I was in the process of whipping up a batch of my hair and body oil and thought I would share my recipe with you. As you may know, I have dry hair and skin. 😦 I have tried so many products to help alleviate the dryness. For me, there hasn’t been one item that has completely eradicated the dry skin. I find that I have to use a combination of things to see results. I often use the oil for hot oil treatments, to moisturize my hair, to moisturize my skin, as a cuticle treatment, etc. Do you use oils to moisturize your skin? Let me know which are your favorites.
35% Olive Oil -(Adds moisture to the scalp and skin, makes hair soft and shiny, has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that fight off common scalp and hair problems).
25% Coconut Oil -(Naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal, an excellent moisturizer, and can penetrate hair better than many oils and smells great).
20% Sweet Almond Oil- (Rich in Vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc, excellent moisturizer, and also smells great).
10% Jamaican Black Castor Oil* (Moisturizes, thickens, strengthens and rapidly increases hair growth. JBCO increases blood flow to the scalp, supplying valuable nutrients to hair follicles)
10% Jojoba Oil (The only oil that closely resembles human sebum, it is anti- bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Jojoba oil is an excellent moisturizer and emollient).
* I use this interchangeably with Haitian Black Castor Oil when available.
