It can be tricky to purchase the right hair masks for your hair type. If you don’t want to buy one, you can make your own! You probably already have many of these ingredients in your home already. The following hair masks, plus one that you can purchase easily, can help stimulate hair growth and thicken your hair. These are great options if you are looking for more volume and thickness in your hair.
If you are looking to stimulate hair growth and prevent breakage, try aloe vera. Aloe vera is a great treatment for your skin and your hair! Rub a palm-sized amount of aloe vera gel on your scalp. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and then rinse it out and shampoo as normal.
If your hair has been falling out a lot, you might be lacking protein. Adding more protein to your diet can help, but you can also create a DIY protein mask for your hair. Mix ½ of an avocado, one egg, one tablespoon of coconut oil, and a ½ teaspoon of honey. Apply to your hair and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo to get all of the mask out of your hair. Eggs are the special ingredient because they contain protein and arachidonic acid, both of which stimulate hair growth.
If you need to stimulate hair growth, try a mix of olive oil and ginger. Olive oil is very nourishing to your scalp and can promote hair growth. Adding minced ginger or ginger essential oils can help thicken hair as well. Apply the mixture and leave it on overnight if you want to. Just be sure to wrap up your hair because it will be very oily. Rinse and shampoo as normal in the morning.
Rosemary has also been found to stimulate hair growth. A great mixture is fresh rosemary and nettle tea. Make tea and then remove from heat. Once it has been cooled completely, pour it over your hair and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Then rinse and shampoo.
If you feel you need more volume and to get rid of some excess buildup in your scalp, apple cider vinegar is a great way to naturally heal your scalp and remove buildup. It can also help with oily hair. Combine ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of cooled green tea. Pour the mixture on your hair and you do not need to rinse it out. If you have very light hair, it’s important to test to make sure it won’t dye your hair at all.
Lastly, a mixture of coconut milk and olive oil can help boost hair growth as well. Massage the mixture into your scalp and throughout your hair. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse and shampoo.
