Homemade Hair Butter Recipe

Many people have come in the store and asked about how to make this hair butter. So I decided to post the recipe. Now, I can’t & won’t take credit for this recipe. I saw it on Naptural85 YouTube channel.

Hair Butter Recipe

  • Unrefined Shea Butter (room temperature)
  • Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (room temperature)

*(Blend the 2 base ingredients together first)

  • 1 tbsp Castor Oil
  • 1 tsp Jojoba Oil
  • 1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

*(Optional Oils)

Apricot Oil                                         Grapeseed Oil


As you can see in the video, you can make the consistency of this recipe based on your hair type (fine or thick). I love this hair butter, & so does my hair! I’ve been using it for almost 2 years now. I like to see how I can use things in multiple ways. I guess it’s the multi-tasker in me that makes me feel like products (at least most of them) should multi-task too. Of course I tested the hair butter, & it passed with flying colors.

I also use it to:

  • Moisturize my lips
  • Fade dark spots/ improve skin tone
  • Moisturize my skin.

You can use it as a body butter too. You can even thin it out to have more of a lotion consistency by adding more oil.

This isn’t a miracle hair or body butter. I attributed its success to the ingredients in it. Let’s take a look at them in more detail.

Unrefined Shea Butter

Shea butter promotes healthy skin and hair. It’s known to help improve skin troubles including dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, burns, stretch marks, wrinkles, blemishes/ dark spots, skin rash such as diaper rash, and much more. It’s also known to help moisturize dry hair and scalp, lock in moisture without clogging pores, protect hair against weather damage, soften hair, and more.

Castor Oil

It’s a thicker oil packed with minerals, Omega 6 and 9, proteins, and vitamins such as vitamin E. It’s known to moisturize and penetrate deep into the hair follicle and root to hydrate hair, improve dandruff, promote hair growth, strengthen and thicken hair, smooth and condition hair. It’s also known to moisturize and penetrate the skin to soften and hydrate the skin, delay the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, help sooth sunburn, and promotes healthy nails.

Jojoba Oil

This golden color oil contains many minerals and vitamins that promote healthy skin and hair: vitamin B complex, copper, vitamin E, selenium, and zinc. It’s commonly used to help protect the hair follicle shaft and root, strengthen hair, moisturize and soften hair and skin, improve dandruff and tangles, help to improve scars and stretch marks, help sooth sunburn, remove makeup, and improve fine lines.

Sweet Almond Oil

It’s known to help improve skin troubles such as psoriasis, cracked lips or heels, eczema, stretch marks, wrinkles, and dark circles. It’s also known to delay the appearance of aging on skin, moisturize skin and hair, help normalize the PH of skin, improve dandruff and tangles, soften skin and hair, promotes less hair breakage, and help remove makeup.

Do you love grapes? Well, you may love the oil from their seeds too. Grapeseed oil is light and commonly used to help tighten and tone skin, moisturize hair and skin, promotes hair growth, improve dandruff and luster, strengthen and condition hair, close pores, and help improve skin troubles including acne, wrinkles, dark circles, and fine lines.

    I have natural hair and have been looking for some type of hair butter or something moisturizing to add to my hair regimen. That video helped me whip up a batch. I love this hair butter already (for my hair & skin)! This is a keeper! Thanks

      A lot of people ask for this recipe when they come in the store. They always say that they love it too. I look for what my hair loves or at least likes a lot. If I can see that it loves or likes it, then it’s a winner in my book.
