SELF-LOVE: Coconut oil & Honey hair mask

Damaged hair. We’ve all been there 🤷🏼‍♀️. Blow dryers, products, and weather take a toll on our locks, so here’s a mask, which is perfect for repairing and moisturizing damaged hair 🤩

What you’ll need:
1 tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil 🥥
1 tbsp. Organic Raw Honey 🍯
Towel
Shower Cap (optional)

Step 1: Mix Ingredients Together
Mix the ingredients together and as an extra step to help your hair follicles open up, slightly heat the mixture up on a stovetop in a small sauce pan. Long or extra damaged hair? Just add a bit more of these ingredients.

Step 2: Apply to Hair
The mask can be applied to dry or wet hair, although we’ve found that it’s easier applied to wet hair. Have a towel around your neck to protect your clothes and section your hair off. Apply generously from top to bottom, focusing on the ends where most damage occurs.

Step 3: Relax for 30-40 Minutes While Mask Soaks In
Wrap your hair in a bun and let the mask soak in for 30-40 minutes. While you wait for the mask to do its magic, flip through a magazine, read a book, or paint your nails to pamper yourself some more.

Step 4: Rinse and Voila! 🤗
