There are natural hair product recipes all over the Internet and women are trying to figure out what is good and what is pure garbage. Most recipes are modeled after the success of product lines like Carol’s Daughter or Miss Jessie’s. If you dig hard enough you will find that most of the time the recipes will include ingredients like oils, juices, shea butter or cocoa butter to name a few.
Here is an example of a receipe you can use for Hair Butter (Found at Long Hair Care Forum)
4 oz of shea butter(unrefined)- melted in microwave…
to which I added the following –
1 tablespoon of amla oil
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of castor oil
1 tablespoon of almond oil
10 drops of rosemary oil
2 tablespoons of aloe vera oil
I put it in the refrigerator to harden. Then take it out and let it come to room temperature. It should be nice and creamy(or if you prefer leave it hardened…works both ways). This is very rich so a little goes a long way. I only apply it to my hair. It works better than anything I purchased for moisturizing. Works great on damp hair. You can use more, less or different oils. Play around with it until you find what works best for you.
