I actually go the shea butter from amazon.com, its yellow organic 100% pure african shea

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
