Post your hair recipes

I bought the following products, but now I need some recipes to use it on my hair! Feel free to share your recipes, with this product or add products if you think it is useful!

I didn't buy shea butter because I think it's really hard to spread it on my hair, any tips about this. If you mixed it with conditioners please explain why you choose that brand and what it does for your hair!

I'm still learning! I really appriciate your recipes! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have 4a/3c hair and these work well for me...



WHIPPED SHEA HAIR CREAM (winter recipe)


I put all of the following into my mini food processor and blend well:

1/2cup raw shea butter (if it's really hard put the shea butter on a saucer over a small pot of boiling water to soften, but do NOT melt it.)
1tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tbsp jojoba oil
1 tbsps castor oil mix (mix 1 part regular castor oil with 1 part Jamaican Black castor oil and put in a jar)
1 tbsp of water
1/8 cup Eco Styler CLEAR Gel

It comes out with the consistency of thick lotion (like eucerin,
or thick conditioner). I use this for dry twistouts and curly fros. It' my healthier version of Miss Jessie's Butercreme


Guacamole Deep Conditioner (for dry hair)
NOTE: if your hair doesn't like protein, then this recipe is not for you

1.5 well ripe organic Haas avocados (this amount works for my hair length, which is now longer than my avatar, but not to my shoulders...you may need more or less)
3 tbsps real mayonaise (NOT Miracle Whip!)
1 tbsps Organic raw coconut oil
1 tbsp Castor oil (optional)
1tsp water
1 small bowl
1 container with a lid
1 metal fork


- Mash avocado meat with fork in small bowl until smooth then put in food processor and whip
- add 1 tsp water to get the avocado to be really smooth (don't skip these steps otherwise you could end up with chunks of avocado in your hair)
- add the oils to the mix and blend some more, stopping to scrape the sides every now and then.
- spoon out mixture into container with lid
- put mixture into the fridge until ready to use


I usually use this once or twice a month after I shampoo. I put it all in my hair, and then I put on a plastic cap and wrap my head with a towel and clean my house or work for a couple of hours. Then I rinse it out well, and style as usual. My hair comes out really soft and happy [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



P.S. - I use shea butter all the time. Mostly for my body, but I put it in my hair also. You don't spread it on your hair like conditioner, you emulsify it in your hands (rub your hands together really fast so it becomes an oil) It is easier to use when it's whipped with something else, and for your hair type, you don't look like you need much. Try just using it on your ends. Hope that helps!

Hello!!! For a great deep conditioner you can mix together the following:

1 egg (room temp)
2 tablespoon of organic mayonnaise or regular mayo
1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil (for dry hair), Castor oil, coconut oil or grapeseed
1/2 teaspoon of cold press olive oil
10 drops of peppermint, eucalyptus or burdock root oil

whisk
together until it's frothy put it in your hair and let it sit with a
cap for 30 minutes, rinse with cool water to seal hair shaft!!

Let me know how it works for you!
