Coconut Oil Hair Mask for beautiful, healthy tresses!


In case you have not heard of the great benefits of coconut oil, allow me to fill you in! You can cook with it, use it for it's healing properties (including improving digestion and immunity against a plethora of infections and diseases), and it is also good for healthy skin and hair!



Good to hair? Umm, heck ya! Coconut oil helps in healthy growth of hair and gives your hair a shiny quality. You can use regular coconut oil as a hair conditioner, however, it can be greasy. Anytime I have tried, I have to wash my hair once or twice before I can style as usual. To me, the double washing is sort of defeating the purpose.

I recently got the opportunity to review an amazing coconut oil hair mask, by First Botany Cosmeceuticals. The main ingredient is Coconut Oil, but it also contains Ginger Extract, and Rosehip Seed Oil, with Vitamins like E and B5. It is a special combination to create the perfect hair conditioning mask, without leaving your hair greasy! I have naturally curly hair and always blow drying and using a flat iron can be very rough on it. I often notice split ends and frizz. Ugh. Two things I really hate. This product is Sulfate free and Paraben free, and made with natural ingredients so it is safe for all hair types. I used this product for the first time this week...



Now wait a minute! Before you scroll down any further and see  my weird photo, let me explain! This is my secret to deep conditioning.

Yes, you can apply the hair mask while in the shower, and let's say shave your legs or something while you leave it on for 5 minutes or so. Then just rinse it out and be done with it. That will work just fine. But, what I find to give a really amazing deep conditioning?

This is what I do...


I take a shower and apply the coconut oil hair mask just before I'm ready to get out of the shower. Squeeze access water from your hair so that it is not dripping wet. Dry yourself off as you normally would and put on a robe. Then, take a plastic bag, like the kind you get from a grocery store, and use it to wrap your hair up in. The heat that naturally comes off of your head will be held in by the plastic bag and this heat increases the conditioning power. You can also wrap a towel on your head, over the plastic bag. Yes, you look a bit silly, but it is only for a few minutes. I left the plastic bag on for 15 minutes, then just rinsed out my hair by leaning over the tub. (no need to hop back in the shower this way)

Ok, now that I have explained why it is that I am wearing a plastic bag on my head, I can share the picture...pardon the lack of make-up as well. As I said, I had just gotten out of the shower. The plastic bag thing is probably distracting enough to cover up the no make-up thing anyhow, lol. Ahh, what we do for beauty, right?


This deep conditioning mask left my hair feeling soft and silky. I really enjoyed the light coconut scent as well. I noticed that my hair was easier to style, less frizzy, and no need for use of additional products. It looked and felt healthy and amazing without having to do another thing!

I would recommend this product to anyone who needs some extra conditioning for their tresses! A big thank you to the First Botany Company for allowing me to try their product! If you are interested in trying their Coconut Oil Hair Mask for yourself, visit this link!

  8. I have tried a coconut oil hair mask. I only thought that my results were ok. Personally, I thought it took a lot of effort but it DID smell really nice! I prefer a Aragan Oil hair mask. I have been able to achieve much better results for my hair.

  9. Yes, I'm also a fan of Coconut oil and use it mainly as a skin moisturizer and I can only say how fab it is. It leaves my skin super soft especially in areas that are normally extra dry like elbows and knees. I must try it on my tresses as your hair looks amazing in the final photo.

  32. Coconuts abound in the Philippines- we drink the water of young coconuts bec. it help the kidneys, and eat the coconut meat. And for mature coconuts, we extract the cream (milk), and use it for cooking or creamer for deserts.

    And out of the same cream, we extract the oil after applying heat. Indeed it's being used by our women either as simple conditioner or as "hot oil" by wrapping their hair with either a towel or or a plastic cap - Sonnie
