The Melted Snowman Christmas Hair Mask

Our first mask is super creamy and super easy, it is our coconut milk ‘melted snowman’ hair mask. All you will need for this mask is some coconut milk, honey and castor oil. This mask will help to melt away the effects of winter and will soften and repair your hair. So let’s get into it:

If your mask is really runny, you might want to add a teaspoon of cornflour just to act as a thickener so the mask becomes more of a paste and you can move about with it in your hair without your melting snowman melting all over your face.
  2. Dampen your hair slightly using a spray bottle and part it into equal sections. You really want to make sure that you detangle your hair and are working with freshly washed hair.
  3. Generously apply the mask to each section and then twist the detangled sections so that your hair is completely coated in the mask.
  4. Once your hair is saturated in the hair mask, you want to put on a shower cap/plastic bag or if you have one, a deep conditioning heat cap to help open the cuticle and let the mask soak in.
  5. Keep it in from 1 hour to overnight and then wash it off with a sulphate free shampoo and lukewarm water.
