This mask is packed with hair-friendly ingredients! Pumpkin is rich in potassium and vitamins A and C, which are good for your scalp and promote hair growth. Honey gives your hair moisture and shine. Both coconut and jojoba oil are just plain awesome for hair and skin. They can easily be used alone to moisturize and strengthen hair. Honestly, the clove and orange oil are not strictly necessary but they smell so good! Plus, the scents of both orange and clove oils are said to reduce anxiety. Orange oil is also an aphrodisiac. Who doesn’t want the scent of their hair to act as an aphrodisiac?

½ cup canned pure pumpkin
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon organic unrefined coconut oil
