  3. Apply a quarter size amount to your hair.
  4. Lather, and wait 30 seconds before rinsing.


Overnight Conditioning Blend

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

5 drops carrot essential oil

3 drops sage essential oil

  1. Pour the spring water and apple cider vinegar into a dark colored glass bottle that closes tightly.
