Whether you have dry hair or are just looking for a creative way to play with a new beauty routine, hair masks help restore both shine and moisture into your post-winter locks without harsh chemicals or expensive salon treatments. Plus, with mostly organic and yummy additives, it’s ok to snack on a few of the extra ingredients!
Honey, Oil, and Avocado Hair Mask
- 1 avocado (make sure it’s ripe!)
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of honey
With these three ingredients, hair will instantly shine and be rehydrated. Simply blend all of them together, mashing the avocado, and apply it to your dry hair. If your hair has a tendency to build up grease, just put it on your ends or from your ears down to the ends.
For best results, pin up your hair and put a shower cap over it. Leave it in for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how thick your hair is, how damaged it is, or how intense of an effect you want, and then rinse.
Strawberry, Olive Oil, and Egg Hair Mask
- Fresh strawberries, about 200 grams
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 egg yolk
Leaving your hair shiny and smelling amazing, this strawberry-based hair mask is a great way to hydrate limp and dry locks. Mash the strawberries, or blend them and add the olive oil and egg yolk into the mix.
Apply the mask to your hair at either just the roots or in full, and let sit for about 25 minutes, then rinse.
Olive Oil and Honey Hair Mask
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of honey
The great thing about this hair mask is accessibility, olive oil and honey are easily found around the house and work wonders on your hair.
First, put the olive oil into a bowl and microwave it for about 15-20 seconds. Then, mix in the honey. This mixture works best when applied to damp hair, so wet your locks and then apply. Leave it on your hair for about 15 minutes, then rinse and follow with conditioner if desired.
This hair mask fits seamlessly into a regular shower routine – instead of doing a traditional shampoo, apply the mask onto damp hair and continue with shaving your legs or lathering up for about 15 minutes or so and then rinse.
