Every few weeks I do a coconut oil hair mask to keep my hair moisturized, smooth, and healthy. I have super dry hair so it’s really important for me to keep up this routine to keep my hair soft, and not feeling like a stack of hay haha. So, if you’re like me and have really dry or damaged hair this one-ingredient hair mask will keep your hair feeling silky and smooth! If you are one of the lucky ladies who has thick healthy hair, this is also a great shine booster every once and a while if you want some extra glisten in your beautiful long locks.

Let’s get down to it. This is literally the simplest hair mask ever haha, which is part of the reason I love it so much. We are all busy women, and definitely have more important things to do than fiddle about making a complicated hair mask. Know what I mean??

So, here’s the skinny:

1) Buy some virgin coconut oil. Make sureee it’s virgin. Virgin oil is a higher quality oil that is made of just the pressed fruit without any additives. Aka, it is more natural and all around better for you!

2) Before you go to bed put the lots of coconut oil on the TIPS of your hair. The worst (driest) part of your hair is the part where you should apply the most oil, then work your way up until you have covered all the most damaged parts of your hair. If you put it all over your head (up to the roots) it will take FOREVER to wash out. Trust me, I took one for the team and tried it… just, don’t do it haha.

3) Put your oiled up hair (lol) into a braid and sleep overnight on it. I usually don’t cover my hair with anything because if the oil gets on your pillow it’s actually really good for your skin anyways. 🙂

4) Wash your hair in the morning as usual and enjoy your refreshed silky hair!

This hair mask has worked wonders for me, and I love how simple it is! Doesn’t get much easier than one ingredient LOL! 😉 Give this a go and let me know what you think!!






  1. AGREE!
    I put coconut oil in my hair all the time and it is a lifesaver!
    I heard on the Dr.Oz show (haha my one true source of health knowledge) that coconut oil was bad for you face skin, but I have heard a lot of other reports saying its great.
    I think I need to look further into this!
    Love your thoughts!

    1. I use it for pretty much everything! I would love to also look further into the benefits of using coconut oil on your face 🙂 Great point! Thanks for your comment Kelsey <3

  2. Totally agree- how good is it?! my hair is as soft as a baby chick after I’ve treated it with coconut oil. still tend to do mine during the day though (usually a sunday, where I’m around the house doing chores) and just tie it up & leave it in all day- It still keeps working even if I go for a surf, and most people just assume my hair is wet if I pop out to the markets or anything during the day!

    1. Haha I like your style! I should totally just leave it in during the day and pretend me hair is wet :P. Okay also I just checked out your blog and I am SO jealous that you live in Sydney! I wish I could surf whenever I wanted. Sounds like a dream 🙂 Thanks for your comment Sah!

    1. My hair is super “straw like” (worst haha) but coconut oil MAJORLY helps with that! I find it is always so silky and smooth after I do this hair mask 🙂

  3. My mom used to put it on my hair when I was young and I used to hate it because of the smell, but now (if they have improved the smell), I wouldn’t mind trying it again.
