I have frizzy hair, which become more dry and unmanageable especially in monsoons. I rely a lot on homemade remedies, which are simple and help my hair become more manageable.
My favorite is the coconut cream hair mask I make to tame or smoothen the hair and remove the frizz. Believe me, I don’t go by big brands blindly when it comes to hair care; rather, you can find me always trying my hand at some new DIY remedy. Do you know why? One, homemade masks and remedies are completely natural; two, they don’t cost much and lastly, it works wonders on my hair.
This hair mask works so well on heat treated hair. If you do many heat treatments like me, i mean if you use straighter, hair dryer and other heat equipment for your hair, then this hair mask is for you. This is so right for my hair. I just love coconut cream hair mask DIY.
My coconut cream hair mask is not only good for moisturizing my tresses but also drastically makes my hair soft and healthy. My scalp is little oily, so I avoid using it on my scalp. So let’s see the how I make my mask.
Coconut Cream Hair Mask
- 1/2 bowl fresh and coarsely grated coconut pulp or cream
- 1/2 bowl fresh coconut milk (some times i avoid coconut milk.)
- 2 teaspoon sweet almond oil (if available, you can avoid this if its not available. I rarely use this.)
Please note that fresh coconut would give you much better results, so try and get a fresh one.
- Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Make sure that all of the things have blended well together.
- Take the mix in your palms and apply generously to damp hair.
- Cover your head with a shower cap and leave it on for at least half an hour.
- Rinse with warm water.
Applying this mask on the scalp can boost hair growth but applying it just on the hair will condition it deeply. Both coconut milk and cream are super foods for your hair and also tame the frizz. The mask hydrates your hair well and also cures the dry and damaged hair. The added advantage is gained by ingredients like almond oil, which make your hair soft and shiny.
Another benefit of this mask unlike many other recipes is that it doesn’t smell bad. In fact, I like how my hair smells after I wash it. This makes gives you a great luster and moisture to your hair.
Because of the high content of the saturated fats, coconut is a great emulsifier, which can cure your damaged hair and bring back its gorgeousness. Did you know that Indonesian girls use coconut milk for washing their hair because of its natural deep conditioning qualities?
After applying this mask on my hair my hair feels so smooth, silky and straight as well. I love using this hair mask a lot.
So try out my coconut cream hair mask soon and get beautiful, silky hair.
Most of the times i like using only cream on my hair. I avoid mixing it with coconut milk and almond oil. But sometimes i like using coconut milk and almond oil when i feel my scalp are bit dry and my hair are bit rough after so many heat treatments.
P.S. Applying this mask on your hair is little bit messy but you will get really good results. That’s the reason i did not share my picture with you guys, because when ever i apply this mask i am all over covered with cream mask. Its all over on my face, my dress, actually on everything. 😉
