I started the WOHW Method during this challenge, and today I’m on Day 19. One of the best things about this method, are the simple recipes that get BIG results.
You Inspired Me
Since you’ve been with me for the past 30-Days, I wanted to end this challenge with a recipe that was both great for your hair and body!
I have the perfect recipe, but first — here’s a BIG THANK YOU for completing this challenge…
Even though the challenge is over,
I still have some recipes and tips that didn’t make it in.
- Like what I discovered chia seeds do to your skin,
- a homemade butter recipe that will make you stop buying butter foreva,
- and a maca root powder recipe that will improve your love life and grow your hair.
You Up For A Few More Days?
Coconut Cream Hair Mask
The recipe I’m sharing today has 1 ingredient — the Coconut…but this isn’t our beloved coconut oil.
It’s not even the healing, alkalizing coconut water kefir we made last year (during my coconut milk addiction).
Nah, coconut cream is all. you. need.
I’m using Trader Joe’s brand, but any should work just as well.
- adds shine and sheen
- some naturals experience more curl definition and elongated curls
- extreme softness
Since you’ve finished this challenge, I know you’re a Naturalista who is serious about her total health and well-being, who enjoys making her own products.
I’ve been making my own coconut cream and coconut oil for a few months (but I haven’t finished these videos yet:)
Try these from Goddess Michelle’s YouTube Channel, My Invisible Chrysalis. She’ll show you how to make homemade coconut cream, along with a mango ice cream recipe and coconut oil recipe at the end — yes, she has a HOMEMADE COCONUT OIL RECIPE — whaaaaa!
I’ve made coconut cream and oil with this video.
Take a look:
- 1/4 cup coconut cream
- Optional – add one or all 3: 1 tsp aloe vera gel, 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp raw agave syrup
For this recipe, I mostly use it right out of the can. I apply coconut oil to my ends after the wash, plus I’m still trying to feel what my natural sebum feels like. I’m still not really sure, but I think I have some coverage.
With this recipe, I’ll sometimes mix in fresh aloe vera gel (about 1 tsp), but that’s it. It goes on like butter, melts in your hair, and smells great!
- Apply to the ends of your hair.
- Wrap hair in a plastic bag and let conditioner sit for 30 minutes.
- Use indirect heat for a deeper conditioning experience!
- Rinse and style for added shine and awesomeness.
