Hydrating Homemade Chocolate Mask

Anything better than chocolate, is the smell of chocolate.

Having your hair smell like chocolate? There is nothing better I tell you.

Good morning, afternoon, evening .. wherever you are in the world.

Today I bring chocolate to your hair 😀

I know, AWESOME!

But of course I can’t just tell you to put chocolate on your hair right? I have to explain why. Basically, the chocolate will help bring back the softness, the shine, the curl definition, will reduce that frizz and unnecessary volume, hidrate your hair and of course leave that wonderful chocolate smell.

And guess what? I have two recipes for this awesome chocolate hair mask. Let’s start with the simple one.


  • 2 tablespoons of powdered chocolate (cocoa)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of any hydrating mask
This would be the hydrating mask I use, of course you can use one you like or prefer. From the brazilian brand Novex

You mix all your ingredients into a bowl, preferably using a plastic spoon. Wash your hair like you normally would. Apply your shampoo or co-wash on your scalp and gently massage with your fingers. Only use the foam for the length and ends of your hair. Rinse it off and apply your homemade chocolate mask. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse to finally apply your conditioner and finish with your leave-in.

The second recipe has more ingredients and takes a bit more time.

  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 1 tablespoon full of corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon full of any hydrating mask
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of glycerin (vegetable preferably) or bepantol
  • 1 teaspoon of powdered chocolate (cocoa)
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of any vegetable oil (olive, coconut, avocado, almonds, peppermint, etc.)

Mix well the corn starch with the filtered water. Next add the powdered chocolate to the mix and stir carefully. It’s okay if the chocolate does not dissolve completely, it will do so on the stove.

Take the mix to the stove at medium low, stirring it all the time with a wooden spoon. The more you stir the clear the mix will be, with no bumps. When it reaches a more consistent texture like a soft  paste, remove it from the stove.

Transfer the paste into a bowl and let it cool down. Next mix the glycerin/bepantol, vegetable oil, and the hidrating mask. Apply the mix to your previously shampooed hair. Let it react for 30 minutes, rinse it off and apply your conditioner. Finish it off with your leave-in or curl custard.

Imagine how soft the hair feels right now.

This mask is 100% approved!

Let me know how it goes if you try it out.
