    This is a great thread. I, myself, am very leary of mixing oils and butters with waters and liquids though. With that said, this weekend I made my first whipped hair butter sealer/styler and a lighter "every day" cream. Both had the same ingrediants, byt the sealer/styler had more butter while the "everyday" cream had more oils. The sealer/styler also doubles (or triples) as a body lotion.

    Whipped Butter recipe

    5 oz of shea butter
    3 oz of shea Nilotica (East African shea butter)
    1 oz of cupuacu butter
    1 oz of murumuru butter
    1 oz of coconut oil
    1 tblspn of Jojoba oil
    1 tblspn of grapeseed oil
    1 tblspn of argan oil
    1 tspn of olive oil
    1 tspn of vitamin e oil
    1 tspn of castor oil
    1 tspn of vegetable glycerin
    (add any essential oil that your hair needs)

    I made sure that my butters were at room temperature. I personally don't like heating my butters in the slightest for fear of them losing nutrients. I whipped it all with a blender. The murumuru butter and cupuacu are hard butters like cocoa butter, so I periodically stopped whipping and mashed. I honestly whipped and mashed off and on for two hours. I made sure to end the process on a whipping phase to ensure fluffiness of my product. This concoction is about 75% butter and 25% oil.

    To make my "everyday" cream, I took 4 oz of coconut oil and stirred it until it melted slightly. I added 2 oz. of my whipped butter, 1 tblsn of olive oil and 1 tspn of all the other oils I listed (not the glycerin or essential oil) and stirred. This is more of an oil base.

    I washed my hair today, placed in a leave-in conditioner, and used my whipped butter for a wash and go. I love it.

    Full disclosure: This recipe was inspired by Naptural85's recipe.

    Neelibhringadi Thailam is mixed with Neelini (Indigo), also known as Bhringadi oil, and other botanicals in pure coconut oil to penetrate deep into your scalp, nourishing the roots of hair and cooling your head, making it one of Ayurveda's treasures.
    Hair loss and premature greying are reduced with this all-in-one therapy. Hair may be revitalized with regular usage. Our Neelbhringadi hair oil has a distinct rich color and strength due to the fact that it is made in tiny amounts for a perfect balance of cow, goat, buffalo, and coconut milks.

    This bringadi oil get absorbed very fast into hair roots to make it strong and healthier.
