Five DIY Hair Masks For All Hair Types
Here are five easy hair masks one can whip up with products that are lying around in your kitchen.
Egg and Mayonnaise Hair Mask
- 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 2 eggs
- Add a teaspoon of vinegar or olive oil for extra shine if you have coarse hair
Leave the mask in place for 20 minutes and then rinse your hair completely with warm water. And wash with shampoo. Apply the treatment once or twice a week.
This hair mask uses only two simple ingredients: eggs and mayo. They are known to be a powerful combination for dry hair. The oil found in the mayonnaise will deeply moisturize hair and give it its shine back. The egg serves as a cleaning agent as well as sealing in moisture to your hair. The egg, specifically the yolk, can cut through grease and dirt found in hair to make it clean.
Cinnamon and Coconut Oil Mask
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Let this mask sit for 30-45 minutes and then rinse with your shampoo and conditioner. This mask is best and most effective if used once a week.
Coconut oil is known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties while cinnamon has antimicrobial properties that help your hair grow, helps with dandruff, hair loss, and strengthens your hair follicles as well. If you're looking for longer hair, this is the hair mask for you.
Yogurt and Honey Mask
- 2 tablespoons natural yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey
Leave the mask on for 15 -20 minutes and wash as normal. Do this treatment once a week to restore and maintain your hair.
If you have dry, frizzy and brittle hair, this will be one of your go-to hair masks. The fat from the yogurt will help moisturize and cleanse your scalp. Honey acts as a nourishing ingredient for your hair. The honey will seal in the moisture in your hair to keep it conditioned, which will reduce hair breakage and split ends.
Lemon Juice and Egg White Mask
- 1 egg white
- Juice from half a lemon
Leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Once you have rinsed your hair, use shampoo and conditioner as you would normally do.
If you are prone to greasy hair, an egg mask can work wonders. Egg white hair masks can be used to attain healthy, thick, long and shiny hair.
Aloe vera, Coconut Oil and Honey Mask
- 2 teaspoons of fresh aloe vera gel
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 3 teaspoons of coconut oil
Let it rest for half an hour and then wash with shampoo. This mask will deep condition your dry and dull hair adding moisture and bounce.
Aloe vera is known to be a wonderful ingredient for deep conditioning hair. It promotes hair growth, prevents an itchy scalp and reduces dandruff.
