Coconut Oil & Honey Hair Mask For Dry Hair

Zelo Blog, hair mask for dry hairWe all go through that phase in our lives when we’ve experimented so much with our hair that we suddenly find our beautiful  tresses becoming dull and dry. If your hair needs a serious pick me up, a home-made coconut oil and honey hair mask can do the trick. This mask is perfect to provide great nourishment and some serious hydration to dry and damaged hair.

What You’ll Need:

  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Organic Raw Honey
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Towel

For the coconut oil and raw honey you’ll want to use equal parts of each. For example, you can start with 1 tbsp. of coconut oil and 1 tbsp. of honey, mix it together in the bowl with the spoon. For longer hair, you may find that you need just a little more of each, or maybe less all together for shorter hair.

Before you start, you’ll want to place the towel around your neck to keep the mask from getting all over your clothes. Take the mask and apply to sections of your hair from top to bottom using your hands. Be sure to generously and evenly cover your hair with the mask. When done, simply clip your hair up and let the mask process for 30 to 40 minutes.

Note: You can apply the mask to wet or dry hair. Applying the mask to wet hair is highly recommended as it’ll be much easier.

Finally, wash your hair as usual with shampoo and conditioner and done.  Enjoy your hydrated, revived tresses!

Allergy Precautions:

Before trying any home-made remedy, it is always good practice to take a small amount of the ingredients you are going to use and test them on a small patch of skin for a few minutes. If the area turns red and itchy or you feel any type of discomfort it’ll be best to avoid using those ingredients, try an alternative remedy instead.  If no reaction occurs, then it is probably safe to use for your skin.
