In this post I wanted to share 3 quick and easy DIY homemade hair masks that I personally love! Some of these I had learnt from my family, and some I learnt from reading other blogs and experimenting at home. Sure it can get a little messy :), but the ingredients are not only cheap, but all natural, and helps restore hair vitality and health after all the damage its been through.

1) The Avocado hair mask : 

You will need :

  • 1 egg yolk : Eggs are a powerhouse of protein and other nutrients, that have numerous benefits for hair such as nourishment, moisture, growth, etc
  • A tablespoon of Honey which is super moisturizing and makes dull lifeless hair, more lustrous.
  • A tablespoon or lesser of Apple cider vinegar : This is great for removing any excess oils and grease in scalp and hair and helps restore the natural pH of your hair.

Mash the avocado in a blender, you want it to be pasty and not chunky. The first time I tried this, I didnt choose a very ripe Avocado and I had a hard time trying to remove the chunks while showering! Mix in the rest of the ingredients and apply to your hair and keep it for about 20-30 minutes before showering with regular shampoo and conditioner.

2) The Egg hair mask : 

You will need :

  • 1 egg
  • Olive oil : (preferably hair olive oil or Extra virgin at room temperature) Olive oil is an old tried and trusted ingredient in beauty care. It hydrates hair from within as well as acts as a natural conditioner for the hair.It also nourishes dry/damaged hair, and gives it a healthy glow.
  • A tablespoon or lesser of Apple cider vinegar

Super easy, just whisk all the ingredients and  keep it for about 30 minutes before showering with regular shampoo and conditioner. By far my favorite of these 3 (even though its the most disgusting! oh well, no pain, no gain :)) You can physically and visually see the difference in the feel of your hair! I do this once a month.

3) The Banana hair mask : 

You will need :

  • 1 overripe banana : Packed with vitamins potassium, vitamins, antioxidants and natural oils. It has great moisturizing and strengthening properties and give hair natural bounce and volume.
  • A tablespoon or lesser of honey.
  • 1 glass or lesser of Milk (depending on hair length) : Milk is an elixir of protein; dates back to the days of Cleopatra for use in skin and haircare!

Mash the banana in a blender along with milk and honey, again you want it to be pasty like a thick milkshake and not chunky. Apply to your hair and keep it for about 20-30 minutes before showering with regular shampoo and conditioner.

I would love to hear from you if you plan to try or tried any of these masks! Leave me a comment below.

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

    1. I just used my hands! But I think a brush would be wise. And along the length of the hair should be just fine :). Hope this helps Pri!
