Hair butter Recipes

Posted on: June 27, 2008

You know that I love hair recipes. So I was browsing courtney’s hair journey, when I came across a post about hair butter recipes. You know that i just had to post it. 🙂

Recipe for hair pomade (Sweetcocoa’s Hair Butter):
 
4 oz of shea butter(unrefined)- melted in microwave…
to which I added the following –
1 tablespoon of amla oil
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of castor oil
1 tablespoon of almond oil
10 drops of rosemary oil
2 tablespoons of aloe vera oil
I put it in the refrigerator to harden. Then take it out and let it come to room temperature. It should be nice and creamy(or if you prefer leave it hardened…works both ways). This is very rich so a little goes a long way. I only apply it to my hair. Works best on damp hair.
 
Cocoa Butter hair crème
 
1oz sweet almond oil
2oz jojoba oil
8oz cocoa butter

Essential oils of your choice
Combine all ingredients, and stir well. Pour into sterilized jars and let sit until it solidifies. It will have the consistency of soft butter at 70 degrees. Melt a small amount in your hands and use on wet or dry hair to keep ends soft and free of splits. A little goes a very long way! Keep in a cool place or it will melt.

10 drops sandalwood essential oil (optional)
Combine all ingredients, and stir well. Pour into sterilized jars and let sit until it solidifies. It will have the consistency of soft butter at 70 degrees.

Hair Oil Recipe
 
Summary:
an oil for moisturizing dry hair
Ingredients:
1 C herb infused olive oil
1 C liquid lecithin
1 T of melted shea butter

A few squirts of jojoba oil

A few drops essential oil for scent
Instructions:
Melt the oils and pour into a bottle. Use only a small amount at a time. I like to infuse my olive oil with conditioning herbs like rosemary, nettle, and chamomile leaves for a special conditioning treat. You can do this by putting the dry herbs in a big jar, then put the jar outside in sun and leave it for a week. Be sure to shake it up everyday. Then strain oil through cheesecloth or a fine strainer to remove herbs. Or, you can put the herbs in a large, plastic measuring cup, pour the oil over the herbs and put the measuring cup inside a large pan filled with water. Simmer over low heat for about and hour, then strain.
 
Creamy Hair Lotion Recipe

6 oz distilled water
1/2 oz shea butter

1/2 oz emulsifying wax
pinch of Vitamin C (optional)
1/2 tsp Vitamin E 1400 IU

Essential oils of choice 30 drops total.
Instructions:
Melt butters and emulsifying wax in a double boiler. When melted completely for 20 minutes at 175 degrees, add oils and Vitamin E. In a separate container add vitamin C to warm previously boiled water and dissolve. When both oils and water are about the same temperature, slowly add water to oils mixng with a stick blender.
Blend 2 minutes, wait 5 minutes. Repeat 3 times. Wait until cool to add essential oils. Blend once more before placing in containers. Store in a cool place or refrigerate if necessary. Use within 1 month.

No you don’t wash the hair butter out. You should keep it in as it helps to moisturize your hair. Though if your hair is fine, a hair butter or pomade might be too heavy for you.
