How To Use Mango Butter To Revitalize Your Hair
Posted on January 24 2018
Mango has always been my favorite fruit growing up, and it’s the national fruit of the Philippines, my home country.
This extremely sweet fruit originates from South Asia. Aside from being delicious treats, mangoes, can also be used for skin care!
Mango butter is a great ingredient for nourishing your skin. Mango butter is derived from the fruit’s seed, which is cold-pressed to extract the butter. The butter is soft and doesn’t feel greasy. Although it hardens at room temperature, it melts as soon as it makes contact with skin. Since the butter is extracted from the seed and not the fruit itself, it only had a mild scent.
Use mango butter for dry and damaged hair.
First, melt the butter in a double boiler. Essentially, that means to place it in a container that is floating in a pot of boiling water- make sure to use a container that can withstand the boiling water! Then mix in the avocado oil, aloe vera gel, and lavender essential oil. Next, place this mixture in the refrigerator until it’s hard. After about 15 minutes, place the mixture into a blender and blend until you get a creamy texture.
You can use this mixture as a leave-in conditioner that will leave your hair feeling soft and revitalized. We also have 8 Natural Vegan Hair Mask Recipes that you can try out here!
