What it Does:

Coconut oil is rich in essential fatty acids that help revive and replenish stressed tresses. It has a wonderful conditioning effect of the hair when used as a hot oil treatment. Grapeseed oil is rich in vitamin E and polyphenols. It is light and moisturizing on the hair shaft while depositing antioxidants to the surface of the strands. Lemon helps to brighten and tone blonds, while brunettes are renewed with the clarifying botanical, rosemary. The heat and shower cap help to enhance the treatment by infusing and absorbing the mask in your hair shaft.

You can find Coconut oil and essential oils at fine grocers, whole foods and natural supermarkets.
