Pumpkin Coconut Hair Mask

Pumpkin Coconut hair mask for a smooth shiny hair

Pumpkin: Behold the power of pumpkin. This superfood is packed with antioxidants, beta-carotene (a red-orange pigment that converts to vitamin A when consumed), vitamin C and E, magnesium and potassium. Vitamin A moisturizes and soothes hair and vitamin C repairs damaged hair and skin from overexposure to the sun and environment. Altogether, pumpkin promotes radiant, healthy skin and hair.

Coconut Oil: I dare say that this is the mother of all moisturizers!

Honey: Bring on the shine. Honey is a humectant, which means it naturally attracts moisture. Like pumpkin, it is loaded with antioxidants that help restore shine to dry hair.

Ingredients
Makes 4-5 treatments.

  • 1 can of pumpkin puree (or 1 ½ cup of pureed fresh pumpkin strained)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey

Directions
*Note: This gets messy so wear an old shirt.

In a mixing bowl, add contents of 1 can of pumpkin puree, 2 tbsp of honey and ¼ cup of coconut oil and mix together with whisk or egg beater.

The pumpkin hair mask should have the consistency of a conditioner. If it is too watery (depending on the amount of water remaining in the pumpkin puree), add more pumpkin puree to thicken it.

Section hair out in workable pieces; 3-4 sections may be required depending on thickness and length of hair.

Apply pumpkin hair mask to damp hair beginning at the ends and working your way up to the roots. You can apply mask to dry hair, but I find the application process to be easier when hair is damp.

Tie hair up and cover with shower cap.

Let hair mask sit for 20-30 minutes.

When you’re ready to remove mask, shampoo, condition and style hair as usual. You will notice your hair is softer and shiner.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life!

All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement.

In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important.

The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs.

I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
