5 DIY Hair Masks

Getting into the salon might be harder than usual right now, but there are still some ways to get creative about hair care at home. Nothing nourishes your tresses quite like a hair mask, and even though there are the store-bought products, they aren’t always your best option, making your own is easy! You can throw together one of these mask recipes with ingredients you have around the house. Your hair will thank you!

Dry Hair Will Drink it Up

For this hair mask, you’ll need honey, an egg, and apple cider vinegar to drench dry hair with some much-needed relief. Combine 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with an egg then spread evenly throughout your mane. Then all you have to do is wait 30-40 minutes before rinsing and ta-da! Hair is silky and hydrated. 

Out of Control Frizz and Curls

Even the driest locks will drink up the moisture in this DIY mask. Take ½ cup coconut or olive oil - though if you go for coconut, heat it up a little bit first - and spread evening along the strands. After an hour rinse it out and see how much more manageable frizz and curls are.

Go Bananas for Bright Hair

Try a fruity recipe and have your hair shine all day. You’ll need 1 ripe banana, 1 tablespoon honey, and a single egg. First, peel and freeze the banana so it will create a smoother mask. Blend in the honey and egg then cover hair and sit for 20 minutes before rinsing out.

Let it Grow

A good hair mask is capable of a lot more than just softening hair, mixing up a special recipe can also help add length and encourage growth. Take equal parts cinnamon and coconut oil and massage into your roots. Rinse out in 30-40 minutes. If you apply this mask once a week, it won’t be long until you start to see more length.

A Self Care Must

This recipe is amazing when you want to give your locks some all-around TLC. Add one egg to a bit of yogurt and finish with a teaspoon of honey. Leave the concoction in your hair for 30 minutes. The yogurt will soothe your scalp and calm any inflammation. Sprinkle in a little brown sugar to exfoliate.
