DIY: Hair Mask for Dry, Damaged Hair
Do you easily get hair breakage? Is your hair coarse and lacks moisture? Chemicals and natural factors such as heat, wet and wind cause dry, damaged hair. Everyday shampooing also strips the hair and scalp from its shine and natural oils. However, don’t fret because we just might have the solution. Here is a do-it-yourself, natural hair mask that will add moisture and shine to your dreary locks.
The ingredients are:
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup raw honey
If you have longer, thicker hair, just fiddle with amount of each ingredient to get the homemade mixture from roots to tips.
Mix all of the ingredients. The egg will add shine to your hair. It has vitamins A, D and E that is common to prevent hair loss and split ends. Coconut oil strengthens and gives the hair the gloss it needs. It is also a great hair softener because of the healthy fatty acids present in it. Olive oil exfoliates the strands and keeps the color intact. Apple cider vinegar (not any type of vinegar) balances the hair and scalp pH, as well as, prevents hair loss and thinning. It also removes product build-up which is one of the causes of dandruff and scalp itching. Honey also traps in moisture in the hair. It is also an emollient, which means that it softens and adds luster to your strands.
Step 2Apply the mixture on your newly shampooed hair.
Step 3Let it sit for at least half an hour.
Step 4Rinse the mixture off and style as you wish.
This hair mask will add moisture to dull, damaged hair especially if done every once a week. And because it’s all natural, you won’t have to worry what chemicals you’re getting your hair into.
