Au Natural - Hair Concoction for Dry Hair

I was on Curlynikki website and came across a video by Naptural85 (this took me on a passage of no return—I was clicking on nearly all her videos). Pretty much love at first click. FYI: We share the same hair type *4a - Slightly tight small coiled hair, Prone to breakage due to lack of natural moisture*).

So Anywho, I came across one video explaining a few concoctions she uses semi-daily on her hair: Shea butter base product and Coconut oil base product.

I instantly grab everything I could find + the sink ^__^ (didn’t have jojoba oil so I just subbed it for safflower oil)...

Shea Butter Base (Thicker Creme/Pomade)

-Unrefined Shea Butter at Room Temperature (5 spoons)
-About 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
-About 1 tsp Olive Oil
-About 1 tsp Castor Oil
-About 1 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
-About 1/2 tsp Vitamin E

I use the Shea butter base product as a pomade and the Coconut oil Base product as a Sealant (Apply this right after my leave-in).

Coconut Oil Base (Liquid/Sealant)
- Coconut Oil 1/2 Cup
- 1/2 tsp Castor Oil
- 1 tsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Jojoaba Oil
- add a table spoon of shea butter base mix

***I had so much fun doing this since I love playing with mxtures anyway.

Here's a hair pudding I fell in love with during the summer:

++ I recycled my Cantu Shea Butter tubs for my new creations.
