Without any delay here I present you with the best remedy to treat all your hair problems – The Hibiscus Hair Oil
Things you will need
Hibiscus Fresh Flowers: 8 or more

Almond Oil: 2 tsp
Method For Making Hibiscus and Coconut Oil
Take hibiscus flowers and separate the petals. Wash them very gently and air dry them for couple of minutes.
Take a bowl and add Coconut Oil and Almond oil. Now heat it a bit using Double Boiler or Indirect Heat Method.
Now add the warm oil to the hibiscus petals and keep it aside.
Let this oil rest for minimum 3 to 4 hours (preferably overnight) until the flower petals becomes transparent. Try to keep this oil in sunlight for better results.
For keeping any oil in sunlight always place a wooden log or even a small wooden piece. This would keep the nutrients intact and also enhance them.
After the petals become transparent, strain it with a muslin cloth so that no tiny petal particles remain. Otherwise these particles just stick to your hair and you might spend a lot of time trying to remove it.
Pat your shoulder because you made a really wonderful hair oil which your hair will fall in love with.
The best part of the oil is that it smells divine.
Use this hair oil within 2 weeks. And these two weeks, store it in a mason jar away from direct sunlight.
- Apply the oil by parting smaller sections and slowly massaging the oil with your finger tips.
- Keep the oil on your hair overnight for best results.
- You can experiment with different hair oils according to your hair type.
