5. Natural oils

The previous recipes are all excellent moisturising conditioners but for those wanting an immediate application without the need to mix or blend ingredients, it is possible to use natural oils on the hair to condition it quickly and effectively. Oils also care for the scalp and penetrate into the hair shaft for deep conditioning.

Use the oils when warm for a deeply nourishing hair treatment, cover with a hair cap and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.
