DIY Sea Buckthorn Mask for Dry, Damaged Hair


by Emilia Obiekea of AdoreBotanicals.com

Sea Buckthorn oil is highly prized due to its great abilities to grow hair, heal damaged skin and reduce symptoms of skin and hair conditions. This oil is dark and beautifully rich. It contains beta carotene (contributes to its orange-red pigment), tocopherols (vitamin E), essential fatty acids (such as: linoleic, Oleic, Palmitic, Stearic) and phytosterols. Just like coconut oil, it solidifies and liquefies depending on the temperature. It is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. Never use it straight. Although it is a not an essential oil it is best to treat it as one. Simply diluted in another carrier oil and it is ready to use.

One of the techniques shown in the video was the addition of an essential oil to each and every hair product that comes into contact with my scalp. The essential oil in question? Peppermint oil.

I find that my hair loves natural remedies, since I have yet to have any side effects from using them.
