DIY Recipe: Hemp & Argan Hair Serum

I have a deep kind of love for Argan Oil. It has SO many wonderful beauty benefits that it’s hard not to! For hair, it works wonders as a deep conditioning agent, taming dry fly aways and nourishing strands- which is why you see it in hair products everywhere!

Using oil for your hair can help to nourish and fortify your hair follicles when massaged into the scalp. When worked into your locks, it helps to moisturize and seal hydrate your strands.

Via Pinterest, I came across this recipe from Little Green Dot. This easy treatment can be made in minutes and is packed FULL of hair-loving oils that will soak in and leave your locks silky and shiny! I just HAD to give it a try!

Again, I get most of my ingredients from http://www.Bulkapothecary.com

Here’s my version:

You’ll need:

Hemp Seed Oil

Argan Oil

Rosemary Essential Oil

3

Rosemary essential oil is amazing for the hair! It’s antibacterial which helps to cleanse hair cuticles and stimulate blood flow, leading to healthier hair!

4

Hemp Seed Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and protein. It’s also packed full of vitamin E. Argan Oil is a wonderfully lightweight moisturizer that is perfect for hair use. These two used together form a powerful combination!

Mix together 2/3 cup Hemp Seed Oil and 1/3 cup Argan oil.

5

Stir the two oils together to be sure they’re evenly blended.

6

Add in 1 teaspoon Rosemary Essential Oil and stir to blend. If this amount is too strong for you, start with ½ teaspoon. You can also add a little more later on if you tolerate the small amount well.

7

Carefully transfer the oil blend to a bottle. If you’re planning to store the serum on the top of your sink or in any area exposed to sunlight, use a dark amber colored bottle. If using a clear bottle, store the mixture under your sink away from the light. This will help to preserve the oils.

Once a week:

Massage the serum into the scalp and down the strands of clean hair. Allow the oil to soak into the scalp and hair by leaving it on for at least 20 minutes (You can also leave it on overnight for deeper saturation). Wash hair normally when finished. For dry hair with frizz- work a few drops into the ends to tame.

By using this serum treatment once a week, you’ll notice stronger, healthier looking hair in no time!

ENJOY!
