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

Ingredients:
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*

Directions:
Blend Ingredients with hand mixer until smooth

    This sounds heavenly. I have a no solids rule for my hair, but I think I'll make some for my mom. She's always complaining about how dry her hair is.
