Today we will take care of your hair. Recipes for the hair are never ending: various oils mixes, honey, creams and even fruits can be used. This one is for your hair’s growth, strength and healthy shine! The components speak for themselves:
Coconut oil gets deep into hair follicles and stimulates hair growth . It also fights against scalp problems like insect bites, lice and dandruff. It makes hair shiny and soft. Finally, it prevents hair breakage and split ends, leading to your hair growing longer.
Avocado oil moisturises dry and damaged hair. It’s lightweight formula easily absorbs into the scalp and hair and has exciting amounts of nutrients such as A,B,D,E, also lots of proteins, folic acid, magnesium, iron, amino acids and much more. It is goo inside and outside. It works perfectly for heat damaged hair, weather from summer sun or hairdryer. It strengthens hair root preventing hair loss, thus your hair is longer and healthier.
Essential Lavander Oil – just a few drops will do miracles for your hair growth. And as a bonus, it smells amazing.
Essential Bay Leaf oil – This one is not commonly known and OMG it is such a must-have! It deserves a separate article which will definitely follow soon. But for today, just remember that it helps itchy scalp, softens and makes your hair silky, and gives you new hair growth which will be visible after only a few uses.
So let’s do this…
2 tbsp of warm Raw Organic Coconut Oil
1-2 tbsp of Avocado Oil
3-5 drops of essential Lavander Oil
10 drops of essential Bay Leaf Oil
*Remember the amounts can vary depending on your hair length and preferences. Do not add too much of essential oils but make sure they are not lost in coconut and avo either.
- Mix the ingredients and apply to your hair from root to the ends. Massage into the scalp for few minutes. Cover with a really warm towel (you may want to put on a plastic cap underneath).
- Leave it overnight or for about an hour. This is up to you but may be no point to do it and then apply for under an hour.
- Wash it off. Be patient and gentle! It may take 2-3 washes with your shampoo but make sure you do not rub your hair impatiently and end up damaging it instead.
- Dry as usual and see the instant result.
You will see your hair is much smoother and silkier. However, please remember that as well as diet and exercise – this needs consistency to achieve hair growth! It will not give you long hair over night, instead, do this at least once a week and you will see how quickly your hair replies.
