DIY Beautifying and Moisturizing Hair Butter Recipe

Cocoa butter or Shea butter is a great oil to moisturize the scalp.  My preference is to use unrefined Shea butter. Shea Butter provides moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairing and protecting against weather damage, dryness and brittleness.  It also absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp to rehydrate without clogging pores.

This is a recipe to use for dry scalps that will not heavy on your hair.

4 teaspoons Shea butter

2 tablespoons of jojoba oil
3 teaspoons of salicylic acid or facial toner

5 drops of tea tree oil

    You can use Cocoa Butter if Shea butter is not available.

    Melt the Shea butter and combine the Shea butter, jojoba oil,tea tree oil and salicylic acid.  Allow it to cool. Then apply to the affected spots. Wear a night cap to prevent soiling the bed linen and wash the whole hair in the morning with a mild soap and warm meter. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Repeat this process as long as it is needed.
