How To: Make a natural oil mask for damaged hair

Make a natural oil mask for damaged hair

Turn that dry, damaged 'do into luscious locks for less at home.
You Will Need:
* 2 tbsp. olive oil
* 2 tbsp. almond oil
* 2 tbsp. coconut oil
* 1/2 c. lemon juice
* Plastic wrap or a shower cap
* A blow dryer
* A towel
* A vitamin E capsule (optional)

Step 1: Mix ingredients
Combine the olive oil, almond oil, and coconut oil with the lemon juice. Squeeze in a vitamin E capsule for extra conditioning.

Start with clean hair. Dirt and other pollutants can reduce the mask's effectiveness.

Step 2: Smooth onto damp hair
Smooth the mixture onto damp hair with your hands starting at the roots and working your way down to the ends.

Avoid brushing, combing, or over-handling your hair when applying a mask.

Step 3: Encase hair in plastic
Encase your hair in plastic wrap or a shower cap. Use a blow dryer to help the mask penetrate the hair cuticle.

Step 4: Wrap and set
Wrap a towel over the plastic and allow the mixture to set for one hour.

Step 5: Rinse and shampoo
Rinse hair with warm water. Shampoo and condition as usual. Do a final cold water rinse for super shiny, well-conditioned locks.

Step 6: Air dry hair
Air dry your hair to seal in the effects of the mask and prevent damage from harsh blow drying.

Fact: Blonds have the most hair, with about 140,000 strands per head. An average head of hair contains only 100,000 strands.
