Keeping my eye on this thread.

Does everyone use shea from West Africa or from East Africa (Nilotica) to mix?

Simply Shea Butter and Hairveda's Vatika Frosting whipped is the best butter I've tried yet. I even skipped on Qhemet'ssale because I like this better than their amla and olive heavy cream and burdock root buttercream.

I use Butters n' Bars shea butter (about 3/4 of a 4oz container) and 2 tablespoons of Vatika Frosting. I added a little at a time and whipped until I got my desired consistency. It is smooth, creamy and smells great!! Best butter ever.

Default Re: YOUR best "whipped" SHE BUTTER RECIPE

I dont have a set recipe


for hair

the method I use is to melt shea butter in makeshift double boiler (stainless steel bowl set over a pot of boiling water)

make sure not to allow the butter to boil.
add which ever oils I want - normally olive, avocado, coconut, or palm)
then whip with a mixer for 5 mins
set in freezer till it reaches a soft set
whip again for 5 mins

repeat until u get the consistency u wish - I normally repeat abt 4 - 5 times


for my body, I make it more runny, like milkshake texture - by adding more oil - usually more olive or coconut oil

I have yellow shea butter from shea and more and also white shea butter that my BF got for me in Kenya. I alternate between them and use both in my hair and on my body

Default Re: YOUR best "whipped" SHE BUTTER RECIPE

My mix is the following:

8 oz. Pure Unrefined African Shea Butter (hard, yellowish)
2 oz. ExtraVirginOliveOil
2 oz. ExtraVirginCoconutOil
2 oz. Jojoba Oil
2 oz. Jamaican Black Castor Oil

You'll notice equal parts of shea butter & oils (both 8 oz.) I whip these together in a mixing bowl using a hand mixer until the consistency is fluffy and creamy. Then I pour into multiple containers. No water, means no need to worry about molding. This 16 oz. mixture usually last me about 6months, since hubby now uses it daily on his "fro" too. I don't refrigerate it, I simply store it with my other hair products, like my ORS Carrot Oil, and my BB Oil Moisturizer creams. The mix never goes bad, or turns rancid. The JBCO in it keeps all the "cooties" away...LOL! (what is JBCO? Jamaican Black Castor Oil )

I use this mixture 2x's per week as my scalp "grease".
I aslo use this mixture for sealing my ends.
This stuff is GREAT!! I love, love , love this mix and its a keeper for me & the family.

I used
2ozs of shea butter
1oz of Coffee Bean Butter
1oz Cupaucu Butter
1oz of JBCO Oil

3ozs of Long Aid Activator Gel

I mixed the the butters and oils together and then I slowly added the gel.

It made a very wonderful and nice twist butter. Try it

First, I'm sorry if anyone else has already posted a similar recipe, I've looked into the recipe sticky and found no similar formula.
I make a shealoe butter that is very easy to make and is great to moisturize my natural hair. I can also use it on my body.
I was at first reluctant to post it because it ideally requires the use of a preservative, but I like it so much that I decided to share it with other LHCFers.

Here is the recipe (by weight):

46% shea butter
25% aloe gel
5% glycerin
20% vegetable oils. You can use olive oil, avocado oil, wheat germ oil or whichever oil you like best. I like to use lighter oils because shea can be heavy enough on its own.
1% preservative

1% Vitamin E : this is optional. However, if you use oil that easily go rancid ( wheat germ, hemp seed...) it's best to add some.
2% natrasorb or kaolin clay ONLY if I want it to be less greasy on my skin. If you like the formula without it, you can omit it and add 2% more oils.

Whip the shea butter until it becomes smooth and light ( about 10 to 15 minutes).
Slowly add the vegetable oils while you keep whipping.
Add the glycerine and the aloe gel. Add slowly so that the mixture doesn't separate.
That's it!

Notes:

* A preservative is necessary because you include water based products ( aloe gel). Many suppliers ( lotion crafter, ingredientstodiefor...) sell some. Optiphen would be a good choice in that case.
Use the preservative at the recommended percentage, but no more than the maximum percentage.
* If you don't want to use a preservative, this butter can keep for a few months (IME) without spoiling. Avoid putting your hands in the jar.
* You can fragrance it if you want to.
* Work with clean ustensils, if necessary sanitize then with alcohol or diluted bleach. Keep your hands clean during the whole process.

HTH,

unrefined shea butter from Oils By Nature Natural and Organic Oils
jojoba oil

I let the unrefined shea butter melt naturally or use a double broiled (no microwaving for me). Then I mix both ingredients with a mixer until nice and smooth. Then I pour into the container. I've been using this on my hair and skin since February 2010. ps. I do not use this on my straightened hair (way too heavy for that). I use this on my hair when it's in it's natural state. I love it, and I love the fact that it's unscented.

Are you ladies using a preservative in your whip?
Also, what purpose does cornstarch serve in recipes?
