You ever get that feeling when you’re all tired and stressed out from work, and all you want to do is to lay down and get a nice, long massage to calm you down? Well, sometimes, your hair needs one too. And the closest thing to a relaxing massage that you can give to your hair? That’s right: hair masks.
We’ve collected a short list of DIY hair masks for damaged hair that you can do right in the comforts of your own home!
Coconut Oil and Honey Hair Mas
We’ve already discussed the benefits of using coconut oil on hair before, and I’m guessing you already have some idea of how good coconut oil is for your dry and damaged strands. To say it simply, coconut oil is extremely helpful in keeping all your hair’s natural proteins, therefore promoting strong strands. Plus, coconut oil contains vitamin E that helps your hair get detoxed. As for the honey, it has smoothening properties and aids the coconut oil in penetrating deep into your hair shafts.
For a simple DIY hair mask, just mix 3 tablespoons of coconut oil to 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply to your hair in small amounts and leave on for 30 minutes to an hour. Don’t forget to shampoo and condition afterward!
Apple Cider Vinegar and Argan Oil Hair Mask
Apple cider vinegar is one of the best ingredients for DIY beauty hacks. Together with argan oil, apple cider vinegar can deep clean your hair while moisturizing it at the same time. Apple cider vinegar helps remove all the product buildup on your hair, freeing it from all the dirt that keeps it matted and lifeless. Meanwhile, argan oil is an amazing product for if you want to nourish your hair deeply–in fact, argan oil all by itself can be used on dry hair to keep it soft and smooth.
For an ACV and Argan Oil DIY hair mask, mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons of argan oil. Leave it on your hair for about 15 minutes before washing it off.
Egg Yolk Hair Mask
This DIY hair mask is honestly one of my favorites! Eggs are another must-have if you’re a fan of DIY beauty hacks. I usually pair this egg yolk hair mask with a DIY egg white face mask, for maximum use. Did you know that eggs are full of protein and amino acids? They promote strong, healthy growth of your hair and also provides nourishment to your strands. Plus, egg yolk also has vitamin D, which can help lessen hair fall.
To make your own egg yolk DIY hair mask, all you need are two egg yolks and two tablespoons of olive oil. Feel free to use some water to dilute the mixture if you want. Leave it on your hair for 30 minutes before washing and styling as usual.
