DIY Hair Masks for Dry Hair – part 1

DIY masks for dry hair are the perfect way to restore its lost moisture and shine without the extra cost of special #hair care products or unneeded chemicals. Making a mask for dry hair isn’t hard at all, and it doesn’t require any particular skill, special products or #time you don’t have. And here are a few treatments for dry hair you can try as soon as…well…this very moment!

1. Coconut Pack

Rich in proteins, fatty acids, vitamin B and C, zinc, potassium and iron, the coconut will prove to be one of the best treatments for dry hair ever! Invest in a jar of extra virgin #coconut oil and just apply it on your hair whenever you know that your hair is going through a lot of stress (harsh winters, blazing hot summers) or when you notice that your standard hair care routine is lacking something. Work the oil into your #hair section by section, massage it into your scalp, pack in a warm towel and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse, wash and condition as usual.

2. Honey and Olive Oil Mask for Dry Hair

As weird as it sounds, honey does great #things for both your hair and your face. Olive oil… well, we’ve already discussed this excellent ingredient of most DIY hair masks. Now all you’ll have to do is to put these two together by mixing 4 tablespoons of honey with 6 tablespoons of olive oil, and you’ll get one super nurturing mask that will transform your hair! Let it sit on your #hair for 15 to 30 minutes and don’t forget to cover it with a plastic bag.
3. Milk and Honey Mask

Milk and honey infusion might have been a luxury a few hundred years ago, but it’s something a modern #woman her use whenever she pleases! And if you have dry hair, you’ll definitely want to indulge in it every week or two. Use a half to a full cup of full-fat milk (room temperature) and add either one or 2 big tablespoons of honey. Mix well to get the honey to melt, then carefully pour it over your hair making sure the most of it really ends up where it should. I usually allow it about an hour to work, then rinse it off using my regular shampoo. This incredible pack won’t weight your #hair down or make it greasy but give it beautiful, healthy shine and softness instead.
4. Avocado, Olive Oil and Honey Mask for Dry Hair

Next on my list of great DIY masks for dry hair is a simple, yet incredibly nurturing mixture of some of the best natural products ever – honey, avocado, and olive oil! Mash one nice, ripe #avocado (use it’s flesh only) and add one tablespoon of honey and two tablespoons of olive oil. Blend it all well and apply on your damaged tresses. Wrap a plastic bag over your #hair to maximize the effect of this mask and leave it to work its magic. Twenty minutes is okay if you’re in a rush although I always prefer to leave it on at least an hour.
