hair masks

With the right ingredients that you probably have hanging around in your kitchen, you can mix up your own homemade, all-natural hair mask right at home to make your own built in spa! It’s also important to stay hydrated, eat healthy foods and to try and avoid washing your hair every day.

 

Over washing your hair can cause a dry scalp, which can cause dandruff. Over washing can also strip away the natural oils that nourish your hair.  Using these DIY hair masks will condition your hair and help prevent breakage while being a healthier way to repair damaged hair of all types. Lather up your hair with these homemade recipes for a relaxing, spa-like experience.

Olive oil and avocado hair mask

  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Add 2 tablespoons of honey for extra hydration.
