Results of my SheaAloe Custard Mix


I made some Shea-Aloe custard for my hair and twisted them 4 days ago. I just untwisted them today. I love the results! My hair is well defined and very soft and moisturized. I have not moisturized my hair for 4 day, with the exception of a light spritz with Aloe vera juice mixed with water last night. I am in love!

A simpler version of this recipe can be found here: http://www.naturalhairrules.com/shealoe-shea-butter-aloe-vera-gel/

My twists right after applying the custard:


By the way, I was going to call the mix a SheaAloe Butter mix, but since it is no longer 100% a butter because of the mixture of the Aloe Vera Gel, I decided to call it a Custard.

Here are ssome other recipes with Shea Butter that I would like to try:

Ingredients
¼ cup coconut oil
2 heaping tbsp shea butter
2 tbsp aloe vera gel
1 tsp jojoba
1 tsp vegetable glycerin
¼ tsp vitamin E
¼ tsp fragrance oil of your choice
Directions
  1. In a small bowl melt together the coconut oil and shea butter in the microwave until it is just melted.  Do not boil it.  I nuke mine in 30 second increments until the shea butter is almost completely melted.
  2. In a measuring cup, measure out the aloe vera gel.
  3. On medium speed with a hand mixer, start beating the melted shea and coconut oil.  While beating, slowly add the aloe vera gel.  The mixture will start turning white.  Beat for about 3 mins.
  4. Leave the mixture to cool for about 30 mins.  As it cools it will thicken.
  5. After the 30 minute period beat the mixture for 5 -10 mins to incorporate more air and make it lighter.
  6. Add the vegetable glycerin, jojoba oil and vitamin E.  Whip until completely incorporated.
  7. Add your choice of fragrance oil (I chose oatmeal milk and honey fragrance oil) and whip again until completely incorporated.
  8. Spoon into a container and store in a cool dry place.
