Coconut + Honey Hair Mask // Clean Living

If you're anything like me, once the summer heat hits all I want to do is be by a pool, lake, ocean, etc. And as wonderful as that might sound, all that chlorine and sun isn't going to be very kind to my hair. So to remind my hair that I haven't forgotten about it, I'm going to start using a mask every two weeks to give it a shiny, silky, healthy glow. This is a natural, refreshing recipe to give your hair a youthful glow during the dry summer months. 

Ingredients:

2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
5-8 drops of essential oil 

Simply combine all of the ingredients together in a small container. If the coconut oil isn't mixing well, heat it over a stove until it becomes a softer texture. To use, apply it to your hair evenly. Once you've applied it throughout, wrap it in a loose top knot on your head and let it soak for 30-45 minutes. Then, shampoo twice, and let it air dry. Your hair will say a big THANK YOU! for its healthy new look!

  5. Is it possible to double or triple this recipe and then store it for multiple uses? Or do you just mix it as needed? The little tin in the picture is so cute, it seems like it would be a fun way to store it. :)

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      I suggest making a new batch every time you want to use it so that it's fresh. Luckily it took me less than 5 minutes to make (seriously!) so making a new batch each time isn't too time consuming. :)

  9. I have a random question: where do you buy those cute little containers you picture to store stuff like this in? WHile I have a load of large ball mason jars, I have nothing like that to mix and save things in. Thanks in advance.

  11. I love using home remedies for my hair, it's super curly and frizzy. I also tend to splurge on good quality products like pro naturals moroccan argan oil hair mask, at least I know they work :)
