diy coconut oil hair mask

In my world, coconut oil cures all. I use it on dry skin, cold sores, chapped lips, for washing my face, for baking, in coffee, and more. You've probably heard of these uses, but I have one more up my sleeve: coconut oil hair mask. I posted a tutorial on my Instagram stories a while ago and I've been getting a ton of messages since then asking how I did it. So, I thought I'd post a recap here! It's extremely simple and cost effective unlike most hair masks on the market. Plus, it's a 100% natural way to refresh dull and brittle hair.

THE BENEFITS
When I do a coconut oil mask, I've noticed that my hair...
-dries really quickly
-has more bounce
-has 0 frizz
-is soooo soft
...and the mask helps condition your scalp and strengthen your hair!

THE SUPPLIES
-coconut oil
-a hair tie or scrunchie
(that's it!)

THE METHOD
1. Warm about 1 tablespoon of oil at a time with your hands. Start by massaging it into your scalp, then work it to the ends of your hair. Get more oil as necessary, I usually use about 2.5 tablespoons for my medium-length hair. You shouldn't be dripping in coconut oil, but your hair should be pretty saturated.
2. Fasten your hair into a high bun. If you have short hair, you can do a low bun and use bobbi pins to keep it off your neck. I usually use a scrunchie for this because they're more comfy!
3. Wait as close to 24 hours as possible. I usually do it for more like 12. I'll put the coconut oil in on a Sunday and wash it out Monday morning!
4. The wash out: This step is really important, because if you aren't careful enough your hair will just end up greasy. Use your typical shampoo, but really scrub your scalp. You can even shampoo twice if necessary. Condition as normal.
5. Towel or blow dry and you're done! Enjoy your silky locks :-)
