Hair, hair, hair! It’s all about the hair. Your hair says so much about you. Hair comes in all sorts of lengths, colors, textures and thicknesses. But what you don’t want is dry dead and damaged hair. Consider all the things you put your hair through, curling irons, flat irons, blow dryer, hair spray, and even when you shower you strip your hair of its natural oils. But I mean who can resist the temptation of using heat on your hair to style it. Here are three easy hair masks that you can make simply at the comfort of your own home. So don’t fret, you don’t need to put down that hot tool because here are some home remedies that can rescue that shine in your hair.
1. The Olive Oil Hair Mask
Microwave ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil for 10-15 seconds and coat the ends and shaft of your hair, put your hair in a shower cap or plastic bag to keep the heat trapped in to open up the hair follicles so it will soak in the oil to really moisturize the hair. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and shower as usual. MAKE SURE TOO USE CONDITIONER!!!!
2. Creamy Avocado Hair Mask
Take half of a ripe avocado and mash it up in a bowl or any container. You don’t want it too chunky so make it as smooth as possible. If you want you can put it into a food processor or a blender to make a smoother texture. After the avocado is mashed up apply the avocado to the ends and shaft of your hair. Keep it in for 15-20 minutes and wash your hair.
3. The Tropical Coconut Oil Hair Mask
Put 2 tablespoons of Coconut oil in the microwave until it is completely melted but not too hot. Work the coconut oil into, once again, the ends and shaft of the hair. Wrap the hair up in a shower cap or plastic bag and leave it on for 15-20 minutes then wash your hair.
*Why you only put these on the ends and shaft of the hair is because near the roots is where natural oils is produced so you don’t want to put extra oils on that area or your hair will look oily, so you put it on the ends and shaft of your hair where it does not get nourished by the natural oils as much as the roots do.
