Friday- Recipes for Your Hair

This Frankly Speaking Friday, I promised some recipes for hair, so here ya go! And check back on Monday for some others!

We will start with a pre-shampoo conditioner. This one has sage adn wheat germ, and is especially great for thinning and gray hair.

You will need 8 sage leaves that are crushed, 1/2 cup of boiling water, 1 Tbs. of wheat germ oil, and 1 Tbs. of grapeseed oil. Put the crushed leaves in a small jar and then cover with the boiling water. Set it aside for a half an hour, then strain and keep the liquid and toss the plant material. Add the wheat germ and grapeseed oils to the infused water, then pour it into a dark bottle. Rub a small quantity into your hair and scalp. It is better to do this when your head is damp. Wrap a towel around your head and leave it sit on it for 45 minutes to an hour, then shampoo as normal.

You can also just use molasses for a great hair treatment. All you need to do is to take 1/2 cup of molasses, honey or maple syrup and apply it directly to damp hair, making sure to massage into your scalp. Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap and leave it alone for 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and shampoo as normal. This is an easy treatment that will add shine and moisture to your hair! Just stay away from bees.
