It’s funny that one of the first styles that people try when they go natural seems to be the finger coils. A while back I showed photos of two lovely young ladies rocking their finger coils and they’re back and still showing off their fantastic coils. Over the past few months there are others following the Bristol trend. Long, short, curly, coily, kinky, lovely…
I’ve been making a range of butters over the last 10 months and I think I have found a favourite for my hair and body. I found it in ‘Beauty Oils and Butters’ by Elaine Stavert. It is simply Grapeseed oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E oil and essential oils. It’s light and smells really nice because I add Orange Essential Oil to it and it doesn’t cost loads to make!
What you need:
250ml/1 Cup of Shea Butter
125ml/1 cup of Grapeseed Oil
1/2 tsp of Vitamin E oil
10 drops of Orange Essential Oil
Melt the Shea Butter then add the Grapeseed and other oils. Put in the freezer for about 20 mins then begin to whip it up. Once whipped place in containers. Mine was a little over whipped (house is still a bit cold so hardened more after I’d finished whipping).
This is the first book I read from front to back when I first decided to stay natural. It has something for everyone. They have now started to put some of these invaluable tips onto Youtube so check it out!
