I realized that all summer I had been abandoning my beloved oils. I know, what's up with that, right? But now that it's not so warm out anymore, I am crawling back to them. Lol.
When it gets cold, I bust out my castor oil because it's thick and is really good at helping my hair retain moisture in the cold and dry months. It also gives my hair a fabulous sheen; it's not even a joke. Once it gets warm though, it's too heavy so I put it away. I have found a way to use it all year round and I'm so silly that I didn't do this earlier: mix it with lighter oils to thin it out, duh! So that's what I did. Here's the recipe to my latest oil mix:
* 2oz Castor Oil
* 2oz Grapeseed Oil
* 2oz Coconut Oil
* 5 drops of Tangerine Essential Oil for a little scent
These three oils are my favorite oils. I also like avocado oil and sweet almond oil but they are not as cost effective as these three oils are so I do not buy/use them frequently. I use this mix for sealing my hair especially after I've washed it. I'll spritz on some of my hair mist (water, aloe vera juice and grapeseed oil) and then seal with this mix (first) and a little bit of a hair cream. (I do all of this in sections, of course.) This combo has my hair feeling nice. ;D
What oils do you like to mix together?
Next mix up for me is my homemade conditioner (post coming soon!). My lovely Yes to Cucumbers conditioner is running out and I wanna go back to making my own conditioner.
