Budget Beauty

We're girls who loves nothing more than a trip to the hairdressers and having some down time in a comfy reclined chair, having our tresses lathered up and head firmly massaged - we're feeling drowsy just typing this! But, we all know that a salon smooth Barnet sometimes comes with a hefty price tag - Well, not any more! Set up salon in your bathroom with this D.I.Y Coconut Oil Hair Mask. 

What you'll need
Coconut Oil - Coconut Oil is an amazing product to have in your pantry, you can use it on your hair, your skin and even in your cooking! So when buying a tub, look at it more as an investment. 
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Optional. 

 Step One: Scoop out some coconut oil from the container and massage into dry hair. Apply root to tip if your hair is particularly dry, or just to the ends if you prefer. Coconut oil acts as a conditioner for your much loved locks and it smells delicious too! - think 'Bounty'. If you're wanting to add extra virgin olive oil into this mask to create a hot oil treatment then you can mix both the olive oil and coconut oil into a bowl and place in the microwave for a few seconds. Extra virgin olive oil will hydrate your locks and applying the product to your hair warm allows the hair follicles to open and allows the product to get down deep to sort damaged hair. You really will feel like you're at the salon. 

 Step Two: Wrap your hair into a towel, or use a band to push it away from your face and leave in for a good 20 minutes to do it's thing. 

Step Three: Hop into the shower and rinse out. Make sure you shampoo your hair TWICE as to not leave any excess product in your hair that might create grease and whack on some conditioner if your hair is crying out for it!

Step Four: Now to style it up. Flip your head upside down and part dry with a hair dryer to achieve volume in your roots. Flip your head up and say 'Hello' to your new crowning glory!
