Shealoe – Shea Butter + Aloe Vera Gel


Whipped-Shea-Butter-Shealoe copyAs promised my basic recipe for Shealoe or Whipped Shea Butter with Aloe Vera Gel. I know there are many recipes available online but this is probably the most simple with only three ingredients. Shea Butter alone is a great all-natural moisturizer. Combined with aloe vera gel it’s softer and easier to work with. It can serve as a creamy moisturizer and/or styling product. Feel free to improvise and add your favorite essential oils. I suggest that your use a glass mixing bowl for easier clean up. I use my Shealoe from head to toe, literally.

Ok here we go

You’ll need:

1/2 cup of unrefined white or yellow shea butter

1/4 cup of aloe vera gel

2 tablespoons of coconut oil or the oil of your preference.

Begin by scooping room temperature shea butter in a bowl.  Whip with a hand or stand mixer on low speed (speed may vary depending on your mixer. I have a high powered Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, medium to low speed gives a nice fluffy, whipped consistency) until fluffy in consistency.  Once it’s soft add the aloe vera gel and coconut oil.   Mix again with mixer on low speed. Spoon into a container with a lid. Store in a cool dry place.

Shealoe can be used as a hair moisturizer/styling product and an after shower body cream.  Apply Shealoe to wet or dry clean hair or skin. For hair after application style as desired.

  1. I’m looking for and will probably find aloe vera gel soon, but can shea butter be whipped with Eco Styler’s Argan Oil Gel? Just wondering, I also have coconut oil and I’d like some feedback. I think my hair needs a butter stat! lol

    • Um… I wouldn’t recommend whipping your shea butter with eco styler gel, just because I don’t know how the ingredients will get along after everything settles. Its better to be safe than sorry and keep them separated.

  2. This Shea Butter Mix is definitely good for Summer Styling to seal in moisture and hold the style against humidity
