How to make Faith Amour Loc Butter

Extra hold
1 part almond oil
1 part beeswax
1 part unrefined shea butter
2 to 3 drops rosemary essential oil
2 to 3 drops peppermint essential oil

Melt beeswax in a double boiler. Add the butter when the wax is melted. As soon as butter is melted, add the almond oil. Continue to heat the mixture, on low heat, until all is thoroughly melted. Remove from heat. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before stirring in the essential oils or fragrance oil. Pour the mixture into a container (preferably dark if you are using essential oils).
You can substitute any hair-nourishing oil, such as amla or argan, and any hard butters, such as cupuacu or mango. This loc butter/pomade provides a bit more hold for twists or locs, yet will wash out of the hair. A little bit goes a LONG way!

Regular hold
2 Tbsp shea butter
2 Tbsp mango butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp lanolin
1 tsp sweet almond oil
1 tsp jojoba
1 tsp avocado oil
10 drops-ylang-ylang
1/8 tsp lavender oil
