Heat Caution & Summer Care

Heat Caution, Summer Care and Shelf Life

Kyra's Shea Medleys uses a variety of butters and oils, especially shea butter and coconut oil, to make our organic products. As two of our ten fundamental ingredients that are more prone to melting during the hotter seasons of the year, Shea butter melts at 95 degrees Fahrenheit and coconut oil at 76 degrees Fahrenheit. It is best to store our products in cooler room temperatures from 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit. During the spring and summer seasons especially, we highly recommend ordering our whipped products to be delivered to an address where items will NOT sit in the heat for long periods of time. We CANNOT accept returns and we DO NOT apply refunds for products left outside to melt.

However, you should not be discouraged. A great characteristic of natural butters and oils are that they retain their qualities in both liquid and solid forms. They can easily be transformed back to a more solid form by refrigeration (gently stir cream first) or just storing them in a cool, dark place.

Summer Price Increase on Butters

Beginning on June 20th, 2017 (the official first day of summer), we will ship all packages containing Butter Creams and Baby Butters with ice packs and/or dry ice. This will help the Butters maintain their whipped consistency that you all love. For us to continue to provide our high-quality Butter Creams during this summer season, we are temporarily charging an additional premium fee per Butter (fee will be included in the retail price). Here are the summer price ranges: 

Small $5.99 $6.99
Medium 11.99 $13.99
Large 19.99 $22.99
X-Large 31.99 34.99


Again, these increased prices are only temporary during the summer and will be removed upon the fall/autumn season. The first official day of the fall/autumn season is September 22, 2017.

Summer Shipping Notification

All orders will be shipped via USPS 2-3 Day Priority Mail from this point on to ensure speedy delivery. We encourage all orders containing Butter Creams or Baby Butters to ADD "Confirmation Signature" as it allows you or a member of your household to sign for your package.

After placing your order, please check your emails for your order confirmation as well as tracking information and delivery status. If you decide not to add the Confirmation Signature option to your package, we encourage you NOT to leave any of your hair and skin care products sitting outside in the heat, unless you are trying to create a natural hot oil treatment (ha ha!).
