Smoothing and Hydrating Choco-Mint Hair Masque

Written by Beauty

What do you get when you combine coconut, avocado, raw cacao and peppermint? A ridiculously luxurious hair masque that is as effective as it is indulgent. After a hot summer, it’s safe to assume your hair needs a little loving. This unique combo of superfoods and essential oils leaves hair shiny, soft and hydrated. Never underestimate the beauty that comes from a naturally healthy glow!

Lets explore the superstar cast:

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is a rich source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). The structure of MCTs allows for deep penetration and leaves hair feeling nourished and healthy.

Avocado

The next ingredient in this masque is avocado, which we all know is also full of vitamins, minerals and good fats. The rich oils in avocado protect the hair and hold moisture in. The oils coat and protect the hair, making it feel soft and hydrated.

Peppermint & Cacao

When used on the hair and scalp both peppermint and cacao act to enhance hair growth. As vasodilators, they stimulate circulation, flushing the hair follicles with vitamins and nutrients needed for hair growth.

This superfood combo is perfect for a luxurious spa night. Pour a glass of wine, draw a bath and kick back with this indulgent masque.
