House of Herbology: Shea Butter & Aloe Vera Moisturiser for Hair & Body

Shea butter and aloe vera are skin and hair nourishing ingredients that can alo be combined together to create a moisturising whip for use as a body cream or hair styling aid to smooth and moisturise tresses.

Like cocoa butter, shea butter makes a perfect mosituriser for fading scars – reducing scar tissue and helping to heal the skin. Since shea butter is rich in Vitamins A & E, it can be applied to hair and split ends to repair damage. Shea butter softens even the toughest, driest hair. A small amount of Shea butter added to the hair can add much needed moisture.

Aloe vera is an all rounder with its skin soothing and cooling properties. It is also known to promote shine and moisture in hair while also preventing hair loss and dandruff.

The below video shows you how to make this natural beauty product. Given that the below recipe does not use a preservative, it is recommended to make a small batch that you can easily make and whenever you require it..
