Get the most divine DIY hair treat­ment

As the cold weather sets in, the mois­ture is sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced and that means your hair dries out far more eas­ily.

Add to that the stress that hair straight­en­ers, dry­ers and curl­ing wands can add to the con­di­tion of your hair, and your win­ter locks are cry­ing out for a lit­tle TLC.

Us­ing a deep con­di­tion­ing treat­ment once a week over win­ter is a great way to give your hair a break.

This helps re­store mois­ture taken out by in­door heat­ing in your work­place or home, as well as the dry, cold win­ter air.

Our tip is a co­conut milk and olive oil treat­ment.

Au nat­u­ral, this is sim­ple to cre­ate and ef­fec­tive.

The co­conut milk fills up hair strands with pro­teins and adds mois­ture from roots to ends, mak­ing it per­fect for dam­aged hair or split ends.

The rich, fatty acids of the olive oil work to lu­bri­cate hair strands in­di­vid­u­ally and helps strengthen them against break­age.

It’s a very oily sub­stance how­ever, so re­mem­ber to stick to the mea­sure­ments.
