Winter can wreak havoc on your hair. When spring rolls around, your hair might be feeling dry, damaged, and brittle. So, how can you fix your hair without spending a fortune at the salon? You can try making your own homemade hair masks that can repair your hair and make it soft, shiny, and touchable again.
Here are some of the best DIY hair mask recipes for dry hair:
You will need to mix one cup of pureed strawberries with one egg yolk and three tablespoons of olive oil. The strawberries and olive oil will add moisture back into your strands and the egg yolk contains protein to strengthen your hair. Mix together and leave in your hair for about 20-30 minutes. Keep in mind it may be difficult to rinse out the strawberries, so you may have to wash your hair after a few times after.
For the next mask, you’ll need to mix together one mashed banana, one ripe avocado, and two tablespoons of coconut oil. Let sit for about 20 minutes and then wash your hair as normal. Bananas and avocados help your hair grow and prevent breakage. You can also just use coconut oil on its own for a hair mask to keep your hair hydrated.
If your hair is dry and damaged due to product buildup, try this mask. Mix together ½ cup of plain yogurt, one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of lemon (dilute with water so you don’t lighten your hair), and one tablespoon of honey. Massage it well into your scalp, leave on for only about one minute and then rinse. Easy!
If you have coconut oil, try adding jojoba oil and peppermint essential oil to hydrate your hair and remove dandruff and itching. It will deeply moisturize as well. Just use a few drops of peppermint essential oil. Try two tablespoons of coconut oil, one tablespoon of jojoba oil, and three drops of peppermint oil. You can always tweak these recipes based on your hair length and type too.
