This is a recipe for an All Natural Hair Mask that is a great deep conditioning treatment made with just three natural ingredients.
For as long as I have been an adult, I have enjoyed a good beauty night. One where I bust out the treatments and nail polish. Doing an overall once over to keep things fresh, exfoliated, and healthy. It’s a great form of self-care that helps keep us confident when we are well cared for.
You simply can’t have a beauty night without a treatment for your hair. Whether that is just slathering on some coconut oil or making a mask, needless to say, the hair needs that extra TLC.
With all the heating, dying, and shampooing we do, it deserves it. I try so hard to wash my hair only a few times per week, but that is a hard thing to do for a girl like me. I like my hair cleaned and styled every day.
On non-wash days that throwing the hair up in a bun is a Saturday-only move with all the places, I have to be in a week. Although my Natural Dry Shampoo helps on those non-wash days. However, even if you don’t wash much, a lot of the time our hair is dried from just general elements. Swimming during the summertime or having a freshly colored mane.
This all-natural hair mask is a wonderful treatment that you can do in as little as 30 minutes or paint it on while you clean the house for hours. Either way, it’s a great way to pamper your tresses so they stay shiny and moisturized. You will need just a few ingredients and roughly ten minutes of your time to whip this one up.
Why I Love This Recipe
I color treat my hair. Just a few highlights nothing too crazy. I also have fine hair which needs some extra TLC. Otherwise, it can be pretty dull and lifeless. I love also using natural things for health and beauty. Yet it can be quite difficult to find anything that is effective on the beauty store shelf. Well effective and natural at the same time, I should say.
This all-natural hair mask is made from not just all-natural ingredients. But ones that actually work well to help lock in moisture in my hair. The mask keeps well in a mason jar and with this recipe, I can do two masks a week for a few months. A completely cost-effective way to have a high-quality hair mask with multiple uses.
Beeswax: helps moisturize hair, is antioxidant, antibacterial, has traces of vitamin A, and seals split ends.
Olive Oil: reduces damage, helps hair maintain shine, can help reduce dandruff, moisturizes, and helps reduce breakage.
Coconut Oil: moisturizes, helps prevent dandruff, reduces hair breakage, reduces split ends, and promotes hair growth.
What You Will Need To Make It
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup beeswax pellets
2 tbsp of coconut oil
Using a double boiler or a sauce pan with a bowl over, combine the olive oil, coconut oil, and beeswax. Allow them to melt together over medium heat. To speed the process along you can opt to add a piece of foil over the bowl if using a bowl with the saucepan.
When it is all melted together, use a heat-protective glove or towel to remove the bowl or double boiler from heat. Have a mason jar or an air-tight storage container ready and pour it into the jar. Allow it to set before using. This takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
How To Use
Brush out your hair. Then dip your fingers in and begin rubbing it on your hair. Make sure to spread it to the dry areas. Usually the tips of the hair. Take a large comb and comb it through to ensure the mask is spread throughout your hair. Let it sit for 30 minutes or for several hours. When ready to rinse off, simply wash and condition your hair as usual. You may need to wash the hair twice to fully remove the mask.
How To Store
Store your All Natural Hair Mask in a mason jar or any air-tight container with a lid. Since it is made with oils keep it in a cool dry place. A bathroom cabinet or hall closet works well. This hair mask will last up to 5 months if stored properly.
Why Use a Hair Mask
Many times over we think that our shampoo and conditioning routine is enough to keep our hair nourished. But when we consider the amount of wear and tear our hair goes through on a daily basis, we likely need a good hair mask to help keep it healthy. Color treating, curling, straightening, brushing incorrectly, and even some products can be damaging to our hair. Using a deep conditioning hair mask a least once a week can help revive the hair and restore its natural shine.
This all natural hair mask makes a great handmade gift. Placing it in a mason jar with a cute tag and twine creates a sweet handmade beauty gift. For a more elaborate gift add it to a spa-like basket with this Grapefruit Sugar Scrub and this DIY Natural Lip Balm. Or create a theme around your gift. Add a brush, bobby pins, a clip, and this dry shampoo for a hair care basket.
