These are the recipes you need to make a hair saving mask from your kitchen. 

Coconut oil has become the number one beauty ingredient in the last few years, because of its nourishing properties, though there are mixed reviews for skin application, but for hair it may just be the holy grail. A 30-minute coconut oil hair mask can do wonders for restoring moisture in your hair, while an overnight hair mask can protect hair for weeks to come. There’s a little price to pay unlike expensive organic hair products from the shop, and the ingredients for a homemade hair mask can be found at most grocery stores. 


Use this recipe for dry brittle hair, for this, you will need:

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin coconut oil

1 Tbsp. honey

1 egg

If the coconut oil is not in a liquid state, melt it on the stove or in the microwave. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl, then combine the egg with the coconut oil, do not add the egg in the oil while it's hot because it will cook. Add the honey and whisk again until the mixture is consistent. On clean and damp hair, separate into sections and apply mixture from root to tip, making sure each section is evenly covered. Then wrap your hair in a shower cap or towel for 30 minutes. Finish off by rising out the hair mask with water and your favorite shampoo, let the hair dry and style as desired.

For this hair mask, you'll need:

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin coconut oil

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

In a bowl, combine the coconut oil with the apple cider vinegar, mixing well. The apple cider vinegar is great for deep cleansing while the coconut oil will nourishe and moisturize your hair. Apply the mask to dry or damp hair in sections, evenly covering each section from root to tip. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse out. Follow with your routine shampoo and conditioner.
