Wondering how to tame your frizzy hair or repair your damaged tresses? Among the countless options available for treating the dry and damaged hair, few of us know about the effectiveness of jasmine and sandalwood hair balm. Jasmine oil has been used for centuries for moisturizing and nourishing the scalp. Jasmine soothes and cools the scalp and helps in providing relief from itching and irritation. Its antiseptic property helps in fighting dandruff. Sandalwood too is beneficial for the hair. The astringent property of sandalwood helps in maintaining the natural pH balance of the scalp. It cools the scalp and reduces itching.
When applied to the tresses, jasmine and sandalwood hair balm moisturizes the tresses, makes them soft, smooth and lustrous. Frequent application of the herbal hair balm strengthens the hair follicles, reduces dandruff and promotes hair growth.
Here Is How You Can Make An Inexpensive Hair Balm With Jasmine And Sandalwood Oil At Home:
Ingredients You Will Need
To make the hair balm you will need two ounces of coconut butter and one ounce each of grated beeswax, shea butter, almond oil and wheat germ oil and 20 drops each of jasmine essential oil and sandalwood essential oil.
To further boost the healing property of the hair balm, add rosemary to the recipe. Rosemary stimulates hair growth and treats dandruff. You can add 1 ml of rosemary extract or 10 drops of rosemary essential oil. An easier way to include rosemary in the hair balm recipe is to simmer rosemary in coconut oil for 10 to 15 minutes and add a tablespoon of the rosemary infused oil to the hair balm.
How to Make
Melt Beeswax And Shea Butter
Pour water on a large pan and bring it to boil. When the water starts boiling, reduce the heat. Put the grated beeswax and shea butter in a pot and place the pot on the simmering water. Melt the beeswax and shea butter on low heat. Stir to combine the ingredients.
Add The Oils
After the beeswax and shea butter have melted, add coconut oil, almond oil and wheat germ oil. Keep on stirring to mix the oils with the melted butter and beeswax.
Add Essential Oils
Remove the pan from the heat and keep it aside for a few minutes. After the mixture cools down slightly, add the rosemary extract and the jasmine and sandalwood essential oils. Mix them well. Preserve the hair balm in an air tight container.
