My Whipped Shea Butter Mix




**FIRST PIC IS OF THE SHEA BUTTER CREME (MIXED W/ WATER) AND THE SECOND IS JUST THE SHEA BUTTER MIXED W/ OILS.
Of course I'm not the first person to mix their shea butter with oils to create the perfect styling creme/ butter but I chose my oils according to what I like and my hair likes. First shea butter is a natural moisturizer for the hair and will do what those old school pomades and greases use to but without the damaging ingredients. The oils I chose to use are coconut for the repairing and strengthening properties, olive for the moisturizing properties, jojoba for the smoothing properties, and tea tree oil because it fights dandruff. Of course the peppermint oil is for scent and you can choose whatever scent you like.




Ingredients


at least 1lb of unrefined shea butter (it doesn't have to be exact)


1 tbsp of olive oil


2tbsp of coconut oil


1tsp of jojoba oil


10 drops of tea tree oil


15-25 drops of peppermint oil (or your choice scented essential oil)




Directions


in a mixer using a whipping blade (I used the magic bullet) whip together the shea butter and all the oils. I don't know if it will do this w/ your mixer/food processor but the butter will melt down and it will appear liquid-y...let it sit in the fridge to become a solid again!




***IF YOU WANT TO TURN YOUR BUTTER INTO A CREME, ADD WATER!! What I did was take half of my shea butter mix and put it back in the mixer and slowly added water. No I did not measure. Do it until you get a thickness to your liking. If I guess-stimated I'd say it was 1/2-1/3 cup of water. The creme is great for twists b/c you can feel the hydration coming from the added water.




Okay guys! You won't be disappointed I promise!




Peace and Blessings!

Hi please be careful when adding water. Without a preservative
it will go bad quickly. But other than that I love whipped shea butter esp in the
winter. It keeps my skin baby soft!!

I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound
up here "My Whipped Shea Butter Mix". And I actually
do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.

Is it only me or does it appear like a few of these responses look like they are
written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on
other social sites, I would like to follow
anything new you have to post. Could you list of all of
all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

This design is incredible! You certainly
know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
it. Too cool!
