I don't measure the ingredients so this is in order of decreasing amounts. For anyone who doesn't like the smell of shea butter, both cocoa butter and lemongrass oil mask the scent nicely.

I didn't use measurements but here's the basic recipe:
1 block of Shea butter(eBay)
2 spoons of coconut oil(whole foods brand)
3 pours of aloe vera gel(whole foods brand)
1 tsp evoo
2 generous squirts of honey
if it's too greasy add more aloe vera, I keep the extras refrigerated and refrigerate the one I'm using as often as possible. Works great as a hair moisturizer,lip balm, or lotion. If you don't like even the faintest smell of Shea butter then I recommend putting 15-20 drops of an essential oil such as peppermint or lavender.

I like the NOW brand of shea butter. It has almost no scent and it's not very gritty. I only mix it with jojoba oil, but I might just add some coconut oil to it.

Thanks!

1 tbsp raw/unrefined shea butter
1/2 tsp grapeseed oil
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp LOTD Aloe Vera Gelly

I use the Lily of the Desert brand because my hair is picky and hated Fruit of the Earth. There is a difference between brands of aloe vera gel, and not all aloe is the same.

I might vary this recipe by adding equal parts of mango butter to shea butter to make this mix more moisturizing, and the mango butter can be substituted for the aloe vera gel so it's humectant-free (but still moisturizing) and winter-safe.

I apply this to wet hair and seal with grapeseed oil (since, for my hair, the sealing step of moisturizing needs to be separate from the moisturizer).

Hi everyone i'm a 4b and im new here and i was wondering how you guys use your shea butter..do you use it after washing to seal the moisture in your hair or do you apply when dry or both? I plan on doing my big chop next month it will be one year since my last relaxer! Yay! I plan on making my own shea butter mix with beauty supply store shea buter, africas best herbal oil, fragrance oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel. Is this a good mixture? is it too much? Too little?
Thanks!
Love the mixology ladies. I am going shopping soon and will add my own recipes...

1/2 cup of shea butter
2.5 tsp. honey
1 tsp. olive, castor, and coconut oils
1 tsp buttercream fragrance oil

I melt them all together then put them in the fridge until it's solid. Then I let it sit out until it's soft enough to mix then I mix it with a spoon because I don't like whipped butters. My mix is nice and creamy.
I don't measure my homemade whipped shea butter, spectrum EVCO (for hair & skin), jojoba oil, lily of the desert aloe vera gel, vitamin e oil, essential oil of rosemary, lavender, lemon and rosewater concentrate.
I always order my shea butter online @ agbanga karite.
