  • Chamomile tea
  • Lemon juice
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Mayonnaise
  • Greek yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Castor oil
  • Lavender oil


  1. Mix 2 tbsp of cinnamon with 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice.
  2. Let sit for 20 minutes. During the 20 minutes, boil your tea. You'll only need about 2 tbsp, I just drank the remains.
  3. Pour the 2 tbsp of tea in the cinnamon mixture, add 4 tbsp of honey. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Mix your oils and place them in a separate container in the microwave for 45 seconds. 
  5. Beat the eggs, yogurt and mayo together. 
  6. Wait 10 minutes and mix everything together. 
  7. Apply to damp, clean hair. Leave in for an hour or longer (I suggest the whole night). 
  8. Style as desired.
