"These are a few of my favorite things."
I'm 'doin' hair' today--both girls' and mine. It is a task but not like it used to be. For those of you who may be 'natural' in how you wear and do your hair I just thought I'd share my VERY favorite homemade hair conditioner. I have to say, every time I use it, I feel wonderful. Not only do I enjoy the smell of it, but it leaves my/our hair lovely (moisturized, without too much oily-ness). I came upon this recipe in viewing a natural hair care video on YouTube (yet cannot remember which one).
Homemade Hair Conditioner
3.5 oz coconut milk
3.5 oz coconut oil
1 Tbsp olive oil
1Tbsp castor oil or honey (I use honey)
Makes 2 cups
After cleaning hair & scalp (I use a no-poo cleaning**), put conditioner in hair. (I part the hair and put it in at the scalp and massage it through to the ends.)
Cover hair with a cap and leave on for 1-2 hours. (I usually sit under a dryer for 15-30 minutes.)
Rinse in warm water until water runs through clear.
Baking Soda/Water paste (rub into scalp & rinse. do as many times as necessary)
Then rinse with an Apple Cider Vinegar/Water Mix (1/3 ACV & 2/3 water)
