It’s day 30 of my writing challenge (more like 30 posts within 60 days but here we are!), and I’m excited to end on a high note with a self-care post. I first learned about #maskmondays from YouTuber and curly hair beauty guru, @MzBiancaRenee. The concept is that we should be deep conditioning and exfoliating our hair and face at least once a week with face and hair masks, hence “mask Mondays.”
As @MzBiancaRenee points out in one of her videos, Mondays can be rough, and most people don’t make social plans on Monday, so why not make it a self-care day?
What You Need
You can create a super simple one from coffee grounds, as I mention in a previous post. Or if you want one ready made, check out 100% Pure’s Hydrogel Face mask in Caffeine Restorative (can you tell I like coffee?). They also have other types, such as Green Tea or Ginseng.
You can either use a deep conditioner, such as Shea Moisture’s Deep Treatment Masque or DIY mix with coconut oil and essential oils, such as lavender, peppermint or cedar-wood to promote hair growth.
The Bottom Line
#MaskMondays is an easy way of giving your face and hair a deeper cleanse and incorporating self-care into your lifestyle. And don’t limit yourself, if you have a basin you can soak your feet in Epsom salt or do a full body moisturizing treatment with coconut oil. The point is to carve out some time in your busy life for you.
