Coconut Oil

Consuming anything coconut is great for you, but it is also great when used on the exterior. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants, anti-fungal, and has antibacterial properties that can improve the overall health of your hair and scalp. These properties fight off bacteria and viruses in your scalp that play a role in having a dry, itchy scalp, dandruff, and hair loss. The lauric acid (filled with essential chain fatty acids) found in coconut oil penetrates deep into the hair shaft, improving the health of your hair. Its high moisture retention will help repair damaged, dry and brittle hair.

Honey like coconut oil also helps retain moisture and keeps the hair conditioned to allow for less breakage. The high antioxidant properties found in honey help strengthen hair follicles. The antibacterial properties aid with dandruff and eczema scalp problems; while minimizing hair follicle impurities that may lead to clogging, and then to hair loss. Honey is filled with vitamins and minerals that will give you healthier and shinier locks.

What You'll Need 

1/4 Cup of melted organic coconut oil
1 tbs. of raw honey
Mixing Bowl
Shower Cap/Towel 

How To

Combine the coconut oil and honey in a bowl and mix well. You may want to melt the coconut oil and honey a little bit to more easily apply it onto your hair and scalp. Once applied, wrap your hair in a towel or use a shower cap to retain the moisture. Leave the hair mask in for 20-30 minutes. Rinse and wash as you normally would and enjoy shiny, voluminous, and luxurious hair.
