Rejuvenating Coconut Oil Hair Mask

This makes enough for 1 head of medium to long hair. Add more or less of the oils depending on hair length and thickness. Coconut oil moisturizes the scalp and hair, while the olive oil conditions them. The gelatin is rich in protein, so it's very reparative to the hair, which is mainly made of protein itself.

3 tablespoons organic virgin coconut oil

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 packet (2.5 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Apply to entire head of dry hair. (Dry hair is key for better absorption.) Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. (Warning: It will be messy and may drip, so don’t sit or stand where the oil could stain. You can also put on a shower cap to contain the oil and create a warming effect.) Shampoo and condition hair as usual.
