Feeling energized for this ongoing week? Yes? Then why not try one of these super approved hair masks that can be done at home after work?
If you notice, I have shared all masks with you guys already, you can see by clicking on the names of the masks. You will get redirected to the actual post done by myself on earlier occasions. Goes to show that I do apply the masks on my hair and that I live by them.
If you have not tried them, go for one. You will not be disappointed!
So here are my top 5 homemade hair masks:
So far, this mask has made me a very happy woman. My hair gets so soft and moisturized, deefined and smelling of chocolate. What’s not to love? It is definitly a must try. Be cautious of your ingredients though. Corn starch is in the mix and there are hair strands that do not enjoy that specific ingredient. The same goes for the oils. In case of the oils, use vegetable oils you know your hair likes. Just two show you two different recipes which are both great.
- 2 tablespoons of powdered chocolate (cocoa)
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 3 tablespoons of any hydrating mask
- 1 cup of filtered water
- 1 tablespoon full of corn starch
- 1 tablespoon full of any hydrating mask
- 1/2 a tablespoon of glycerin (vegetable preferably) or bepantol
- 1 teaspoon of powdered chocolate (cocoa)
- 1/2 a teaspoon of any vegetable oil (olive, coconut, avocado, almonds, peppermint, etc.)
It was hard to decide between this mask and the chocolate mask. I was initially having a hard time deciding if I wanted to add milk on my recipe because I saw a few comments mentioning how milk straightened your hair if left on it for long. But I had quite the opposite effect. The result is stunning. Again, use vegetable oils you know your hair likes, if coconut oil does not sit well with your hair, swap it with another oil like almond, castor, olive, etc.
- 1 tablespoon of milk (liquid not powdered)
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of honey ( you may also use sugar if there is no honey)
- 2 tablespoons of an hydrating mask
It really does add:
- Coffee fragrance
If you do not enjoy the smell of coffee, do not do this mask. If you have very thin hair, do not do this mask, because of the exfoliating sugar. But if you want to try it out, rather just remove the sugar and just work with the honey or maybe let the sugar melt almost completely. Your hair might also get a temporaary brown colour to it because of the coffee.
- 4 tablespoons of sugar (brown preferably)
- 1 tablespoon of granulated coffee
- 1 tablespoon of honey/olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of your hydrating mask
4. Banana Mask
Honestly speaking, I thought it weird to add banana to your hair when I first heard about this mask. No offense, I love bananas. But they are better in my stomach, on my hair though, they are just as good.
- A ripe crushed banana (from own experience, try to take out those strands found on the banana which I have no clue what they are called, because you do not want them stuck on your hair after)
- 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil
- 2 tablespoons of honey
This is a very simple to-do mask that works wonders. The definition and shine it brings is great. Not to mention that you will find these products in your pantry with no problem at all. Some people even opt to add eggs to it in order to get some protein action which is important and necessary for your hair.
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
So this is it.
As you can see, most of my favorite masks are hydrating masks for that is what my hair asks for the most. The masks that work well with my hair will not necessarily work well with yours for all hairs are different.
What are your favorite masks? Have you guys already tried any of the masks?
