DIY Projects

If you live in a colder climate, this DIY Hair & Body Butter can be a lifesaver. The cold, strong winds and/or constant hand washing can wreak havoc on our hair & skin. Try my recipe out. A little goes a long way. As always use what you have or can access. The measurements are approximate. Adjust the formula to your liking.

Check out the video here & please come back and share how your hair and/skin feels after a few weeks!

You'll need: 2 heat proof containers; hot water; spatula; whisk or electric hand mixer; 2 clean & dry containers with lids.

1 cup raw shea butter

1/2 cup almond oil

1/4 cup castor oil
