Now that the summer is winding down it is the perfect time to take care of your hair after beach-bumming these past few months. Hot temps and hot tools can make your hair dry, unruly, and just plain frizzy. Get your hair in tip-top shape with this super easy hair mask. The best part? The two ingredients might already be in your kitchen.
What You’ll Need
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Olive Oil: Its antioxidant and vitamins A and E benefits will hydrate the driest hair.
Coconut Oil: Its rich fatty-acids will help moisturize hair and scalp.
Like any hair mask this works best when your hair is tangle-free so that it is easy to run your fingers through. This is definitely important if your hair is super curly and thick like mine. Applying the mask on wet hair also works best.
Mix one tablespoon of both olive oil and coconut oil. Section your hair into four parts and gently scoop some of the mixture onto your hands. Rubbing the oils on your hands apply it to each section scooping up more when needed. Focus application on the ends of your hair working your way up to your roots.
After you’re done, gather your hair into a high bun and leave the mask on for 45 minutes. If you want serious moisture you can also leave it on overnight — just make sure to protect your pillows with a towel. After time is up, shampoo, condition, and style your hair like you normally would. That’s it! See, so easy! Now say hello to frizz-free hair.
