I've had the worst hair ever in my life after spending stupid money bayalaging my hair (and the hairdresser didn't do the best job either - I wanted a gradient, but my hair looks like it's got massive regrowth instead). My hair was completely wrecked. It felt like hay, was extremely frizzy, and was so easily tangled. It also snapped really easily, especially trying to brush the tangles out. I've tried using my good ole' Kerastase Nectar Thermique, but even that couldn't save my hair (although it did help smoothen the frizz out until I washed my hair).
After hearing the magical wonders of coconut oil, I decided to give it a go. I was so amazed at how much my hair transformed, that I HAD to blog about it. I've used this recipe three times now, but I've made slight variations to the recipe each time, which I'll tell you as we go through the steps to making this amazing hair mask.
Step 1: Scoop out a tablespoon of Coconut Oil into a bowl.
iherb.com. (Use code CEW675 to get $10.00 off your first iHerb purchase).
Step 2 (optional): Microwave for 20 seconds.
Step 3: Squeeze in a dollop of honey and mix. I didn't quite measure how much honey I put in, but I think it'd be about half a tablespoon.
The second time I used this recipe, I also added a bit of coconut cream in. I don't think it made a difference in the end result, but feel free to give it a go if you like.
Step 4: Massage the mixture into your hair.
Step 5: Leave on for at least 45 minutes before washing off.
I did not have any trouble washing off the oil. In fact, there was practically nothing to wash off (especially the first time I used this mask - without microwaving), as it felt like my hair had completely absorbed the mixture.
This is such an amazing hair mask recipe that doesn't break the bank. It has left my hair feeling so much stronger, silkier, and less tangley! I can't imagine how amazing your hair will feel if you already have pretty healthy hair.
If you do try this hair mask out, please let me know how you go!
