Chebe Butter DIY Shea Butter for Hair Growth & Alopecia

Now we’re going to combine the amazing benefits of shea butter for hair with the magical herbal mix taking over the hair growth world right now, Chebe powder! In this video, watch me make a bigger batch of the oil for production, but follow the recipe to get at least 4 oz of oil at the end. 

Chebe originates from Chad and is an herbal mixture made up of tree resin, cherry seeds, lavender and cloves, lavender croton, and stone scent, but mixtures can vary depending on the source.

It's known for its ability to retain hair growth, especially for 4c, curly hair. It does this by improving moisture retention and flexibility. Dry brittle hair breaks, but moist, strong hair stays, and that’s the chebe secret.

fenugreek for hair

Fenugreek is a rich source of protein and  iron, essential nutrients for healthy hair. It also is an antioxidant, slowing aging, and an anti-inflammatory that helps with dandruff, scalp irritation and acne.


FIRST make the oil

10 day Chebe Oil to Hair Butter Recipe

4 Tbsp Raw Coconut oil

3 Tbsp castor oil

4 tsp chebe powder

2 Tbsp Fenugreek dried leaves

2 Tbsp  tsp Blessed Oil CBD  (olive oil)


How to prep fenugreek for infusion

Heat oven to 200 F and bake fenugreek leaves for 10-15 mins until fragrant. This will dry out any moisture, and also activate certain compounds in the leaves similar to de-carbing weed biomass before making a CBD balm. 

Let cool then grind Fenugreek leaves to a powder, doesn't have to be fine bits. 

In a 16oz glass jar, combine fenugreek leaves, chebe powder, castor oil, coconut oil, and olive oil.


After 10 days, drain the oil 3x using fine mesh, then double layer cheesecloth to catch the fine sediment. 

Add + 15-20 drops Frankincense, shake well. 

THEN make the butter 

Whip 1 cup Shea butter (half melted) + 1/4 cup chebe oil. You can change this ratio for more firm chebe butter, but I find that this is potent and melts so beautifully into the scalp. 

Mix thoroughly with immersion blender for 2 mins, then put in fridge til a thin crust has formed ( 10-15mins ) 

Whip again, then put it in the fridge again for 10 mins. 


Whip your hair butter while the bowl sits on a frozen bag of veggies, ice pack, something cold, and this will temper it and thicken as you whip.
