How to Make the Mask

Step 1. Blend or mix all ingredients.

If your recipe calls for coconut oil, remember to warm it up slightly beforehand so it becomes a mixable consistency: coconut oil solidifies at room temperature.

Step 2. Time to get masking. 

Apply your hair mask to dry or lightly dampened hair. Divide your hair into sections and apply the mask directly to those areas. By sectioning off your hair, you are making sure that you don’t miss any spots. Mix your hair altogether when done. Be sure to give your scalp some extra love.

Step 3. And now we wait.

Leave the mask on for at least 15-20 minutes, up to overnight if you desire and let those natural ingredients work their magic!

Step 4. Rinse.

Once you’re done, you want to make sure you wash your hair with your favorite natural shampoo and conditioner. You will not be disappointed—you really can’t go wrong with these natural hair masks!
