When I lived in the mountains, winters were extremely drying on my skin and hair. To entertain myself + hoping not to succumb to "seasonal disorder", I experimented with botanical concoctions to entertain myself and enjoy a luxurious treatment.
Oh yes indeed, I succumbed to a few "seasonal disorders" (ask my brother) but the following recipe nourishes dry, winter hair and also provides an opportunity to invite friends and make it a party ...
Side note: although woolen hats are not necessary, I always applied this mask and then wore a woolen hat (to create heat) which helps the ingredients penetrate the hair and scalp.2 tablespoons of olive oil (conditioner) 2 tablespoons of light sesame oil (conditioner) 2 whole eggs (softener) 2 tablespoons of coconut milk (voluminizer) 2 tablespoons of honey (softener) 1 teaspoon of coconut oil (scent) Blend all ingredients and apply to freshly shampooed hair Note: before shampooing or applying any conditioning mask to my hair, I always brush my hair (100 strokes as mom advised) which stimulates the scalp and distributes the natural oils throughout the hair and scalp. Hair-brushing is wonderfully relaxing, especially when someone else is brushing your hair and you can sit back and enjoy the indulgence.
If you prefer not to make your own, I've created an exceptional formula "Coconut Hair Cream" which can be applied as above or used daily to style and condition the hair (and numerous customers also use this in their skin care regime. http://mountain-spirit-botanicals.com/product/coco-hair-cream/
