Create-a-Product ... Twist Gel

We've moved to!

I don't know why, but I have a fascination with mixing and blending my own concoctions. I recently purchased some Aloe Vera Gel because I read a lot about its benefits for hair.
Aloe Vera Gel: Promotes hair growth, very moisturizing, unscented (no irritation)
So I already had some two-strand twist in (done with Karen Body Beautful's - Hair Cream & Organic Coconut Oil) , and I took a few out and twisted them back with Aloe Vera Gel (AVG). Needless to say, but the AVG twists were beautiful !!

This lead me to create a homemade twist mix ! "Soo, what did you put in this mix?" ..I am glad you asked!!

Twist Mix:
  • ~ 2 Scoops of 100% Pure Shea Butter (Melted)
  • ~2 Tablespoons of Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 oz. Aloe Vera Gel
  • ~5 drops of Carrot Oil
  • ~5 drops of Tea Tree Oil
The consistency was not what I hoped for (it was a bit too oily, so I stuck it in the fridge for a few hours and **ta-da** have "Twist Mix"!!


  1. Have you tried whipping it with a mixer? It'll give it a much thicker consistency without having to refrigerate it. :)
    You have to keep the mixer going in it for a while for it to finally get *whipped*, but the finished product is great.
