DIY Deep Hair Conditioner

Did you know that you can use essential oils for hair? As gentle, natural components derived from the earth, certain essential oils can promote healthy-looking hair. While many hair products on the market are filled with chemicals, using essential oils for hair provides you with a safe, natural way to support beautiful locks. I recently made this DIY Deep Hair Conditioner at home using some of my favorite doTERRA essential oils—Peppermint and Geranium. With only a few ingredients and your choice of essential oils, you can easily make this essential oil deep conditioner at home to give your hair a smooth, healthy shine.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 drops doTERRA essential oils
Stand or hand mixer

A few great essential oils for your hair include: Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Geranium, and Clary Sage. You can use one or all five of the essential oils in your deep conditioner.

Directions:
Put coconut oil, olive oil, and essential oils in mixing bowl.
Mix on medium/high speed for 5 minutes or until ingredients are whipped to a thick and creamy consistency.
Once whipped, apply to clean dry hair.
Comb through with wide tooth comb to evenly distribute.
Let sit 15-20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and style as desired.
Repeat once a week or as often as desired.
Enjoy your soft, healthy, and chemical-free hair!
