I use to despise Shea Butter when I first became natural; I mixed very little to a balanced amount of oils etc <—Well so I thought, until just before I gave up totally on it, I made the best batch ever of all time and now I am reaping and enjoying the full benefits of this awesome butter.
Here is how I mix my Shea Butter, the ingredients and the end results, enjoy. Any questions comment below and I will do my best to help.
100% Unrefined Shea Butter
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Pure Jojoba Oil
Pure Avocado Oil
Traditional Jamaican Black Castor OIl
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Apricot Kernel Oil
A Deep Bowl
You will also need you a Hand held Blender
A few containers to store your Shea Butter when the mix is complete; save those lotion containers, honey jars and Chinese take out soup containers. They serve their purpose.
Now, lets get to mixing, the perfect hair sealant fro ones kinky, coily, thick natural tresses.
Portion out the amount of Shea Butter you would like to whip up, there is about 250g of unrefined shea butter in the bowl below.
I always whip my Shea Butter until it’s creamy and smooth before I had any other ingredients to it. I do this as I find when I add my ingredients in afterward, the second whipping of the butter. The ingredients are blended in much better. The end results of the Shea Butter is creamy, smooth and fluffy,
After I my whipped my Raw Shea Butter to make it creamy I proceed to adding the rest of my ingredients as listed above. Unfortunately I do not measure, I eyeball according to the amount of Shea Butter I used and how creamy and smooth I desire the end results.
This is all my ingredients added to he Shea Butter and I am now getting ready to whipped/blended all the ingredients for a nice fluffy, smooth cake like frosting for the end results.
The end results, a nice creamy, smooth, fluffy cake frosting Shea ‘GOODNESS’ Butter for my hair.
I then proceed to jar up my mixture.
This large container, I store inside my fridge and when I need to top up my smaller container. I will take out, allow it to cool down some; which allows the butter to become soft again. Then I proceed to fill up my smaller container and then return the larger container to the fridge
This is my my small every day container of Shea Butter store outside the fridge. Enough to last me a week or so for my sealing.
Waste not want not, clean that Shea ‘Goodness of a’ Butter out completely
To top it all of here are some pics of my hair with Water and Glycerine as my moisturizer and I seal with my Shea Butter mixture.
These are some pics of how I have been wearing my hair during the week we got us some SUNSHINE here.
Hope this post was helpful and enjoy the hair pics, stay tune for the next Diary entry.
