D-I-Y Nappturaliciously: Mixtress Magic - Heavenly Hair Oils

Now that the weather is starting to get a bit colder... it's time to incorporate oils into my hair routine to give my hair some extra moisture. Since I am wanting to be more of a D-I-Y kind of Natural, I did some research on Hair Oils that can be made at home, and of course I am going to share my knowledge... Enjoy!

Ginger Hair Oil

1 tablepoon of freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon of sesame, jojoba or olive oil.


Combine well and apply to the scalp as a hot oil treatment. Massage for 5-10 minutes and let penetrate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Cover with a hot wet towel and sit under a dryer for deeper penetration! Your scalp will feel all warm and tingly!

This oil can also be applied before shampooing the hair as a stimulating pretreatment. Or, you can apply to the scalp as you deep condition to add an extra kick to your conditioning treatments. Just make sure to rinse well!

Hibiscus Hair Oil

3 tablespoons Hibiscus Petal powder
8 oz Jojoba Oil


Add Jojoba Oil to a pot and add hibiscus petal powder and mix well. Heat the oil in a low flame. When it starts to fume, remove from heat and allow to cool. Then sieve the oil into a glass or ceramic bottle.

Acai Hair Serum

1 once Acai Oil
2 once Jojoba
1 once Camellia Oil
Jasmine Fragrance

Lavendar Rosemary Hot Oil

1/2 cup organic soybean oil or organic sunflower oil
5 drops oil of rosemary
10 drops oil of lavender


Mix all ingredients well. Warm slightly and apply the mixture to damp hair. Wrap hair in plastic wrap and apply a hot towel for 20 minutes. Shampoo.
