WHAT YOU WILL NEED
• Paring Knife
• Measuring Cup
• Measuring spoons
• Approximate Yield 500 ml
• ¼ Cup Honey/Agave Nectar
• 1 Can Coconut Milk
• ½ Cup Aloe Vera Chopped
• 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
• 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
• 1 Tablespoon Black Castor Oil
• 1 Tablespoon Moringa Oil options or any oil of your choice e.g. Jojoba
• 1½ Tablespoon Xanthan Gum and a few drops of Essential Oil of your choice, preservative, optional
Blend the honey/agave nectar, coconut milk, aloe vera, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, moringa oil (optional) until white and smooth. Then add half of the xanthan gum and blend for 30 seconds. Check the consistency and if it’s still too thin add in the remaining gum and blend until you have a creamy thick conditioner. Stir in essential oils and optional preservative.
Apply on washed hair or unwashed hair – it works just the same. Place mixture to the scalp and hair and put on a plastic cap for 15 minutes. Leave on hair covered with a cap. Leave in for minimum one hour and maximum 12 hours (yes you can sleep in it). If you are in a rush you can cover your hair with a cap and sit under a hooded dryer for 20 minutes. Wash out and style as usual. This is an excellent detangling conditioner.
Switch up the scents for the season. Try peppermint essential oils for the holidays, lavender and sweet orange for late spring and lemongrass ginger for summer.
