ZoyiaZoyia Posts: 167Registered Users
Hi,

I want to make a hair butter. Something creamy, light with no greasy after and that won't weight my 4a/4b that is very fine if it's dense.

I was thinking
Unrefined cupuacu butter that is a creamy soft butter
Unrefined brazil nut oil
Watermelon seed oil
Baobab oil
Manketti oil

How do I make a hair butter?
Do have to melt the butter with the oils and this it?

Do have to melt the butter and oils then whipped in the blender?

Please help me!!

    First you don't need all those oils, Brazil nut oil is a nice yet rich oil and if you are using that you only need a little of it. And if you are using a soft butter you only need to whip it until fluffy and then add your oil. Sometimes adding aloe vera gel makes your butter a little thicker. If you are using a hard butter you need to melt it down in a double boiler and then add your oil mix it and place in the freezer.

    Ms Kitty, Have you ever used brazil nut ? you said it's rich, how rich is it:rich like in leaving hair greasy, or rich but is well absorbed?
    I was going to do add the other oils just for their properties, do you really think it's too much?
    If I add tha aloe vera, how do I preserve the butter: fridge, vitamin E, grapefruit seed extract ...
    I will do 4 ounces or 8 ounces

    Thanks

    So, is it necessary to keep the butter in the freezer? I don't want it to get hard.

    the best way to make a butter, is to use a hand mixer the same that you would use to mix cake batter. Whenever I make some whipped hair products I find it easier and less of a hassle than using a blender.

    I did some research on the oils that you want to use, and I also think that you are using too many of them.. you really should try to keep it simple. Do not try to over do it some of those ingredients do the same thing.

    you can get alot of these things at www.mountainroseherbs.com . I try to get most of my ingredients from the same place. This way you can have confidence in your creations.

    Some things can also be purchased from the healthfoods store. However you should still read the labels VERY carefully. I was just at the one in my area just browsing and noticed that the shea butter that they happen to sell is refined as opposed to unrefined.

    Hope this helps.

    The baobab oil is such a silky, high-quality oil, I would not mix it. I am using straight both on face and hair.

    I would add a little of one or 2 of the other oils to the capuacu butter and whip it. A little AV gel wouldn't hurt either. If you add the AV gel, use a preservative (grapefruit seed extract, citric acid)
