The Essential Oil Secret to Air Drying Your Hair
What’s the secret to effortless locks, the likes of which the Olsen twins, Penelope Cruz and Kate Moss have caught onto? Air-drying hair. It’s the new blowout and it doesn’t take up half of your morning. Just hop out of the shower or rinse your hair, give it a quick brush, apply some serum and voila! The summer waves you may have longed for are easier to achieve than you think and can be created sans hot styling tools that can damage your hair.
A natural, nourishing, hair styling serum can also take your new air drying hair routine to the next level. Enter the Edens Garden experts with this simply formulated DIY coconut serum. This coconut serum includes haircare favorites like Coconut and Argan oil, as well as Cyclomethicone. Cyclomethicone is a wonder ingredient and is found in high-end hair serums such as Moroccanoil Treatment Original. It evaporates quickly, leaving hair shiny and beautiful without leaving build-up. If you want extra shine, moisturized hair and zero split ends, then you’ll want to make this serum.
What you need
Yield: 3 oz of serum
1 Tbsp Coconut oil
1 Tbsp Argan oil
2 oz Cyclomethicone
8 drops Geranium
6 drops Grapefruit
4 drops Rosemary
Thoroughly stir ingredients together and add to a spray or pump bottle. When hair is wet, comb once and blot hair moderately dry. Don’t rub hair dry, as this can be damaging, and don’t towel dry to prevent over-drying hair. When hair is still wet, comb serum through your hair once or twice, using your fingers. Let air dry as you go about your day, and enjoy effortless tresses.
