For the new year I started a winter regimen and I needed to update my Whipped Shea Butter Mix.
In the post entitled “My Whipped Shea Butter” I showed which ingredients I used and how I achieved my mix. I had used a Coconut oil that I really wanted to try, Dabur Vatika Coconut oil. I noticed the smell immediately and the smell does not seem to fade. I love the smell at first but I find that it lingers a little too long and I am not yet accustomed to it. Needless to say, my previous Whipped Shea mix had the strong smell of the Vatika oil and it lingered…for days. I now use it as a hot oil treatment from time to time. NEVA throw out a mix that may not suite you daily….it can be used as a pre-poo/hot oil treatment occasionally!
Below I’ve added the pics of the ingredients in my New Whipped Shea mix which I use approximately every second day.
After about 10 minutes in the fridge,
The mix was smoother this time since I used a little more oil than the last mix I whipped up. Although it hardened in the fridge…at room temperature it has a light, smooth and easy to use consistency. Not runny…but melts easily with body heat.
