5 DIY Hair Masks

Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you well. I don’t know about you guys but my hair has been extremely dry and fragile lately, most likely from the combination of summer and bleach… Oopsie. So I’ve made it my mission to find a few DIY hair masks that will improve the integrity of my locks and give me a healthy shine. I know they won’t cure my split ends but hopefully prevent any new ones from making themselves known. I wanted to share some of my favourite masks with you guys so you could try them out as well!

Avocado Mask

1 Ripe Avocado

1 tbls Honey

2 tbls Olive Oil

Instructions: Smash avocado with fork, add honey and olive oil, mix well. Massage into hair and leave it on for 30-60 minutes.

Let me start by saying that I don’t like avocados, the smell and texture really grosses me out so, you can imagine that having smashed avocado all over my head was extremely difficult to handle, I’m literally gagging as I type this out. I will tell you one thing though, this mask really helped with hydrating my hair and left it super soft.

2 Ripe Bananas Mashed

1 tbls Coconut Oil

1 tbls Olive Oil

1 tbls Honey

Instructions: Smash bananas with a fork, mix in remaining ingredients and massage through hair. Leave in for 30 minutes. 

Mmm… This was the best smelling mask, I could have eaten it. This mask was full of healthy fats which gave my hair a nice shine.

 

Dry Scalp Mask

2 tbls Honey

1 tbls Almond Oil (I used olive oil)

1 tbls Apple Cider Vinegar

Instructions: Mix ingredients and massage into the scalp and through the ends. leave on for 30 minutes.

I do not struggle with dandruff or a dry scalp but I know that a lot of people do so I thought I’d give this mask a go for the sake of the post. This mask was pretty much like putting salad dressing in your hair, not very pleasant. As far as I can tell it did help with the brittleness of my ends and hydrated the scalp.

 

Jenny’s Mask

1 tbls Coconut Oil

1 Egg

1 tbls Honey

A few drops of Lavender Oil

Instructions: mix ingredients together and run through hair, leave on for 30-60 minutes. 

Shout out to Jenny for lending me this super awesome recipe. This mask was my favourite, just try not to think of the fact that there is a raw egg smeared all over your head. This mask improved the strength and hydration of my hair, leaving it super soft and shiny.

 

Hot Coconut Oil Wrap

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

1 Damp Hot Towel

Instructions: Get your towel wet (I used a hand towel) and ring it out so it’s not dripping. Roll the towel up like a burrito and put in the microwave until warm. I don’t have a microwave so I wrapped mine in tin foil and shoved it in the oven until it was warm. While the towel is warming up melt your coconut oil on the stove, in the microwave or in the oven, whatever you prefer. Once the coconut oil is melted and hot, lean over the sink or bath tub and pour it through your hair, careful not to burn yourself!!! Then take the warm towel and wrap it around your head. Leave in for 10 minutes and wash out. 

Tried and true! Hot coconut oil?… need I say more? I swear can’t get through a single blog post without mentioning coconut oil.

 

I hope you find this post useful, let me know if you try any of these masks out! Thanks for reading.
