You can make your own amazing hair conditioners from a few ingredients found in your pantry, plus a few essential oils you can buy online or in your health food store.
Here’s a basic recipe:
- Pick one: 1 cup organic extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil or jojoba base oil
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 10 drops each of your favorite essential oils: lavender, rosewood, rosemary, clary sage, tea tree, cedarwood, ylang-ylang, palmarosa or geranium are all excellent options.
Put the ingredients in a glass bottle with a top and shake vigorously. Store for 24 hours so the essential oils can synergize or if you are impatient by nature like me, just use it right then.
Massage 2 teaspoons of the product into the scalp and comb another 2 teaspoons through to the ends of hair. Let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing.
