Whipped Shea Aloe Moisturizing Sealant Recipe

Shea aloe sealant ingredients

Although there is already a recipe for a shea butter sealant here, it was definitely due a face lift. Being the kitchen alchemist that I am, I wanted to find a lighter less greasy way to both lighten the shea butter and make it easier to apply while keeping the ingredients as natural as possible.

When you first receive pure shea butter, you will find that it is a yellowish, firm, waxy product with little to no smell of it’s own. You can melt a little by rubbing it between your fingers before using it to seal in moisture to your hair and a lot naturals use it this way. Whipping it however helps to both make it easier to apply and allows you to mix in other lovely ingredients.

Aloe vera juice and honey both have purported benefits to hair so they feel right added to this recipe somehow. Instead of using the juice, I have incorporated aloe vera gel to the recipe to allow the mixture to better emulsify. Without further ado, here’s how to make the make it:

I whip my shea butter with coconut, grapeseed and jojoba oil. I’ve read about the LOC Method (I spritz with water, apply Cantu Shea leave in then my Shea mix) my question is I read with the the LOC method you should apply the oil of your choice then you can seal with Shea. Should I apply a seperate oil then my Shea mix or am ok with the oils being mixed in?

LOC is liquid, oil then cream but some people do it as LCO too where you put the oil as the last layer. You can try it both ways to see what your hair likes better, it’s not a one rule fits all thing 🙂
