Ever tried a DIY hair mask? They’re customisable according to your hair needs, which we completely love. Combine that with the fact that you can make a DIY hair mask with everyday products that are probably right in your cupboard, these are a sure winner. And since we’re spending a lot more time indoors right now, self-care is top priority and experimentation is a possibility.
Why You Should Use A DIY Hair Mask
It’s no secret, we have our absolute favourite store-bought hair masks, and there is definitely one for every hair need. So why should you choose to make your own DIY hair mask?
DIY Hair Masks Are More Cost-Effective
Because they consist of a few everyday ingredients (that you can customise, depending on your hair needs), a DIY hair mask can cost as much or as little as you want. Just be sure to do your research to ensure you use the right ingredients.
DIY Hair Masks Are Readily Available
Since our trips to the stores may be limited (you know, with #SocialDistancing), going off to buy your favourite hair treatment might not be possible. And chances are, you already have every ingredient you need.
Coconut and Honey DIY Hair Mask
Ready to try the good old DIY home care route with a coconut and honey hair mask? Here’s all you need to know.
For this at-home haircare solution, all you need is coconut oil and honey. Coconuts are truly magical ingredient for your hair as they help you keep hair moisturised and soft. Coconut oil also helps to prevent hair breakage because of its high moisture-retaining capabilities.
As for honey, it’s great if your hair needs an extra boost of moisture. Honey is also an emollient, which helps smooth and soften your hair, bringing back any lost shine.

Tips To Maintain Your Moisturised Hair
For healthy-looking hair, keep up with your regular trims. Also, invest in a wash and care system that moisturises and hydrates locks without weighing them down. And always, always make time for a deep conditioning session.
Lastly, invest in a heat protectant like the TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray that helps shield hair before blow-drying and heat-styling. After all, prevention is better than cure.
