Today I am sharing with you an important stuff that is hair oil. I’ve been a fan of coconut oil for a really long time, can’t live without it. I love organic products a lot. Those products which are naturally made without using any chemical or preservative to store them.
My mom used to make coconut oil for me.Actually, the process of making oil from coconut is little cumbersome.Coconut oil is found in the coconut milk, which is extracted from the meat of the coconut. Extracting coconut oil at home is a simple process that can be done without any special equipment, but with a lot of energy.You need to follow some steps to it.
Extracting coconut oil from coconut:
Step1: Split open the coconut and collect the liquid in a container. Set aside the coconut water, you can also drink it.later on you need energy for step2.
Step2: Break the coconut into small chunks and remove the flesh from it.Grate the coconut meat using a food grater.
Step3: Put the grated coconut in warm water and extract the milk from it by using a cloth or by hands.separate the grated coconut and milk in two different places.
Step4: Now you can use the milk to remove oil from it.Use a saucepan to bring it to a boil and stirring constantly, until the water has evaporated and the cream has separated from the oil and turned brown.
Step5: Now slowly sperate the oil from the cream.allow the oil to cool down and keep it in a container.your oil is now ready to use.
Last year I had been to Kerala for holidays.I got some coconut oil from there.Nowadays I am using that oil as my hair oil.I am mixing coconut oil with some other oil, such as castor oil, olive oil and essential oil (rosemary oil).I have been using this oil for last six months and has seen a great change in my texture of my hair.
- Always try to use a good quality of castor oil.I am using PURE AND SURE ORGANIC CASTOR OIL which is an organic product cold press castor oil.
- If you don’t have time to make coconut oil, then prefer a good quality of oil from the market. I will suggest you go with PURE AND SURE ORGANIC COCONUT OIL. I think I am in love with this brand.
- FIGARO EXTRA VIRGIN OIL is best for olive oil, which is easily available in Indian market. You can find it in any grocery store or medicine store.
- I am using OLD TREE ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL.
