Coconut oil is such a great oil for your hair, that I dedicated a whole article to it.
I highly recommend reading it to learn about all of its benefits and get tips on how to use it.
One of coconut oil’s most amazing properties is that it manages to penetrate deeper into your hair than other oils.
It helps restore protein loss, which makes it especially good for damaged hair.
Using coconut oil as part of your hair regime helps your hair retain moisture, stimulate new hair growth and strengthen the hair fibre.
Its antimicrobial properties help protect your scalp and keep it healthy.
I’ve been making most of my beauty products and I love using pure, natural products that give great results.
Another key ingredient in this DIY coconut oil argan oil hair mask is argan oil, a very rich oil native to the argan tree from Morocco.
Argan oil is full with antioxidants, omega 6, vitamins A, C and E and linoleum acid.
It moisturizes and protects your hair from external influences such as heat and chemicals, it stimulates cell production, helps with hair loss and repairs.
It’s not just amazing for your hair, it provides tons of benefits for your skin as well.
When I travelled to Morocco I bought some good quality, locally sourced Argan oil and I am using it daily.
This hair mask also contains apple cider vinegar which balances the hair’s pH level, improves blood circulation, has anti-microbial properties and stimulates hair growth.
Lavender oil doesn’t just smell great, it also nourishes and relaxes your scalp, promotes hair growth and helps with blood circulation.
Melt the coconut oil au bain marie in a bowl placed in a pan with shimmering water on low heat.
Remove from heat and add the organ oil.
Combine the other 2 ingredients and mix everything well.
Apply on clean hair, working from the roots to the ends.
Leave the mask on for at least 30 minutes.
Rinse well with warm water and a natural shampoo.
You can easily use this DIY coconut oil argan oil hair mask once a week. If you’ve tried this mask or are going to, let me know how it worked for you and share your experience with the coco community on Instagram @coconutqueendom
