Ok loves, onto week 2 of our pampering journey! I hope everyone had a great week but it’s time to get a new week and month started!
This week I want it to be all about our hair and restoring it back to its original beauty. So let’s get this party started.
Last Sunday I colored my hair and then I gave myself a quick pampering treat by using the hair mask that came in my September Ipsy bag – Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! It’s a deep conditioning mask that is suppose to help dry, damaged, or chemically treated hair – all of which I have. After the treatment and while in bed I felt my hair and it did not feel good. You would have figured that after a deep conditioning mask your hair would feel soft and full of life, well mine did not. My hair felt like I dropped a gallon of cheap hair gel on my head! I was so scared that I would wake up with no hair and was freaking out! Well I kept my hair and it did feel pretty good the next day but why purchase something I could make at home that would only take me only a few minutes to make and didn’t scare the crap out of me. So duh , I decided to make a coconut oil and honey hair mask. It’s super easy to make and only has two ingredients!
All you need are the ingredients below:
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tbsp Honey
If you remember from our face mask honey is a humectante so it will lock in moisture. Coconut Oil will leave your hair silky smooth and add shine. Combine both items together and you will have a great hair day.
Combine both ingredients into a small saucepan and heat them up. Before applying to your hair let the mixture cool for a few minutes. It works easier if you apply the mask to wet hair but you can definitely apply this to your dry hair. Next, you want to section your hair into two pieces and apply a generous amount to your problem areas, in my case it’s my ends where I have the most damage. Once the mask is in your hair place it in a bun and then place a plastic shower cap, old t-shirt, or if you want to get real gansta a plastic bag over the bun and chill out for about 30 minutes. I know that sounds like a long time but while you are letting the magic happen you can paint your nails, read a book or a blog :), jump in the bath, or just lose yourself in your favorite show. Whatever it is let it be for yourself so you can unwind and relieve that stress!
Now that we have let the mask work its magic on our hair we can shower and use our normal shampoo and conditioner routine and boom! Your hair will be silky smooth and shiny!!!! You can use this mask once a week or if your hair is super damaged use it twice a week. If you wanted to opt out of the honey you can use the coconut oil on it’s own. You would warm up 1 – 2 tbsp and place it in your hair. Place your hair in a bun and repeat the same step of placing the plastic shower cap or old t-shirt on your head. Instead of waiting 30 minutes you would sleep with the hair mask and in your morning shower keep with your regular shampoo & conditioner routine, comb and style as usual. 🙂
These hair masks are a really quick & natural way to save your hair from yourself! 🙂
