What You Need

  • 2/5 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp apricot kernel oil
  • ¼ cup of pure aloe vera gel
  • 9 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 2 drops of chamomile essential oil


  • Melt all shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler.
  • Pop the bowl that contains the melted mixture in the refrigerator for about 10 to 15 minutes till it partly hardens.
    When the time is up, get it out and whip with a hand mixer until creamy. This may take about 3 minutes.
  • Add the apricot kernel oil and whip once again until it’s combine.
  • And finally, insert the pure aloe vera gel then mix first on high speed than low speed until fully contained. As you can see in the picture, I mixed for a short while so I didn’t get a very smooth structure that you will end up with once you whip for at least 5 minutes, scraping down the sides repeatedly.
  • Done! You’ll obtain a soft white mixture that looks foamy!
  • Transfer to some mason jar. Store in a clean, dry place. You can keep it in your bathroom cabinet to use on your hair after a shower but make sure not to have any water in it.

My Tips

  • Used lots of aloe vera gel and a little coconut oil since I didn’t want my hair cream to be greasy and weigh my slightly oily hair down. However, if you’ve dry or frizzy hair, adding less aloe vera gel and a lot more coconut oil will do flowing hair healthy.
  • Please ensure to whip your ingredients very well especially when you add the aloe vera gel, so you get a smooth shea butter hair cream product.
  • For afro-textured hair is usually coarse and matte in appearance, so the daily struggle most people have is retaining moisture on condition that possible to avoid breakage from dry out locks.
  • Usually, afro hair hates being wet, so it will be super important that both my leave-in conditioner and deep conditioner lasts a minimum of a week, so I don’t have to wet your hair in the shower many times.
