Put 1-2 drops of tea tree oil and generous dollop of aloe vera gel in spray bottle with water (filtered is best).
Section off hair and secure however you like. I just made small loose buns...no bobby pins or accessories required
Another angle of cinnabuns
Spray one section with water mix until moderately wet. It does not need to be dripping .
Pour olive oil (coconut is also great) into palm of your hand and apply (smooth through) to damp hair from TIP to ROOT
Gently rub through paying special attention to ends. Apply more oil if desired.
Twist, bun, or otherwise gather oiled hair
Repeat on other sections until whole head is complete
Alternate ending- French braid, cornrow, or two-strand twist hair. This makes sense if you choose not to wash oil out of your hair (which is great for naturally curly hair).

Cover head with plastic cap. You can respray your hair a bit. If you don't have a plastic cap you can use Saran Wrap or plain ole plastic grocery bags
Cover with bonnet or even a warm winter cap to add heat to the conditioning process
Rub excess oil on hands, feet, knees, and elbows!
Let sit for an hour, an afternoon, or overnight. You can wash out the hair or unfurl your hair and wear as is (braid out, twist out, or make a fun up do). Enjoy your naturally conditioned hair 👄
