DIY hair mask oil for longer thicker hair

Making this DIY hair mask couldn’t be simpler, and treating your hair with a mask can help strengthen your hair, and may even promote new growth. Invest in a good quality carrier oil, such as organic organ oil, or melt down some coconut oil, then add a few drops of aromatherapy oils and store away from sunlight until you are ready to use.

If you suffer from dandruff, try replacing the rosemary oil with 10 drops each of lemongrass oil and cedarwood oil. And if you’re concerned about hair loss, cedarwood oil and thyme oil are believed to help.
