What's Your Favorite Butter?

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know that shea butter is my number one love. I use it in my homemade whipped butter mixture to seal water into my hair. I also have a separate body butter mixture to seal moisture into dry areas of my skin.

Lately, I've been hearing a lot about kokum butter and decided to search for more information. It turns out that this particular butter is high in vitamin E, supports skin elasticity, and supposedly reduces/prevents wrinkles. Maybe I'll try it one day?

So, what is your favorite butter? How do you use it?

Here are some products containing kokum. To read more about the benefits of this butter, click here.

I'd have to claim shea butter as my number one butter! Though I have not used it in a while, I love using it along with light oils like jojoba oil or coconut oil. I mix them 1:1 to form a creamy butter consistency and apply it to damp hair. Great for retaining oisture and protective styling!

I haven't tried many other butters but would luv to in future.

P.S. Luv your blog, great info on here!

Shea because it can be mixed with any other butter and pack a moisturizing punch! Next, I would say Avocado, although it's much less moisturizing than shea, but smooth in application.
