Hello, BHM.  I have been hearing a lot about people making their own shea butter pomades.
 
I purchased the following items: Unrefined Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Sweet Almond Oil.
 
Now I just need to know how to mix it and how much of each. LOL
 
So ladies give me some of your best shea butter or oil recipes that you have used or made. Thanks!!!

Sheabutter, rosemary oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil (melted), and oliveoil.
 
 
You can add glycerin for a more smoother product and shinier hair locs.

I mixed my shea butter with EVCO, grapeseed oil or whatever other oils I have. I don't really measure. Just eyeball it.

Recipe #1: Shea Butter + EVOO (I use this with my KeraCare Humecto Conditioner to deep condition under the hooded dryer for 20 mins)
 
Recipe #2: Shea Butter + Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner + EVOO+ B&B Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion (I mix this concoction together and use as my daily moisturizer. Hair hair loves this stuff!)

I made this really nice whipped shea butter mask thing and it was basically to add shine to my hair.

-Shea Butter [half a pound container]
-Honey [generous amount,  I didn't measure]
-Oil [of your choice, I used different kinds before, like Olive Oil, Gro Aut Oil, Jojoba oil].
-Leave-in Conditioner [I only ever tried Giovanni Direct with it b/c I'm trying to get rid of that].

I basically use it after I've rinse out my pre-poo protein treatment. I squeeze out some of the excess water and spread in from root to tip in sections. Then I massage all around my head and leave in on for a while. I like to put it on before my actual shampoo b/c Aussie moist gets my hair really tangled and weird feeling [not dry but not moist either]. This helps it feel not so weird. lol

Also once I have finished up I add a bit more to my ends with my condish while I deep condition. Then I only rinse out a little of the condish and shea and my hair has Great shine after that. Also, really soft.
