- 1 c Coconut Oil (the semi solid kind, not the fractionated one used in other concoctions. This one can be found in the cooking oil section at your grocery store.)
- 10 dropsMelaleuca (Tea Tree) Oil
- Mix ingredients together with a fork.
- Scoop a small amount into hand (less than you would for gel or moose. A little goes a long way.) and rub your hands together to make the coconut oil turn to liquid from the heat of your hands and then spread through the hair.
Why Melaleuca and not another oil? Melaleuca is actually very good for skin. People use it as a toner. I found that it really helps my dry scalp. It is also good for repelling insects and I don't want any lice in my head. haha! I figured it was just an extra bonus.Technically, you could use whatever type of essential oil you want. This is just what and why I chose this one. =o)
I hope you love this as much as I do.
