How to Make Your Very Own Hair Mask!

A girl's hair can make a difference on how she presents herself. Some style their hair by curling, straightening, crimping, dying, perming, relaxing, and I can go on and on about this. Some use a lot of product such as hair spray, hair gel, mousse, anti-frizz, gel, wax, and again I can go on and on about this! But some, all they do is wash their hair and comb it but their hair is still dry or unmanageable! This could be because they don't take in enough vitamins in their body, hence their hair also lacks the vitamins it needs to give the hair its luster. In this issue, I will show you an easy and extremely reliable way to gain your hair's softness and shine!


  • Deep conditioning cream or your regular conditioner
  • Coconut milk
  • Something to mix with (spoon, teaspoon, blunt knife, etc.)
  • Shower cap
  • Hair clip or hair tie
  • Blow dryer (optional)


  1. Gather all the ingredients needed. For the deep conditioner, you can use a product that you already have that doesn't work for you or your favorite conditioner. If you just bought and new conditioner, you may need a separate bottle since we're going to add on to that. The coconut milk can be bought in any grocery store, especially if they have an Asian section. The milk may come in a box or a can, and is really cheap!
  2. If your using a new conditioner, pour it in a separate bottle about half way; if not, then just open up your conditioner.
  3. Shake the can or bottle of your coconut milk really well before opening it, but if you already did just stir it with a spoon.
  4. Now, combine your  ingredients! Pour the coconut milk into the bottle with your conditioner a little at a time. You want a consistency that is similar to a cake batter or a runny regular conditioner.
  5. Mix your batter or shake it, making sure that the conditioner on the bottom of the bottle is also mixed in with the rest.

  1. Apply the mixture into a clean, damp hair just the way you would your regular conditioner. Remember to focus on the tips of your hair since this is the part that gets the least vitamins.

  1. Comb your hair out to ensure that every part of your hair is covered with your brand new hair mask!
  2. Gather your hair in a bun with a clip or a hair tie and cover it with a shower cap.
  3. If you want the best result, blow dry your hair that's in the shower cap for 15 minutes. If you don’t want to blow dry, leave it in for about 30 minutes. If you just want a quick pick me up, you can leave it for 5 minutes, it really depends on how soft you want your hair to be.
  4. Keep the mixture in the fridge if you have any left overs and use it again when needed
  5. Rinse your hair thoroughly and style as usual!
  6. Enjoy your soft and silky hair!

I posted a video of this on YouTube and I'm going to try to add it in here as well. I hope how-to instruction helped you out!
