Detoxifying Carrot Coconut Hair Mask 


1 medium carrot
2 Tbsp coconut oil


Finely shred carrot by hand, or put in a blender to break it down. Combine with two tablespoons of coconut oil and mix well, then apply to dry hair. Let set for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse in sink (to keep carrots out of your bathtub drain). Condition and style as normal.
