Dealing with dry and dreary hair? Well, not trying to scare you or anything, but it is only going to get worse for your dry strands during winter. As the winter wind blows, the dry air strips your hair of its natural moisture and you know what happens next—your mane gets (and looks) drier than ever and in serious need for some TLC.
Luckily, one of the good things about winters is coconut oil, which can help fix your winter-struck skin, lips, hair and basically anything and everything. So, make good use of the wondrous coconut oil to bring your hair back to life. How? Here are three hydrating and nourishing coconut oil hair masks to treat your dry hair with. Make these at home and pamper your dry hair and turn them from drab to fab in winters.
Coconut oil and honey
Both coconut oil and honey are super hydrating. This mask locks in the moisture in your hair and makes it shinier and smooth. Mix equal amount of warm organic coconut oil and honey according to the length of your hair and apply it evenly to dry hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash it off with a mild shampoo. Repeat once a week for visibly luscious and healthy hair.
Coconut oil and avocado
If your hair is dry and damaged, avocado and coconut oil can repair the damage and moisturise the driest of locks. It also helps smoothen and soften dry ends and thus is an excellent remedy for dry hair. Mash one avocado and add two tablespoons of coconut oil into it. Mix well and apply to your hair in small sections. Rinse after 15 minutes and follow up with shampoo. Do this twice a week before a hair wash.
Coconut oil and egg
While coconut oil nourishes hair and seals the moisture in dry scalps, egg adds shine (read: life) to your dull hair and make it silky and lustrous. The protein in the egg also makes the hair stronger and healthy. Whisk one egg and pour two tablespoons of coconut oil into it. Mix it to combine the ingredients well and apply to your hair with the help of a brush. Let it stay for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with a sweet-smelling shampoo and repeat weekly.
