This homemade hydrating hair mask with coconut oil, olive oil and essential oils will make your dry and damaged hair soft, shiny and the healthiest it’s ever been!
This homemade hydrating hair mask is one of the reasons I still have hair. Okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic. But it IS one of the reasons I still have long, healthy hair.
No matter whether I use heat tools or not, my hair, especially my ends, tends to get really dry. I once went four months without using heat tools, it didn’t make a difference.
Now I use them once or twice a week and my hair is still doing really well. In fact, it’s been growing really quickly.

How to use this DIY hydrating hair mask:
To maintain healthy hair, I only wash my hair twice a week. If you wash more, that’s fine. Here’s the trick to using this DIY homemade hydrating hair mask!
The night before you’re going to wash your hair, use your homemade hair mask. Every. Single. Time. Why wouldn’t you?
I do this literally every single time I wash my hair. I usually wash on Sundays and Thursdays, so Saturday and Wednesday nights I’ll apply this, tie my hair up in a knot using an alligator clip and sleep in it. Then just shampoo and condition as normal in the morning.
After a couple weeks of doing this, you’ll notice that your hair is looking amazing. Healthy, with less split ends and fly-aways.
