Whether you spend the entire summer in the sun, or only a few choice weekends, your hair is subject to dehydration and breakage. In order to combat the harsh summer sun and drying effects of the ocean water, I took a cue from the Olsen’s hair stylist, Mark Townsend. His recipe for this DIY hydrating hair oil locks in moisture and protects your hair from the elements. After mixing the ingredients together, I used a small funnel to transfer the oil mixture into a glass bottle with eye dropper dispenser. I keep this in my beach bag and apply it to my hair as soon as I get out of the ocean or pool.
Hydrating Hair Oil Recipe
1 Cup of raw, unrefined coconut oil
1 T Jojoba oil
1 T Macadamia oil
1 T Almond oil
1 T Vitamin E
** For brunettes, add a drop or two of carrot oil for extra shine. Carrot oil will dull blonde hair, so skip this if you have lighter locks.
