Coconut Oil Hair Mask

We all need a little TLC when it comes to our bodies. It is so wonderful to focus and pay attention to how we can care for our bodies. One way I love to care for my hair is with a coconut oil mask. I try to do it at least 2x a month but you could do as as much as you like.

I use about 1/4 cup oil + rosemary and lavender oil (about 5-10) drops of each

Massage oil into your scalp and work towards ends

Twist hair into a high bun and rock your oil mask look! I try to wear my mask overnight, but a minimum of 30 min would be great! If you sleep with it in, then get a turbie twist hair towel so that your sheets do not get oily.

When ready to wash out, get water warm and rinse hair well, then shampoo. Sometimes I have to shampoo it twice and if your hair does not let go of the oil, then apply an egg wash to your hair. (1 egg mixed and then scrubbed into hair) (that in itself is also a great hair mask!)

Then enjoy your well treated hair!!!

Benefits of Coconut Oil Mask

Coconut oil is the richest natural source of medium chain fatty acids, special types of fatty acid with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that are very nourishing to the body. Coconut oil’s structure allows it to penetrate hair in ways that other oils are not able to, which is why some people notice amazing results relatively quickly when using coconut oil for hair. It conditions, strengthens, promotes hair growth and makes your hair all kinds of wonderful!

Take time to care for your locks and try a coconut mask!
