While it’s easier to buy a high quality hair mask, why spend money if you can create your own hair mask using basic ingredients? Without further ado, here are 5 easy-to-make hair masks to help you get those perfect locks.
I’ve also tried few of them and they actually worked for me and this is the reason why I decided to write this article.
Egg mask is a refreshing and moisturizing hair mask that is quick and easy to make. Just beat an egg yolk with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a cup of milk and a squeeze of lemon juice, apply to your scalp and hair and rinse off with cold water after 15-20 minutes.
Eggs are high in protein that helps nourish the roots, potassium that heals damaged hair, vitamin A that helps reduce breakage, and vitamin B12 that promotes the growth of new hair.
If your hair is suffering from styling product buildup or it’s just dull from pollution, try to use yogurt mask to make it shiny again. Massage 1/2 cup (or more if you have long hair) of plain yogurt and one egg, mix them together and slightly damp it in your hair, leave for 15-20 minutes and rinse off.
Then shampoo normally and enjoy a beautiful hair. If you don’t have yogurt, you can use sour cream.
Banana is rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, and potassium, which help regulate your scalp’s oil production and keep your scalp healthy. Blend 2 ripe bananas with a tablespoon each of coconut oil, olive oil and honey. If you don’t have coconut oil you can also try almond oil instead.
Apply to your hair, leave for 5 minutes, and rinse off with warm or cold water. Your hair will look shiny and soft in no time!
Use oatmeal mask regularly if you have dandruff, itchy scalp, and other scalp problems. The great news is that oatmeal hair mask is quick and easy to make.
Just mix a tablespoon of oats with a tablespoon fresh milk and a tablespoon of almond oil or olive oil. Apply to dry hair and leave for about 20-25 minutes before you shampoo.
Honey and olive oil mask
Using raw honey as a hair mask is great, but it’s extremely difficult to rinse it off. Olive oil makes the process easier by loosening the honey.
Moreover, olive oil is good for damaged hair. Depending on your hair length, combine a 1/2 cup honey and 1 to 2 tbsp olive oil and apply the mixture to your damp hair. Leave it for 15-20 minutes and rinse it off with warm and then cold water for a shinier hair. Use the mask every other week.
So, ladies, if you are looking for a budget-friendly and quick way to moisturize and revitalize your hair, these homemade hair masks will definitely help you. These hair masks are easy to make and I’m sure you already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. What’s your favorite homemade hair mask?
