The closest I have got close to using a hair mask is something that I picked up which really suited my hair It also led me to a search on the web looking out for hair masks that can be whipped up right at home with the ingredients available in your kitchen.
Interested? Here are a couple of masks that I zeroed into and would like to try.
What’s more is that these masks are chemical free and they are excellent way to get to your hair moisurised and soft.
Going Eggy with Bananas
Bananas make a wonderful hair mask when you blended it with an egg. Take a banana, blend one egg with it in a mixer. Add three teaspoons of honey and four teaspoons of olive oil. Massage this mix in your hair and let it stay for at least 30 minutes before you shampoo. My only fear with this mask is that I may end up smelling like an egg!
Mix the yolk of an egg with about five tablespoons of yogurt and whisk it till it is frothy. Don’t use a blender, use a fork instead. Apply on your hair for about 30 minutes and wash off with a mild shampoo. This is supposed to be effective in reducing the dandruff.
Mix equal portions of honey and olive oil. Whisk it well. Rub this into your hair. Shampoo after 30 minutes.
Mix about 3 tablespoons of mashed avocado with a teaspoon each of olive oil and honey. Whisk it well and apply this mask for about 30 minutes and wash off with a mild shampoo.
Oatmeal hair mask
I’ve used this as a scrub on my face till now, I had no clue this could be used as a hair mask too. To make this you need one tablespoon of oats. Mix it with one tablespoon each of fresh milk and almond oil. Mix all these ingredients well to make thick paste. Comb your hair thoroughly and apply this on dry hair. Leave it on for about 30 minutes and wash off with a gentle shampoo.
Blend together a two tablespoons of olive oil, a cup of fresh strawberries and one egg yolk in a mixer. Apply this on your hair for about 30 – 45 minutes and rinse it off with a shampoo.
For dry hair use a mix of about 4 tablespoons of yogurt with a tablespoon of almond oil and two tablespoons of honey. Whisk this well and massage it o our scalp for about 5 minutes working it into your hair from root to tip. Leave it on for 20 minutes before you shampoo.
Soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Use just enough water to soak it. If you have taken about 4 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds, soak it in the same amount of water. Grind the seeds to a fine paste the next morning and apply it to your hair. Keep it on for about 30 minutes. Wash off with a mild shampoo.
