Hair Mask DIY | 7 Recipes You Need to Try
1. Coconut Oil
This is the simplest DIY hair mask there is. There’s just one ingredient: coconut oil.
All you need for this is about a quarter of a cup of warmed coconut oil (it needs to be in its liquid state.) Simply apply it to your hair (wet or dry) and leave it in for at least an hour. You can either be in the bathtub while you let the coconut oil soak in or out and about in a towel. If you’re going to continue going about your chores or even keep this treatment on overnight, make sure you take the necessary precautions, like a shower cap. Coconut oil will stain clothing and linens.
When you’re finished with your treatment, wash the coconut oil out of your hair and enjoy the DIY shine!
Warning: coconut oil makes showers slippery, so be prepared to clean it up immediately. (Idea via diynatural.com)
