To and Flo Hair: My Whipped Shea Butter Mix

Shea butter is one of my favourite things to use on my hair. I like it because it is really thick and it does a good job at sealing the moisture in my hair. My hair is very thick and dense so I need heavy products to make my hair feel good. I tend to use shea butter after moisturising my hair with my Cantu Leave In Conditioner. 

I usually add a few oils to my shea butter mix and I am not too particular about the oils I use. I don't go out to buy oils specifically for my shea butter mix, I just use what I have in my house. 

In my most recent mixture I used:

  • 550g Shea Butter
  • 4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons of Almond Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons of  Castor Oil
  • A Mixing Bowl
  • An Electric Hand Mixer

I mix the shea butter and the oils together until it has a soft creamy consistency.
