The Benefits and Recipe of Shea Butter Hair Mask
This Shea butter mask, which also includes some other ingredients, is very helpful for dehydrated hair.
There are coconut and argan oil in it as well, but if you want to avoid them, you can use olive oil (if you have got dry frizzy hair), or grapeseed oil, rose hip seed oil, and sweet almond oil for thinner hair.
Homemade Shea Butter Hair Mask Recipe
Put 1 tablespoon of raw Shea butter in a heat safe container, and place the container in a pan filled with a few inches of water.
Place the pan on heat to let Shea butter become soft, but not melted.
Remove the pan from heat, and add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of argan oil, and 1 teaspoon of raw honey.
You can optionally add 5 to 10 drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oil.
Mix everything with a clean spatula, and massage it onto your scalp and strands with clean fingers.
To make the mask creamier and easier to apply, use a hand mixer or blender to whip it up.
Cover your hair with a shower cap. Wash off thoroughly after 1 hour with a sulfate-free shampoo and enough water.
