I whipped up a new hair butter!  Shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, safflower oil, and a hint of rosemary oil.

You?

Hmm, I have all of that except the safflower oil. I might try that one. LOL I didn't mix anything today, but I might tomorrow. I'm trying to make a buttery concoction for my dd's hair that is the consistency of Cantu shea butter leave in.

Last night I attempted flax seed gel. It came out alright but I didn't like how it felt in my hair, so today I whipped in some jojoba oil and shea butter. I ended up with a concoction similar to curly butter that I am now using to twist with. So far I like it. I'll know if I love it when I'm done and my hair is dry Wink

 NG, I was gonna try ur recipe, but I only have Aloe Vera Gel instead of the juice and I had no xanthan gum, so I did the flax seed gel the normal way but I mixed in some AVG and EVOO. I think I will have to go get some of that gum tomorrow tho cos my mixture is starting to separate.

Sheabutter and olive oil
 
-heated the shea butter over a double broiler on low until completely melted
-added 2tbsp of olive oil to the mixture and put into the freezer for 5minutes
-mixed up with hand mixer and put it back in the freezer for 5mins
-and so on until it's smooth and creamy --it took only 2sit ins inside the freezer to turn solid and creamy

girl AVG in any form is VERY STUBBORN, it does NOT want to mix, adhere or stick with ANYTHING. You MUST have some kind of emulsifier to keep any aloe mix together.

Once you get the FSG right, you will LOVE it.

Natural girl I am indebted to you. I got the xanthan gum and tried the FSG with it. I still didnt' have any aloe vera juice so I still went ahead and used the gel I have to boil the flax seeds in but the results are awesome! I think I may have boiled the seeds for a bit too long tho cos I got a reallly gelly substance when the mixture cooled, but wow did it bring out my coils and waves! I'll be attempting a bigger batch next week Big%20smile

Can I say I told you so? This stuff is the best. And it is soooo cheap to make. I pay under a buck for half a pound of the seeds and I get so many batches from that.

I had a bit of ORS Replenishing condish that I mixed with some Lustrasilk shea butter cholesterol. To that concoction I added the remainder of banana baby food I had in my fridge (from a previous DC), some EVOO, Avocado Oil, Amla oil, Jojoba oil and wheat germ oil. I'm gonna DC with this mixture tomorrow and see what happens. I'm thinking and hoping my hair will be super moisturized.

For my hair shea butter, coconut oil, tea tree oil and a dash of peppermint oil.

Since I choose today to shampoo and condish, I used my black soap shampoo then I mixed some evco and calendula oil (just cuz) into my Lekair Plus cholesterol to deep condition for about half an hour. Then I will rinse and use a leave in conditioner and seal.

Today I tried my hand at a homemade smoothie. I used:

- 1 overripe avocado
- 1/2 cup grapeseed oil (ran out of EVOO)
- 1/4 cup coconut cream
- 1/2 cup AVG
- 1 tablespoon HE HH condish

I blended everything together and the result was this:
I slathered some in my hair (froze the rest) and put on a bag. It felt delish on my hair. I can't wait to wash it out and feel the end result!

I just had to post a review of my avocado smoothie. It is veeerrrryy moisturizing! I found that my coils and curls seem to have been relaxed a bit tho. I think that's because of the coconut cream. But I will def be using this again. The amount I have in the freezer should be enuff for at least four more treatments.

Ooohhh, I forgot to add: coconut is protein, so if your hair is protein sensitive you can either use less coconut cream, or substitute s'thing else for it. HHG!

I've run out of most of my natural ingredients and I had to DC my hair today. So I mixed:

- 2 tablespoons of coconut cream
- 1 large leaf of aloe vera
- 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil
- and an eyeball amount of HE condish

The result was like a hair mask and very slimy because of the aloe. I put in on my hair, put on a shower cap, put a plastic bag over that (recycle ppl!) and then put my silk bonnet over that. So right now I have my hair marinating in the stuff. Will post how my hair feels when I wash it out later.

Attempted a mask today: aloe vera gel, coconut cream, salt, honey, grapeseed oil and emu oil. I eyeballed the amounts, slapped it on my head, put on a plastic cap and left it for an hour.

I made a homemade deep conditioner yesterday. Loved the effect of it on my hair...and even the way it feels today.

-Amla oil (or evoo/coconut oil. I used amla cause I'm trying to finish it)
-a bit o'water
-half a soft ripe avocado
-2 tablespoon softened coconut cream
-2 tablespoon neutrogena triple moisture mask
(you can pretty much add a bit anything laying around that you are trying to use up)

Put that in a little food processor and blended it all up. It had a thick creamy consistency. 

I pretty much left this in my hair for like 5hours while I did my chores. Kept shower cap on with a towel over it. My hair felt really moisturized. Not sure which one of the contents did it but it's all good.

3 overripe bananas
2 tbsp raw honey
2 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp amino acids
came out to a brown/caramel color
smells like something I would throw out
I know there are a bunch of recipes with similar ingredients out, but I'm just using this as a conditioner. I hope it works.

Once a month I do something I call Hair Food because it's basically food!
Ingredients:
Olive oil
Mayonnaise
1 raw egg

Mix everything on a bowl, massage scalp with it and make sure my hair is entirely covered by it. Put plastic film to cover it for 2 hrs, then rinse, put a leave in conditioner and when it's dry coconut oil. And when I do it, I rinse with an anti dandruff shampoo that I only use once a month because if I don't I get a bad case of dandruff and is no bueno!
