3 Easy DIY Coconut Oil Hair Masks for Better Hair

Posted By Lovella Sitoy in Rapunzel on Feb 13, 2016

Dry and damaged locks. We’ve all been through it. But coconut oil is here for the rescue! This healing oil is perfect for rejuvenating unhealthy tresses. Coconut oil is one of the best natural oils for hair growth. Tradition and medicine have proven that!

Coconut oil is rich in linoleic acid and other nutrients that nourish the hair follicles. This encourages the growth of healthy and shiny hair. There are several ways to use coconut oil. We can take it as an oral supplement (food grade) or use it as a scalp and hair treatment.

A weekly hair mask helps hydrate our scalp as well as protect it from external threats. This is stimulating for the follicles. We can mix coconut oil with other ingredients that we see in our kitchen everyday such as herbs, other herbal oils, and fruits. These items give us vitamins and minerals that make healthy tresses.

Making a coconut oil hair mask is as easy as 1-2-3. We can finish it in just a few minutes! Here are some recipes to try at home.

Coconut oil and honey hair growth mask

Ingredients:

Steps:

Mix these two ingredients in a bowl. To open up the hair follicles, it is best to heat the oil-honey mixture in a saucepan before application. We can apply the mask onto wet or dry strands. Although wet hair is preferable for easier application.

Once applied on the hair, wrap your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour. This allows the scalp to drink the vitamins and healthy lipids in the coconut oil. After that, wash and shampoo/condition your hair as usual.

Coconut oil and avocado hair growth mask

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado (crushed)
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • A few drops of essential oil such as lavender or rosemary

Steps:

Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Apply onto your hair and scalp. Massage your head for a few minutes. Cover and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Wash and shampoo per usual.

Coconut oil and olive oil hair mask

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
Steps:

In a bowl, mix the ingredients. To open up the follicles, heating the oil before use helps. Add a few drops of any essential oil that you want such as lavender or rosemary oil. Apply onto hair and scalp. Massage for a few minutes. Bun up your hair and wrap. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual.

There’s a lot of coconut oil combinations that we can experiment with at home. Explore and be creative. These ingredients are both inexpensive and effective hair growth treatments. Consistent hair mask application for at least twice a week helps grow fuller, more beautiful hair strands.
