DIY Hair Mask: For Dry, Damaged Hair

Posted on

I prefer using natural, homemade beauty products, and while browsing Facebook I found this DIY hair mask. Coconut oil and honey are used in most of my skin and hair care regimens, so I had all three ingredients on hand. The coconut cream pictured is in its solid state, but melted oil works best for mixing.

I tripled the original recipe to saturate my short, thick, kicky mane completely. I later realized starting with dampened hair would probably require much less. After applying the mask I immediately saw and felt the difference. My scalp felt extremely moisturized, and my natural curls looked amazing. I placed a shower cap over my head for about an hour; passing the time by pampering my legs and feet with a homemade sugar scrub!

Rinsing your hair with cool water is the best option, however, lukewarm still works for me. I followed by washing and conditioning with sulfate free store products (eventually I want to use homemade shampoo and conditioner as well). I moisturized my hair with pure coconut oil and proceeded to let it air dry over night (for curly or kinky hair, it’s best to sleep under a silk hair scarf or on silk pillow cases). The next morning I was so impressed with how soft and manageable my hair was! I could not stop touching it. For continued results I plan on using this hair mask once a week!

Recently, Facebook users were asked to share pictures of their “Tasty” inspired recipes. I immediately posted two photos, and was surprised by all the positive feedback I received. #ThanksTasty for the motivation to continue sharing my cooking and DIY ventures!

This cheesy mixture of spinach and artichoke hearts was the perfect way to introduce my children to new vegetables. I suggest to finely chop the artichoke hearts if you have picky eaters. Any dish that requires just one pot, will always be a favorite in my book; the less dishes to clean the better! I recommend cast iron cookware, which can be used on the stove top and in the oven.
