If you've read my blog before, then you know that I {heart} coconut oil!  I use it on my hair and skin, and I am always looking for more great recipes.  This easy DIY coconut oil and peppermint hair mask smells wonderful and leaves you with soft, beautiful hair.

I use a hair mask about once a week to keep my hair soft and more manageable.  It also helps reduce frizz and keeps my hair healthy, even with heat styling and getting it bleached and dyed.  This hair mask is one of the easier ones that I make.

DIY Coconut Oil and Peppermint Hair Mask Recipe

What You Need


1.  Melt coconut oil slightly in a glass dish in the microwave.  Times may vary, but 10-20 seconds should be good.  If it melts completely, just make sure it is not too hot before you apply it to your hair.
2.  Add honey and peppermint oil and stir well.
3.  Spread all over your hair and let sit for 30 minutes.  Cover hair with a warm towel or use a shower cap to trap your body heat for more benefits.
4.  Rinse hair well and wash and condition as usual.

I make enough for one application and don't store the leftovers.  None of the ingredients will go bad if you store it, but it's easy enough to make each time, so I don't bother storing it.
