I have been trying to find natural solutions for hair care that are simple to make, not too expensive, and work with my hair type. I have tried a few recipes that have really dried out my hair and not worked well for me.
Recently, a friend of mind turned me onto this recipe from wellnessmama.com. I made a double batch with lavender oil and olive oil. It lasted for 3 weeks (I have thick long hair) and really left my hair moisturized and smelling great.
She reminds you to shake before each use (just put it in an old shampoo bottle). It can stay in the shower for use for up to one month.
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/3 cup castile soap
- 1/2 of a teaspoon Vitamin E oil (optional)
- 20 drops of Essential Oils of choice (like this lavendar oil)
- For dry hair: add 1/2 tsp olive or almond oil (optional)
