Hitting the gym these holidays? Here some hair tips for working out

Make your own moisturizer
Natural hair always needs a little extra nourishment, I sometimes think that my natural hair needs more moisture and care then my relaxed hair ever did.


Oils and Butters that are loaded with large amounts of fatty acids which are what nourish my hair properly. Lightweight oils don’t really do much for my hair, besides add some extra nutrients. Castor oil is thick and heavy oil, but it nourishes and moisturizes my hair for days sometimes.


I love adding heavy oils to my Shea butter it always works best. So today’s hair recipe is just that a heavy but adequate hair moisturizer.

Things you will need for this hair recipe
• Aloe Vera Gel: The enzymes in Aloe Vera, stimulate hair growth.


• Coconut Oil: Coconut oil, contains lauric acid, lauric is able to penetrate the hair shaft and deliver nutrients and nourishment to the hair shaft


• Shea Butter: Shea Butter is packed with Vitamins, which is great to regenerate the hair and scalp, Shea butter is also packed with fatty acids which help keep the hair nourished and moist.


• Panthenol: Panthenol is an excellent protein binder. When panthenol is added or rather applied to the hair shaft, is binds the protein in the hair strongly. Greatly reducing split ends.


• Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is nourishing oil that is packed with, proteins. Avocado oil, also always for some slip, so in turn Avocado oil acts as a natural silicon. Avocado oil also acts as a natural silicone.


• Olive Oil: Olive oil is a great hair moisturizer. Olive oil acts as a natural hair conditioner. It can also provide a slip to hair

2. Using the double boiler method melt the Shea butter {using the double boiler method also helps not destroy the Shea butters nutrients}
3. When the Shea Butter has melted, add the oils, panthenol, and blend.
