This winter hydration hair mask treatment will protect and moisturize. It's the easiest way to keep your hair healthy all winter long. All you need is a few drops of sea buckthorn oil and coconut oil. You will want to give the oil time to soak in. So, give yourself a few hours to sit at home at do the treatment. Don't try to do it before work in the morning!
1 tbsp of Coconut Oil – this will vary on how long/thick your hair is, if you need more/less go for it!
1) Put coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave it for 6 seconds. Once the coconut oil has melted, add the sea buckthorn oils and blend with a spoon or chopstick. Once mixed, work into ends of hair. Don’t heat the sea buckthorn oils! It’s okay to add them to warmed coconut oil. Pro-tip: You can also just put the oils right into your hand. The coconut oil will melt if you rub your hands together and just start working it into your hair. You can rub the excess oil into your cuticles, nail bed, slather on your neck or any other part that needs a little TLC. Your skin will say thank you. Put that oil to use!
2) Leave oil in hair for as long as you please. You will want to leave this mask in your hair for as long as possible. Leave the mask in for 30-45 minutes at a minimum. You can leave it in for hours if you want to, it’s up to you and how dry your hair is. Optional: To get the moisture deep into your hair shaft, use a blow drier on your oiled ends. You will notice that the oil will absorb into your hair a bit which is a good sign! Extra points if you have a hollow blow-dry hair brush.
Don’t use a flat/curling iron for this. There is a chance you could damage your hair.
3) IMPORTANT- Wash hair as usual. You may be thinking, “huh? If I just spent all this time letting the oils soak in, why should I wash it out?” Shampoo the oil out of your hair because if you don't it will be oily! That's because any oil that isn't absorbed will sit on your hair shaft. At this point the hair mask has gotten as deep into your hair shaft as it’s going to. You can follow up with your normal conditioner as well depending on your hair type. Finer or smoother hair types may not need to condition after the treatment. Dryer or courser hair types may still want to condition afterwards.
