All ingredients must be carefully blended with each other. Then, apply the mix on your hair and leave it on for about 30 minutes. You will obtain even better results if you heat it up. You might wrap your head in a previously warmed up towel or simply use a blow-dryer. In this case use hot air to improve the effects of natural ingredients.
After the desired period of time, wash the blend off. Moreover, if your hair is in a really bad condition, you might apply a drop of jojoba oil on the ends, after washing and drying.
