DIY Hair Mask for Shiny, Residue-Free Hair

I tried out this fantastic hair mask that left my hair incredibly soft, shiny and best of all, residue free. All you need is two simple ingredients which can be found in your kitchen.

DIY soft shiny hair mask


Step one: Pour apple cider vinegar (if the smell is too overwhelming, dilute it with some water) over your hair and scalp, coating completely. Ring it out and allow it to air dry. 

Step two: After your hair has dried, liberally apply coconut oil from scalp to ends. Cover your head with a shower cap and allow to sit for at least a few hours, or ideally overnight. 

Step three: Wash you hair with warm water, shampooing twice. 

Step four: Dry your hair as usual, enjoying your new soft, shiny locks. 

I did this with Kiddo2 who had a layer of cradle cap on her head which was impossible to remove (she's got incredibly thick hair), but after this treatment her scalp was clear, and her hair was beautifully soft and shiny.
