Castor oil, Olive oil, Coconut oil, Flax Seeds, and 100% African Raw Shea Butter

Castor oil, Olive oil, Coconut oil, Flax Seeds, and 100% African Raw Shea Butter

 

Hey Beauties, today was a well relaxed day for me. This week I received a 32oz of 100% Raw African Shea Butter.  Oh, yea, I am such a happy girl. I decided that ordering a tube of Shea butter will help me save a lot more money. I’m free to add whatever is good for my hair with my Shea butter, and increase the amount as well.

MY SHEA BUTTER MIXTURE

INGREDIENTS & BENEFITS:

  • Castor Oil=cleans the scalp of any impurities that would inhibit maximum growth
  • Coconut oil=It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion
  • Olive oil=is good to moisturize the dry hair, fights scalp irritation and dandruff control. It’s highly recommended for those who have thick hair and stiff hair.
  • Flax Seed Gel=Leaves hair soft, shiny, and moisturized
    -Promotes hair growth
    -You can reuse the flax seeds
    -Cost effective (more for your money)
    -Nourishing for the hair rich in omega 3
    -Gives great curl definition
    -Gives hold with no crunch/non flaking/not drying to the hair/doesn’t cause breakage/or shedding
  • Shea Butter=excellent moisturizer and lubricant for preventing dry hair and scalp
    -can make the hair softer, smoother and more manageable

    -absorbs quickly into the scalp hydrating the hair and scalp without clogging the pores

    -protects the hair from weather damages

    -It repairs damaged, processed or heat treated hair, and promotes hair growth.

Mixing all of these products with my Shea butter, has given my hair so much life.

The consistency is like pudding, and its lighter. My Vatika oil gives it a nice lemon scent.

My Shea butter was blended together without heat. Only a blender. Without heat my Shea butter pudding keeps all of its vitamins, and fatty acids, etc.

    hi i like your pudding i have been experimenting with this but cannot get the shea to blend with flaxzeed gel without lecithin. What amounts do you use?

    I know that when I make my flax seed gel it last for about 3 weeks before it gets old. My question is if you add the shea butter and oils does it last a long time?

    • When add flax seed to any of butters, it’ll last about a month. Lately I’ve been adding tea tree oil to my shea butter, and so far its lasted about a month and 1 week, (refrigerated).
      Sorry for the late response.

    do you think Roux Porosity Control Corrector & Conditioner is okay to use as a conditioner for someone who is natural. i was recommended it by someone because i used to press my hair

  4. How much of each ingredient do you use? And where do you get shea butter from? (Iʻm trying to find a reputable source for raw organic unrefined).

    When did you add the flaxseeds to your mixture. and what about using avocado oil vs. the castor oil?

    I really enjoyed this post.

    Thanks

    Do you think you will be making a video anytime soon?
    And if I wanted to add essential oils for a great smell, doyou have any recommendations of any combinations?

    • Hi, Monica. So sorry for the late response. I’m not sure when I’ll do another video anytime soon. I’m currently taking a class on video fusion. Hopefully I become tech savvy. 🙂
      And to answer your second question, I suggest Jasmine oil, and lemon. Two of my faves! 🙂 Thanks for your support!

    Hi…I found your site a few days ago. I have been natural for four years. I have been unhappy with store brought products and tired of spending so much money on products for my daughter and I. I stated using flaxseed gel about a month ago but would like to be able to blend Shea with the gel for optimum effects. Can you be a little more specific about how much of each product you used. I hate to sound repetitive but after reading the instructions above and the comments that followed I am still unsure. You said you used a 1/2 cup of each oil and 1/2 cup of Shea? So…do I just make a regular batch of flaxseed gel and blend that with the blended Shea plus oils? Please help… I really need to get this right as this seems to be the best combination for my daughter and I.

    • Hey, sorry for the late response.
      For me, to fill a 8oz container, I use a 1 cup of shea butter, and 3/4 of flaxseed. Then add a tsp of evoo, coconut oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e, and a scent oil.
      This is what I currently use. And I love it.

  8. Thank you for updating the ingredient amounts. I have been looking for a recipe for a while and so glad I found this. 😊

    • Hi Emelia. You want to use a cup of flaxseeds with cup of water, stir while it simmers. The water will turn into a thick consistency. Keep stirring until the consistency becomes thick, gel like. once done, strain the gel.
