Nourishing Yogurt Hair Mask

Suffering from dull, damaged hair and an itchy scalp? Sunshine, pool chemicals, even shampoos can dry out the hair and scalp.

Each week, I treat myself to a hair treatment.  One of nature’s superfoods is coconut oil.  It is a natural moisturizer that I use on my skin, lips, cracked heels, as an eye makeup remover and, of course, in all my cooking.  Yogurt contains lactic acid that naturally dissolves dead skin cells.  It makes an excellent moisturizer on a dry scalp to help eliminate dandruff.  And, honey is a nourishing emollient that naturally softens the skin and hair.  Combine all 3 and you have a nourishing treatment for your dry scalp and hair.

Yogurt hair

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 1 TBLSP honey
  • 1/2 TBLSP coconut oil

Heat in the microwave for 20-25 seconds until coconut oil is just melted. Alternately, you can warm the ingredients in a small sauce pan over light heat.

Once melted, add to:

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Stir well. Place a towel over your shoulders and begin to comb through the yogurt treatment until all of your hair and scalp are covered.  Gently massage into scalp and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Wash out with shampoo. You may not need conditioner after this treatment.
