DIY Hair Serum with Essential Oils

The summer sun can be damaging to hair, as well as exposure to pool chemicals. This easy DIY serum is great for hair, helping to deeply moisturize the ends of the hair.

I’d recommend using this at night or after washing hair. Start with just a few drops and only apply to the ends of hair, or from the shoulders down depending on your hair’s length.

You can use any carrier oil with this blend, though personally I recommend a fractionated coconut oil. Coconut oil is often a solid at room temperature, but a fractionated coconut oil is made to be liquid all the time. Coconut is especially helpful for dry and damaged hair since it’s so moisturizing and full of fatty acids that benefit the hair.

Essential oils that can be beneficial to the hair are lavender, rosemary, cedarwood, and geranium. Feel free to use any combination of those oils in your blend depending on the oils you have available.

Ingredients Needed:

1oz amber dropper bottle

Fractionated coconut oil

15 drops essential oils (we recommend lavender, rosemary, cedarwood, and geranium for hair)

Put the essential oils in your dropper bottle and then fill the rest of the way with coconut oil or a carrier oil. Take care not to overfill the bottle so the dropper top can go back in.

Use a 2-3 drops on the hair daily (or more depending on thickness and length) making sure to distribute through the ends of the hair evenly.
