Not only is coconut a source of healthy fat and antioxidants and tastes delicious, but did you know you can make a DIY hair mask recipe that will work to repair your hair, stimulate growth and leave it feeling smooth and shiny!
Armen Adamjan shares an easy recipe that will transform your hair and have it look and feel its healthiest. First, grab a hammer and a screwdriver to make holes in the eyes of the coconut. Drain the coconut water and save it for later. Next, using the hammer, gently tap around all sides of the coconut until a crack starts to form. Remove the meat, and chop up half of the coconut meat into smaller chunks. Blend the coconut chunks with hot water and one teaspoon of black pepper until it forms a thick mixture.
Armen claims that this hair mask is super powerful at preventing hair loss and stimulating new hair growth! All you need to do is apply it onto your scalp and let it sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing it out.
You can drink the leftover coconut water or use it to water your plants! Coconut has been used in traditional cultures for thousands of years, both as an important source of nutrition and to treat a variety of diseases and health problems. Coconut water contains antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, anti-cancer properties, cardiovascular health benefits, improves digestion, nutrient absorption, intestinal health, supports the immune system, and so much more.
