Along with a foot mask, a hair mask is next on the pamper list.
Pampering your hair with Benjamins products is affordable luxury. Take it from us at Tuesday Style Dryer. It's no secret that we love Benjamins Cosmetics range of Jamaican Black Castor Oils, and if you're like us, chances are you have a bottle sitting right in your home.
So far, we've used it to coat our brows and lashes at night as a potent nourishing beauty ritual. But as we prep for Mother's Day we're using the cold-pressed oil as a weekly deep treatment for your hair.
PS: Don't be scared of the stickiness of castor oil — we promise, it washes out just as easily as applying it.
STEP 1: Mix ½ cup of castor oil with one egg in a blender.
STEP 2: If you have thick or coarse hair, divide your hair into 2 sections, then using either a hair colour application tool or your fingers, work the oil into each section starting from the ends, working your way up to your scalp. If your hair is on the finer side, feel free to just use your hands to apply.
STEP 3: Secure in a loose bun at the top of your head. Leave it on for 15-30 minutes. Things can get a little messy, so make sure not to wear your fanciest pyjamas!
STEP 4: Wash with the Benjamins Cosmetics Jamaican Black Castor Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and style your hair as usual.
Note: The castor oil hair mask can be made with any of your fave essential oils for an even bigger vita-boost too!
