Are You A Mixologist?- Natural Hair Product Recipes


By Dr. Phoenyx Austin

I love mixing stuff! Whether it’s experimenting with ingredients like coconut milk and avocados for delectable hair treatments, or mixing ingredients like essential oils and sugar to make yummy body scrubs- I love mixing things! And today I’d like to focus on hair.

Below is one of my favorite homemade deep conditioning treatments. Here’s the recipe:
  • ¼ cup of Coconut Milk (full fat)
  • ¼ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 small avocado
Mix all ingredients in blender under low speed until smooth. Then place on hair and allow to sit for 30 minutes. You can do a more intense deep conditioning treatment by using a heat cap.
After time has elapsed, thoroughly rinse hair, and voila! Your hair will be soft, moisturized, and I’ve even found that this recipe also helps elongate my curls!

So ladies, are any of you mixologists?

I'm more of a semi-homemade mixologist. My favorite shea butter recipe includes raw unrefined shea butter and vatika coconut oil. My favorite deep treatment is Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner mixed with olive oil and honey.

My favorite hair butter treatment is 7 oz. cupuca butter, 7 oz. tucuma butter and 7 oz. murumuru butter. Mix together well and use to seal my ends. It's great for it.

I just went to her page and there were postings about oral sex and stuff. I thought it was just a natural hair page.

I make a oil mix with EVOO, EVCO, tea tree oil and neem oil. I use it as a pre-shampoo hot oil treatment and detangler.

I make a ACV, tea, honey and tea tree oil mix. I use it as an after-shampoo rinse.

I make a shea butter, aloe vera gel, EVCO and honey mix that I use as a end sealant and a body butter.

My first mix was my shea butter mix. 8oz container amount of shea butter, 6 teaspoons of coconut oil, 4 teaspoons of olive oil, 3 teaspoons of aloe vera gel, 20 drops of vanilla fragrance oil (makes the shea butter smell like chocolate!) I love it. Best sealant ever!

I can't wait to try this! Thanks. My question is, I'm a bit weary of mixing new products because my stylist told me that some of the ingredients people cite often are actually harmful. For instance, she told me that honey turns into peroxide when left on the hair and can be very dangerous. But, I live for my olive and coconut oils, so I'm definitely going to try this one.

Just perfected my body butter...
8oz "shea" butter (the fake kind they sell most places)
4T olive oil
4T jojoba oil
3T coconut oil
3T castor oil

Melt shea butter in a double boiler. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Combine all oils in a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer. Pour into container of your choice. Place container in the fridge or freezer to solidify.

This mixture is smooth and even cleared up my eczema.

I have thick, coarse hair, and what works for me is just about anything with avocado and aloe vera. For some reason, the two of them make my hair very soft and helps to keep the moisture in it.

I like to mix together shea butter, evco, aloe vera gel, tea tree oil & peppermint oil. My hair loves it.

I make unpetroleum jelly and a pomade/hair grease that is great for body and hair.

1/4 Cup Castor Oil
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 oz beeswax (weight)

I will also add infused oils and eo blends depending on how I want I'm using for. Check out my blog for more recipes. www.tresmoi11.blogspot.com
