The Art of Blending


It’s February, and by the time you are reading this the groundhog has already rendered its verdict as to whether or not we will be plagued with six more weeks of winter. No matter what the forecast turns out to be, Naturalistas everywhere know this is the perfect time to start getting ready for spring. Pretty soon, those winter hats will return to the closet, drawers or wherever they are kept and women will begin rocking the scene with fresh, shiny and beautiful curls, coils and twists.

But, wait! Something happened over the winter months. Maybe it came about because women were wearing those hair-grabbing wool winter hats… (Most women know that wearing wool caps directly on their hair is a no-no, but sometimes that frigid winter air makes a woman throw all caution to the wind.) Whatever the reason, the results can often be dry, frizzy or thinning hair that’s going to require some magic if she wants her hair to look its best in time for spring.

February is the best time for a woman to make some magic happen, so that spring will find her natural style looking its awesome best.

Blending oils is the absolute best DIY solution for making hair fabulous in time for spring. All it takes to master the art of blending oils is (1) having the right kinds of oil and (2) knowing which oil does what.

It’s best to use a family of oils made with natural ingredients, like My DNA Jamaican Black Castor Oils. Each oil is great by itself, and even better when they’re blended with each other for maximum results.

For instance, My DNA Jamaican Black Castor Oil Coconut Oil improves scalp health, supports hair growth and adds volume and shine. That’s a great start, but her scalp might have been neglected during the winter months, which is a good reason to mix the Coconut Oil with My DNA Jamaican Black Castor Oil Peppermint Oil. The Peppermint Oil stimulates the scalp (you can actually feel the tingle!) and it keeps the dandruff away. More importantly, it rejuvenates those neglected hair follicles and increases blood flow and healthy blood circulation.

For dry, itchy scalp and blocked hair follicles, My DNA Jamaican Black Castor Oil Tea Tree Oil, blended with either the Coconut Oil or the Peppermint Oil gives fantastic results. Its natural antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral and anti-infection properties help hair get healthy and stay healthy.

My DNA Jamaican Black Castor Oil Mango/Papaya promotes hair growth, prevents hair loss, and is rich in nutrients to help boost hair strength and growth. Blend it with Coconut Oil and a little bit of Peppermint Oil, and she’s on the way to having strong, thick, shiny hair in time for spring.

Stress is one of the number one reasons for hair loss and breakage, and that brings me to My DNA Life Natural Lavender Oil. Its natural aromatherapy properties make it a great stress reducer, plus it nourishes hair, moisturizes scalp and strands, helps prevent shedding and improves blood circulation on the scalp. Add a few drops of lavender oil to any other oil, such as Coconut Oil, for a powerful blend.
