“My hair pretty” was my first sentence. Instead of a first word, I had a first sentence (brag). However, the statement of self-love was odd considering I didn’t have any hair until I was four years old. Perhaps I was fascinated by hair early on precisely because I lacked it.
Odder yet is that I barely do anything with it when it comes to styling or care. I don’t own a blowdryer, my boyfriend trims my hair with kitchen scissors twice a year, I don’t use any styling products, and I maybe curl it once a year. Yeah: “My hair not pretty.”
Regardless, I’ve been experiencing a lot of breakage (from running ponytail) and have decided to be a little more proactive. I’ve turned to DIY hair masks, as I’m more into using natural ingredients than store-bought hair masks.
Here’s my latest concoction:
1 T coconut oil
1/2 tsp. honey
2 T aloe vera
1 T peppermint oil
1 T apple cider vinegar (optional)
1. Mix first 4 ingredients and massage into scalp.
2. Let sit for 15 minutes.
3. Shampoo out.
4. While hair is still damp, if desired, add apple cider vinegar to lock in natural shine.
