DIY Hair Oils For Curl Issues
Breakage and sluggish growth can be seriously annoying. Making your own hibiscus hair oil can help!
5 fresh hibiscus flowers
6 fresh hibiscus leaves
100 mL of carrier oil, such as almond, olive, or coconut
What to do:
Crush the leaves and flowers together until they're a smooth pulp. Pour the carrier oil into a small pan, and add the pulp in. Mix together, and allow it to heat. Heat the oil until it begins giving off a slight fume, then remove from heat. Allow the mixture to cool, and strain the pulp out. Pour the oil into an air tight container. A mason jar with a tightly sealing lid will work well.
Take 2-4 tablespoons of the oil and massage it throughout your scalp. Use your finger tips to massage the oil into the scalp, making sure to help break up any dandruff or build up, but avoiding tangling curls. Once you've massaged it through your curls, pull the oil through the rest of your strands. Use a little bit more if needed to light cover your curls. Cover and allow the oil to sit on curls for 45-60 minutes. You can also apply heat if needed.
Once the time is up, wash your curls with a gentle, all natural shampoo. Completely saturate curls with warm water, and then scrub your scalp. Allow the shampoo to run throughout your curls. Follow up with a lightweight conditioner, and detangle gently. Remove excess water by lightly squeezing curls, apply product, and style as normal.
You can use this vitamin C and amino acid rich treatment 2-3 times per week. Your scalp and follicles will be nourished and stimulated to increase growth.
