How to make hair butter

Are you tired of commercial hair products laden with chemicals and artificial additives? Why not try making your own all-natural hair butter at home? Not only is it a fun and creative project, but it also allows you to tailor the ingredients to your hair’s unique needs.


  • Shea Butter: The base of most hair butters, shea butter is rich in vitamins and provides deep moisture for your hair.
  • Coconut Oil: Known for its nourishing properties, coconut oil adds shine and promotes hair health.
  • Jojoba Oil: Mimicking the natural oils produced by the scalp, jojoba oil helps balance moisture and strengthen hair.
  • Argan Oil: Packed with antioxidants, argan oil provides a luxurious feel and helps tame frizz.
  • Essential Oils: Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, or tea tree for fragrance and additional benefits.


  1. Measure Ingredients: Depending on your hair length and thickness, measure out appropriate quantities of shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil.
  2. Melt Shea Butter: Use a double boiler or microwave to melt the shea butter until it becomes a liquid.
  3. Combine Oils: Mix the melted shea butter with coconut, jojoba, and argan oils. Stir until well combined.
  4. Cool and Add Essential Oils: Allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding a few drops of your chosen essential oils. Stir again to evenly distribute.
  5. Whip the Mixture: Using a hand mixer or a whisk, whip the mixture until it achieves a creamy, fluffy texture.
  6. Transfer to a Container: Once whipped to perfection, transfer your homemade hair butter into a clean, airtight container.


Apply a small amount of your DIY hair butter to damp or dry hair, focusing on the ends. Style as usual, and revel in the natural, healthy glow of your nourished locks.

By making your own hair butter, you not only eliminate exposure to potentially harmful chemicals but also take control of the ingredients that contribute to the overall health and beauty of your hair. Experiment with different oils and scents until you find the perfect blend for your unique hair needs. Enjoy the process of crafting a personalized hair care solution right in the comfort of your home!
