DIY Hair Masks

Well ladies I know I have been away quite some time and I apologize. For today's post I will be talking about all things beauty and how better but to talk about HAIR! Whether is putting dye on it, cutting it or just plain treating it. I am far from being perfect and that comes along with my dry hair lately. It might have to do with not getting a trim but I also have not been paying attention to my poor dry hair at least the ends. This post will give you ideas of a couple of hair masks that you can do in your kitchen.

Brittle Hair

Natural ingredients that are protein-rich are eggs and mayonnaise. They also give you an amazing shine and beats all those fancy hair and deep conditioner from the store.

Fine Hair

All you need is bananas, eggs and a tad bit of olive oil. Bananas are one of the most natural ingredients for thinning hair and the eggs have proteins that will give your hair strength, volume and shine along with the olive oil.

Dry Dull Hair

We all use this mask from time to time just for that pick me up. All you will need is a couple of more ingredients but is all natural if you're into that and will leave your hair feeling soft and shiny. I actually altered this recipe a couple of times in one of my past posts HERE depending on my mood and pantry.

♥ 1/2 avocado
♥ 1/4 cup mayonnaise
♥ 1 tbsp coconut oil
♥ 1 tbsp honey

Oily Hair

If you have an oily scalp like myself sometimes you will need to use this hair mask instead of a more moisturizing rich hair mask and this one will do the trick.

♥ 5 tbsp plain yogurt
♥ 1 tbsp of baking soda
♥ 1 tbsp lemon juice

  5. Thanks for the tips. I have dry dull hair. The only problem I see is that I love avocados. Will one ever make it into a hair recipe? Maybe not.

  7. Honestly? I just stopped washing my hair and now it feels and looks awesome all the time! I wash it about once a week and just rinse it good in between. It took a few weeks to get used to, but now it has shine and body that it never had before!

  14. I don't use hair masks since I have fine, oily hair and they usually make my hair limp. I'll have to try it using real ingredients, who knows maybe that will work.

  21. Well, I need mayonaise, but I think I would throw up if I had to put that on my hair. YUCK!

    1. Believe me is not all flowers when you apply it but mayonnaise has all the nutrients that your hair needs

  22. Fabulous ideas! I would much rather use natural products I have around the house on my hair. My dull and frizzy hair could definately use a pick-me-up! #SITSBlogging.

  25. Because this winter is so freaking harsh, my hair is dry (like my skin), so that hair mask might be the cure it needs. #SITSBlogging

    1. I usually do it for 30 minutes but the longer the better, but I do notice that when I use the mayonnaise mask my hair tends to retain the smell

  34. These are really interesting. I have a lot of friends that like to try natural hair "remedies", but I've kind of shied away from them myself. Putting food in my hair just seems...well...lol. But I might give the oily hair treatment a go.

    1. I know it sounds odd, but some people even make their own scrubs like myself and its not as odd as you may think. Believe it or not natural products are better for us internally and externally

  45. Thanks so much for sharing this post. I have brittle hair, come to think of it, I believe my grandma used to put mayo on it although I never really understood why. I don't know how I feel about having egg on my head but I suppose it's just like easter! (We do a real egg hunt!). Have an awesome week! #SITSBlogging
