Oyekade: what is ratio of water and shea butter? i want to try this
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @TheBaroness65 Use a pomade...KCC and Oyin sells them.
Mattie Smith: When buying products for Natural Hair the first ingredient should always be
distilled water, oils,etc. I make mine own but I don't call it a whip shea
butter but a Hair Moisturizing Lotion in a bottle to make it easy to apply
to the hair.
Secret13792: Hey, i'm so dumb I accidentally put tap water into my mix, I forgot that I
was supposed to use bottle water. Do you think it is ruined? Should I just
chuck it out? By the way, I use mine for my body.
RyNea Soul: Awesome info
guitarawks09: where can i buy some of your shea butter w. distilled watter?
Keisha Charmaine: hmm.. makes sense. thanks for this video
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @soulofgrace43 Hey Soul! Thanks so much for your kind words. I use a
coconut emulsifier and optiphen as the preservative...I'll email you the
websites on where to purchase.
Gladys Foster: If everyone did not share their methods, we'll still all be in the dark
age. Thumb up for people that share, the ones that don't stagnate!!!!
cpitam: Thank you for the video. Where do you buy your emulsifying wax?
til0tifii: Hi...why don't u sell the infusuum23 too. and how much is international
shipping? I am in KSA. Thanks. Love ur vids !!!!
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @Abeba82 sorry for the delay in getting back to you...I sent you an email.
apinkbeauty: This is probably one of the most informative videos Ive ever watched on
Youtube. (For me...) I have been trying to figure out why shea butter never
really worked on my hair dry.... I made whips and it only seemed to
moisturize my hair after I washed it. I talked to my sister about it and I
told her that the shea didnt seem to absorb in my hair. I mean seriously,
this has been a major mystery for like a year.... So thanks. I may need to
order yours! LOL
naturallady1: thanks for this information, I always wonder why hair still always felt dry
after applying. Maybe I will try adding a little water to mine.
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @kekedj214 Hi! It can be distilled, deionized, or bottle water. I would not
use tap water in my hair products.
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @Secret13792 Hi! I don't think it's ruined. Just use distilled water next
enewt81: so the one i just got (which was chunky by the way ;) did not have water
added to it right?
umkish: Does it not spoil? What preservatives do you use? I've thought about doing
this, but worried about mold. A small batch of my whipped shea did mold
before, but it wasn't exposed to water, just kept in a small container in
an unused purse for a few months. Kind of random, but it showed me that
shea can mold. I've heard of adding conditioners to shea, possibly
water-based ones but not water, so I'm very curious about your experience.
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @darkandugly Hi Dark! They are $5 and $10...contact me at the email listed
in the Description box of this video. :0)
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @dkblck1958 Hi it really depens on how much you are mixing...you can add 4
tablespoons to an 8oz...just make sure you add and emulsifier (will help
the oil and water mix) and preservative so you won't have a mold situation
on your hands.
Abeba82: @FreeWorshipFreeWors No problem....Thank you very much...Should I eye ball
the optiphen in the shea butter mix because I plan on making an 8 oz
mizchei1: Your hair looks amazing!!! How can I get your shea butter mix? Do you ship
naturaldiva71: How much water do you add
FreeWorshipFreeWors: Gladys if this was not a business for me I would gladly share my formula. I
did my research and through much trail, error and expense, I came up with a
wonderful formula. McDonald does not share its Big Mac sauce with Burger
King and other fast food restaurants. KFC does not share the secrets spices
that it puts on its chicken with Popeye's Fried Chicken. In regard to
business, there is a balance that must be respected when it comes to
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @Keysha72 Great! You will have to add.an emulsifier (will help the oil and
water mix) and a preservative (optiphen) so you won't have a mold situation
on your hands.
SheSingsLovely: approximately how much water did u add to your mixture?
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @cpitam Hi! I don't share my mixing method as this is the formula for my
business. If you do some online research I'm sure you'll find the answers
to your questions. Thanks for watching my videos.
darkandugly: Hiiii!!!!! thank you for making videos for natural hair,because WE NEED IT.
YOUR AMAZING!!!! I was wondering how much your shea butter whips are????
blackbeautie09: It will have a short shelf life without a preservative. It lasts longer if
you keep it in the refrigerator though. It will also separate if you don't
add some type of emulsifier to bind the oil and water.
gkdiva6: THis is good information...
cjcaress69: It's important in videos like this, to be very clear that it's more than
just water that's added. Or else people who don't know any better will try
it and end up with a mold situation on their hands. Glad that you put in
the caption afterward, but I am sure that there are people who saw the vid
before the update and r just going to be adding in water to their shea,
clueless about the consequences.
blessed1203: U do need to add a preservative when adding water or it will mold after
sometime. There are natural preservatives that will help with shelf life;
however, it still should be used within an 6 month time frame with that
natural preservative. For longer self life you would have to use a paraben
preservative. So research is the key & I reading books about this topic
will help you also.
NaturallySophisticated: I wonder if adding glycerine and/ or aloe vera juice to the shae butter
will work better? or mixing all three. i am going to try that
DeeJ085: I did not know that without the water, shea butter wasn't really
moisturizing. I just made my first batch of whipped shea butter yesterday
and applied it to my hair, so now that I know it needs water, i will remix
it up. Thanks:)
LeAndrea Grant: Thanks for the info, I just realized the same thing this week end,my hair
dont like shea butter on dry hair, it will have to be dripping wet right
out the shower, then it will be so soft, never thought to add water.
kareemtiheed: I just love your videos! Keep up the great work!
prettybrowneyescutie: thanks for posting
Shelley Bee: love it!! you look gorgeous
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @ellexoelle Hi see below...or review the information in the "Description"
box of this video. ;0)
jrockpharmd: Thx for sharing your knowledge with us. I've just started making my own
Shea butter whips also. I was wondering what should I use as an emulsifier
and about how much distilled h2o to add to an 8oz Shea butter whip? I'll
stay tuned in.
antionette35: Thank you for the information!!!
cjcaress69: you better watch out for mold. bacteria and fungi love water. Without a
preservative you're in for trouble.
cpitam: Does anyone know where to buy coconut emulsifier and optiphen
mommyanme: This is so true. I also use my shea butter on my whole body, but I do not
towel off first. I am still wet and the shea kida acts as my "towel", plus
I moisturize my hands a lot and if I try to use just shea butter, I go
crazy, I have to add a few drops of water and smooth it on otherwise I feel
kylahsmom1: well, I must reorder soon..I am getting to the end of my original shea
butter purchase..can not wait to try the new one! I kiked that honeyhemp
conditioner so much, I had to place an order from Oyin..love that
stuff!!Stay Blessed - Blondell
FreeWorshipFreeWors: @drroberson4 Hi yes I have to add a emulsifier and a natural preservative.
The emulsifier helps the water mix with the oil and the preservative
prevents mold from the water.
TheBaroness65: The biggest problem for me are my edges they always seem dry. Any
mjeol: For a preservative, has anyone ever tried potassium sorbate? A couple of
folk who make their own stuff have recommended it to me. I'm all nervous
about preservatives but I want to keep my stuff for longer than a few days.
(I don't sell anything, just wanting to save some money and improve the
quality of my hair/skin). "Vitamin E T-50" was also recommended
jymmidean22: Distilled or deionized water leaches ions from from everything. That is why
water is the universal solvent.
Kay Dee: First of all that top is beautiful on you!! I was wondering why distilled
water as opposed to regular water?
