Honey, Coconut Oil and Aloe Hair Mask

This is a really easy hair mask that you can whip up from ingredients you already have at home. We use coconut oil as it’s high in essential fatty acids, protein and vitamins A and E which are all great for hair and it’s actually able to penetrate the hair rather than simply coating it which means the hair shaft gets the true nourishment.
We’ve added honey as it’s a natural humectant which means it attracts moisture and its antibacterial properties will help promote a healthy scalp. Finally, aloe vera is a fantastic ingredient for hair care, despite it being used much more commonly for skin. It’s soothing and anti inflammatory for irritated scalps, plus also has a similar chemical structure to keratin which is fantastic for providing hair with protein.
