Secret Coconut Beauty Tips from Pinterest..Shhhhhh

Coconut milk and oil has been heralded as the secret weapon to protecting hair against the meanest heat tools around. And I for one definitely can go into dominatrix mode when getting ready for an evening out (blow drying, flat ironing, curling… oh my!)

So here is my modified secret recipe for super shiny and nourished hair… plus its all natural (no weird additives that no one can pronounce)

  • 1/2 cup of organic coconut milk (go for the full fatty version, you’re hair ain’t on a diet ladies!)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of honey (I used manuka honey or you can sub in raw honey)
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (it will invigorate the scalp)
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 1 table spoon of Virgin Coconut Oil

 

  1. Combine all ingredients into a plastic microwave safe container
  2. Nuke for 20 seconds or until luke warm
  3. While in shower, pour mix over head and massage into scalp (make sure you hit those split ends)
  4. Pull hair into bun or pin it up, and let mixture soak in for 15 – 20 minutes (it helps to cover hair with one of those cheap plastic shower caps so it doesn’t drip into your eyes)
  5. Rinse out and shampoo/condition as normal

Hair will be silky and de-frizzed. I try to do this every week to protect my curly, unruly hair from the cold fall weather. Feel free to get creative and add a dash of cinnamon.

Enjoy!
