    I have been a natural hair person 3 years out but am allergic to all nut/peanut based jells, oils, butters &
    perfumes.
    All the organic products for natural hair are peanut/nut based. Who sells hypoallergenic natural hair care products.
    Thanks

      I can’t think of any product line that identifies themselves as hypoallergenic. Sounds like you’re looking for shea butter free products so look for products that have some of the ingredients mentioned in the above post.
