DIY Shea Butter Moisturizer for Type 4B/4C Hair Textures

Hey Curlies, here I am again with a D.I.Y homemade moisturizer for the 4c Girls.

I must admit that I was not a Shea Butter fan at all, the smell was not the best and its kinda greasy to, I had all sort of complaints about this product, but I am converted. over the past months this little mixture has tremendously helped my hair with moisture retention and growth.

Its quick and easy to make and it cost a lot less than buying a moisturizer or a twisting pomade for your hair. With this mixture You will have complete control of what you put into your hair. So I do highly recommend you try this and other Homemade products. 

Oil: Jojoba, Vitamin, Wheat Germ, ,Grape Seed, Castor Oil, Rosemary.

 Castor oil: I got this from a coworker who actually boiled the castor seeds herself and made 100 % raw organic castor oil. smells gross and it tingles on the scalp abit

 Bowl: any size will do

Continue to add other essential oils, in no particular order.
