Ingredients Needed

There is a good number of ingredients in this DIY Hair Treatment, but this is what makes it such a powerhouse for the health of the hair.

  • Shea butter, natural and organic
  • Raw (pure) beeswax, shredded
  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Argan oil, carrier
  • Jojoba oil, carrier
  • Watercress oil (rocca oil), carrier
  • Lavender oil, carrier
  • Mica color powder
  • Essential oil

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Bowl
  • Tablespoon
  • Wooden popsicle
  • Glass container to store your Effective DIY Hair Treatment

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

4- Melt the contents in a bain-marie (hot water bath). A bain-marie is done by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl. As it melts, make sure to mix every now and then.

How To Use: Effective DIY Hair Treatment

Using this nourishing oil bath is a simple yet indulgent experience that will leave your hair feeling revitalized and gorgeous. Follow these easy steps to make the most of this Effective DIY Hair Treatment:

  1. Prepare: Start by picking up a small amount of the DIY hair treatment. Gently rub the treatment between your palms to warm and activate the natural ingredients.
  2. Apply to the Scalp (if you have fine hair, do not apply it to the scalp): Begin by applying the treatment to your scalp. Using your fingertips, gently massage the treatment into your scalp using circular motions. This massage not only helps distribute the nourishing oils but also stimulates blood circulation, promoting healthy hair growth.
  3. Work Through the Hair: After treating your scalp, move on to your hair. Apply the treatment to the lengths and ends of your hair, making sure to distribute it evenly. Use your fingers to rub the treatment into your hair strands, allowing the natural goodness to penetrate deeply.
  4. Indulge in a Massage: Take a few extra moments to give yourself a soothing scalp and hair massage. The calming sensation of the treatment combined with the massage helps to relax your mind and enhance the overall experience.
  5. Leave-In Time: For maximum benefits, leave the treatment on your hair for at least 30 minutes. You can also choose to leave it on overnight for an intensive treatment. Simply cover your hair with a shower cap or wrap it in a towel to prevent any transfer.
  6. Rinse and Cleanse: After the desired leave-in time, wash your hair with a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. You may need to shampoo twice to ensure that all the treatment is thoroughly removed.
  7. Feel the Transformation: Once your hair is clean and dry, you’ll notice the immediate effects of the nourishing oil bath. Your hair will feel softer, smoother, and more manageable. Over time, regular use of this treatment will help combat frizz, dryness, and breakage, giving you the beautiful hair you’ve been longing for.

Incorporate this Effective DIY Hair Treatment into your hair care routine on a weekly basis to maintain the health and radiance of your locks.
