Deep Hair Mask
Use coconut oil as a leave-in mask, for at least one hour. For best results, use over night. Do not apply on the hair roots because they will be a bit greasy.
This one sounds very… different let’s say?! Well coconut oil is an efficient deodorant when combined with arrowroot powder, cornstarch, baking soda, and a scented oil.
