Whipped Mango and Shea Butter Recipe for Dry Hair

You need:

  • 150 gr of mango butter
  • 2 tablespoon of shea butter
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
  • 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil
  • 1 tablespoon castor oil

You can use any oils you desire. There is no wrong or right. Break both butters into small pieces and place them in a bowl. I use a fork to do that. Boil a pot of water and place your bowl with the mango and shea butter inside the pot to create a double boiler.

Melt the butters but don’t let it boil. Use a hand mixer and whip the mango and shea butter until it is fluffy. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly with the hand mixer until it gets a creamy consistency. Put your whipped mango and shea butter mixture into a container and volià. You won’t smell the mango as the butter has been extracted from the kernels of the mango.
