Okra has a lot of health benefits and is great to use internally and externally. When used topically on the hair this can promote hair growth,it is also amazing for treating dry scalp and dandruff naturally. This as well serves as a natural conditioner and a leave on conditioner for the hair and you can use this as a hair mask as well.
Here is the video for reference:
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Step 1: I used 10 okra for my hair, but it really depends on how much you want to use.
Step 2: Cut the top and the bottom part of the Okra.
Step 3: Slice it in the middle and then put it in a pot and add 2 cups water.
Step 4: Let it boil & cook it for 30 minutes and mash it while cooking to let the mucilage come out.
Step 5: When you are done cooking it take it out and strain it to get the gel out from the Okra because that is the most important part of it.
Step 6: Let it cool & add in 3 tablespoons of Almond Oil and mix it all together.
Step 7: Store in a bottle container.
Step 8: You can apply it on your scalp if you are aiming this for hair growth, to cure dandruff & dry scalp and you can use this all over your hair if you want to use this as a conditioner. I’ll leave it on my scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it off using my shampoo and conditioner after.
- You can use this once or twice a week.
- Do not use if you are allergic to Okra.
- The smell is not pungent so this is probably one of my favorite hair masks to use on my hair.
