For today’s quick beauty tip we focused on reversing damage on your color-treated hair or if you excessively use heat to style.
We want to make sure that all the “beautistas” out there can try a variety of looks and hairstyles while maintaining your locks healthy!
You will need:
- Coconut Oil (extra virgin oil preferred)
- Shower Cap(optional)
Make sure your hair is dry before applying the coconut oil
Scoop out coconut oil onto your hands and rub your hands together so the oil begins to melt.
Saturate your hair with coconut oil starting from the scalp all the way to your ends. Pay special attention to your ends! This is how you can target split ends and dry ends.
Comb through your hair and then clip oiled hair at the top of your head.
Wet the towel and heat it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until hot. You want to wrap the hot towel around your head. If you need to clip it to keep in place, do so. The heat will help the coconut oil work more effectively and deep down in your hair.
Use the shower cap to maintain the heat longer.
Wear the mask for about 30 minutes and then shampoo and condition regularly. (If you need to wash rinse and repeat, do so! You want to make sure you get all the oil out.)
You should see the results immediately and for a long period of time if you are consistent with it but don’t apply this mask more than twice a week.
