BLEND YOUR OWN GLOW + GROW HAIR TREATMENT

BLEND YOUR OWN GLOW + GROW HAIR TREATMENT

Problem: Frizzy, dry hair. Locks that scream for attention.

Need: Argan oil, The Buff ‘Beauty Booster’ in Grapefruit, (available exclusively at Urban Outfitters, $12). One 15ml/ 5 oz glass vials (try Etsy).

There are three ways to use a hair oil. Rub one or two drops between your palms and rub sparingly on the mids and ends of wet hair before heat styling to protect and add gloss (trust us, you’ve never seen hair so shiny). Or, follow the same process on dry, styled hair for more super-charged shine and to control frizz

There’s another way to use your hair oil too: As a scalp treatment. Apply about 7-8 drops all over your scalp, and massage it in using circular motions. Use a comb to brush the oil through your hair, then hold off washing your hair until the following morning. Leaving it on overnight will give hair time to soak up all the good-for-you ingredients while boosting circulation to the scalp for healthy hair growth.

Now you know how to use it, here’s how to make it:

Step one: Fill ¾ of your 15ml vial with argan oil. This lightweight, fast-absorbing oil will a deliver shampoo commercial-worthy sheen.

Step two: Add two drops of grapefruit oil. (Doesn’t it smell good?!)
