Post summer TLC for hair

A few days ago, I was trying on a pair of jeans in a store changing room. The changing room had mirrors placed so that you could see front and back views. I was shocked to see how dry and brittle looking my hair was looking after being exposed to the sun all summer. Time for some post-summer TLC!!

I decided a coconut hair mask might do the trick. At this time of year you might find that you need to warm the coconut a little so that it turns from an opaque solid to a clear liquid. Then all you need to do is apply the coconut oil to your hair. 
Section off your hair using a comb and apply to the roots first. If you have a brush for hair dying, this is a good way to apply the oil (or an old pastry brush!?). You might also use a squeezy bottle with a narrow nozzle. Apply to the ends next and tie your hair up. 
Cover your hair with cling film and then a towel. Leave for an hour, then wash off with your usual shampoo (you might need to shampoo twice). If you wish you can repeat the treatment in one week's time.

Coconut oil is anti-fungal so it would also help if you have a problem with dandruff. You could also add a couple of drops of an essential oil such as lavender or rosemary to your coconut oil before applying to your hair. Both these oils promote hair growth. Rosemary was traditionally used as a hair tonic. This brings back memories of my mum boiling up fresh rosemary to use on her hair, once it had cooled of course.

So if like me, the sun has taken its toll on your hair why not give a coconut hair mask a try?

Love your hair!
