DIY Hair Mask

I don't know about you, but my hair has been crazy dry lately. Not only that, but super staticy too (can we all agree that is the worst?). Curious about homemade hair masks, I scoured Pinterest for a recipe and found one with common ingredients that I already had in the kitchen. So while watching the Oscars Sunday night, I hesitantly decided to give it a try.

Here's what you do: 

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl until they are well combined. On dry, unwashed hair, apply the mixture starting at the roots of your hair and work your way through, combing to make sure it gets everywhere. Once it is evenly distributed, clip your hair up and leave it for 30 to 60 minutes (I couldn't stand the smell so I washed it after 30 haha). Rinse it out of your hair while in the shower and shampoo and condition like usual. 

Even though I liked it, putting a honey olive oil mixture in my hair was kind of the strangest thing ever... I'm not a big fan of either scents (combined it is even worse, yuck) but it seemed to do the trick nonetheless. I really recommend you give it a try! A BIG disclaimer though: make sure you wash your hair at least two times after doing this! My hair was still super oily after one, so three washes is really ideal. Don't do this on a Sunday night like me, however - I advise you to do it on a Friday night when you can wash it multiple times throughout the weekend. You don't want to have to go into public with this hot mess of a hair... Trust me!

Is there a hair mask you swear by?

  2. Next time, put a cheap shower cap (like the kind you find in a hotel room!) over your hair so you can't smell it!

  3. I've actually done something like this before! I did an apple cider vinegar rinse on my hair and I think it helped! Maybe I'll try out this recipe before spring break!

  4. This sounds like a great hair mask! But I can see what you mean about the smell haha I always do my hair masks on the weekend when I have more time to wash them out. I also love using coconut oil as a hair mask :)

  6. Olive oil is tricky with hair - use half a tablespoon and only use it on the bottom half of your hair and your hair won't end up as oily after! I've had a lot of DIY hair treatment experience, haha!

Enriched with proteins, keratin and infused with argan oil, one of the world's rarest oils which is derived from the Moroccan Argan Tree. Penetrates deeply into the hair to help restore elasticity and rebuild strength while repairing damage caused by environmental factors, chemical treatments. Leaving it incredibly moisturized with brilliant shine. You can get more details at http://www.safrons.com/pro-naturals-moroccan-argan-oil-hair-mask.html
