Is your hair crazy, or are your ends dry and frizzy? Try this natural and nourishing recipe to keep your hair healthy and nourished.
When your hair is long and not manageable, it is quite difficult to style, or flaunt it – dry, frizzy or unruly hair isn’t what you’re going for! After all, we love our locks when they’re shiny, healthy and bouncy. Isn’t it? So, when I saw dry and frizzy hair, newly growing out ends standing out in different directions, I wanted to tame my hair!
What better way than use a nourishing, moisturizing and healing hair balm for that? Besides, using oil or the like leaves hair limp or greasy and that’s not what I wanted. So, here is what I did.
Shea Butter – ½ Oz
Jojoba Oil – 20 Ml
Argan Oil – 1 Tsp.
Beeswax – 1 Tsp.
Vitamin E Oil – 1 Tsp.
Lavender Essential Oil – a few drops
Hazelnut Oil – 1 Tbsp.
In your double boiler, melt together Shea Butter and Beeswax.
When it begins to melt, add in all other oils except Lavender Essential Oil.
When the mixture melts fully, stir with a spatula and remove from heat.
Let it cool down for a few minutes.
Stir in the essential oil and transfer to a sterilized jar.
Tips for the Recipe
These measurements / ratio worked fine for me. But go with what works for you best – when you apply the balm it shouldn’t weigh down your hair or make it oily. It should get absorbed right away and make your hair nourished and moisturized – healthy and shiny hair.
You can add in other ingredients – other oils that you use for your hair care, or oils you like to add, etc.
Sweet Almond Oil, Walnut Oil or even Coconut Oil can be good additions. Depending on your hair type, Castor Oil is good too.
You can freeze or chill the recipe after transferring to the jars – this prevents the mixture from turning grainy while chilling.
How to Use the Balm?
Take a small dollop with a spatula and rub the balm on your fingers to warm it up. Now, apply it to your hair ends or wherever you need a little helping. Use a brush to spread the balm and when almost absorbed, style as usual.
Since we don’t add water-based ingredients, the shelf life is fairly long – also go based on the shelf life of the ingredients.
However, prepare smaller batches every 2 – 3 months to keep your batch fresh at all times.
Feel free to tweak the recipe to suit your preference, style and requirements. I always shake up the recipe every now and then, try different essential oils, etc. It is refreshing and interesting 😉
