Vanilla Rose Hair Serum

I love mixing and blending oils and seeing what works and doesn’t for my skin and hair. I came across infusing oils with vanilla pods and coffee very recently, I wonder why I never thought of that though, anyway it caught my attention and I decided to infuse some Madagascan vanilla pods in sweet almond oil and sunflower oil. I did this over a period of two to three weeks but you can just heat up the oil and pods for a few minutes, allow to rest for a while and your infused oil is ready  or you could actually infuse for a period of 4 to 6 weeks, which is what am doing right now. It all a personal choice. To Infuse; I got a bottle, added the vanilla pods, poured in my oil and kept it in my kitchen cabinet for two to three weeks. This oil infusion inspired my hair serum, since the idea was to blend the vanilla oil with other oils for a sealant, I decided to add a little …

Lavender Infused Hot Oil Treatment

Hot oil treatment is a way of deep conditioning the hair because it allows the oil or oils to penetrate deep into the hair shaft, preventing dryness and breakage. It also helps in treating scalp issues like dandruff and flakiness. Hair dryness is something every coily,curly, Afro textured hair person or persons will struggle with(including me) and this is so because the natural oil from the scalp that is supposed to travel to the tip of the hair to moisturize it, cannot do so due to the  coils and curls. Hot oil treatment can be done by the use of one oil (olive oil), or a blend of oils with the addition of essential oils (olive oil and tea tree oil,peppermint,lemon grass etc), or a blend of multiple oils and essential oils. The application is a personal choice based on what you think your needs. If you don’t mind a little bit of oil  in your hair then you can do the treatment after washing,  however if you are not a fan of oily hair …
