Do You Make Your Own Hair Products?



Hi, Everyone!!

I was checking some sites out earlier today and realized (again) that I should/could be making my own hair products for my natural hair. I came across a few sites that I wanted to share with you all.

  • You can buy Wholesale Shea Butter from this site: http://www.sheabutterweb.com/ (as well as Black soap, if you're interested.)
  • Find several oils (essential oils, vegetable oils, etc.) here: Oils by Nature
  • Do you like mixing your own products but don't have containers to store them in? No problem!! Buy them here, at a LOW PRICE! www.specialtybottle.com
Here's an EASY recipe for making shea butter souffle (great hair moisturizer and/or sealant, much easier to apply then shea butter alone):
2 parts coconut oil, 1/2 part shea butter, and 1/2 part castor oil. I came across this online today and plan to try it in the next week or so.

Feel free to share your own recipes or anything else you'd like to add :) We can all learn from each other!

Here's a wonderful recipe I use for my homemade avocado deep conditioner
1 ripe avocado (chop up)
3 tbsp mayo
1 1/2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp jojoba oil
blend well!! (use a food processor or blender)
Apply to damp hair. Leave on your hair 30 minutes to an hour or longer if desired
rinse
Hope you all enjoy it!!

Hi KeetaRay: I was really big into making hair products at first. I've kinda gotten away from it but I still make some things from my hair. There are a lot of recipes you can find on my blog and if I can share with you, I did a post on online wholesale last year that I'll include the link to.

Also like NaTuRaLbEaUtY81 I make a similar avocado deep conditioner (no measurements though) only I use olive oil in place of coconut and jojoba oil.

I hope you can find some helpful info on my blog. Thanks much!

. . . I meant "for my hair" lol :-)

Oh, and I don't know if you use black soap but I made a shampoo using the bar over the weekend. I absolutely LOVE it and I think I found my staple shampoo. There is also a recipe for this on my blog that I posted last week. I didn't follow that one exactly though.

Hi CallaLily!!
I'm definitely going to check out your blog! I haven't used black soap in awhile but was thinking of trying it again. People seem to have really good results when they use it.

Hey, I just saw your recipe over at agrlcanmac.com. I recently heard of a popular mix on nappturality.com, it's Moe's SheAloe and I must say, I've been luvin it for my daughter. You can see pics here at my lil bloggerookski (thecurlworld.blogspot.com). But basicly u cream the shea and oil first, then add the aloe vera gel. The consistency is soo soo smooth. Hope this helps someone the way it's helped me. I plan to try yours too. Have a great day.
