2.5 oz. shea butter
1 oz. avocado oil
.25 oz. coconut oil
.25 oz. jojoba oil
.25 oz. argan oil
several drops of lavender essential oil
several drops of rosemary essential oil
several drops of geranium essential oil
Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the shea butter into a small to medium sized glass pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.)
Once melted, weigh out the avocado, coconut, jojoba and argan oils and stir into the shea butter.
Finally, add several drops each of lavender, rosemary and geranium essential oil and stir thoroughly.
These essential oils are suitable for both dry and normal hair types. If you generally have normal hair, you can also experiment with lemon, cedarwood, thyme and clary sage essential oils.
Once you’ve combined all of your ingredients, pour into a 4 oz. container of your choice and allow to cool completely. You can place your hair mask in the refrigerator to speed up this process if desired.
How to Use Your Hair Mask
To use, simply apply enough of this natural hair mask to cover all of your tresses then comb through. Leave on for ten minutes to overnight, then wash and condition your hair as usual. Use as often as needed depending on your hair type to keep it shiny and moisturized. Alternately, you can also substitute this product for your regular conditioner – just use less! – and apply after shampooing, then rinse.
For extra dry or frizzy hair, apply a small amount – a little goes a long way! – to clean hair before styling to tame frizz and add shine.

Thanks so much for the recipes. The hair mask works wonders and I have very coarse curly hair that tends to frizz easy.

The shelf life will always be the same as the ingredient with the shortest shelf life. This will depend on where you purchase your ingredients and how long you’ve had them on hand.
