This hair oil is great for giving your hair a boost and fighting the dandruff!

I play a lot of sport and sweat a lot which tends to dry out my skin and hair (it’s the salt I think) and this hair oil is a great way to combat this!

Bay leaves are an old natural dandruff remedy so this is a natural way to get your hair back to it’s best!


1 tbsp Coconut oilolive oil & Coconut oil
2 tsp Olive oil
2 fresh Bay Leaves (it’s an old dandruff remedy shh!)
1 Tsp Honey
1 tbsp Plain yoghurt


  1. Chop the fresh bay leaves and bruise with a rolling pin
  2. Melt the coconut oil to a liquid (if necessary – use a double boiler)
  3. Stir in the olive oil and the plain yoghurt – sometimes I have to whisk it sometimes stirring does the trick
  4. Mix in the bay
  5. Stir in the honey
  6. Massage the mixture into your scalp and down the lengths of your hair
  7. Leave in for 20 – 30 mins
  8. Rinse thoroughly making sure you have washed all of the leaves out of your hair
  9. Don’t worry if your hair still feels a bit oily (I tend to tie it up and leave it until my next hair wash – the day after or the next day ) Let the oils seep in and they should rinse out thoroughly when you next wash your hair.

If your hair still feels oily protect your pillowcase with a towel or old covering ( we don’t want to ruin a perfectly good pillowcase)

*Note: Only do this around once a month or you will over oil your hair and have the opposite problem of being too greasy (I know, I know we can’t win)*
