Recipe Card - Blackberry Sage Tea Creamy Leave-in Conditioner

  1. Add ¾ cup of VO5’s Tea Therapy Blackberry Sage Tea Revitalizing Conditioner to a 16 oz. flip-top container.
    • This conditioner contains vitamins b3, b5, c, e, and h.
    • It has blackberry and sage extracts that provide each strand with energy, volume, and balance.
    • It is also supposed to energize limp hair and protect hair from UV rays
  2. Add ½ cup of distilled (not tap) water.
  3. Add ¼ cup of aloe vera juice.
    • Aloe vera juice relieves itchy, dry scalps and acts as a conditioning agent that reduces frizz.
    • I buy the Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Juice. It comes in a large 1 gallon jug and has a shelf life of about 2 years (when stored properly in the fridge).
  4. Add 2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil.
    • Olive oil is one of the few oils that can actually penetrate the hair shaft. This makes it a great choice for imparting strength, shine, and smoothing the hair’s cuticle.
    • I usually buy the Kirkland brand olive oil from Costco or Amazon.
  5. Add 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin.
    • Glycerin is a natural humectant. It helps to attract and retain moisture to your hair’s follicles.
    • I adore the 100% pure version from NOW Solutions. It never fails to soften and moisturize my parched tresses!
  6. Add ½ teaspoon of vitamin e oil.
    • Vitamin e oil has anti-aging properties that prevent damaging effects from the environment (e.g., free radicals).
    • This nutrient-rich oil heals and repairs skin and hair.
    • It also acts as a natural preservative to keep the spritz fresh by extending the shelf life.
    • I prefer to buy Sundown Naturals’ vitamin e oil.
  7. Add 15–20 drops of essential oil.
  8. Add top, and shake vigorously to incorporate all ingredients. Enjoy!

I like to use a funnel. I bought a set that came in multiple sizes. It has proven to be a must for me when I make my own DIY hair and skincare products! While it’s not absolutely necessary, it does make the process (for me) much more stress- and mess-free!
