Love is in the Hair (Second Life Hair Butter plus the recipe!)

What hair type is Second Life Hair Butter for?

I recently spoke with a woman named Joyce who remembered meeting my mother-in-law several years ago. After reminiscing about my mother-in-law’s warm and bubbly personality, Joyce said, “… and she had the most amazing hair I’ve ever seen!” 

I totally agreed with her (on all accounts!) but knew that my mother-in-law would say her hair is what has caused her such angst. She was humble enough to let me share her "done nothin' with it" hair photo with you (above). 

The Problem with Aging Hair

She used to complain that it completely lacks natural oils, which makes it difficult to manage. As she's aged, it's become even more difficult to manage.

Not sure if I'd create an enemy or become an even better daughter-in-law that she claims I am, I gave her a Second Life Hair Butter a few years ago. She loved it and says it tames her wild (but beautiful!) locks. Whew! 

I know hair can change with age. At times, we need to change with it. 
We might need more natural butters and oils if our hair has become more coarse over time. Here's my mother-in-law's hair:

Second Life Hair Butter Before and After with greying hair


A few of my DIY customers have asked me to share the hair butter recipe. 
Here is it: 

  • 1 oz beeswax 
  • 3 oz shea butter 
  • 2.75 oz coconut oil 

Melt the ingredients in a double boiler. Just before pouring, add ¼ tsp essential oil (optional), stir, and pour into a jar. Hair butter is ready in a few hours. In warmer weather, add .5 oz beeswax. Rub a small amount in hands and apply to wet or dry hair. Style as usual.  Don't use too much!
