Maple Syrup Hair Mask

Maple Syrup Hair Mask
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Lard (you can nix this if you don’t have any on hand)
  • Honey
  • Wide-toothed comb
  • A shower cap or Saran Wrap


Mix 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup (always better on pancakes than Aunt Jemima’s so it’s good to have on hand for breakfast, too), 2 tbsp lard (if you don’t have this, simply use more maple syrup instead), and 1 tsp honey in a bowl.
Microwave for 15 seconds or until mixture is melted enough to stir together.
Let cool enough to touch.
Apply mixture to hair, combing through to ends using a wide-toothed comb.
Put hair in a plastic shower cap (or Saran Wrap).
Find something to do for 20 minutes that involves not leaving your house.
Rinse in the shower and shampoo.
