Masks are an essential part of healthy hair care, especially in rough weather. If you feel like your strands are getting dry, brittle, and thirsty, it’s time for some hair TLC. Sometimes you can’t always go out and purchase the newest hair masks on the market, so why not make your own? With the help of Latest-Hairstyles.com, we have a step-by-step guide on how to create your very own Watermelon Coconut Oil mask to give your mane some much needed moisture.
Know Your Ingredients!
- Coconut Oil: The base of this anti-breakage, split-end treatment is coconut oil. All hair can benefit from coconut oil, but it’s especially beneficial for brittle, breaking hair. It’ll deeply moisturizing, soften and add sheen.
- Oontanga Oil: This is oil made from African watermelon seeds, and it’s loaded with essential fatty acids that stops your hair from breaking and makes hair shiny.
- Camellia Seed Oil: This oil comes from Korea and permeates the hair shaft to restore vibrancy and strength. It also softens your hair and keeps split ends and breakage at bay.
- Argan Oil: This is a conditioning oil that seals the cuticle, adds shine, and makes hair more manageable during the styling process.
Step 1: Combine two tablespoons of liquid coconut oil with 10 drops of each of the other oils and stir well.
Step 2: Apply the oil blend to the ends of your hair and let it set for 10 to 20 minutes before shampooing.
Step 3: Condition and style as normal and repeat once a week for best results.
This recipe makes enough for three weeks of treatment (depending on hair length and thickness). Store in an airtight jar in a dark place. If you place it in the fridge, you’ll need to zap it for 30 seconds to melt it down again.
