New Products

So about two weeks ago before I went to L.A. for a Black Student Union State Conference (which was so much fun), my mom took me to the Vitamin Shoppe (why do they purposely spell it wrong?). Anyway, I purchased raw shea butter, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, and jojoba oil.

I put the oils in spray bottle with water and ic Fantasia Aloe Vera Gel. It has worked okay so far, nothing really special from what I can see, especiall compared to the wonders vegetable glycerin worked. That's what I rally need to make my hair soft. I've only been using it for about two weeks now, so we'll see.
I've only used the raw shea butter once since purchasing it. It is really hard and solid so I melted it, mixed it with the oils and rubbed it in my hair. I actually want to try to whip it, but dont think my mom will let me use her electric mixer. Maybe. I don't know. I can't really comment on its effectiveness until I get to use more. Any suggestions?

  1. You will like the whipped shea butter, I make it all the time, just add your favorite oils and mix with the blender. I use it especially at night before I go to bed and put on my satin cap. I do that when I know I am not going to cowash in the morning.
