DIY Beauty | Organic Coconut + Mint Deep Conditioner

Ever tried a Coconut Oil Hair Mask? Gurrrl, what are you waiting for?!?

I’d first heard about using coconut oil in my hair back in my early teens, when I’d met a group of girls from Dubai at a skating competition. These girls had ah-mazingly shiny + gorgeous hair, + totally swore by it! So, if you’re looking for something calm, cool + collected for your dry, frizzy hair, this is a must try, DIY! The Organic Coconut Oil will hook you up with soft, silky locks, while Organic Peppermint Essential Oil helps soothe your scalp.

 What You’ll Need


  • The amount of either oil will really depend on the length of your hair.
  • You may have to shampoo really well a few times to get all the oil out.
  • You may not have to condition your hair at all!
  • Your shower can get slippery, so be careful!
  • Always use the highest quality of fresh, organic ingredients when possible.


  1. Start by scooping about ¼ of a cup of coconut oil into the mixing bowl (adding more or less, depending on the length of your hair).
  2. Add Peppermint Essential Oil + Mix.
  3. Massage the mixture into your scalp + work it through the ends of your hair.
  4. If your hair is long enough, tie it up + cover with Shower Cap for at least an hour, leaving on as long as possible.
  5. Shampoo your hair really well, repeating if necessary until the oil feels like it’s gone.
  6. Condition as usual, but you may not have to.

    Mmmhh.. how wonderful! I’ve been experimenting with leaving coconut oil in my hair overnight and have been loving it. It would be fantastic and uplifting to add a few drops of peppermint.

    I need a sisterly kick in the %^R*^&^&% because I still miss the keratin hair treatment I did a few years ago. Do you suggest this mask weekly or is there a product like a keratin hair treatment? I don’t like my curls (they are only soft). I prefer straight hair on me.

      It really depends on the feel of your hair + the condition of your scalp. You can do it as frequently as you’d like though. I do it about once or twice a month. A keratin treatment is like a perm that straightens your hair + they’re pretty much all toxic… so I’m not sure of anything that would would work like that without being harmful. Once I switched to more natural hair products, I didn’t have to wash my hair as frequently – so straightening my hair wasn’t as bad, since it lasted longer. A good heat treatment is Acure’s Leave-in Conditioner though! XO <3
