As someone who likes to make DIYs, when I heard shea aloe butter and how nice it works on the hair and skin I was itching to try it out. I did try it out a few weeks later and filmed the process.
I was pleased with my results so I edited and published the video for you to try too. Before that though, Read below to find out exactly what this butter is, its benefits for you and the directions to making it yourself.
What is shea aloe butter?
It is basically whipped shea butter and aloe vera. Also, you can add oils according to your taste. That makes it a very good moisturizing cream for your hair and skin. It is a lightweight butter that can be used as a skin moisturizer or as a cream in the LOC /LCO method of moisturizing your natural hair.

The butter has two main ingredients which are Shea butter and Aloe Vera. The benefits of Aloe Vera for haircare can be read in my previous post and some benefits of Shea butter are written below;
- Shea butter has sunscreen properties. This means it protects the skin against UV radiation. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe sunburns and similar issues.
- She butter has Vitamin E and A as well as properties that boost collagen. This helps in wound healing and clearing of scars.
- It helps seal in moisture which is why it is used in a lot of LOC routines.
