The temperature has dropped, and in Texas, it is storm season. While it’s not quite cold enough to be wearing all your favorite winter wear something needs to be done to keep those tresses tamed as the weather changes.
Lately, I’ve been feeling rather ravaged and in much need of a little pampering. When it comes to hair and facial treats I want it natural and I want it effective. We’ve got great hair masks at Soap Hope and sometimes it is fun to make your own using items in your kitchen and a little help from the Soap Hope shop. How about a DIY Autumn Hair Mask?
This treatment takes minutes to make and only uses three simple ingredients and will be leaving you feeling pampered with luscious, glossy, soft locks – what’s not to love about that!?
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil (Try Dr. Bronner’s Coconut Oils)
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Two drops of cinnamon herbal liquid (Try Herb Pharm’s)
- Mix the ingredients into a small bowl and blend them all together.
- Place the ingredients into the microwave for a few seconds (you don’t want it hot, just warm).
Brush your hair out and dip your fingers into the ingredients and begin to massage into your hair starting at the temples and working over the whole scalp down to the tips of your hair.
Twist your hair up into a towel or a shower cap if you are wanting to go for that extra sexy look.
Leave it in for a few hours while doing things around the house or just reading a book to relax.
This mask has a lovely warm feeling and smells great too! Cinnamon, honey, and coconut oil are all renowned for their benefits to healthy glowing hair and skin – some even believe it promotes hair growth, adds a glossy sheen, and can create natural gleaming highlights. Keep this treatment going once a month throughout the whole season and your hair will thank you!
To remove the mask, just rinse with warm water (not too hot) and gently massage the hair and scalp to remove fully. You might think that the oil would be hair to remove and will leave your hair feeling yucky. I find that it rinses away really easily, and leaves my hair clean, glossy, and super soft. Say goodbye autumn frizz and hello gorgeous!
