Hey ladies,
I thought I might as well post my recipe. Btw I use raw/ unrefined shea butter i get the 8oz jar from the African store in my area for roughly around $5.00 (not too bad if you as me!)

Whipped Shea Butter Recipe:
2-4 lrg Tbsp. Raw shea butter
2-4 lrg Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil
2 generous squirts of organic honey
1-3drops of any oil blend (optional)

Melt in microwave bout 20-30 sec. Mix well and pour into a small 2oz jar (baby food jar is fine to use). Put in freezer for 5-10 mins. to let harden. Store in cool dark place.






Still loving my curls and kinks!
Products I love:
Ion Dandruff/Seborrheic Dermatitis Tar Shampoo
Suave Shea Butter Conditioner
Biolage Scalp Therapy Shampoo
Biolage Fortify Therapy Shampoo
Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner
Shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, apricot oil, peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil
I dont have a mixer is there another that I can make a moisturizer?

I just put some shea butter in a bottle added some hot water so it'll melt and I am shaking it as I do this. Hopefully, it'll ended up being some moisturizing water. Then once the water cools, I will spritz it on my hair. IDK how this will work.

So if you have any other tips, just let me know.

I use a combination of too much is the same thing to put things one by one, the hair, it saves time and only you, your hair will benefit all the ingredients at once. I also like the feeling mounted shea butter mixed with my hands and my hair.

I've been wanting to make a shea butter mix for my hair for a while now; but yesterday I went to my local natural food store, found some and did the most dissapointing thing ever: smell it. It stank soo much that I put it aside. Then I decided to check out if maybe I'd buy some essential oil to get rid of the smell. Bad thing is, shea butter cost 16$, and essential oil 14$... My wallet screamed in protest.. Do you guys think shea butter is really worth it? Thanks a bnch, and scuse me for my ignorance :P

When I first started making Whipped Shea-Butter I was under the impression the more exotic the products and intricate the recipe the better the butter; wrong LOL!!! I've now learned to keep it simple with fewer ingredients, but, none the less effective. Here's one of my recipes for someone who's new to the art.

"Queen's Whipped Shea-Butter Recipe"

1 pound Raw Shea-Butter
1 TBS Panthenol
1TBS Silk Amino Acid
3/4 cup Veg. Glycerin
2 TBS Organic Raw Honey
1 TSP of Essential Oils of choice (optional)

Melt Shea-Butter in the Upper portion of a double boiler, place in a large mixing bowl and mix for 5-10 min. with an electric hand mixer, place bowl in the freezer for about 10 min mix again for 5-10 min, keep repeating this process until Shea-Butter has the consistency of whipped cream. Separately mix the Panthenol, SAA, Glycerin and Honey together well, then add them to the whipped Shea-Butter repeating the whipping process 2x more.. Enjoy!!!

This is Shae's curly pudding recipe. The Recipe:

1 20oz jar IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel - $3.99
4oz Unrefined Raw Shea Butter - $5.99 for 16oz (never noticed any smell)
1oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Using a hand blender or food processor, whip the shea butter. Add the olive oil and while still mixing, add the styling gel a little at a time.

I started using this last year & it became my main styler for the winter. It is way more moisturizing than gel but still has hold because of the IC. Plus these particular portions make alot so it's a good bang for your buck.


For those of you who put honey in your mix, how does it affect the cream? Does the honey affect how long it lasts?

Shea, coconut, jojoba, evol, and castor but may use some vanills or lavender to help mask smell of shea.

This sounds like a good time saver!

is whipped shea butter supposed to be grainy? or shea butter in general? i made 2 batches of the whipped butter. the 1st was really liquidy (too much coconutoil) and the 2nd one was more whipped looking and to my liking but both were really grainy. help?
The key to keeping your Shea butter or mango butter from becoming grainy is to use slow low indirect heat. When the butter is heated too quickly and at a high temperature it will cause the butter to turn grainy. Using the microwave can be a little tricky because it heats unevenly and hot spots can occur. The double boiler option would be a great choice to melt your butter. Heating the butter no higher 175 degrees and no longer than 20 minutes will keep it smooth. I hope that helps.
I am thinking about whipping shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter, does the mixing make the products softer than in their original form (the cocoa butter is so hard)?

But Cocoa Butter, is hard and you have to melt it down a bit, I put it in a micro safe bowl and heat it up 30sec at a time till is soft, Not melted.

I have whipped aloe vera gel, coconut oil, shea and cocoa butter. If you find your mix being to hard add more aloe vera or coconut oil, and then whip it for a longer time, until its soft and light like clouds (seriously) it willy stay soft and fluffy longer.
