Homemade Natural Moisturizing Treatments For Your Hair

natural hair moisturizers

Perms, blow dryers, curling irons, bleaches, and dyes . . . Many of the products we use to style our hair can make it dry, dull, brittle, and lifeless. This can be extremely frustrating, since the more we do to make our hair look good, the more damage it causes and the worse we look. There’s hope though. There are many natural treatments we can use to moisturize our hair and restore its shine, which will not only make us look better, but feel better too.

Simple Natural Moisturizing Treatment

One of the simplest is a blend of 1/3 ounce of organic coconut oil, 5 drops of geranium essential oil, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and 10 drops of sandalwood essential oil. Applied to your hair weekly for 20 minutes, with the hair wrapped in a towel to conserve heat and encourage penetration; this treatment will moisturize, strengthen and restore the shine to your hair. To remove the oils, add one of these natural shampoos and work into the hair before adding water, washing thoroughly and then rinsing with your choice of herbal rinses from our previous article “Herbal Hair Rinses.”

For a deep moisture treatment, use a blend of 1/3 cup herb infused oil (directions follow,) 1/8 cup raw organic Manuka honey, 10 drops of rosemary essential oil, 10 drops of peppermint essential oil, and 2 drops of vitamin E oil. Mix well, and work into the hair starting at the scalp and working down to the ends. (If your scalp is oily, start an inch or two away from the scalp and continue to the ends.) Leave on the hair a minimum of 30 minutes before washing out using the method described in the previous paragraph.

How to Make an Herb Infused Oil

  1. Mix equal amounts of dried burdock, marshmallow, nettle and parsley in a glass jar with a tight lid.
  2. Pour an organic vegetable oil such as olive oil or almond oil over the herbs until they are just covered.
  3. Stir well to eliminate air bubbles and ensure that all of the plant material is in contact with the oil. Add more oil if needed to completely cover the herbs.
  4. Seal the jar and keep it in a warm, dry area out of direct sunlight for at least two weeks, shaking or stirring the mixture daily.
  5. Strain the oil through several layers of cheesecloth or a large coffee filter into another glass jar, squeezing out as much oil as possible.
  6. Seal and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Above are some of my favorite natural hair moisturizing treatments that you can make at home, but if you don’t have the time or the ingredients to make your own, then I believe applying Pure Emu Oil is the most effective hair moisturizer. If your hair feels greasy after application then you used too much. When it comes to applying emu oil to your hair, a little goes a long way.

You can pick up a bottle of emu oil on Amazon that’s ready to apply to your hair.
