Che’be’ is infused into Shea Terra original Egyptian Black Castor Oil. Che’be’ is a mixture of croton seed, local plants and mastic which is credited with making the hair of the Chadian women super length. They produce the powder themselves using ingredients they find in the Sahara Desert as well as ingredients they purchase along their nomadic trade routes. Their hair long past their waist lines, and by far the longest hair in Africa and amongst the longest in the world. If asked what makes their hair long, they will answer with assuredly it is God and Che’be’ alone. We have tracked Che’be’ down along their trade routes so the world may now benefit from this amazing product created by the Chadian women.
Ancient Egyptians were marveled for their invention and discovery of a myriad of beauty enhancements. Black Castor Oil was one of their most valued by far. Castor beans produce a thick, emollient oil excellent for dressing wounds, helping soothe the scalp and condition hair. Ancient Egyptians discovered by first roasting the beans and creating ash the oil was even more effective at helping regenerate hair and increase hair growth. This all natural oil can be used as a pre-conditioning oil or a leave in oil for certain hair types.
Shea Terra Egyptian Black Castor Oil is made using an ancient method. First naturally grown castor beans are first roasted and then ground into a paste. The paste is then cold pressed to produce the highest quality oil. Our oil is never produced by boiling the beans which actually adds water with potential for fungal growth.
Egyptian Black Castor Oil has a long track record of helping to improve hair growth, decrease breakage and loss, and encourage new hair growth of hair lost due to pulling and possibly other short-term loss issues. Egyptian Black Castor Oil also helps strengthen and deep condition the hair. The result can often be a superfluous, shiny head of hair.
