Below is a recipe for how to make your own Ayurvedic hair butter which contains anti-bacterial properties, and all the necessary vitamins and properties that promote the growth of long, thick, and healthy hair. This hair butter can be used on all hair types, including 4C.
You will need:
1 cup of raw and unrefined shea butter
½ cup of Fenugreek powder.

½ cup of Moringa powder
½ cup of Amla powder
15ml Coconut oil

Add all your ingredients to the pot.
Carefully stir the mix until it melts completely.
Once completely melted, take off the heat and let it sit until it is cooled. Once cool, pop into the freezer until it is completely set.
Once it is set, whip the mixture until it is a smooth buttery texture.
Transfer to a clean container with a lid to store.
