Natural Beauty: DIY Hair Mask

Trying to find a good hair mask if you're vegan can be very difficult.  And the companies that do choose to not test on animals or include animal ingredients are usually substantially more expensive.  I'm not saying there aren't great products out there, but why pay the money if you can make it yourself at home, with things you likely already have?

Today, I'm going to show you a few ideas for making your own hair mask in your kitchen (don't worry, non of these take more than about 5 minutes, if that).  First up, a Coconut-Banana Deep Conditioner. 

To make this you'll need:
  • 2 1/2 tbsp virgin organic coconut oil
  • 1 small pureed banana (Be sure to get this pureed REALLY well; otherwise you'll end up with banana pieces in your hair, which I think we can all agree is kinda gross.)
Wash your hair with whatever shampoo you choose to use, and rinse.  Follow with your Coconut-Banana Deep Conditioner, letting it sit on your hair for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse, and follow with a small amount of shampoo again (just to be sure you get everything out).  You can then follow with another conditioner if you think you need it.  You'll be left with less frizz and a gorgeous sheen!

Maybe you're not someone who really likes coconut or banana.  Here are some other things you could use:
  • avocados
  • coconut milk
  • olive oil
  • almond oil
  • beer
  • apple cider vinegar can balance the pH in your hair. (Note: If you have any cuts or sensitive areas on your scalp, don't do this one.  It WILL burn.)
What are some other things that you've tried that have worked for you?  Please share with us in the comments, or leave me a question. 
Namaste -
