Hair Serums are available in so many variations and each promising tons of results, costing a fortune. I wanted a simple but effective hair serum that would deal with my frizz, but also doesn’t cut a hole in my budget.
There are times when hair needs extra help and frizz definitely calls for TLC! Frizz or tangles are one thing I am wary about, because I don’t to break my hair while dealing with them. I usually prefer soothing my hair first and then smoothing out the tangles or frizz.
That’s where I wanted a hair serum to come in. I was looking at a hair serum that would work, but also not weight down my hair. While my hair isn’t very oily, it is fairly thinner that I would like it to be. So, I wanted to come up with a recipe that would deal with frizz, but doesn’t make my hair oilier, or look flat. Let’s take a look at the recipe first!
Argan Oil – 1 Tbsp.
Jojoba Oil – 30 Ml
Avocado Oil – 30 Ml
Castor Oil – 1 Tsp.
Hazelnut Oil – 30 Ml
Chamomile Essential Oil – 20 Drops
Cedarwood Essential Oil – 10 Drops
In a dark glass bottle, add all the carrier oils listed in the ingredients – Argan, Avocado, Jojoba, Hazelnut and Castor Oils.
Gently shake and then add the Essential Oils – Cedarwood and Chamomile Essential Oils.
Shake to combine and set aside for two days.
How to Use It?
Apply on dry or wet hair before styling.
Why These Ingredients?
All the ingredients listed above are meant to soothe, moisturize and tame frizzy hair. This serum makes detangling easier and gets rid of frizz, so your hair will look shiny and healthy.
Why 2 Days Waiting Period?
It is not mandatory, though these two days give enough time for the essential oils and carrier oils to combine. I noticed there is a slight difference in results when I wait for two days.
Who can Use This Serum?
Really, anyone can use the serum. This serum suits all hair types, though ideal for those with oily or thin hair. This serum doesn’t weigh hair down and is fairly lighter.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can reduce or skip Castor Oil, if you find this recipe fairly greasier. I recommend Castor Oil for those with hair thinning, hair loss or excessively dry hair and it adds loads of moisture and nourishment to strengthen hair.
You can add Essential Oils of your choice, though I go with soothing oils that don’t irritate or dry hair further. You don’t want to aggravate frizz, so mild and soothing oils like Lavender, would be ideal.
You can swap the Carrier Oils listed in the recipe for the ones that are locally available, or easier to procure that the ones listed here.
