After doing my hair dyed and highlights, I decided to follow it up with homemade hair mask. Actually, I used to dye my hair with henna, yogurt and olive oil but as I did it frequently my hair turned to reddish-brown 🙂
Here are the ingredients and I also wrote down the benefits of each.
Coconut Oil – ( 1 tbsp) not all hair types benefit from coconut oil. Those with medium shiny hair will see good results but those with coarse or dry hair will do harm more than good. Coarse or dry hair will benefit more from argan oil. Coconut oil is the richest natural source of medium fatty acids with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.This help prevent protein loss in hair.
Olive Oil – (1 tbsp) ,acts as moisturizer, it contains anti inflammatory properties that promote scalp health and prevent dandruff. Also it contains high levels of mono unsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E which is important for hair growth.
Honey – (1 tbsp) contains vitamins and mineral which is essential for hair health. Makes the hair glow. It strengthens the hair follicles,curbing hair fall.
Egg – (1 yolk) contains a large amount of vitamins A,D,and E. It promotes hair growth and prevent hair fall.
Yogurt – (2 tbsp) full of vitamins, a skin food for scalp. It has lactic acids, which is great for cleansing the scalp and cleaning away dead skin cells to help hair follicles grow.
Mix all ingredients:
I applied the hair mask on my dry hair . Comb and remove any tangled hair. Section hair and spread the mask evenly like coloring your hair.
Cover ( 30-40 min) with disposable cap and I used hair band to prevent the liquid dripping to my face. I didn’t use towel because it will absorb the liquid rather than goes to my hair and scalp. Rinse and shampoo as usual.
The result 🙂 soft and silky hair and smell nice too!
It seems the before photo is more shiny? Well, I guess it’s the lighting!
Ladies, try and you will know it yourself how is the result 🙂
How often do I do hair mask?
I usually do it once every six weeks after I dye my hair but it is recommended to at least once a week.
