Today I am sharing 3 DIY Hair Mask for different types of hair. We all have some kind or another issue with our hair. Too dry, too oily, or to dull. The list goes on and on. And the hair product industry makes quite a pretty penny because of it.
But you really do not need to spend that much on products to help you getting your hair back into shape. Because you probably have already the things you need to make the DIY Hair Mask on hand. So let’s begin
DIY Hair Mask for dry and/or frizzy hair
What you need:
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1 Tbsp oil – the best would be coconut oil, but any will do
- 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
Mash up Avocado in a food processor until smooth, add coconut oil and combine, mix in the mayonnaise. Massage into hair, concentrating on your tips. Leave it in for 30 minutes. Wear a shower cap for best results (or go old school, with a grocery bag 😉 ) Shampoo and condition as usual.
DIY Hair Mask for oily/greasy hair
What you need
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp salt
- juice of one lemon
- 1 Tbsp honey
Mix everything together, apply to hair, concentrating on the scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse out with cool water. Shampoo and condition as usual.
DIY Hair Mask for shiny hair
What you need:
- 1/2 cup water (or more depending on length and thickness of hair)
- 1 Tbsp (per 1/2 cup water) vinegar
Dull hair is caused by product build-up, which the vinegar breaks done. Mix together, pour over hair, comb through hair to help distribute. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse. Try to avoid shampooing after, if you can handle the vinegar smell.
- Brush hair before washing – not if you are curly, just detangle with your fingers
- Shampoo on scalp, conditioner on ends – very important if you have oily hair
- final rinse with cold water – this will close the cuticles, and gives extra shine
- pat dry, do not rub! Ideal would be cotton (like an old T-shirt) because that will reduce frizz
- Do NOT brush while wet – this can cause split ends and breakage. Hair is the weakest when fresh out of the shower. Give it some time to air dry a bit before combing
- If you have to brush it wet, only use a wide tooth comb
I personally use the DIY Hair Mask for dry hair every couple of weeks, and I swear by it! My hair never felt softer and looked smoother before! In combination with the Hair care tips, my hair is in pretty good shape. Despite lots of coloring and bleaching!
So go ahead, raid your pantry and fridge! And emerge with the best hair ever!
