The first Natural Hair Butter I sold

Happy new year to you all. How did the first day of the year come so far, hope cool? I pray that this year will offer new and fresh things for to you and in your hair journey.

Late last year, I made my first natural hair butter for sale, I had already made one around November, but I got the measurements wrong and it did not end up being as thick as I desired it. So in December, I got a cheap contract to make the butter for my friend’s daughter who has natural hair. So using screwy hair’s measurement, with a little improvisation here and there, I came up with an amazing hair butter.

Measurement taken down

In case you don’t have a standard measuring cup, just like me, just know that 16 table spoons make 1 cup, so you can just multiply as required. Here, I therefore dad to use 40 table spoons of shea butter and and 8 table spoons of olive oil. Yeah, I know it was a lot of work, but considering the fact that I was selling oit, I couldn’t afford to make mistakes

Also, I threw in a little bit of African Pride’s Olive Miracle. This is because of its great fragrance, as I did not add fragrance to the original mix. Also, it has a lot of useful ingredients for natural hair. I used only very little, but I don’t think I will do this on the regular. This is what the final product looked like.

I will continue making and selling natural hair butter, but it will be strictly based on orders, as I have a lot of things on my plate. I will most probably do it regularly later but that plan is still in the wraps.

I am currently on kinky braids as a protective style in this dry season. I will let you know my hair care regime and how it went, as I don’t desire to deal with breakage and have dry hair.

Catch you later
