Homemade Hair Mask: Coconut Oil + Honey

If you’ve gone a little overboard with your curling wand lately, don’t stress out. We’ve got you covered with an all-natural way to get your hair to behave again. Not only do we love this because it will give your hair a break from harsh chemicals found in other hair masks, but it is super easy to make and only contains two ingredients. Pretty simple, right?

 

What You’ll Need

 

1-2 tablespoons organic coconut oil

1-2 tablespoons organic honey

Mixing bowl and spoon 

 

Start with equal parts organic honey and organic coconut oil. We like to start with 1-2 tablespoons of each, but depending on how long or dry your hair is, you can always add more. Put the honey and the coconut oil in a bowl together and warm either in a pot or in the microwave until they can easily be mixed together. 

 

 

Now it's time to apply, sit down and relax!

 

Once cool, apply to dry or wet hair and leave on for as long as you please. We love using this as an excuse to apply and then do chores, get a quick workout in, or just sit down and read a good book. Once you’re ready to shower, hop on in and shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would. If you have some more spare time, whip up our homemade coconut oil body butter next, or apply some leftover coconut oil to your eyes for longer eyelashes!

 

Your shiny, smooth and sleek hair will thank you. You can thank us later!

 

Quick Tip:

 

If you’re one to walk on the wild side, use one of our cool mint sachets in place of regular coconut oil for delicious peppermint smelling hair.
