“It’s no secret that coconut oil is like liquid gold where hair is concerned. Dry hair slurps it up immediately, and you can feel and see the difference after a treatment,” explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site Latest-Hairstyles.com.

“Today we’re taking the traditional coconut oil hair mask one step further, though, by combining coconut oil with a super potent blend of hair-nourishing oils. Together, they’ll soften, hydrate, restore and strengthen the ends of your hair to prevent dreaded breakage and split ends.”

About The Oils:
Coconut Oil: The base of this anti-breakage, split-end treatment is coconut oil. All hair can benefit from coconut oil, but it’s especially beneficial for brittle, breaking hair. It’ll deeply moisturizing, soften and add sheen.
Oontanga Oil: This is oil made from African watermelon seeds, and it’s loaded with essential fatty acids that stops your hair from breaking and makes hair shiny.
Camellia Seed Oil: This oil comes from Korea and permeates the hair shaft to restore vibrancy and strength. It also softens your hair and keeps split ends and breakage at bay.
Argan Oil: This is a conditioning oil that seals the cuticle, adds shine, and makes hair more manageable during the styling process.

Note: Because this treatment is so oil heavy, we recommend restricting usage to your ends, which is where most breakage and split ends occur anyway.

Coconut Oil Hair Mask Recipe:

Step 1
Combine two tablespoons of liquid coconut oil with 10 drops of each of the other oils and stir well.

Step 2
Apply the oil blend to the ends of your hair and let it set for 10 to 20 minutes before shampooing.

Step 3
Condition and style as normal and repeat once a week for best results.

This recipe makes enough for three weeks of treatment (depending on hair length and thickness). Store in an airtight jar in a dark place. If you place it in the fridge, you’ll need to zap it for 30 seconds to melt it down again.

I really love the Cricket Ultra Smooth Coconut Oil Detangling Brush. If you have fine and/or curly hair its great for coming the conditioner through from your roots to the ends. And it doesn’t pull and rip my hair in the process. If you have very thick hair the bristles might be a bit short to work through without a few passes over your strands.

But if you are looking for a great brush that detangles, fights frizz and adds shine look no further. I use this everyday in the shower and love how gentle it is on my hair and still manages to remove all the tangles.
