Updated Hair Cream Batch

Friday, November 30th, 2012

In a previous post I mentioned a new hair cream that I made and like a lot. Well, I had time to make another batch, and the recipe is below. Check it out.

In a mixer add:

1/2 cup melted raw shea butter.

1/2 cup unmelted raw shea butter.

1/3 cup melted raw shea butter. I included a little more melted raw shea butter just to increase the quantity.

Mix the raw shea butter until there is a smooth consistency. Then to rest the shea butter, turn off the mixer, and add:

2 tablespoons  - homemade Lavender Oil.

I make my lavender oil when lavender is in season. If you cannot find fresh lavender flowers to make the oil, replace this ingredient with any favorite oil. I am running out so I’ll replace the lavender with my homemade rosemary oil when time come.

2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil.

Turn the mixer on to a low speed to incorporate the ingredients. With the mixer on – add:

1 tablespoon of Agave.

2 tablespoons of Vitamin E Oil.

2 tablespoons of Sweet Almond Oil.

2 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil.

2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil.

With other homemade mixtures I made a mistake by using too many drops of various essential oils. As a result my hair became dry and it broke off. So now I use 1 or 2 drops and that is it. If I use up to four different essential oils in one batch, then 1 drop of each oil will be more than enough.

I like the mixture to be fluffy and thick.

Pour the hair cream in a glass jar.

I had to test the texture one more time. Thick and fluffy. The way I like it.

I’m done.
