Homemade Hair Cream

Homemade Hair Styling Cream Recipe

Yield 2 ounces



  1. Combine shea butter and coconut oil in a glass measuring cup or half-pint mason jar. Melt in microwave for a few seconds, or use a makeshift double boiler (fill a small saucepan with about 1-2 inches of water and set glass container inside, heating on low just until melted).
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir well to mix. Transfer to a small, shallow tin with a lid (like this).
  3. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight until mixture is cooled and set up. Remove from refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature before using.
  4. Store at room temperature (for a nice, creamy consistency) and use within a month. Refrigerate any amount you can't use within that time.


To Use

A little bit of this styling cream goes a long way, so start with a very small amount when first using it. Dip clean fingers into the cream, rub a small amount into your hands, and apply to hair that is only slightly damp or completely dry. (I have not had good results when using it on wet or very damp hair.)

If the cream causes your hair to look greasy, you're using too much.
