Tools and materials:

  • Pure almond oil
  • Castor oil
  • Walnut oil
  • Flaxseed oil
  • Bergamot essential oil
  • Rose-scented essential oil
  • Measuring spoons
  • Stirring utensil
  • Pump bottle
Mixing the oils

1. Mixing the oils

Start by gathering your oils. You'll need 1 part flaxseed oil, 1 part castor oil, 1.5 parts almond oil, and 0.5 part walnut oil.

For example, if you're using 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil, you'll need 1 tablespoon of castor oil, 1.5 tablespoons of almond oil, and 0.5 tablespoons of walnut oil.

Combine these oils in a clean container.

Blending oils

2. Blending the oils

Using a stirring utensil, gently stir the oils together. This will ensure that all the ingredients are evenly distributed and mixed.

Adding essential oils

3. Adding essential oils

For a lovely scent, we'll add some essential oils. Add 5 drops of Bergamot essential oil and 10 drops of rose-scented essential oil to the oil blend.

Remember, these essential oils are mainly for the fragrance and don't have a direct impact on your hair.

5. Application for everyday use

For your daily hair care routine, simply spray one pump of the serum onto the palm of your hand.

Rub your hands together to spread the serum evenly and then apply it to the ends of your hair. This will help moisturize, add shine and control frizz.

6. Weekly deep oil treatment

Once a week, treat your hair with a deep oil treatment.

Before bedtime, apply a generous amount of the serum to your hair, focusing on the roots and working your way to the ends.

Gently massage your scalp for a few minutes to promote circulation. Cover your hair with a shower cap to prevent any mess, and leave the serum on overnight.
