Make Your Own – Hydrating Honey Hair Mask.

 This Hydrating Honey Hair mask packs an amazing nourishing punch! I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have. You’ll have to let me know if you try it. I’ve outlined the benefits of each ingredient below. ❤


What You’ll Need:

3 tsp – Honey: Honey helps to Shine & Soften, improves Scalp Health, & Promotes Growth.

2 tsp – Coconut Oil: Rich in Vitamins & Minerals, Strengthens Hair, Fights Against Premature Aging, Baldness & Hair Loss. Nourishes Dry Scalp & Dandruff, Repairs Damage & Split Ends, Softens & Adds Shine.

2 tsp –Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Rich in Antioxidants, Stimulates Follicles which can Result in Thicker Strands. Moisturizes, Dandruff Control, Fights DHT Production (Hair Loss)

5 drops –Lavender Oil: Hair Growth, Prevents Hair Loss, Clears up Dandruff, & Psoriasis. Enhances Blood Circulation improving Scalp Health & Hair Re-Growth.

2 drops – Peppermint Oil: Stimulates Hair Follicles, Prevents Hair Loss, Promotes Hair Growth, Moisturizes, Reduces Dandruff & Dry Scalp. Helps Regulate & Restore Natural Oil Production.

This recipe makes enough for one application.

  • Soften Coconut Oil in a mixing bowl. Spoon in honey olive oil, & essential oils mix together well.
  • Apply like conditioner to wet / washed hair. Massage into scalp and all throughout strands. You can bring this in the bath or shower with you. Leave on for 5-30 minutes to fully enjoy the nourishing benefits. If you want to leave it on overnight you should wrap your head in a towel or shower cap to avoid getting everything sticky. ^_^ Rinse thoroughly or repeat wash & condition.

*It may be wise to test a small patch on your scalp first as peppermint oil can be spicy. Everyone reacts differently to everything. If it feels like it may sting or burn, dilute more with an extra spoon or two of Olive Oil and use less peppermint oil in the next batch.*

ALSO: please be careful if you’re doing this in the bath as it may leave your tub slippery from all the oils.

An extra bonus, after massaging this into your hair, your hands are left feeling extra smooth too!

Also, you can refer to my list on How to choose a Carrier Oil for making a mask for other hair types as this one is generally for normal to dry hair. You may want to swap a few ingredients if you have oily hair.

    I just thought I would leave you a little warning about peppermint eo, it is wonderful and I usr it quite a bit in a lot of products, but because of its “awakening and tingling ” properties, be very careful when rinsing as to not let it get “down there” it has a very potent effect and has actually been used in male and female enhancement creams and ointments its very ” stimulating” it won’t hurt you but could really make you uncomfortable, so just take caution, unless of course your looking to spice things up, I learned this personally first hand lol a little peppermint goes a long way
