DIY Whipped Shea Butter Mix For Natural Hair


 Hey lovelies, i'm sharing with you how I make my whipped Shea butter, this is for all my nappy headed sisters that love to make their natural hair products themselves. This mix is packed with oils that promote healthy hair and growth. I personally use this for sealing moisture in my hair, braid outs, twist outs and also as a pre-poo before wash days. This Shea butter makes my hair so soft and leaves it shinny.



Benefits of Shea butter for Natural hair

- Shea butter acts as a moisturizer for natural hair, it helps to lock in moisture in your strands without weighing your hair down.

- Shea butter contains vitamin A and E which help to repair breakage, split ends on damaged hair.

- It helps to remove dandruff, eczema and also soothe itchy scalp.


Ingredients

1 cup of Shea Butter

2 tsp of Coconut Oil

2 tsp of Olive Oil

8 drops of Tea Tree Oil

1 tsp of Castor Oil

Hand mixer/ Whisk

Mason Jar/ Storage container



Directions

- Take a glass bowl and mix all your ingredients together.

- Pour two cups of water into a pot, let it boil. Take the glass bowl and place it over the pot to heat the mixture. This is a gentler way to heat the butter without it loosing its benefits.


                                            The mixture melting in hot water.
