When the temperatures drop and the indoor heat kicks on, your hair may start to freak out. Good news: you can repair it naturally at home. Whip up this homemade mask and your tresses will be well on their way to better health.
1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey (you can use raw organic if you want to make the entire mask organic)
At room temperature, coconut oil is solid, so warm it in the microwave until it’s softened (about 15-20 seconds). Then add the honey and mix together until ingredients are incorporated. It will look like this:
Apply the mask to wet hair, concentrating on the ends, where most damage occurs. (If there are still some solid bits of coconut oil in the mask, just work them into your hair.) Wrap your hair up in a bun and place a shower cap over it. Let the mask sit for 30 minutes, then wash rinse in the shower and follow with your normal shampoo and conditioner. When you blowdry, you’ll see instant shine. Apply the mask once a week and your hair will be softer, shinier, and look healthier over time.
One thing to note: coconut oil can make tubs and floors very slippery! It will drip, even with a showercap on, so be careful. I also noticed that if you take a bath while the mask is absorbing, some of the oil will make its way into the tub, giving your skin a hydrating treat.
