Deep-Conditioning Hair Mask

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 1 cup(s) shea butter
  • 3 more tablespoons shea butter
  • 1/2 cup(s) coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 more tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 9 tablespoons any combination of dried botanicals, such as rosemary, lavender, horsetail, chamomile, nettle, comfrey or calendula
  • 1 teaspoon(s) essential oils for fragrance, optional

Deep-Conditioning Hair Mask Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in an oven-proof container with a lid. Heat at 180˚ to 185˚ for 2 hours.
  2. Remove from the oven and let sit to cool slightly. While the mixture is still warm, and before it begins to solidify, strain the botanicals and discard. Pour the mixture into glass jars with tight lids. 
  3. To use, warm the jarred mask by setting the container in a hot water bath for a few minutes.
  4. Once warm, apply 1 to 2 tablespoons of product to the scalp—massaging gently with your fingertips—and work into the rest of the hair.
  5. If you have long hair, pile it loosely on top of your head after applying and wrap with a warm, damp towel or a shower cap. Leave on for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. Shampoo and style as usual. It may take an additional lather to completely remove the mask from the hair.
  6. This deep conditioner may also be used as a leave-in conditioner—use a pea-size (or smaller) amount and apply only to the ends of the hair.
  7. Store at room temperature. Hair mask will keep for as long as the shortest expiration date of any of the ingredients.
