We all love a good hair treatment, especially one that smells amazing. This one smells just like a cinnamon doughnut and will leave your hair smelling delicious!
The main ingredient is good old coconut oil. It has so many benefits for both inside your body and outside. A healthy oil that you can use for cooking, frying food and raw baking, you can use as a moisturiser or make up remover, a healing balm and also in your hair for healthy, smooth and soft locks!
This DIY recipe for a cruelty free and vegan hair masque/treatment will not only leave your hair smelling like cinnamon doughnuts but leave your hair looking as good as a 'wind in hair' shampoo commercial, silky, smooth and shiny.
The recipe calls for three easy ingredients you should have in your pantry; pure vanilla extract, cinnamon and cold pressed organic coconut oil. If you don't have these, your local supermarket or health food store will stock them. We recommend Cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil and 100% organic vanilla extract.
Cinnamon stimulates your scalp which in turn leads to healthy hair development and growth.
Vanilla will leave your hair smelling like heaven for days! (or until you wash it again)
Coconut oil relieves a dry itchy scalp as well and nourishing the hair leaving it stronger, smoother and shinier.
You will need:
1/2C Melted Cold pressed Coconut Oil (long hair)
2t pure vanilla extract
1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and massage into dry hair, you may want to soften or melt the coconut oil as it'll be much easier to spread throughout your hair. Make sure you massage the treatment into your scalp to help with any dandruff.
2. Wrap in glad wrap or a towel and leave to set for 20 mins. You could leave this overnight if you desire, and wash in the morning for an extra potent hair mask.
The coconut oil may start to solidify, but don't worry, that's normal. Once you are ready to rinse the masque out, massage a good shampoo throughout your hair. We love the Sukin Moisture Restoring Shampoo. You need to make sure you do this before you add water to your hair, we cannot stress this enough, as the water will just bead off your hair and will be very difficult to remove. The soap will remove the mask first, then the water will remove both.
Once shampooed, condition your hair with you favourite hydrating conditioner, we love the Sukin Moisture Restoring Conditioner. Dry as normal.
This masque can be kept in a jar or container in the fridge or bathroom cabinet. It's so simply to make and works a real treat!
