Coconut Hi-Gloss Hair Masque


I have a really luxurious and moisturizing hair masque made from coconut oil and coconut water!!! This is perfect for straight, curly, wavy and dry hair types that needs a deep conditioning hair treatment to control frizz!!!

After you wash your hair, give it a quick towel dry and then massage a generous amount throughout your entire hair for up to 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and style as desired.

You will need to keep this in the refrigerator because it does not contain a preservative. Use it within two weeks.

Guess what!!! Mountain Rose Herbs is the BEST place to pick up most of the ingredients. Visit them online HERE


Coconut Hi-Gloss Hair Masque
Makes 7 ounces

1/4 cup coconut oil
3 teaspoons emulsifying wax NF
1/2 teaspoon stearic acid
1/2 teaspoon liquid lecithin
1 teaspoon glycerin
1/2 cup coconut water
1 tablespoon Frontier Co-Op Coconut Flavor **see info below

In a heat-safe glass measuring cup, combine the coconut oil, emulsifying wax, stearic acid and liquid lecithin.

Place the measuring cup in a pot containing a few inches of simmering water.

In another heat-safe glass measuring cup, combine glycerine and coconut water. Place this measuring cup in another pot containing a few inches of simmering water.

Heat both mixtures to a temperature of 160 degrees F. Carefully remove both measuring cups from the simmering water.

Pour the oil/wax mixture into a mixing bowl and begin mixing with a hand-held mixer set to low. Blend the coconut water into  the oil/wax mixture on low for one minute.

Bring the speed up to high and continue mixing for 5 minutes or until the temperature is below 100 degrees F.

Add in the coconut flavor and mix again for another 3 to 5 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a sanitized container. Store in refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.
