(Helps fasten hair growth and keep hair shiny)
First thing you're going to do is pour in the olive oil. I have really long thick hair so i'm going to be using a bit more than you'd need if you have medium length hair. If thats the case, you can simply measure it out by how much conditioner you usually use and just put double of that! Mine was 6 table spoons.
Next is the honey! I put in four table spoons of honey. Once the two, olive oil and honey are poured into the bowl you're going to want to mix it A LOT! Until it becomes a chunky consistency. If its too watery you can add more honey, and if its too sticky, add more olive oil. If you don't want to add the orange or coconut oil you can stop here!
So instead of the boring ingredients, I found out that oranges are actually REALLY good for your hair! Citrus fruits have something in them that actually help hair growth when applied to your hair! I would only recommend putting in fresh orange juice in the mask because bottled orange juice has preservatives and other things in it. So, just get about two slices of the orange and just squeeze them in with your hand. I didn't have any regular coconut oil so I used a little from the body shop pan of coconut oil I have. Although, I wouldn't recommend that because i'm not sure how its going to turn out.
The best kind of coconut oil is typically something that looks like this. You don't need to buy this brand in particular, but I just wanted to put an image in your mind of what it should look like if you go out looking for it!
Once everything is mixed up, it should look a little like this. Once you're all done making your mask take it into the shower with you! But make sure to keep it away from the water. Once you shampoo your hair, dry it out a little bit with a towel then put the mask on all over your hair, paying special attention to the ends and roots. Put on a shower cap/plastic bag. Leave it on for an hour, and wash it out and you're done! Your hair should feel and look healthier. Doing this mask on your hair once a week will keep your hair in tip top shape.
