What do you think of this shea butter recipe?

I found this video by PLTbyCormie on YouTube the other day and I'm kind of interested in trying it, and sort of hesitant.

The recipe is shea butter, other oils and...Eco Styler gel. The gel kind of threw me. I do have a crap load of Olive Oil Eco Styler that I really don't want (soooo over gel at this point) and wonder if anyone has tried using it this way before. If not, let me know your thoughts anyway. :D

    That's going to be a lot of protein and fat ( heavy). If your hair loves protein, then it may just work as a styler (like BeeMine Curly Butter). I wonder if her intention was to make a shealoe type mix, but with more hold and cheaper than buying AVG. It all seems heavy though... I wonder what the absorption would be like.
    Type: 3c with some 4a highlighted
    Low porosity thick/coarse texture. nml elasticity
    Routine: No rules, just happy hair

    Cleanse: CJDF, Prell, LUSH Curly Wurly, Bobeam
    LI/RO:BBB, CJ, SheaM, HEHIS, Garnier, KBN Shealoe, CD Chocolat, Oyin HH
    Styling: CJ, CR, UFD, Zuresh, Ecostyler,MJ
    PT/DT: BBB, CJ, Lather, MJSSB

    HUGE PJJJJJJJJ!!!!:love4:

    @Naturalista - My hair does love fat, but I'm still unsure about protein. Before I started hennaing, I would do a protein treatment about twice a month and my hail loved it. Not so sure as a regular styler though...Good point!

    @shawnyblazes - Thanks for the link! I guess it wont hurt to try once...
