It’s a familiar story. You want shiny, glossy locks worthy of Olivia Palermo on the red carpet, but when you look in the mirror, your ’do is looking distinctly frazzled around the ends. Whether you’ve overdone it on the heat styling or your strands just need a little TLC, queen of DIY at-home beauty hacks Farah Dhukai has the answer to your long-hair prayers. And it’s so simple, there’s only one ingredient that you probably already have in your kitchen. Here’s the perfect DIY hair mask.
Vlogger Farah posted a video on Instagram sharing her super-quick secret for glossy, strong hair. All you need is a can of full-fat coconut milk that you chill for 24 hours, then strain off the water and whip the cream until it’s fluffy. Then, you can channel your Great British Bake Off skills and put it in a piping bag, or if you’re more Mel and Sue than Mary Berry, spoon it into a zip-lock bag and snip the end off. Apply it to unwashed hair like you’re icing a cake, rub it in with your hands and leave it for 10 minutes before washing out. Et voilà, super-shiny hair you can see your face in.

YouTube superstar Farah is clearly a fan of coconuts for keeping her hair in tip-top shape, she’s previously posted a recipe for a coconut oil and cayenne pepper hair mask she claims helps it grow TWICE as fast as usual. That one’s not for the faint-hearted, as the cayenne can cause a reaction, so make sure to patch-test first if you try it.
