Part 2: Berries
Dandruff Fighter: This one is great for those overripe strawberries you forgot about in the fridge! Mash 2 ripe strawberries and mix with 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tbsp of honey. Apply the mixture to your scalp and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing with cool water. This recipe also helps with fungal growth on the scalp due to the inhibiting properties of the magnesium, copper, and other organic compounds found in strawberries.
Compound Butter: This recipe can work for any overripe berries. Simply take 2 sticks of softened butter and add mashed overripe berries, blending until evenly distributed. In no time flat, you have a spread! Store in the fridge, or place on parchment paper, shape into a log, and freeze for later use.
