Ingredients:

  • 4oz unrefined shea butter
  • 5 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of pomegrante seed oil
  • 10 drops of red raspberry seed oil

Directions: Bring 3 cups of water to boil. Set aside. Seal the shea butter in a small bowl and place on top of the water for 3 minutes. DO NOT DIRECTLY HEAT THE BUTTER or the butter will become granulated. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed, with a hand mixer for 3-5 minutes or until the butter starts to form a whipped texture. For easy use, scoop your Shea Butter and Raspberry Repair Mask into a Ziploc bag, and cut the tip to dispense. Shampoo as usual, rinse well. Apply.
