I was playing around with some of my favorite oils (Coconut, Olive) and thinking about how much my hair loves Shea Butter, when I came up with a very simple (yet now essential part of my routine) mixture. Here it goes:
2 tbs of coconut oil
2 tbs of shea butter
3 tbs of olive oil.
This creates about four ounces of oil. I put it in the microwave for 45 seconds, and although the shea butter is not completely melted, it does so by mixing it with a spoon (I don't want to get it too hot, since I transfer it to a plastic container. 45 seconds seems to be the perfect number for that amount of oil).
Now, when I say table spoons, I mean actual table spoons (such as the one you eat soup with). I was afraid that my plastic mixing spoons would break in the hardness of the coconut oil. This always makes about 4 oz. of oil, which lasts me about 2 weeks, and which I use for E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. When I get out of the shower. When I'm styling my hair, when I braid it at night. And my hair just loves it.
What go to mixture do YOU have?
