PONY-O Ponytail holders: DIY Candy Cane Clarifying Mask

Here’s another DIY hair hack from PONY-O hair ties.  Get healthy, shiny hair any time of the year without breaking the bank!

Hard water and hair care products like dry shampoo, gels, hairspray, even your regular shampoo and conditioner, leave residue and traces of film on your hair every time you use them. Over time, this buildup can cause your hair to look dull and lifeless. Waxes, butters and oils are water-resistant, so even when you wash your hair, there is still a trace of buildup left behind.

To remove the product buildup, you should use a clarifying mask once, if not twice, a month. Don’t overdo it though, because that will have the opposite effect, actually stripping your hair of its natural oils.

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to make a DIY Candy Cane Clarifying Mask to remove impurities, product buildup and give life to your hair. (Want more detail? Click to watch the video

Step 1: Grab a shot glass 😉

Fill a shot glass (you have one, right?) with water, preferably bottled or distilled. Add 4 drops of peppermint essential oil (not peppermint extract) to the water and give it a stir. You can get peppermint oil from your local natural health store or on Amazon.  

Step 2: Slowly Pour

Next, slowly pour the peppermint-infused water onto your scalp, a little at a time, working it in as you go.

Step 3: Work It In

Now continue to gently massage the mixture into your scalp and hair. You should feel a tingling sensation from the peppermint, and this is a good thing! It’s stimulating circulation and restoring its natural pH, which leads to hair growth and a healthier scalp.

Step 4: Put Your Hair Up in Your PONY-O

Secure your hair in your non-damaging and comfortable PONY-O bendable hair ties. If you’re taking the time to clarify and pamper your hair, why tie it up with a damaging hair elastic? Give the mask about 15 minutes to work its magic. HELPFUL TIP: We suggest washing your hands with soap and water after tying it back. You don’t want to get the peppermint mixture in or near your eyes.

Step 5: You’re Done!

That was easy! Shampoo and style your hair as usual. Your hair and scalp will feel rejuvenated and refreshed! You’ll love how much easier it is to style your hair minus all of that buildup, and your hair will also be able to better absorb much-needed moisture and nutrients.
