Shea Butter Conditioner Recipes

Shea Butter comes from the nut of the African shea tree and has been used for years to soften and retain moisture in hair. Shea butter is also a nutrient powerhouse for the hair. It contains vitamins A, E and F and has healing properties that pertain to the scalp.

One thing to remember with all the recipes below is to always use shea butter on damp hair, and it is almost always used as a leave in conditioner, although it can be used as a pre-conditioner before shampooing.

    This might be useful, if half your instructions weren’t missing! I’d be very interested in making the whipped conditioner if you want to repost instructions!

    found the diy shea butter conditioner recipe super greasy, even on my dry hair… isn’t a daily use product, but more like an oil treatment… any suggestions about what to add to make it less greasy, so it can be used regularly? (more shea butter??) thanks 🙂
