I actually go the shea butter from amazon.com, its yellow organic 100% pure african shea
http://www.amazon.com/100-Organic-We...9025225&sr=8-1

all I do is put scoop out the 3/4 cup shea butter, put it in a bowl (not plastic) and microweave it for 30-45 sec, so its soft, not melted but just soft.

then I add my other oils, take out my and eletric hand mixer and whip it all up. Then I put it in the frige for a bit. It comes out nice and easily melts in my hands.

You may want to make little batches & play around with the oils you add and the amounts to see want your hair likes best.

Hope that helps

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'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
My hair loves shea butter I thinks its worth every penny, I order it on-line for $8, from amazon or butters-n-baars. com. I would check out vitmineshoppe You can get essentials oils for $6-$10.

I'm wondering, when you've ordered from Butters N Bars, have you found their shea to be particularly gritty or anything? I got a tub and it's got a bit more grit/lumps than I'm used to. I know it's a raw shea product and all, so some is to be expected, but I'm wondering if I just happened to get a bum batch. Any chance remelting it would help? Or does whipping help smooth everything out?

Personally haven't tried to whip my raw shea yet, but it's definitely in my plans. I used a pre-made whipped shea product that had soybean oil and sweet almond oil whipped in, so I'm thinking of messing around with those in some formulation.

Out of curiosity, what do you add rosehip seed oil for? The fatty acids/vitamin A or does it add scent or...?

Leave Ins: AO Honeysuckle Rose, raw shea, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, sometimes aloe gel or KCNT
Honestly, as soon as it comes I start the whipping process, melting it down and whipping might make the difference, cuz when I apply its always smooth.

I add Rosehip seed because it has lots of healing properties for skin and hair, I use my shea mix for my hair and body.

shea butter
cocoa butter
jojoba (or hempseed, sunflower, safflower, coconut) oil

I don't add any scented oils because I love the smell of cocoa butter.

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.

Does anyone know what I can do or apply to my hair or shea butter mix to ensure ALL DAY moisture? Usually I apply rosewaterw/ glycerin, then a sparing amount of swt. almond oil, then a tiny bit of shea butter daily... but that's not doing it.. All responses appreciated!!

What do you do with the recipe listed in this post? Do you use it as a conditioner and then rinse out? Thanks. Newbie here

Yes, the mix is for moisture, I dont have to re-apply it daily. And its just great having one product, I know will provide lasting moisture, Shea butter is also a natural sun block so in the summer its great for my hair.

Do any of you know any good videos for this technique?!

I found that I don't like the "nuttiness" of shea butter so I add in a lil cocoa butter to help and it knocks that nutty smell right out. And my hair luvs shea
