Healthy hair is important to make you look as beautiful as possible. There are lots of different hair treatments that you can buy and apply to your hair. These all have different effects on your hair. Some will moisturize it, others will reduce frizz, and others will make it shiner. One of the most popular hair masks at the moment is the coconut oil and honey mask. This can be found in many stores, and you could also make if yourself.
What is a hair mask?
Hair masks are normally quite thick creamy solutions, which are applied directly to the hair. They are similar to a facemask and can be applied directly to the hair and rubbed in. They are then left on the hair for about 20 minutes to soak into the hair. After this the hair can be washed and rinsed to remove the mask.
Hair masks are designed to nourish your hair and can be repeated once a week if required. These moisturize your hair and make it look healthy and shiny.
Coconut Oil and Honey
Coconut oil has well known moisturizing properties. This will help your hair to lock in moisture. Honey has lots of different uses; it’s anti-bacterial and will make your hair lovely and shiny. The only problem with honey is that it can be quite sticky and messy. Make sure you apply this when you haven’t got anything else to do and wash your hands straight away.
Finding Coconut Oil Hair Masks
You will be able to find coconut oil and honey hair masks in many health and beauty stores. These are already mixed and blended to form the hair mask. This means that they are very easy to apply. It’s simply a matter of opening the pot and rubbing it onto your head.
Making your Own
If you can’t find the hair mask in a shop, then you can consider making it yourself. This is very easy and safe since it uses food grade ingredients. Finding coconut oil will be the most difficult step, and even that is fairly easy. Most supermarkets should have coconut oil with the baking ingredients.
Grab yourself a bowl and put two tablespoons of coconut oil inside. Then mix it with two tablespoons of honey. You can adjust the amount you mix accordingly depending on how long your hair is. Once this is mixed you should keep it refrigerated at all time. If you prepare it in advance then make sure you give it a mix before applying it to your hair.
Apply the mixture to your hair and massage it into your scalp, rub it through the entire length of your hair so that all of it is coated with the hair mask. Don’t worry that it’s sticky; it can be washed out soon. Once you have waited, you should then wash the hair mask out.
