Leave in Hair Conditioner (also doubles as “after swimming”) skin conditioner
I had been struggling with frizzy hair and initially used apple cider vinegar for this recipe. Coconut cider vinegar makes a much better scented leave in conditioner and also my hair is much smoother. The smell is amazing and I get comments every day about the “perfume” I am wearing. The essential oils are nourishing to the hair, and soften the hair.
• 250 mL container (old natural shampoo bottle)
• 85 mL coconut cider vinegar
• 4 drops lemon myrtle essential oil
• 4 drops cedarwood essential oil
• 4 drops geranium essential oil
• 4 drops patchouli essential oil
• Filtered water
What to do:
Add coconut cider vinegar and essential oils to a small container. Use only pure and pristine essential oils. Top up container with filtered water. You can use the mix straight away, but allow 3 days if possible for the scent to synergise. It smells divine!
To use: If you have curly hair, scrunch hair and tip a small amount through. Do not brush. Dry naturally or use a diffuser hairdryer if possible. If you have straight hair, comb a small amount through and style as usual.
To use as a skin conditioner: tip directly onto skin after swimming or showering in chlorine. Coconut cider vinegar neutralises chlorine and your skin will be left smelling beautiful and softer.
