Homemade Gift: Coconut Oil Honey Hair Mask
Using coconut oil has many advantages. It can be used as a lip balm or even as a hair mask. You can create a special hair mask and then offer it as a Christmas gift. All natural homemade gifts are really special and quite efficient. And this homemade recipe doesn’t cost too much. All of the ingredients used for the homemade hair mask have different properties. Let’s take the coconut oil, for example. It makes the dandruff go away because it has an antifungal and antibacterial effect. It is rich in vitamins like vitamin K, vitamin E as well as iron. Another ingredient that you`ll be mixing for this special homemade hair mask is honey. Honey moisturizes the hair. It also has antibacterial properties, just like coconut oil. And if it is used frequently it naturally lightens hair in time. Which is a great option for those who don’t want to ruin their natural hair color by dying it with a lot of nasty chemicals. You`ll also be using apple cider vinegar that keeps the pH of your hair in balance. Vinegar is a sort of acid that quickly gets rid of any shampoo or styling products that leave residues on your hair. The apple cider vinegar also makes your hair look shinier and softer to the touch. The recipe goes like this: you will need to melt two parts coconut oil and mix them with one part apple cider vinegar and two parts honey. Mix them all together and then pour the mixture into a jar that you`ll place in the microwave oven. The homemade hair mask will separate in the jar. You will always have to melt the ingredients before applying it on your hair.
