I adore YouTuber Roots4U45, she is like the Black Paula Dean of natural hair and body products. I love watching her vids, they are informational and inspirational. Here is a simple hair and body cream that is shea butter free for those of you who cannot use or do not like shea butter. Incredibly simple. Click the link to watch her video.
Coconut Hair & Body Cream
- 1 part coconut oil
- 4 parts vegetable shortening
With items at room temperature, scoop into mixing bowl. Stir with a spoon until well blended. Store mixture in a airtight container at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
Now I know some of you are thinking vegetable shortening…you mean Crisco? Yes m’am. I know the use of Crisco in a hair or body product may seem cray, but seriously it is just mix of soybean oil, palm oil and preservatives. Besides if it is good enough to eat it is good enough to put on your skin.
