Coconut Oil & Honey Hair Conditioning

Posted in Health, Healthy Habits, Healthy Living at 10:41 PM by lanaholt

Coconut oil is great for your skin and all hair types. It softens hair, helps it to shine and adds essential proteins which helps to repair damaged hair. Coconut oil can also help relieve dandruff, psoriasis, and dermatitis. An added bonus is that lauric acid in coconut oil has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It’s just plain great stuff.

When I recently came back from Vegas my hair was so dry and brittle I thought it was going to fall out. So, I tried a coconut oil and honey conditioning hair mask. It was wonderful. My hair came out very soft.

What you will need:

1/2 cup coconut oil (depends on hair thickness and length, so play with this)
2 Tbs Honey (depends on hair thickness and length, so play with this)
Gloves (optional)
1-2 inch painters brush or basting brush (optional)
Old t-shirt (suggested)
Plastic wrap or shower cap

Directions:

Mix the coconut oil and honey. You can just stir it with the brush, your fingers or blend it in a blender. It’s gonna get messy, so don’t be afraid to dig in. Then apply all over your hair root to tip either with your fingers or the brush. You may find it easier to separate out strands and do it in small patches. When you have applied all over your hair, put your hair up any way you choose. Wrap with plastic wrap or a shower cap. Leave on for a minimum of 1 hour. If the oil leaks and drips down your neck, enjoy it, rub it into your skin. Coconut oil is great for your skin. Then wash hair as usual.

Now is the time when we show embarrassing hair picture….
