It really sucks when your hair feels dry. Not only does it feel bad but it also affects your confidence. Let's face it: no women would like to have such unnurtured hair. This is precisely why we love using homemade masks. They are cheap since all the ingredients you require are natural and can be found in your kitchen. 

Ingredients

You will be amazed by the properties of these natural ingredients. They will bring out the shiny, silky, healthy and moisturized look. Different combinations of these ingredients will make different masks which are all beneficial and nourishing to your hair. They include:

  • Eggs
  • Avocado
  • Honey
  • Coconut milk
  • Coconut oil
  • lemon
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Brown sugar

Each of these will have a different impact. Here's how different ingredients affect your hair:

Eggs

Retains the gleamy, shiny look of your hair due to their richness in proteins, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E. The protein content in your hair is boosted by the proteins in eggs leaving it healthy and restoring it all the while.

Honey

It has a natural ability to keep hair moist. When it's feeling dry, honey is the perfect choice to give a natural moisture boost and leave it smoothened and soft. It will also regain its lost shining appearance. Honey's emollient nature will leave a soothing and moisturizing effect.

Coconut milk

People who are losing hair need vitamin Niacin and vitamin Folate which is found in coconut milk. These vitamins will promote growth and also increase scalp circulation. Coconut milk will also naturally detangle it, nourish it and moisture it to the tip of its root. This ingredient can have a big impact on your beauty!

Coconut oil

Its ability to retain high moisture content will keep your hair moist and soft preventing it from breaking off. It is comprised of high quantities of fatty acid which aids in penetrating deeper than any other regular conditioners. Organic coconut oil will leave follicles amazingly soft, shiny, and silky. Coconut oil has a wide range of benefits not only to your hair but to your natural body hormones as well.

Lemon

The acidic nature of lemon helps absorb excess oil. It is much beneficial to people with an oily scalp. It cleans any deposits and all dust trapped within. Lemons contain high levels of vitamin C making it really strong. Limonene in lemon juice makes a perfect compound for anti-dandruff due to its anti-fungal properties. At the end of the day, your hair will look alive and shiny.

Extra virgin olive oil

It is known for its ability to treat dryness. Virgin olive oil is a natural conditioner which helps by making it soft and by moisturizing and preventing the scalp from drying. You can rest assured there will be no more flyaway hair, split ends or any more breakages.

Apple cider vinegar

Its distinguishable properties are to fight bacterial and fungal infections which lead to itching and flaky scalp. It’s a natural conditioner that cleans the hair without shedding off natural oils. It helps in retaining moisture when conditioning. It contains vitamin B and C, with potassium making it slightly acidic. It works amazingly when diluted with water balancing pH level of the scalp and curing any infections. Apple cider vinegar gives a hard look at the outside of the hair making it shine, smooth and giving a silk appearance with minimum chances of tangling.

Brown sugar

Makes hair healthy by acting as an exfoliant in eliminating dead cells on the skin and eliminate any built-up residue on the scalp.
