Hair Oil Mix with Shea Butter - DIY Beauty

Finally I had a bit of spare time to create something with my own hands to enjoy. I run out of my hair oil treatments and for some time was just using 100% pure coconut oil, what isn't a bad thing to do. Read here about coconut oil benefits and qualities for skin and hair.

Hair oil mix with Shea butter

Shea butter is a natural conditioner for hair, it has moisturising and healing properties to restore and make your hair smooth and soft.  Shea butter is good as well to calm an irritated scalp and a natural heat and UV protector. Olive oil along with being a natural hair conditioner promotes a healthy hair growth. Castor oil promotes hair strength and restore scalp balance (hair growth, remedy from dandruff). Along with a head massage this oil will stimulate circulation and will help you to keep your scalp and hair strong and healthy. 

To make one of your own you will need:

- 200g Shea butter;
- 150ml Olive oil;
- 50ml Castor Oil (I am using Black Castor Oil)
- 50 drops of essential oil of your choice (I am using Blended Rose and Pure Vanilla essential oil, 30:20 drops) 

You will need as well:

- Empty bottle to store your oil mix;
- A bowl;
- One spoon for mixing and/or whisk;
- A pot with a little bit of water for melting

Place all the ingredients into a clean bowl apart from the essential oil/s. 

Place a pot with a little bit of water in it on the low-medium flame and put your bowl inside to melt the Shea butter and combine all the ingredient together.

Cool the mixture for about 5 minutes and add your essential oil/s. Pour carefully into a clean bottle or jar to cool completely and store your oil in cool and dry place for no longer than 6 months. It will harden up when in cool state, just warm the mixture up the same way you warm up the coconut oil. If you live in the warmer climate it will stay in a liquid form.

I use this oil once a week as part of my deep conditioning treatment. 
Even after first use, I have noticed a difference - my hair appeared stronger and softer. It is part of my hair care routine this spring , try it for yourself and share your experience in the comments below.
