The Coconut Hair Mask, A Yummy Miracle!

My sister is utterly obsessed with having super healthy hair, and I'll have to admit with all the experimentally styling/dying I do to my hair I find myself trying to repair damage regularly. So together we came up with a simple affordable hair mask recipe and so far we are both are ecstatic with the results! 
Everyone knows that the coconut is good for almost anything from food to beauty products, but once you mix the oil with a couple other simple ingredients you'll get what my sister and I believe to be a miracle worker!

The recipe: 
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Vitamin E-Oil
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Egg 
Note: The amount you'll need will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair.

Directions:
Add oils and honey, heat in microwave for 10-15 seconds.
Stir.
Add egg, stir.
Your final mixture will look something like this.
Start by applying to the ends working up to through roots. 
Twist up
Cover with shower cap. This is optional, I do it mostly to prevent any dripping.
Leave mask in for 20-75 minutes.
To wash out rinse with warm water and shampoo once, or twice if needed. 
Style as usual to see your new silky smooth hair!

What it Costs (to make 4 treatments): 
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Trader Joe's): $5.99
Egg (Grocery Store): $1.00
Honey (Grocery Store): $3.50
Natural Vitamin E-Oil (Rite Aid): $6.00
Total: $16.49  (for 1 treatment $4.12)
