If you live in a colder climate, this DIY Hair & Body Butter can be a lifesaver. The cold, strong winds and/or constant hand washing can wreak havoc on our hair & skin. Try my recipe out. A little goes a long way. As always use what you have or can access. The measurements are approximate. Adjust the formula to your liking.
Check out the video here & please come back and share how your hair and/skin feels after a few weeks!
