Two posts back to back? What? I’m just as shocked as you are. However, I just had to share my first time experience, making Naptural85’s Thick and Fluffy Pomade-Type Moisturizing Creme.
-Unrefined Shea Butter at Room Temperature
-About 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
-About 1 tsp Olive Oil
-About 1 tsp Castor Oil
-About 1 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
-About 1/2 tsp Vitamin E
I modified the recipe by adding 1/2 TSP of vegetable glycerin and about 4-6 drops of lavender to add a nice scent.
I bought the Africa Shea Butter a week or two ago, from a beauty supply store near me. Instead of storing it in a cool place, I left it out in the open, giving it time to soften.
I have a Ninja Blender, so I knew my baby could handle the job.
It blended greatly. Nice and fluffy. After I poured/scraped it out and looked at my blender, I finally remembered how much work it takes to clean my blender very well. I need a hand mixer & mixing bowl, for next time.
I attempted to pour it back in the original container and soon realized it wasn’t going to fit.
Good thing, I had two old creme containers that I saved for just this instance. I used an old Shea Moisture container.
Voila! I’m going to try it first as a twist creme and then let you know the results. After that I experiment, I will use it as my moisturizer, before applying hair gel/custard for a wash-style-wait-then go. No such thing as a wash and go, for me at least. I applied the little bits I had left over, on the twists I currently have in. Didn’t want to waste it and I get to try it out a little. Tomorrow, I had planned to take my twists down for a twist out anyway.
Well that’s all for tonight. I did get around to trying the Cherry Lola Treatment and the Egg, Mayo, Honey, & Olive Oil Deep Treatment, I mentioned in a previous post. I did the Cherry Lola once so far, and I’ve done the deep treatment every time I washed or cowashed my hair. I’ll write a post soon about my experience with both. Until next time, good night & thanks for reading!
