With Summer being right around the corner, I started the process of lightening my hair. Anyone who has ever colored their hair knows that it will damage your hair, especially if you are going lighter! To help repair and lengthen my hair, I started using a hair masks out of Coconut oil and castor oil once a week. This helped with keeping my hair soft and healthy after my color treatment. Recently, I started using essential oils in my everyday life, and so I decided to use essential oils in my hair masks as well.
This last week has been a very emotional week for Kat & me and I have been feeling very fatigued and with low spirits. Because of this, I wanted to give myself a small spa feeling that would leave me refreshed and rejuvenated. For making this hair mask, I combined three carrier oils: the Trader Joe’s coconut oil, doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil and Castor oil (to help with hair growth) and two essential oils: Wild Orange to lift up my mood and energy & Peppermint to awaken and give me a refreshing feeling. I combined all the oils and rubbed it all over my scalp going down to my hair ends. Once I felt like I spread it evenly across my hair, I combed out my hair to spend it even more evenly.
This is how my hair looks once I am done. I then just leave my hair like this for the rest of the day and wash my hair the following morning.
