I purchased the PUR Whipped Hair Gelly (8 oz, $12.50) and the Shea-Amla Whipped Butter Cream (8 oz, $12.50).

The Shea-Amla, I just couldn’t get into the smell, the scent is Frankincense and Myrrh. I found myself not using it :(
Well, it’s been over 6 months and The PurWhipped Hair Gelly is GONE, all used up (BUY IT, U GOTTA TRY IT). But I still had 90% of the Shea-Amla. Shoot, I was NOT about to throw it away, not all that shea butta luvn.
[Enter Kitchen-technician]…I added about 4oz of Aloe Vera Gel, FOTE brand is alcohol free (I found it at Walmart with the lotion and sunscreen stuff). I also added a few drops of spearmint oil. Blend. Blend. Blend it all together. I used my handmixer, it's a good 10 years old.
I used my Shea-Amla-Spear-Aloe for my last set of twists. The Spearmint and Aloe muted the frankicensey smell and I really, REALLY like the consistency and the way it left my hair. Sorry no pic of current twists, but trust me, its shiny, soft and so gosh darn smooooooooooooth! Luvn it!
