Heat, air pollution and styling can seriously damage hair, leaving it dry and prone to breakage. Due to this, it’s important to pamper it every now and then with an intensive conditioning mask, to return it to its former glory.
The best ingredient for damaged hair is oil, particularly coconut oil, which is also a great remedy for dandruff. This hair mask combines the wonder of coconut oil with lavender essential oil. That way, you get a salon-like treatment and a relaxing aromatherapy session, too!
