i recently purchased one pound of mango/cocoa butter. it's very moisturizing, so i don't need much for my homemade recipes.

currently, i use my butter in homemade [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Miss-Jessies-Curly-Pudding-p-578.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=miss-jessies-curly-pudding]curly pudding[/buylink] and to boost my cholesterol deep conditioning treatment.

    it a pre-mixture. i bought it from oils by nature (http://oilsbynature.com/) for a very reasonable price. they have all kinds of wonderful butters and oils.

    I have to admit I have more butters than I can use. I bought some pure ones (pumpkin, grapeseed, tucumu) and haven't done a thing with them. I really like my commercial brands -- Jane Carter Nourish and Shine, Kinky Curly gloss pomad, Qhemet Heavy cream (it is a cream though, not a butter).

    How I use - between washes, scrunch a little into dry hair to soften. After wash rub into ends either before or after conditioner.

    babydollringlets: i think it was like $10. if you fill your cart, it will calculate shipping. it won't charge your credit card until the end, so you can change your mind if shipping is too much.

    thx for the info. i called myself making some whipped mango/cocoa butter today. i knew it would be moisturizing, but goodness. it took forever for it to soak into dry hair. i'll try it on damp hair when i refresh my twists.
