Here is a simple Beauty DIY- Homemade Honey Coconut Hair Mask.
This homemade beauty recipe is super simple since it only requires two ingredients- Honey & Coconut Oil. Honey is a natural humectant and great moisturizer. Coconut oil can actually penetrate the hair to smooth the cuticle.
What You Need:
Honey (1 tablespoon)
Coconut Oil (I tablespoon)
This is not a beauty DIY that you will want to make ahead of time and store. You will just want to make a small batch as needed.
In a small microwave safe bowl, add one table spoon of coconut oil. Coconut oil is solid at room temp so you will need to microwave the oil for a few seconds. (I do 10 seconds.)
You don’t want the oil HOT, you just want it to liquify. (Please use caution and do not apply hot oil to your hair.)
Next, add a tablespoon of honey and stir.
Let me stop here and say, if you are in a hurry you will want to chose another time to do this mask. You will need time for the mask to penetrate into your hair and you will need to wash you hair several times or your hair will be greasy.
Some folks apply the mask for top to bottom, but unless my hair is just really having issues I like to just do the ends. Once you have applied the oil, arrange your hair on your head in a twist and wait for 30 minutes. You can wear a shower cap to keep the moisture in; however, I never do this.
Shampoo and condition your hair as you usually do; however, you will need to shampoo your hair at least 2-3 or more times to get the coconut oil out of your hair. Style your hair as usual. Personally, I can see and feel the difference for up to a few days after treatment.
