If your hair is feeling damaged and dry, there are many different masks you can do to put moisture back in your locks. If you love to make inexpensive, DIY masks at home, here are a few recipes. These recipes require several items you probably already have in your kitchen, but they can help repair damaged hair over time.
Try an olive oil and avocado hair mask to help your hair grow, get moisturized, and shine. Blend one ripe mashed avocado, two tablespoons of olive oil, and two tablespoons of honey if you have it. After you blend it, apply to your hair in sections. Let sit for up to 60 minutes and then shampoo and condition.
Keep the olive oil out. If you have eggs and mayonnaise, mix with olive oil to strengthen and moisturize hair. Blend one egg, two tablespoons of mayonnaise, one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey. Apply in sections and leave on hair for up to 60 minutes. Shampoo and condition after.
If you have finer hair, this next mask is for you. Gather two to four tablespoons of coconut oil (depending on how much hair you have) and one tablespoon of honey. Blend and apply to damp hair. Leave on for up to 60 minutes and then rinse, shampoo, and condition.
If your hair is damaged, but still oily, try this mask. Blend ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar with the juice from a lemon, and one tablespoon of honey. Apply to damp hair and leave on for about 30 minutes. Shampoo and condition after.
Another DIY mask includes four egg whites, five tablespoons of almond milk, and two tablespoons of coconut oil. Whisk the ingredients together and apply to damp hair. Leave on for about 45 minutes and then shampoo and condition.
If your hair feels a bit brittle, mix a mashed ripe banana, a tablespoon of honey, and a tablespoon of olive or almond oil. Let sit for up to 60 minutes and then shampoo and condition.
Tip: use a shower cap when you leave on the masks for a mess-free experience. Most of these masks can be left on for 30-60 minutes, depending on your hair type and the time you have.
