DIY @ Home Beauty: Sweet Hair Oil

Beauty from the Kitchen

My favourite oil is almond oil. I use it in cooking, baking, on my skin and in my hair for its neutral and comparitively sweet flavour to other oils such as olive or canola.

Just beware of over-conditoning hair if you’re planning to leave the house afterwards as excessive moisturizing product can easily saturate most hair types.

Before your shower pour a little almond oil in your hands and rub into the hair from tips to roots, concentrating on the ends of the hair. Apply as much or as little as you wish; the shampoo will help rebalance the moisture level.

Twist or tie up your hair. Put on a plastic shower cap and, if you like, wrap a towel around your head for extra insultation. The more time you leave the oil on before the shower, the more it will be effected by the heat from your head.

If you find your hair is softer and more manageable, try this once a week or once a month to give your hair some love in the dry months.
