Nourishing Hair Oil Recipe

Nourishing Hair Oil Recipe

Hair can get dry and brittle, especially in the summer months during time spent outside, at the beach, or swimming in a chlorine laden pool. Use of harsh chemical products can also damage hair, but this conditioning treatment helps nourish hair and strengthen it.

Try this easy and inexpensive home treatment that will naturally improve your hair. I even use this on my four year old to make her hair more manageable and easier to brush (she is very tender-headed). This recipe is so simple, it is hard to call it a recipe, but it works really well so I thought I’d share it anyway. Please note that it will leave hair oily and need to be washed/rinsed well as to not leave residue.

Hair Oil Ingredients

Hair Oil Instructions

Combine all ingredients and whisk/blend well (I used an immersion blender). You may have to heat the coconut oil slightly to get it in liquid form. Epsom salt will still be somewhat gritty but will dissolve and work in to hair once applied.
Over a sink or shower, massage oil through the hair and scalp. Put a shower cap on (or old towel) and leave on for up to 30 minutes.
In the shower, rinse well, then shampoo. If still oily, massage a small amount of baking soda through the hair to remove or use dry shampoo after the shower.

Have you ever used oil on your hair? How did it work?
This hair oil uses olive oil and coconut oil with honey to add moisture and epsom salts for a magnesium boost. This creates a moisturizing conditioner for the hair.
