New Year, New You Health Challenge #2: Coconut Oil Hair Mask for Thicker, Stronger Hair
It's week two of your New Year, New You Health Challenge…. How is your soft, clear skin feeling from that Matcha Powder Face Mask last week? If you missed last week’s challenge, click here to check it out!
This week we want to focus on rehydrating your hair from the cold winter air and helping you form habits for thicker, stronger hair in 2018.
In order to have truly healthy hair, it needs to be nourished from the outside AND the inside. One way to strengthen your hair from the inside it by taking a natural supplement like our Parker Natural’s Hairvescence.
Your body needs the right nutrients to grow strong, thick hair. But once it starts growing long -- the way you treat it on the outside will determine things like dryness, split ends, and breaks.
Coconut oil is one of the best natural products you can use to keep your hair strong and healthy.
It works differently than other oils and has been shown to be more effective at preventing hair damage than other similar oils including sunflower oil.
Coconut oil is unique because it is able to penetrate hair follicles and prevent protein loss from hair, unlike many other oils that are too heavy to get into the follicles. It can be used in many different forms of hair but our personal favorite is to make a hair mask. It's an easy and effective (not to mention affordable) way to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment.
Here’s how you can make the hair mask:
- Warm up 2-3 tbsps of coconut oil and gently massage it into your scalp.
- Use a shower cap to keep the oil on overnight and rinse the next morning.
- For even better results, you can apply this twice a week. That’s it!
Sounds pretty easy, right?
This simple new hair routine could totally change the way your hair looks and feels this year, especially if you start doing it on a regular basis.
But like we said before, in order to really transform the health of your hair in the upcoming year, you need to approach it from an internal direction as well. There are specific nutrients that accelerate hair growth and really impact the quality and health of your hair. With the right mix of nutrients, you will see a total shift in the look and feel of your hair.
Some of the most important nutrients for hair growth include B vitamins, Vitamin A, and Biotin. Biotin has been shown to improve hair growth and other B vitamins have even been linked to things like early hair loss and greying.
Again, if you want an easy combo of all of the nutrients you need for better hair this year, Hairvescense by Parker Naturals will make improving your hair health a breeze.
