DIY: Naptural85's Creamy Shea Butter

Making Creamy and Fluffy Shea Butter
About a month ago I purchased some shea butter at the Bronner Brothers Hair Show and I finally decided to put it to use and make Naptural85's Creamy and Fluffy Shea Butter!  I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while, so when I ran out of product to twist my hair, I thought I'd try it out instead of buying something.

The mixture came out creamy and fluffy, just like the name suggests.  I used it to twist my dry, stretched hair in preparation for protective styling.  I was very pleased with the consistency of the product and the way it felt on my hair!  The abundance of shea butter and wonderful oils make this a great addition to any natural's regimen and I will definitely continue using this throughout the colder weather months to keep my hair hydrated.  Full recipe and video below. 

Finished Product

The Recipe

Shea Butter
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Jojoba Oil
Vitamin E Oil
Castor Oil (I used Jamaican black Castor Oil)

*Amount of each ingredient used should be based on amount of final product desired; Oils should only be used to compliment the shea butter, not overpower it*

Blend Ingredients with hand mixer until smooth
