Hair Mask Recipe
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Dropper Bottle
Start off by mixing a few ounces of sweet almond oil with a few drops of each essential oil in the dropper bottle. Apply this mixture with the dropper to your scalp, massaging in with the tips of your fingers for a few minutes. Once the entire scalp is saturated with the oil mixture, start working in the remaining sweet almond oil into the remaining hair, down to the tips. Once all the hair is saturated, twist it up into a bun or a braid.
It is best to do this treatment at night time, and to sleep with it in your hair, that way it has time to fully penetrate each strand. Make sure to thoroughly wash your hair with shampoo the next morning to get all the oil residue out. I like to do this mask on dirty hair since I have to wash the oil out anyway.
For an extra boost of shine, follow your shampooing with a rinse of apple cider vinegar. The vinegar cuts through any product build up in the hair, and leaves it super shiny and smooth.
