As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies, I wanted to give a special thanks to Angie R.  Who responded to my desperate plea for help in making whipped shea butter ( lol).  She provided AuNaturale with two really great recipes in making whipped shea butter.  I made it using recipe 2 which included  using a hand mixer.  And my results were amazing.  Here is what she said:

1. If you are using a blender, it's important to melt the shea butter. Don't microwave, it makes the end result grainy in texture. Boil a pot of water then place the container of shea butter in the water, like a double boiler. Stir until completely melted, add oil(s) and then pour into blender. Blend until it thickens some, pour into your final container to cool and solidifies. The end result will be smooth.

2. You will need a hand mixer. Melt shea butter as above and add your oil. Get a bowl, fill it with ice cubes to make a ice water bath. Sit the melted container of shea butter in the ice water bath. Be careful! Mix the melted shea butter while it's sitting in the ice water. This method will give the shea butter that whipped, frothy texture -- my fav
Thanks again Angie R. ( smiles)
