Skinny Tips: Coconut Hair Mask DIY

Anyone else noticing these erratic weather changes? Out here in LA, it’s been hot one minute, cold the next. Changes in the weather can mean dry skin, redness, and dry hair! Now that it’s cooling down significantly, your hair might start to dry out a bit.  So when we came across this simple, easy, and inexpensive Coconut Hair Mask DIY we just had to pass it along! Join us in keeping our locks silky smooth through every weather change without breaking the bank!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 teaspoon honey (organic, if available)

Plastic squeeze bottle

shower cap or plastic grocery bag

 

Instructions:

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine coconut oil and honey. Microwave for 30-45 seconds, until coconut oil is liquid and mixture is warm. Stir together until well incorporated (there will still be some separation between the honey and oil). If desired, pour coconut oil mixture into a plastic squeeze bottle.

 

Over a sink, massage oil mixture into hair, starting at the ends and working up towards the scalp. After hair is evenly coated, wrap hair on top of your head and secure with a clip or hair tie, then cover with shower cap or plastic grocery bag. Let the mask sit on your hair for 10-15 minutes.

 

Thoroughly rinse out oil and shampoo as usual, taking extra care to wash out all remaining oil.
