Little Lune - Herbal Hair Oil
Our nutrient-dense herbal hair oil has been strategically formulated to give you luscious, long, happy hair that shines with health and vitality. Using key hair-loving herbs and a nourishing avocado oil base, this delightfully rich concoction works to stimulate and moisturise the scalp and hair follicles to promote thicker, longer hair, reduce dandruff and enhance shine and softness.
How to use: Read on below to supercharge your mermaid hair factor with our hair ritual instructions, or simply massage a good dollop of oil (gently warmed, if possible) into your scalp, hair shaft and ends at least 1 hour before washing thoroughly with shampoo.
INGREDIENTS: Organic avocado oil, nettle, rosemary, peppermint.
HERBAL HAIR RITUAL
To treat both scalp and hair shaft, dose 1/2 - 1 tablespoon or more (depending on hair length) into your smallest saucepan or heatproof bowl. Gently heat the oil on a stovetop until the oil is warmed through, but not scalding hot.
Begin to massage little drips of oil all over your scalp and along the hairline, parting hair into sections if necessary. Massaging the warm oil into your scalp further aids scalp stimulation, allowing the herbs to really work their magic. It’s also a divine act of loving self-care that feels oh-so-good (plus you deserve the pampering).
As you work, run fingers through your hair to distribute the oil down the hair shaft. Save some oil to generously rub into your hair ends. Finally, using a brush, comb your entire head to further distribute the oil to each strand of hair.
For the most delicious results, leave oil in overnight, laying a towel over your pillowcase, or wrap hair in a turban. Now is the time to also prepare your floral hair rinse using our Flower Power ritual (see below for more info).
Wash hair thoroughly from scalp to tip with shampoo. If you applied liberal amounts of oil, you may need to shampoo hair twice to fully remove any residue. As a final rinse, pour your brewed Flower Powerrinse over entire head and hair — there’s no need to wash this out! Let your scalp and hair drink in this beautiful concoction for added softness, shine and to leave a delicate scent of flowers wherever you walk!
PREPARING OUR FLORAL HAIR RINSE
The best time to brew our Flower Power hair rinse is after oiling your hair so it can infuse overnight for full strength and richness. If short on time, allow the brew to sit for at least 30 minutes.
Simply boil 500ml of water, take off the heat and add in your desired amount of Flower Power petals (a nice healthy tablespoon of petals will do if you are unsure). Cover your pot or jug immediately with a lid so the precious volatile oils do not escape with the steam. Allow the brew to infuse overnight. Once the brew has cooled, you might like to add in your Flower Power rose quartz to infuse the rinse with the loving and heart chakra-opening vibrations of beautiful rose quartz!
In the morning before washing your hair, strain the liquid to remove the petals and rose quartz (the petals can be scattered in your garden or added to your compost bin). To further clarify and condition your hair, add in a shot of apple cider vinegar — though if you don’t have any on hand, it’s okay to leave this out.
And voilà, your holy hair ritual is now complete! Now all there is left to do is bask in the beauty of your deeply nourished and happy mermaid hair. We hope you love this hair ritual as much as we do!
