3 ingredients to improve diy recipes -
There are 3 ingredients I have been adding to my most recent hair oil mixes which have improved their feel and usability.  These ingredients are little extras which help to improve the feel and decrease the time it takes for the oil to absorb.
Cup of Tea
BTW, curlytea is now on MINDS too!
Herbal extracts can be made using 95%-100% commercial grade ethanol. Most home DIYers use a combo of water and glycerin. DIY herbal infusions are often made using oils heated with the herb/tea over time.

When I make infusions, I usually add the herb and the oil into a mason jar and add that jar into a pot of water. The mix is heated on low for 2 to 4 hours.
