DIY Hair Mask
Healthy shiny hair doesn't have to cost a ton of money. There are so many great all natural ingredients out there and you probably have most of them already in your kitchen. Next time your hair is feeling dry or damaged try out one of these hair mask recipes!
Avocado Mask (Looks and smells horrible, but works great!)
1 very ripe avocado
2 tsp of honey
1 Tbs olive oil
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and apply to slightly damp hair. Leave on for 30 min and shampoo as usual. (This might be a good time for lather, rinse, and repeat)
1 very ripe banana
2 tsp honey
2 Tbs coconut oil
2-3 drops orange oil- optional
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and apply to slightly damp hair. Leave in for 30 minutes and shampoo as usual. (I would again recommend shampooing twice as you don't want food particles drying in your hair)
Those are two of my favorite recipes, but you could also whip up a few eggs as a straight protein treatment. You could soften a chunk of coconut oil and apply that directly to your hair for moisture or add just the honey for shine.
