DIY Hair Mask Recipes for Summer
Summer is almost here! We love sunshine, surf, and partying the hot nights away, and we love doing it all with great hair! Unfortunately, after a while, our hair doesn’t love the good times quite as much as we do. Getting treatments from salons is great for your hair but can be a little expensive after a while. Fortunately, we’ve sourced a few different recipes for a DIY hair mask for dry hair this summer that can be made simply and easily with items you probably already have in your kitchen, using no more than 2 ingredients!
Coconut oil and honey mask
Great for: prevention of dandruff and soothing dry and itchy scalp. Deep conditioning and restorative properties for sun-damaged hair.
Mix 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 2 teaspoons of honey
Massage into scalp and ends. Be generous with the ends as this is where most of the damage to the hair lies. Wrap a towel around your head and let sit for 30 minutes before rinsing off.
Olive oil and egg yolk mask
Great for: deep conditioning, strengthening hair strands and preventing breakage, hair loss prevention.
Mix 1 egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of olive oil
After massaging into hair and scalp, cover with a disposable shower cap/plastic bag and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse off THOROUGHLY in COLD WATER ONLY – hot water can result in cooked bits of egg left in your hair! Finish with organic shampoo and conditioner.
Avocado and banana mask
Great for: promoting shine, hair growth, and hair loss prevention. Prevention of split ends and hair breakage promotes hair elasticity.
Mix half an avocado with 2 ripe bananas in a food processor until smooth and completely free of lumps.
Massage into scalp and ends and cover with a shower cap. Leave for 15 minutes, rinse thoroughly. No need to shampoo or condition.
