Coconut Oil, Strawberry + Honey Hair Mask Recipe For Shiny Hair

As the coronavirus lockdown in the UK continues, lots of us will be starting to feel the effects on our appearance, with trips to the hairdressers out of the question. Dark roots, overgrown fringe and frazzled ends? We feel your pain – but at least we are all in the same boat!

The good news is, it’s easy to create your own DIY hair treatment using natural ingredients, for an at-home pamper session you can enjoy in your pyjamas (or you can get dressed if you’re feeling really fancy!) To make your own natural hair mask using coconut oil, strawberries and honey, follow the recipe below to add a dose of nourishment to your locks and help restore beautifully shiny hair.

Coconut Oil, Strawberry + Honey Hair Mask

You will need:
• 1 tbsp unrefined, organic coconut oil
• 1 tbsp honey
• 6-8 fresh strawberries

• Prep the strawberries by washing them and removing any leaves
• Melt the coconut oil by gently stirring in a saucepan over a low heat until it becomes clear
• Add all the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth
• Apply the mask to towel dried hair and leave to absorb for 5-10 minutes
• Rinse well using warm water

This DIY hair mask is easy to make and will leave your hair feeling soft and looking shiny, thanks to the power of the natural ingredients used. Coconut oil is packed full of fatty acids, meaning it penetrates the hair more deeply than regular conditioners, giving a silky finish. Honey is a natural humectant, so it sucks moisture into the hair and prevents it from escaping; great if the ends of your hair are feeling on the dry side. Finally, not only do strawberries smell amazing, they are also bursting with vitamin C and can help eliminate excess oil and grease, which is a winning combination in our book!
