Method: Blend half a cup of spinach until you get a smooth paste.

Use a cheesecloth to separate the pulp from the juice. Mix the pulp with your choice of carrier oil. If you have oily hair, use a light oil like jojoba or olive oil. For dry hair, use coconut or castor oil.

Massage the oil into your scalp for 15 minutes and then work it through the whole length of your hair.

Leave the oil on for an additional 45 minutes. Wash out the spinach oil with cool/lukewarm water and a mild sulfate-free shampoo.
