How To Make An At-Home Hair Mask With Just 3 Ingredients

by BUST Magazine


If your hair needs a little extra love, look no further than your own kitchen. With a few basic ingredients, whipping up a rejuvenating hair mask is a breeze. These two super-simple recipes start with a base of coconut oil and honey. Coconut oil is great for your skin, and when used on your hair, it not only adds moisture but also prevents breakage and restores luster. Honey helps seal that moisture in. Plus, it smoothes, softens, and shines. You can add different ingredients to this base depending on your hair type. The strawberry version below helps eliminate oil and bumps up shine, while the avocado mask adds some much-needed moisture to a dry scalp.

Simply mash all the ingredients together and apply to damp hair from roots to tips. Then, cover your tresses with a plastic bag or shower cap, relax for about 20 to 30 minutes, and rinse.
