Coconut Oil Hair Mask

So, what do girls do on a Saturday night when bored? A coconut hair mask - duh. Probably not really, but I did. I am addicted to Pinterest, and I see so many things that you can do with coconut oil. Not only can you cook with it, but there are a lot of beauty tricks too. Coconut oil can help maintain your lush locks, and help with the growth of your hair.

You will need the following:

  1. two tablespoons coconut oil (depending on how long your hair is you might need less)
  2. shower cap
  3. wide tooth comb 
  4. bowl
  5. patience 
The process:
  1. Heat the coconut oil in the microwave - with the amount I used I started at 10 seconds, and then checked to see the consistency. Since it wasn't in liquid form, I heated the oil for another ten seconds.
  2. Apply the oil to your hair - I started from the ends and worked my way to my scalp.
  3. Once your hair is fully coated, comb your hair to make sure you covered all of your hair.
  4. Cover your hair with the shower cap, and relax.
  5. Let the hair mask stay on overnight.
  6. Wash your hair the next morning with a good quality shampoo and conditioner. I used Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner.
My hair was really soft after doing the mask, but it was still kind of oily after I washed it. I haven't applied any heat to my hair since doing the mask on Saturday night, and have only washed it twice since then. It's now Wednesday. I would definitely recommend doing this, but make sure you don't have major plans over the weekend. Trying this again next month! 

xoxo, p&c
