Ingredients: 1/4 cup macademia oil, 1/2 teaspoon tea tree oil, 1/2 teaspoon of aloe vera gel or juice.
To make this mask, mix the ingredients in a small bowl until completely blended. Wash your curls and blot away excess water with a microfiber towel.

Once your curls are all covered, put a plastic cap on over your curls and allow it to sit for a minimum of 30 minutes. You can also apply heat or cover your head with a towel to keep heat in. Once you've allowed the mixture to sit, rinse with cool water and then style your curls as you normally would. Enjoy smooth, healthy and shiny curls! This treatment is great for curlies who have dry, chemically treated or distressed strands.
