Moisturizing Oil “Cocktail”

Hey Family, Just wanted to share with all of you my homemade “moisturizing Oil Cocktail”. I hope you give it a try. It works wonders for my hair. Let me know what you think if you do try it. If you want to do a video response to let me know how it is working for that’s cool 🙂 Here is the “recipe” Equal parts: Shea Butter & Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (3-4 Tablespoons) Equal Parts of the following: (2 teaspoons each) Jojoba Oil Avocado Oil Grapeseed Oil Sweet Almond Oil Castor Oil Optional: 1-2 Tablespoons Vegetable Glycerin (do not add this if you are going to use Kinky Curly products)…trust me, I know LOL 🙂 Optional: 1/2 tsp Vitamin E Oil Optional: Any essential oil for fragrance Optional: 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil This amount should last at least a month. I have had a lot a request about the mixer that I use. Here is the link to it on amazon:

      I got the jojoba oil and coconut oil from whole foods. I got the shea butter from a african-american owned beauty supply store.

      My hair just eats it up! I am still using the bottle that I made in this video. I think these bottles of oil will last me to almost the end of the year. If you try it, let me know how your hair likes it.

      I just finished making your oil cocktail, and it’s really great! It seems that all I need is a little bit on the hair to make it soft and shiny. Do you use it as a daily moisturizer, after washing the hair, etc.?

      I always use it after washing or co-washing. And sometimes I use it mid-week if my hair is a little dry. I always dampen my hair first, either with water or juices and berries from oyin handmade before I apply it. A little goes a long way! I am glad you like it! 🙂

      I get my shea butter from an african-american owned beauty supply store. If you city has an african market, you should be able to find it there or at a local natural hair care salon, if not then you can go to butters n bars recommended by rustic beauty.

      Wonderful video! All of the oils you used are great for hair and skin as you mentioned, and I’ve used all of them except jojoba. I recently started using a mix similar to yours minus the vitamin e, jojoba and glycerin and my hair and skin love it! No commercial product has ever made such an impact and I’ve tried just about everything.

      Glad to know that it is working wonders for you. My hair is loving it and I am still using the same mix that I made in this video. A little goes a long way. I also have never had a commercial product work this well for me either.

      Jojoba oil is a GODSEND. I bought my very first bottle (16 fl oz.) a year ago and it eliminated the really dry, flaky skin I had going on when I began using benzoyl peroxide to combat acne. I still have 1/4 of the bottle left, stuff lasts for a long time.

      On top of helping my skin, I mix it in the palm of my hands before lathering shampoo on my hair in the shower. I’m always complimented on how soft, silky, and healthy my hair looks and feels.

      Anyway, thanks for the video. Favorite’d. 🙂

      Hi. Too much of each of the oils will make the mixer griny. Just one table spoon of that coconut oil is enough.. LOL I know …you love yourself some coconut oil. Me too?

      Why is kinky curly and glycerin not a good mix? Are you referring to the knot today or the custard?
