I use a mix too, it's the same thing as putting things one by one in your hair, it just saves you more time and your hair benefits from all those ingredients at once. I also love the feel of whipped shea butter mix in my hands and my hair.
This is how I do mine: I warm about 2 ts of coconut oil and 1 ts of EVOO then add the shea butter while the oils are still warm so it warms up a little bit then add AVG and Glycerin. I also added honey (about a tea spoon) then whip everything for about 10 minutes until it gets all fluffy. I think I added more AVG because I noticed it was getting more like a lotion than a whipped mix.
In fact, this mix was posted by someone a few weeks ago, with the exact amounts, I think I just changed a little bit the amounts because my hair loves glycerin and AVG.
