Do it Yourself

I decided to make a whipped body cream over the weekend and the video below will show you how I made my creation. I was very pelased with the outcome and I want you to experience this product with me so, the winner of my next give away will receive a fresh sample.

I will modify the creation and include slightly different ingredients ( I am having some new ingredients shipped) and that will be the version that you will get to sample. This body butter can also be used on the hair because all of the ingredients are also for the hair, so no harm will be done. However, I believe this moisturizer is best suited for naturals instead of relaxed heads. I used the cocasta oil from hair veda and mixed it with pure aloe oil and unrefiend shea butter.
The end result was a whipped creamy treat which I LOVE. I used it on my hair and it did give me great shine but I can see that over time it may make my hair too greasy.

Why does that look so yummy to me? LOL! Seriously....what a fun project. I love shea butter more for body than hair b/c like you said, I find it to be a tad bit too greasy for me. I still want to try and make this though.

I never had much luck with my mixture. I guess the secret could be aloe Vera or im just that unlucky.

I might try post mix hard shea again adding aloe vera juice.

@Amina..lol thanks The hand mixer if I recall, came from Target.
@B yes too much shea will create a greasy mess, and it does look yummy..lol
@kofeed please let me know how that works out. I was actually using aloe vera oil, the juice I would imagine would give you a different consistency at the end.
@Ren I didnt put it in the fridge and it's doing well just sitting in my bathroom. I think it should last a long time since everything that is in there won't spoil....i would say ummmm long shelf life..lol I will try to be more specific in the future.
BGG thanks
