With summer right around the corner and the spring sun beating down, we’re all going to spend a fair amount of our days soaking up the rays. But due to the prolonged exposure to the sun, our hair takes quite a beating. The UVA and UVB rays from the sun can damage the outer part of the hair, called the cuticle. Visible harm to the hair can include discoloration, split ends and/or frizz. Yes, unfortunately there can be too much of a good thing. But we’re here to help combat the harmful rays and help repair your luscious locks!
You can use the Skinny & Co. DIY hair mask on wet or dry hair, although it may be easier to apply to damp hair. The mask can be left on your hair anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight. It contains only a few ingredients, all of which you likely already have in your kitchen!
Coconut Honey Hair Mask
In a small bowl, use the double boiler method to gently liquefy the coconut oil. (It doesn’t take much heat!) Add the egg yolk and honey and mix thoroughly. Distribute the mask evenly on the hair and scalp. Throw your hair in a bun and leave the treatment on for at least 30 minutes. After your preferred length of time, shampoo and condition your hair as normal. The combination of these three products aren’t new, but they are a sure fire way to maintain the strength and boost the shine of your hair!
Pro Tip: Concentrate most of the product of the ends of the hair and the scalp.
