Hello everyone! As promised, here’s the recipe to my second hair treatment for my dry, color-treated hair! This one has only three ingredients and I use this when I want my hair to be deeply nourished and replenished from the inside out. Heat is also required for this recipe, so be ready!
Olive Oil (extra virgin)
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
If you don’t have raw honey, clover honey will do just fine as a substitute. With that being said, let’s get to the recipe!
Start with measuring out 2-3 tablespoons of both olive oil and Jamaican Black castor oil for a small jar or bowl.
Add one teaspoon of raw honey (or clover honey) to the oil mixture. Sit this treatment off to the side for a moment.
Gently heat up some water by either on the stove, in the microwave or even hot water from your coffee machine. If you use your coffee machine, you will have to transfer the water to another container.
Place the jar or bowl containing the hair treatment into the hot water to heat it up. Stir with a wooden stick or the tip of a butter knife until the honey has somewhat melted into the oils. If the water starts to cool (microwave or coffee machine), feel free to reheat it.
Since the opening on my coffee pot is wide enough, I like to lace the small jar right inside the pot, into the the hot water. I would NOT recommend doing this though.
After that, the treatment is ready! Remember, if you have a lot of hair or thick hair, you will have to section it to ensure even application. The treatment will be warm and somewhat sticky, so only apply to your hair’s mid-shaft to ends, NOT your scalp.
I leave it on up to 30 minutes and rinse with warm water afterwards to ensure the treatment is completely gone. This treatment leaves my hair super soft and a bit stronger too!
Try this out for yourself! It’s very simple and your hair will thank you for it!
