DIY Hair Butter During Haze Time In Malaysia (for dry scalp)

Hi good morning guys. This week i decided to make it a hair care series week as its getting ‘hazy’ again in Malaysia: and with the constant air pollution we are getting; i feel that we should take care of our hair and scalp too besides our skin:)

Your hair is fragile, and takes effort and constant care to make it look and feel at its best. With our hot and humid weather, our hair can have a range of issues from being too oily to being too frizzy. 

Today’s recipe helps to keep your hair and scalp healthy. Its more suitable for dry scalp. In this recipe we add shea butter, coconut oil, and glycerin to a shea olive cream base. The glycerin works as a humectant that helps to hydrate the scalp. The cream base is rich in vitamin E and has great moisturizing qualities which keeps the scalp hydrated. It contains both shea butter and olive oil that acts as emollients. Shea butter is also a great anti inflammatory which reduces inflammation and redness of the scalp. So its great if you have itchy scalp too:)

Finally, we also added coconut oil as its a great moisturizer and has antibacterial properties. 

To add a flowery scent to your hair butter add magnolia chempaka fragrance oil. Enjoy!
