DIYs are usually slightly hassling as you have to do all the work, but when the results of those very DIY projects are so amazing you don’t mind putting in that tiny bit of effort. Since the weather is turning chilly, shea butter almost always comes to the rescue when your skin feels dry. It can be a sure-shot solution to your dry skin and hair concerns without you having to go through a troublesome trial and error period. Here are a few shea butter DIY products that you will keep by your side throughout the cold season.

Shea butter makes for a good anti-ageing skincare ingredient. And while using shea butter as a full face moisturiser won’t work for every skin type, this ultra-moisturising and healing eye cream definitely will.

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp rosehip seed oil

  4. Add the mixture to your glass container and cool it in the fridge.
  5. Apply it to the skin around your eyes after cleansing.

Moisture Restoring Hair Conditioner

For dry and damaged hair that could be even chemically treated, a good dose of moisturising products is highly essential to bring back your natural hair lustre.

  • 1 cup shea butter
  • 5 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp jojoba oil 
  • 2 tbsp rosehip oil

  3. Once the mixture has cooled down a bit, stir in the olive oil and essential oils.
  4. Transfer this mixture to a container and let it solidify.
  5. Apply this conditioner to damp hair post shampoo and rinse it off after two minutes. You can also use this as a pre-shampoo hair masque for 30 minutes before a hair wash.
