DIY Hair Serum Recipe - Defrizz and shine

From time to time we like to play around and create great examples of products made from all natural ingredients that really work. Some we make available online for sale, others we just share the recipes for. This is one of those times.

Each one of these ingredients brings a myriad of benefits for your hair keeping it healthy, encouraging growth and naturally tames.

To make this serum you just need a bottle or blending bowl. Simpy add the ingredients together and shake or mix well. To use, warm a few drops in the palm of your hand and massage through hair starting at the tips and working up to the scalp. Leave in for 15 minutes for a quick treatment and then wash out or keep on hair and continue to style for a nourishing leave in serum.

We were so lucky to chat to Modern Hair and Beauty magazine about all things oil and beauty for their 13th issue. From the what's in it that does it, to our pick of tips for oils for beauty and even use around the house.

There is such a big oily world out there still being explored and we're only just starting to understand the importance of natural ingredients in skin care and health. Let alone how essential oils can improve every day living.

We are also super excited that natural beauty alternatives and raw ingredients are finally landing themselves on the mainstream map and we're looking forward to bringing new discoveries to light across 2018.

Keep an eye out on our resources page for new studies, products and references.
