Fruits and vegetables are an essential part of any healthy diet. Great for your body, but how about your hair? This hair oil treatment was inspired by a food group that is loved by some, hated by others, and needed by all. This simple formula is composed of five fruit and vegetable ingredients that each bring something unique and beneficial to the table. (No pun intended)
Broccoli Seed Oil is a surprisingly useful ingredient. It lends shine and moisture to hair formulas without making them too heavy. Blueberry Seed Oil is one of nature’s most potent sources of antioxidants! Its easily penetrating texture keeps this hair oil on the light side. Jojoba Oil does not come from a fruit or vegetable, in fact, it comes from a nut. But I just couldn’t leave it out of a hair oil! It’s composition is very close to hair’s natural conditioner, sebum. Jojoba acts as an intensive conditioner, while helping to shield hair from damage. Watermelon Seed Oil is an all around favorite ingredient of mine. Traditionally called Ootanga or Kalahari Oil in Africa, it has been used for generations in African skin and hair care. It is highly moisturizing and like its accompanying ingredients, non-greasy. Helio Carrot Root (Total) CO2 Extract is is rich in beta carotene and vitamins A and E, making it a highly nutritive addition to the recipe.
Fruit & Veggie Hair Oil
Combine all ingredients in a measuring cup and mix well.
This recipe makes about 2 oz. of hair oil. I recommend using a high density plastic bottle with a disc cap or snap cap for easy use in or out of the shower.
This oil can be warmed gently before use, or applied at room temperature. Massage a small portion of oil into your hair and scalp. Leave this conditioning oil in your hair for between 10 and 30 minutes. Shampoo you hair as usual, adding another conditioner if needed. Some people may need to shampoo twice to eliminate all of the oil from their hair.
