLH Marketplace?
Two years ago I started my natural hair journey and was looking for a product that would seal in moisture and not freeze in my hair during the winter. At the time, I spent a lot of days outside in the snow and very low temperatures. After Googling products for dry weather, I discovered shea butter had the highest recommendations. I also read that whipped shea butter worked best because it not only locked in moisture, but absorbed faster.

BGLH had the best reviews from customers on quality combined with the cost per ounce. My first purchase was in March 2017.

How do you incorporate our butters into your skin and hair care regimen?My daily routine includes a water based moisturizer for my skin and hair, followed by a fruit scented butter for my skin and lavender for my hair. I wrap my hair overnight.

My experience with facials goes back a long way. Back in high school when my teenage hormones caused my skin to wild out, my mom started sending me for regular facials at a popular chain of Caribbean aestheticians. Back in my Miami days, I wrote a popular spa review column [...]

We take texture seriously! We work with really rich and dense ingredients — raw butter and oil — so it's important that we whip our butters to be light and non greasy with maximum absorbency. Below is a short video of what our butters look like when they are close [...]
