Self-Esteem

When is it O.K. to Put Food on Your Body?

I’m personally in the camp of the more edible the better, but this post is a little more G-rated than that. Here we’re talking milk & honey hair masques.

Most natural foods have plenty of great health and beauty bonuses, which is why I always go DIY when making hair or face masks. They’re much cheaper, plus you likely have many of the essential ingredients right in your fridge or pantry.

RECIPE:

1 7 oz. container greek yogurt

1 egg

2 tbs honey

1/2 banana

1/4 cup olive oil

4 pumps coconut milk (or other nourishing hair serum)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl or blender to combine. You want the mixture to be as consistent throughout as possible, because you’re going to have to wash it out of your hair later. Next, comb and brush your hair to get out any tangles and separate into sections. Working piece by piece, slather the masque onto your dry hair and comb through. Once you’ve finished covering your whole head with the delicious-smelling milk & honey goodness, slap a shower cap on and sit yourself in front of some good, bad TV for a half hour.

After a half hour hop in the shower and rinse out the masque, using a comb to help. Shampoo once (or twice, depending on your hair texture) and skip conditioning. Comb your wet hair out and style as usual. Your hair should feel supple and glossy and look incredibly shiny. This masque is great for the winter months when your hair can look and feel like straw due to the weather. So slap some milk & honey on that bod and let me know what you think!
