Of course my mind started running rampant with ideas about how my hair would respond to topical application of an omega 3 oil fusion. Could my hair benefit from using these oils as a pre-poo treatment and even a deep conditioner booster? My immediate response was "sure, why not." We add all kinds of to our hair topically to receive benefits. From eggs and mayo to avocados, apple cider vinegar, relaxers, and even nutrients. Our hair definitely responds to what we put on it. If we see changes in our hair from consistently taking omega rich oils internally, why wouldn't it also respond well to omega 3 as an oil treatment?
Once I found a list of ingredients, it was on. I immediately went about the business of amassing the necessary oils.
-Avocado oil? Check!
-Flax Seed oil? Check!
-Hemp Seed oil? Check!
-Evening Primrose oil? Check!
-Pumpkin Seed oil? Check!
What I love about this list is that most (if not all) of them are not part of my normal regimen. In fact, many of those oils (with the exception of avocado + hemp) have never even touched my hair before. I love the diversity of this concoction. And, of course, I had to take it up a notch by adding a little vitamin E to to the mix. I did no measuring whatsoever, I just poured a little of each into a bowl and stirred using my Sprush. The mix was actually kinda thick. It saturated my hair weighing the strands down as I applied it. If I had to use one word to describe my mix, it would be nourishing. It felt so decadent like a high end salon treatment.
(due to the dark colors of the Flax, Pumpkin & Hemp oils, my blend turned out dark green)
The only thing I could do to make this blend even better would be to add the all mighty Omega 9 by way of macadamia nut oil. Then my fusion would be complete with Omega 3, 6, and 9! Should I also mention that hemp seed oil also contains the wonderful ceramides that protect our precious cuticle layer. If this wasn't amazing enough, I should also share that I picked up most of these oils in food grade quality so I can "double dip" by adding them to my smoothies for internal hair/skin benefits as well (I'm a freakin' genius!).
