DIY Homemade Whipped Shea Butter Cream

Hi there,
 This weekend I was busy whipping up a favourite staple of mine -Whipped Shea butter cream. I use it as a sealant and I LOVE it so much because it L.O.C.K.S the moisture in. I'm talking about 3 to 4 days of soft well moisturised hair and for me that's awesome. Basically it involves whipping up Shea butter, one or more oils, Aloe Vera Gel  (or not) and whatever else takes your hair's fancy to create a super creamy heavy duty sealant. Here's my version :

Ingredients
Shea butter
Aloe Vera Gel
Glycerine
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fragrance ( I used sweet pea body fantasy)



Olive Oil, Aloe Vera Gel, Fragrance, Glycerine &Shea butter 
I whip the Shea butter first to loosen it up
Then I add the Olive oil, Aloe Vera gel, Glycerine and Fragrance

I whip it all up

All done... looks so yummy doesn't it?

 
 



 You may have noticed that I used a food processor rather than a hand mixer to do the whipping. I don't have a hand mixer so I improvised with the food processor and it works really well. Also since I do not have any essential oils I used a body spray as my fragrance and although I love the sweet pea scent its recommended that you use an essential oil to add fragrance.

So there you have it, my whipped shea butter cream. It has changed the face of my healthy hair journey for the better and I love it!

I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
