Coconut oil can do it all: It moisturizes, heals minor cuts, removes waterproof mascara and even makes a killer popcorn topper. Blend this emollient with shine-inducing honey and the result is an incredible deep conditioner, says Eva Scrivo, hairstylist and owner of the Eva Scrivo Salons. Try her recipe:

Ingredients
3 tablespoons coconut oil at room temperature
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons neem oil
3 tablespoons amla oil

Directions
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Using your fingers, apply the mask to dry hair from roots to ends and use a banana clip to put up the whole mess. Drape a towel over your pillow to protect it (or don a shower cap) and go to bed. In the morning, wash your hair—rinsing with water won’t be enough to remove the honey, so use shampoo. Repeat once a week. Relish your now-silky, Gisele-esque hair!
