Bulgarian rose hair mousse

2 tablespoons coconut oil (I like to use virgin coconut oil)
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
1/16 teaspoon Bulgarian rose concrete

Blending Procedure:
Make sure all ingredients are room temperature. The coconut oil should NOT be cold because you do not want to have to heat this mixture up. It should not be a liquid consistency when you use it. Instead, it should be rich and thick. Measure the coconut oil into a bowl and stir well. The heat from your mixing will raise the temperature of the oil so that it obtains a smooth, thick texture.
Add the jojoba oil and stir more to make sure the mixture is even and well mixed.
Add the concrete last. You don't have to use Bulgarian rose, that's just my favorite. You can use the rose concrete from Morocco, Turkey or wherever you get it from.
Stir all of the ingredients together to form a thick, rich oily mixture. To use, apply to dry hair from roots to ends paying special attention to the dry areas. To facilitate penetration of the oil, you can do one of two things. First, you can cover your hair with a plastic bag or hair bonnet and sit under a dryer for 30 minutes, then wash and condition as usual. Second, you can cover your ahir with a plastic bag or hair bonnet and then use a blow dryer to saturate your hair with the heat which will help the oils penetrate. Then, wash and condition as usual.
This mixture will leave your hair shiny, and use over time will improve its condition. It has made a big difference in the way my hair looks and feels.
