Shealoe Recipe (Shea Butter + Aloe Vera Gel )


By Tamara of Natural Hair Rules

This is Natural Hair Rules recipe for Shealoe or Whipped Shea Butter with Aloe Vera Gel. I know there are many recipes available online but this is probably the most simple with only three ingredients. Shea Butter alone is a great all natural moisturizer. Combined with aloe vera gel it is softer and easier to work with. It can serve as a creamy moisturizer and/or styling product. Feel free to improvise and add your favorite essential oils. I suggest that your use a glass mixing bowl for easier clean up. I use my Shealoe from head to toe, literally.

Ok here we go.

You’ll need:

1/2 cup of unrefined white or yellow shea butter

1/4 cup of aloe vera gel

2 tablespoons of coconut oil and/or olive oil depending on your preference.

Begin by scooping room temperature shea butter in a bowl.  Whip with a hand mixer on low speed until  fluffy in consistency.  Once it’s soft add the aloe vera gel and coconut oil.   Mix again with hand mixer on low speed. Spoon into a container with a lid. Store in a cool dry place.  You can also subsitute the coconut oil for any other oil you prefer.

Shealoe can be used as a hair moisturizer/ styling product and an after shower body cream.  Apply Shealoe to wet or dry clean hair or skin. For hair after application style as desired.
