Salon hair spa gives your hair a temporary life and might cost you more than you mean to spend. Do try this DIY spa/treatment which costs nothing and works like a charm!
Lets begin now
How to Make :
Firstly, we need grated coconut. One whole coconut or depending upon the length of your hair. I have shoulder length hair and I need one whole coconut. once its grated ,run it in the mixer to make a paste. Now take a muslin cloth and squeeze the paste to extract the milk out of it. now take a sauce pan pour this milk into a sauce pan and heat it on a low heat while stirring it the whole time until the consistency becomes thick. once it’s done, it’s ready to be applied to your scalp and along the length of your hair.
I personally feel applying little warm solution works better. If you wish to add yogurt ,you can add 3 tbs. After the application cover your hair with a shower cap. This helps the hair absorb the goodness of the coconut milk and opening up the pores hair follicle. Leave for about an hour or two..then wash it off with mild shampoo.
You can also make extra mask solution and store it in a freezer to use next time.As always, a one time application will not be enough.Make sure you use this regularly!
