Delicious and deeply nourishing, this DIY mask provides incredible shine and stimulates hair growth. It also has a gentle, tropically sweet, floral scent.
Grape Seed Oil nourishes hair building fibers which makes it perfect for thin, dry and damaged hair. Raw Mango Butter restores the outer cuticle, makes the hair shiny and prevents the formation of split ends. Ylang Ylang Essential oil stimulates hair growth. It is also a key ingredient in many floral perfumes.
Optional: if you have dark hair, you can add 1 tsp Castor oil to this mask.
Mix well all the ingredients.
Apply the mask directly on dry hair. Massage it in from the roots to the tips then comb through your hair with your fingers. You can also use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush to have the mask equally distributed.
Leave it on for at least 20 minutes. To optimize the mask's effects, cover your head with a hot towel or a silk scarf you don't mind using for this purpose. You can also let the mask sit in overnight (perfect for very dry and color-treated hair).
Wash away with a gentle shampoo.
Beauty Tip: Mixing this hair mask with pure Aloe Vera Gel makes it easier to apply and wash off later, especially if you have long and thin hair like me ;)
