Got brittle and dehydrated hair? Then it’s time to mix up this DIY hair serum for dry hair!
Do you know how easy it is to make a DIY hair serum for dry hair?! Why bother buying pricey store-bought hair serums that contain things such as mineral oil, preservatives like parabens, and other unnecessary chemicals? If you follow the recipe below, you’ll see what I mean. You only need a few ingredients and your serum is going to last for a very long time. What’s more is that it works incredibly well.
Here are the ingredients we’re going to be using:
- Castor oil – This acts as a thick emollient to lubricate dry hair. It is very thick, so we’re using just 1 tbsp. Don’t use more than this.
- Avocado oil – Avocado oil has a thick consistency, like castor oil. It’s filled with nourishing fatty acids that feed hair and keep it healthy. It’s also good as a detangling oil for dry hair.
- Sweet almond oil – Almond oil is the medium-light oil that thins out the thick castor and almond oils. It has anti-frizz properties and keeps hair moisturized.
- Lavender oil – Lavender oil seals moisture into hair and balances sebum production. It’s a good essential oil for dry hair.
- Sandalwood oil – Sandalwood oil is very moisturizing in nature. It also has a nice woodsy scent that’s fantastic on hair.
