I recently had a giveaway for the Croatian portion of my audience, and many girls told me they wanted me to talk about hair care more. Well, my hair has never been worse, so I’m not really the one to talk about hair care. However, there is one thing I do that I know for sure is good. So I am going to share it with you. I am going to tell you how to make it, what are the benefits and what else you could add to the mixture. So, sit tight, and let’s get right into the post!
This is going to be a recipe for a home-made hair mask, made almost entirely of different oils. So, let’s get into the recipe.
The base of my mixture is Coconut oil.
- Coconut oil stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles.
- Coconut oil promotes the scalp health fighting against such problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff.
- Coconut oil moisturizes dry hair.
- Coconut oil adds luster, shine and softness to the hair.
- Coconut oil prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length.
- Coconut oil slows down hair loss.
I use about two teaspoons of coconut oil as my base. I melt it over warm water (not boiling, so it doesn’t lose its properties) and then add other ingredients.
The coconut should be extra virgin, cold pressed.
If your hair is on the darker side, walnut oil could really help with the shine of your hair. It also regenerates your hair and your scalp, protects your hair from breaking, strengthens the roots of your hair, gives shine and volume to your hair.
I have an Olival one, which is a Croatian company, and it is also enriched with vitamins A and E. I add about 3 pumps to my coconut oil.
Burdock oil is great if your hair is dry and tends to fall out. It effectively fights hair loss, as well as dry dandruff.
The one I have is also by Olival, it is also enriched with Vitamins A and E, and I also used about 3 pumps.
Castor oil is one of the most well known ingredients that helps with hair growth. Since my hair has been falling out like crazy lately, I am using this to help me grow my hair. It also prevents scalp infections, and helps with conditioning my hair.
I bought mine at a pharmacy, and it wasn’t expensive at all. I use about a tablespoon. Sorry my bottle is a bit messy. It leaked a bit 😀
Jojoba oil is great for both your hair and skin. In terms of your hair, it helps with frizzy hair, it conditions your hair, it helps fight dandruff, and it helps with sensitive scalp.
I have a jojoba oil by Yves Rocher, that is also enriched with Babassu oil and macadamia oil. This product repairs and regenerates hair, and 10 minutes is enough for this oil to work. I add about half to 3/4 of a teaspoon to my mixture.
Besides the oils, I also used nettle tincture. Nettle is amazing for your hair, especially for dealing with hair loss. I usually drink about 15 drops 3 times a day, but you can also apply it to the scalp.
I add about 10 drops to my mixture. I make my own nettle tincture, so if you want to know about that recipe, too, let me know!
This is the mixture I use on my hair before washing it. I apply it to both my scalp, and on the whole length of my hair. I leave it on for as long as I possibly can. At least for two hours.
Some other oils you can use
Some other oils you can use in your hair mixture are macadamia oil, which is amazing for conditioning and regenerating your hair.
Lavender oil helps with itchiness of the scalp.
Almond oil helps with hair volume and makes your hair stronger.
Olive oil helps with hydration of very dry hair.
St John’s wort or Hypericum perforatum oil helps with sensitive and irritated scalp.
And that’s it for this post! Do you use oils for your hair? What oils do you use? Will you try this recipe?
