Hair Mask for Dry Hair
Now that you know that there’s still hope for your dry and frizzy hair, it’s time to figure out how to make your own DIY hair mask at home. Luckily, while they can make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your hair, they’re really not that hard to make.
In fact, some hair mask recipes only have a few ingredients, making them super easy and inexpensive to create.
Here is some simple hair mask for dry hair recipes that you can easily try at home.
Hair Mask for Super Dry Hair
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- 2 Bananas (browned)
- 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Combine all the ingredients and mix well (or blend if you don’t want chunks!) and apply to your head. Let sit for 25 minutes and rinse out.
Bananas can help to repair damaged hair and the olive oil and honey will give your hair back its shine.
Moisturizing Hair Mask
- Avocado Oil
Just apply the avocado oil to your hair and let sit for several moments. Once done, rinse out.
The addition of avocado oil to your hair will give it such a great shine.
Avocado is a great “fat” and will give your hair tons of natural moisture.
Honey Hair Mask
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
Take and combine the olive oil and honey together and microwave them for 30 seconds. Stir, cool, and rub into damp hair and scalp.
Cover with a cap and leave on your head for about 20 minutes. Then rinse.
The olive oil and honey provide shine and will lock in the moisture for many weeks to come.
Can you leave a hair mask on too long?
Not really. Since your making your own hair mask with natural ingredients, there’s no real harm in leaving in on your head too long.
The only thing that might cause an issue is that it can leave your hair actually feeling greasy (you’ll go from too dry to too moisturized potentially!). If this happens, you can just shampoo your hair afterwards and it should take away the greasy feeling.
Are hair masks and deep conditioners the same?
Many people think they’re the same, but they’re really not. Deep conditions are meant to really just focus on the conditioning of the hair while hair masks work on shine, strength, and overall health as well.
How often should I do a hair mask?
Those who do a hair mask once per week have found great results. If your hair needs it more than that, then do it more than the one time per week and see how your hair feels after.
