Since it mimics sebum and helps lock in moisture, Macadamia Oil really is the logical choice when it comes to hair care. It conditions and softens the hair, leaving it silky soft and manageable. Perfect for fly-away or frizzy hair, it helps calm the hair down from the roots right through to the tips, giving it a smooth, lustrous sheen that will have friends begging you for your ‘secret’ hair treatment.
Of course you can use 1-2 drops of neat Macadamia Oil directly on your hair when it needs a pick me up, however when used in conjunction with aromatherapy, it takes your hair care to a whole new level. Rosemary essential oil is traditionally used for darker hair, while Roman chamomile is ideal for blondes. However, the most important thing is enjoying the aroma of whichever essential oil you choose. Not only will these oil blends condition your hair, but they are vital for improving the condition of your scalp. Remember, a healthy scalp means healthy (and happy) hair.
DIY Hair Conditioning Oil Blend
What you need:
- 15 ml Macadamia Oil
- 6 drops of essential oil (Rosemary for dark hair or Roman Chamomile for blonde)
What to do:
Dampen hair and gently towel dry.
Massage oil blend into the hair, paying attention to the scalp and working the blend from the roots right through to the ends.
Wrap hair in a warm towel and leave for 15-30 minutes.
Before washing out, add a teaspoon of shampoo to your hair (natural, fragrance-free is best if you have it). This builds up an emulsion which will help wash out the oil.
Wash your hair and allow to dry naturally
