Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess and the second post in my series entitled "Natural Curls".
I just had a long day going through the rigmarole involved with washing my naturally curly hair and then when it came time to moisturize - guess what? I didn't have any moisturizer! How is that even possible for someone who always buys two of everything for just this kind of scenario? What was I to do? My hair was already taking on a life of its own and hair panic was starting to set in.
Then one of my many light bulbs went off...why not just make your own? Well, with unruly hair and no time to be melting oils and shea butter etc, I decided to go back to basics and use one of my very first tried and tested recipes. Thankfully, I always have a good supply of Shea Butter/Coconut Oil on hand. Using those two ingredients as a base, I added a hint of this and a dash of that and in about thirty minutes, I had the fluffiest, creamiest hair soufflé that even rivals the store brand I usually use! Even I'm impressed with the speed and ease of this concoction! In the future though, I'm going to tweak this recipe somewhat for use on the body [it's a bit too greasy for skin, but is perfect for my hair]. Of course, now that hair calm has been restored, I can share the recipe with you. It's as easy as one, two, three and there's no melting involved! Let me show you how I made it.

***29th April 2015 UPDATE: If there's too much heat in your house, this mixture will not stay whipped [due to coconut oil]. If your mixture turns into a gloppy mess, just refrigerate again then re-whip. Should not damage product in any way. In the future, I'm going to reformulate this recipe and perhaps add some beeswax to keep it in whipped form for longer. Another update will follow soon.***
See you next time!
