To follow up on the post about the most important hair routine, Hydrating/Moisturising, I thought it would be only fair to bring another hydrating mask.
I had mentioned the Chocolate mask on the post, so I figured that if people like chocolate, they might also like coffee. Or maybe if you want your hair smelling a bit different, like coffee, this mask is for you. Another mask I have already shared with you guys is the Milk & Honey mask.
Now before I give you the ingredients, coffee is considered to be a naturally hair dying agent. Meaning that your hair might became slightly brown or stained if you use it. If you are blonde right now, you might want to be careful with this mask.
I have done this mask lots of times. Both when my hair was not dyed, so completely black and now that it is honey-coloured as well. When it was natural black, the shine was incredible, with hints of brown under the light. And now that it is honey-brown, the colour pops out at you even more, with incredible shine of course.
Do not worry about the brown after effect because it goes with everytime you wash. It did go on both occasions, both black and brown hair. But I cannot say the same for blonde hair. I have never experimented on blonde hair, so I cannot say if the stain will go or will stay for a long period of time.
This mask is guaranteed to bring you:
- Coffee fragrance
You will need:
- 4 tablespoons of sugar (brown preferably)
- 1 tablespoon of granulated coffee
- 1 tablespoon of honey/olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of your hydrating mask
Like most masks, you apply it the same way. Wash your hair first with shampoo to open your cuticles and rinse off. Apply the prepared mask and let it sit for 40 minutes. Later on rinse off the mask and apply the conditioner to close your hair cuticles. Seal it all with your leave-in and hair cream.
P.S: If your hair is very thin, try not to insert sugar into the mix. Sugar acts as an exfoliant. If you exfoliate thin hair, it might become even thinner which will later on cause breakage. Rather go with just honey and olive oil then.
Would love to know if you guys try it out and receive any comments on maybe another coffee mask.
