DIY WHIPPED BODY and HAIR BUTTER | BENEFITS

via radianthealthonline.com
If you have been wanting to make your own body and hair butter, then you are in the right place. Body and hair butters are so simple to make and can include a number of oils and butters to suit your hair and body needs
. Shea butter is the most common butter used because it is relatively cheap compared to other butters out there. Other alternatives include mango butter, avocado butter, cocoa butter, etc..
Here is a very simple recipe:
- Shea butter
- Grape seed oil
- Avocado oil
- Tea tree and lavender oil.
- Hand mixer
- Glass bowl
-Measuring spoon
-Zip-lock bag
-Plastic spoon/scoop
-Storage container
Process:
I place my shea butter and oils in my glass bowl, then I added 5 drops of my essential oil and whipped to perfection. I added a little more grapeseed oil and avocado oil to help thin out the consistency of my butter and increase fluffiness.
After I was done whipping, I got a zip-lock bag, scooped my whipped butter into the bag and used it as a piping bag by creating a hole on one pointed end of the bag and used it to transfer the butter from the bag into my storage container. Voila!
The video tutorial below shows the entire mixing process.

Benefits of each of the ingredients
Shea butter - shea butter is rich in fats and is known for its emollient properties which makes a good moisturizing agent for both hair and skin. It acts as a sealant for moisture for both hair and skin.
Grapeseed oil - This oil is very rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin E and moisturizes the skin and hair without giving a greasy feel (because it is a light oil). I know because I have used this as a standalone oil. It is non comedogenic and so can be used on acne prone skin.
Avocado oil - Unlike grapeseed oil, avocado is a thicker oil that also has great benefits for both hair and skin. It is packed with antioxidants, fatty acids and so much more that help the hair appear more lustrous and makes your skin look more supple.
Tea tree and lavender oil - Tea tree oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It helps combat acne and also treat dry and itchy scalp. Lavender oil on the other hand helps promote hair growth and is great for acne.
Have you made a whipped shea mix before and how did it go or do you intend to?
