I was looking in my bathroom’s linen closet where I store all of my hair supplies and noticed that I have acquired a bunch of oils over the past three weeks. It looks like an apothecary (e.g. pharmacy). These are the oils that I use to do my hot oil mixes (pre-poos), scalp massages and sealing oil. You see, these oils are like Lay’s Potato Chips — you can’t have just one! I love compounding them, as they all have uses that are beneficial (see post on benefits of oils). I will share my recipes (and hopefully post a video on how I make them soon).
I am also thinking about trying the Jamaican Black Castor Oil … I heard great things about it … we shall see. It’s not too pricey on Amazon, but I wish they had it at Vitacost, my new favorite place to shop!!
Coconut oil (I melted it and poured the liquid part in)
A few drops of either Vitamin E, Jojoba or Sweet Almond Oil mixed in with a few drops of tea tree, eucalyptus and/or lavender.
NOTE! Do not use pure essential oils (e.g. the lavender, eucalyptus, and tea tree) on your hair! They need a “carrier oil” such as Vitamin E, Jojoba, Coconut or Sweet Almond!
