After months of staying home and staying safe apart, you’re probably craving an appointment with one of our hairstylists. From split ends to dryness—the quarantine has really done a number on our hair. While we can’t open our salon doors just yet, now’s the perfect opportunity to try making your own DIY hair mask. Hair masks are a highly effective way to take care of your hair from home. And luckily, you can find everything you need in your own kitchen pantry!
Honey, Egg, & Apple Cider Vinegar Mask
If your hair is feeling a little parched, this DIY mask makes for a wonderful hydrating treatment that nourishes and provides shine without looking greasy. Simply combine all of the ingredients (honey, egg, and apple cider vinegar) in a small bowl and leave in for about 30-40 minutes before rinsing with water.
Ingredients: 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
Brown Sugar & Olive Oil Mask
The heat can sometimes leave your hair feeling depleted and dried out. Not to worry! Brown sugar is a great natural exfoliant for the hair that cleanses your scalp and removes any other leftover buildup. Mix the ingredients and leave in for 15-20 minutes and rinse well with water.
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Egg & Lemon Hair Mask
You’d be surprised at what an egg can do for your hair. Egg whites have natural protein enzymes that work to fight excess oil buildup in your hair. Combine the ingredients together and apply to damp/slightly towel dried hair. Leave on for 30 minutes to an hour. In this case, the longer is better! Then rinse with lukewarm water (avoid hot water if possible).
Ingredients: 1 egg white, juice from half a lemon.
Banana, Yogurt, & Honey Hair Mask
Is your hair in need of some deep conditioning? This DIY treatment is full of natural oils, potassium , and vitamins from the banana, which help lock in some much desired moisture. Blend the ingredients together until smooth and apply to damp hair. Leave on for 30-40 minutes and shower off with your usual shampoo and conditioner.
Ingredients: 1 sliced banana, 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey.
Avocado, Egg, & Olive Oil Mask
Packed full of omega-3 and fatty acids, this DIY mask provides some much needed strength and shine for your hair. Gently apply to wet hair – starting at the bottom and working your way up to the roots. To get the most out of this treatment, cover with a shower cap and let it sit from 20 minutes. Rinse out in the shower once finished.
Ingredients: 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and half an avocado.
