Are you dealing with dry, brittle, lifeless hair this winter? Freezing temperatures paired with excessive indoor heating will leave your hair crying out for help. Luckily, this easy DIY hair mask is here to save the day! With only a few ingredients that are effective, affordable, and all-natural, this coconut honey mask is exactly what your hair care routine has been searching for.
Coconut Honey Hair Mask
- 2 parts coconut oil
- 2 parts honey
- 1 part apple cider vinegar
Mix all ingredients together in a microwave-safe jar. The mask will naturally separate in the jar, and will need to be remelted and stirred before each use. The amount you make is up to you – a little, a lot, or enough to share!
To use: Apply a generous amount of mask to your hair, saturating fully roots to tips. Let sit for up to 30 minutes; wash, and rinse as usual.
Why is this hair mask so effective? Let’s talk about the benefits:
The benefits of coconut oil are seemingly never-ending, including but not limited to skin care, hair care, improved digestion, dental care, and improved immunity against a wide variety of infections and diseases. When it comes to your hair, coconut oil seals in moisture, contains antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help control dandruff, and contains nutrients such as vitamin E, vitamin K, and iron.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is another multi-purpose healing ingredient. It can balance the pH of your hair, remove buildup from styling products and shampoos, and leave your hair shiny and smooth.
Honey helps maintain the moisture in your hair (thanks to its high sugar content). It also has antibacterial properties for a healthy scalp and dandruff relief, and can bring new life to your hair’s natural highlights.
