Caramel Hair Treatment

Recipe provided by HowDoesShe

Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp. Honey
  • 6 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 overripe Bananas
  • 3 tbsp. Molasses
  • 1 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. Wheat Germ Oil

Instructions:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture through a strainer and into a saucepan. Place the pan on medium heat and stir constantly until the mixture forms a thick batter (you may need to add water during this process to get the consistency you want).
  3. Let the mixture cool and divide your hair into 3-4 sections, each secured with a clip. Apply the cooled mixture to your hair, starting at the roots and then spreading down to the ends.
  4. Once your hair is completely coated by the caramel treatment, cover it with a plastic hair cap and let it sit for 1-2 hours (or overnight for extra dry hair).
  5. Wash, condition, and style your hair as usual. You can freeze the extra mixture for future use. Your hair will love its soft, gorgeous makeover.
