Coconut Hi-Gloss Hair Masque

Picture this: a sumptuous, ultra-hydrating hair masque, whipped up from the tropical elixir of coconut oil and coconut water. It's a veritable hair feast, perfect for every hair type known to humankind - be it straight as a runway, curly as a corkscrew, wavy like the ocean or parched and frizzy from the battle against your hairdryer!

Once you've scrubbed the day off your hair, give it a brisk rub with a towel and then lavish it with this coconutty concoction. Massage it through your hair like you're a seasoned hair therapist for a good 15 minutes. Rinse it out with warm water, and voila! You're ready to style your hair in any way you fancy.

Now, this little pot of gold doesn't have a preservative, so it's best to store it in the chilly confines of your refrigerator. Use it up within two weeks, or it might start giving your leftover pizza some competition in the smell department!

And guess what? The best spot to pick up these hair-transforming ingredients is Mountain Rose Herbs. It's the supermarket equivalent of a treasure trove for any DIY beauty aficionado!
