So I, of course, asked the internets. The internets always knows. There was a googleplex of various recipes including things I could find in my kitchen. I could have used (seemingly) any combination of mayonnaise, avocado, honey, eggs, beer, and oils of all sorts. While all that sounds lovely, and I'm sure they would work, I did not go with any of the recipes I found. I seriously considered the honey and oil formulations. But call me
Here's what I did. I have argan (just organic, no fancy name-brand with all sorts of additives and chemicals) and jojoba oils. I know they are both amazingly moisturizing and nourishing. I pored equal ratios of the two oils in my sweet little hand and added a few drops each of tea tree, lavender, and eucalyptus essential oils. I warmed the oils in my hands and massaged the mixture into my hair, ends to roots. (I have extremely long and incredibly thick hair, so I used two handfuls to coat my hair) I then spritzed a hair towel wrap with water and microwaved it in 30 second increments until it was toasty warm. The towel stayed on all night, locking in all that lovely heat and moisturizing ability. In the morning, I shampooed and conditioned as normal.
Sorry for the lack of pictures of the actual process or results. Just trust me that it was awesome. And I don't want bathroom-mirror-self-pics all over the interwebz. No one needs that in their life.
I'm joining with Frugally Sustainable, Creating Naturally, and Adorned From Above again this week. Check out all the other great ideas on each of these, and feel free to give my post some love!
