Coconut + Honey Hair Mask

With summer right around the corner, all of that extra pool time means more chlorine and drier hair. Not to mention the regular wear and tear of highlights, styling with our hot tools and harshly brushing out those tangles. Get rid of frizziness and split ends with a little TLC for your hair and end up with soft and shiny locks… the natural way.

1-2 tbsp of Coconut Oil (or more depending on the length and thickness of your hair)
1-2 tbsp of Honey (also depending on your hair)
Shower Cap (optional)
(1) Start by mixing the room-temperature ingredients together in a bowl (the longer you mix, the warmer the ingredients will get, allowing them to combine more easily).
(2) Next, separate your hair into sections and apply the mixture as evenly as possible to dry hair from scalp to tip.
(3) Last, either tie up your hair with a pony tail holder or tuck away in the shower cap and leave on for a minimum of 30 minutes (longer for more nourishment and softer hair).
TO WASH OUT: We recommend lathering with shampoo BEFORE getting your hair wet (as oil and water tend to create separation and can make getting the mixture out of your hair more difficult). Finish with conditioner, towel dry and style as usual.
*Note: a little bit of oil may remain on the hair. While this is good for the hair and scalp, it may impact the desired look and leave an oily texture. To avoid this, you may need to shampoo twice or just apply from the midsection of hair to the ends. Otherwise, leave the oily texture for added nourishment and wear your hair up until you shower again the next day.
