Rose And Hibiscus Whipped Conditioner For Dry Hair
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 3-4 tablespoons of Shea Butter (preferably organic)
- 3-4 tablespoons of Cocoa Butter (preferably organic)
- 3-4 tablespoons of cold-pressed coconut oil
- 2-3 roses of your favorite color 2 hibiscus flowers
- 2-3 drops of rose essential oil
- 8-10 drops of Vitamin E oil
- A mason jar to store your whipped conditioner
Shea butter and cocoa butter provide deep nourishment and moisture to your hair while coconut oil promotes scalp health and fights dandruff due to it’s anti-fungul properties. Rose or rose water is believed to balance your hair’s pH while hibiscus is rich in amino acids that helps with hair growth and strengthen your roots. I am also adding a few drops of organic rose essential oil to add some natural fragrance to this conditioner along with vitamin E oil that works as an anti-inflammatory and repairs damaged hair follicles.
STEP ONE :
Start off by adding your shea butter, cocoa butter and cold-pressed coconut oil into a large bowl.
Heat the oils in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute until is has completely melted.
Meanwhile, separate the rose and hibiscus petals from the flowers and add them into the hot oil for a minimum of 2 hours until they infuse. The longer you keep them standing, the more intense the conditioner gets. If you are planning on keeping it overnight, place the bowl in a slightly larger bowl filled with hot water. Make sure the water does not spill into the oils. Keeping the oils warm ensure that the flowers thoroughly infuse in them.
Using a hand blender, roughly blitz the oils and flower mixture until the petals break down into smaller pieces. Add in a few drops of the rose essential oil and 8-10 drops of vitamin E oil for some extra nourishment. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Once the oils are cold and solidified, using an electric beater, whip the mixture for 2-3 minutes until it is light, airy and has formed soft peaks. Transfer the conditioner into an air-tight mason jar to store. Refrigerate and use as desired.
I personally like to use it at night right before I go to bed. This allows oils to saturate in my hair overnight and the nutrients to really penetrate. I massage a few dollops into my hair and ensure it is applied from root to tip. To help your hair absorb the nutrients better, you can also wrap it with a warm towel. I just simply used the Zephyr Hair Dryer to apply some heat over my towel turban.
And there you have it, ladies! An incredibly luxurious and decadent deep conditioner that will provide the much needed TLC for your hair.
