How to make Hibiscus Hair Oil at Home
Without any delay here I present you with the best remedy for all your hair problems – The Hibiscus Hair Oil
Things you will need
2-3 Hibiscus Fresh Flowers
2 TSP Coconut Oil
2 TSP Almond Oil
Take hibiscus flowers and separate the petals. Wash them very gently and use a soft piece of cloth and again very gently dry them.
Take a bowl and add 2 TSP Coconut Oil and 2 TSP Almond oil. Now heat it a bit using Double Boiler or Indirect Heat Method.
Now add the warm oil to the rose petals and keep it aside.
Now let this oil rest for minimum 3 to 4 hours (preferably overnight) until the flower petals becomes transparent. Try to keep this oil in sunlight for better results. For keeping any oil in sunlight always place a wooden log or even a small wooden piece. This would keep the nutrients intact and also enhance them.
After the petals become transparent, sieve it with a cloth so that no tiny petal particles remain. Otherwise these particles just stick to your hair and you might spend lot of your valuable time trying to remove it. In the below picture this is how it looked after I kept the oil in sunlight for 3 hours and after I kept it in my kitchen overnight.
Tadaaa… You are done. Now pat your shoulder because you made a really wonderful hair oil which your hair will fall in love with. The best part of the oil is its smell is simply divine. Use this hair oil for 2 weeks and while you use try using it with hot oil treatment and trust me within 2 weeks you will proudly flaunt your beautiful hair.
- Apply the oil by parting smaller sections and slowly massaging the oil with your finger tips.
- Use a mild shampoo preferably the one without Sulphates and Parabens.
- Keep the oil on your hair overnight for best results.
- You can experiment with different hair oils according to your hair type.
See you all soon with another wonderful DIY. Till then take very good care of your hair and try to avoid the common mistakes that are ruining your hair.
