|Did You Know?
make your own essential oil based hair conditioner with the following
- 1 Tbsp Lanolin
- 1 Tbsp Glycerine
- 1 Tbsp Almond Oil
- 3 drops of Rosemary
(dark hair) OR Chamomile (light)
- 1 egg
Combine the first four
ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Warm the mixture slightly. Beat in
the egg. (Remember only warm the mixture slightly or you will end up
with scrambled eggs on your head!) Once the egg is well mixed with
the other ingredients, massage the mixture into the hair and scalp.
Place either a bath cap or a towel over your hair and allow the conditioner
to penetrate for about 10 minutes. Finally, rinse your hair thoroughly,
and the beautiful lustre will be revealed!
