Admit it: you put your hair through a lot. The impact of treatments, over-washing, weather, dyeing, bleaching and so much more can leave your locks desperate for TLC. Dryness, dandruff, grease – whatever issue is causing you stress, it’s possible to give your hair the salon-quality care it needs from your own home. Plus, you can use ingredients you already have in the cupboard. Here are five sumptuous DIY hair mask recipes for a range of hair types and problems.
Ingredients: 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp honey
Coconut oil and honey are wonderfully rich, natural substances that will help your hair retain moisture and prevent breakages.
Ingredients: 1 ripe banana, 1 tbsp olive oil
Bananas contain potassium, which works towards strengthening hair and balancing the scalp’s pH levels, while olive oil is full of vitamin E, which helps heal damage and add sleekness.
Ingredients: juice from half a lemon, 1 egg white
The citric acid in lemon juice will help clean away any buildup of products or dirt, while vitamin C is great for increasing your hair’s strength. Egg whites are rich in enzymes that contribute to neutralising excess oil.
Ingredients: 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp cinnamon
More coconut oil! We can’t overstress its benefits for in-home hair care. Cinnamon helps with cleansing and strengthening follicles, as well as soothing an irritated scalp.
Ingredients: 2 tbsp coconut oil, 4 tsp sugar, 5 drops peppermint oil, 2 drops tea tree oil
Tea tree oil may as well be magic – it’s antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal! The sugar in this mask exfoliates away dead skin cells, while the peppermint oil helps to replenish the skin by increasing circulation to the scalp.
