Almond Butter

Anyone has a recipe for almond butter? My hair is dry and I've been using olive and castor oil. But I've heard that almond butter is good for moisture.

    Unfortunately no I don't know how to make it, but it does sound interesting enough.

    if you're just talking about making a hair mask (not a product) with the almond butter, i believe you can make it the same way as you would make peanut butter...just put some almonds into a food processor and grind until smooth and paste-like. you may need to add a few drops of oil (almond oil would be best) to aid in the grinding process. sorry if this isn't exactly what you're looking for. either way, i've never thought of making homemade nut butters into a hair mask (actually i dunno if i could take the thought of "wasting them on my hair" haha!) but it would probably work well, although it does take a good amount of nuts which can be expensive.

    I was reading another thread here at naturallycurly about butters. Couldn't you just take an unscented butter and then add almond oil to it like they do here at this website?
