An Easy DIY Coconut Oil Hair Mask Recipe

Hair masks can be really quite expensive. Wouldn't it then be wonderful if you could make it at home? Coconut oil can penetrate through the hair shafts, adding moisture to the locks, making them stronger and repairing them from the roots. Additionally, it's rich in antioxidants, which nourishes the hair and helps it grow and remain healthy. If your hair is super dry and parched, add coconut oil to the conditioner, and add other moisturizers such as eggs, argan oil, bananas, etc to tame the frizz and detangle the locks. So let's get started with the DIY process of making this mask at home.
