Beauty Tips for healthy, clean and smooth hair

It’s not hard to make a mask for your hair. In fact, it will involve a lot of the same ingredients you would use for a mask for your skin. The application process is different, obviously, but making and using the homemade hair mask will be just as simple!

Coconut Oil

This is the most simple hair mask you can make for yourself. It only has one ingredient – coconut oil! I actually learned about this treatment from a girl who cut my hair. She had dyed her hair one too many times and was looking for a way to get some moisture back.

All you need for this is about a quarter of a cup of warmed coconut oil. (It needs to be in its liquid state.) Simply apply it to your hair (wet or dry, it doesn’t really matter) and leave it in for at least an hour. You’ll want to be in the bathtub for this, or well-covered with a towel. If you’re going to continue going about your chores or even keep this treatment on overnight, make sure you take the necessary precautions, like a shower cap. Coconut oil will stain clothing and linens.

When you’re finished with your treatment, wash the coconut oil out of your hair and carry on as normal. Warning: coconut oil makes showers slippery, so be prepared to clean it up immediately.

Avocado & Egg Yolk

The first time I realized that eggs were good for your hair, I was a kid in Vacation Bible School. I missed my catch in an egg-toss and ended up with a cracked egg on my head. (I’d like to say I’ve gotten more graceful since then, but that wouldn’t be true.) After the counselors rinsed my hair and it dried to its normal state, I couldn’t help but notice how different my hair felt where the egg had cracked.

Turns out egg really is a great thing to put in your hair. For a moisturizing, restorative, make-it-shine hair mask, mix it with some avocado!

  • ½ an avocado
  • 2 egg yolks

Mix ingredients well. Apply to wet or dry hair and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing and washing hair.

Yogurt, Honey & Olive Oil

Honey might not sound like something you want to put on your hair, and I understand. It’s like the stickiest substance found in nature. But when you mix it with a little yogurt and olive oil, it’s an important component to helping get your hair back in shape.

Mix the ingredients well. Apply to damp hair, and allow to sit for 15-2o minutes. Rinse and wash your hair, and allow to dry as normal.

Good luck getting your hair back to its happy, healthy, shiny state. Which mask do you think you’ll try first?
