Beauty on a Budget: Coconut Hair Mask

I love, love, loooooooooooooove hair masks! I find it wonderful to give myself a couple of hours to just sit around, drink tea, read books&blogs and have a hair mask working its magic on my hair. One of my favourite hair masks consists of nothing but coconut oil. You got it. The stuff you can also cook your food with. Available at most supermarkets and Asian stores. Wonderful stuff!

This is what it’s supposed to look like:

Take one tablespoon and let it melt in your hand. Gently rub it in your hair and comb it through. Let it sit there for at least one hour. Make sure you’re not wearing anything that you wouldn’t want smudged! I suggest wrapping a towel around your shoulders. Wash your hair the way you normally do. And there you go: sleek and smooth hair!

Don’t forget to put a mask on your face 15 minutes before you want to wash the hair mask out of you hair. You might as well pamper your face while you’re at it!

So, by now you guys have discovered that I like to rub food on my face and in my hair. (My husband still thinks that behaviour a bit nutty.) Hey, it works for me…so why shouldn’t it work for you? Plus: it’s cheap as chips!
