My mission this year is to really take care of my hair. I mean take great care of my hair. It’s funny, like most hairstylists my hair is usually last on the list to get pampered and my goal is to even the playing field. I have been busy in my kitchen creating tons and tons of hair recipes for my natural ladies. My goal is to make haircare more assessable to everyone. With this, I will be sharing some of my recipes here and on my YouTube channel. Below, I’m going to share with you my DIY shea butter and aloe moisturizer.
Natural hair needs a bit more love and care as it tends to be dry and prone to breakage. So with this butter, you will be able to coat the hair and allow the vitamins from the shea butter to prevent hair breakage. I have been loving the aloe vera scalp oil I created in my previous post. However, I wanted to also create a creamy hair conditioner for my strands. Remember, the key to natural hair is to retain as much moisture as you can. This butter is sure to lock in moisture and hydrate the hair for weekly maintenance.

I recommend you apply this butter to your hair at a minimum of once a week. This will vary depending on your hairs texture and moisture levels.
