DIY Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

 
My hair is really thin.  It gets both greasy and dry.  Really, it just depends on the day and how much I have been washing it that week.  I’m really bad at getting my hair trimmed so it often breaks off when I’m trying to grow it out.
 

I also love to dye my hair fun colors which means bleached hair. That can cause a good amount of damage.

 

So when my hair gets dry, I love to make a DIY hair mask at home.  There are lots of different ingredients you can use on your hair to help nourish and strengthen it. This homemade mask uses four pantry ingredients making it easy to make for not a lot of dough.

DIY Hair Mask Ingredients

Like I said before, there are tons of ingredients you can use to deep condition your hair at home. Yogurt, olive oil, aloe vera, bananas are all great ingredients used in DIY hair masks so feel free to substitute any of them if you need to. Here’s what I’m using for this deep conditioning mask:

 
Avocado – Avocado is a rich source of protein and vitamins. It helps to nourish and moisturize the scalp. It also promotes healthy hair growth. Avocado has vitamin B oil which is essential for hair growth and vitamin E helps treat dryness and repair damage on the scalp.  It works as a conditioner. It also contains antioxidants to help unclog pores filled with bacteria, excess oils and dirt.
 
Honey – acts as an anti-frizzing agent for hair.  It helps stimulate hair growth.  It can also help with dandruff. It helps prevents split ends, softens hair and helps nourish the scalp. And, fights off infections and bacteria. 
 
Egg – softens and moisturizes hair,  promotes hair growth, nourishes hair follicles and makes hair shiny and silky.
 
Coconut Oil – has antibacterial properties to help fight off folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicles. It can improve scalp health, make your hair thicker, fuller and helps with hair loss.  It also helps fight frizz and get rid of dandruff.  It can help prevent lice and promote hair growth. 
 
You’ll notice in the photo below that my avocado was starting to turn brown in spots. That’s ok. The mask will still work. In fact, making a homemade hair mask is a great way to use up food that might be getting to old to eat or close to expiring. 
 

How to Make the Hair Mask

Grab your ingredients and lets get started.

  • 2 tsp Coconut oil
  • Half an avocado 
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 Egg 
  1. Melt coconut oil the in microwave for a few seconds.

  1. Add avocado, honey, and raw egg. 

  1. Mix all ingredients together until smooth. You can put the ingredients into a blender or food processor to get it really smooth but it’s not a necessary step. A slightly chunky hair mask won’t make it work any less and you’ll have less dishes to do after. However, it might make you crave guacamole.
  1. Massage this into your dry hair from scalp to tip.  If your hair is longer you might want to double the recipe.

  1. Leave the mask on your hair for 15 to 30 minutes.  I like to wrap my head in plastic wrap so it doesn’t drip onto my clothes or whatever I am sitting on but it’s not a necessary step. 

  1. Wash your hair out with shampoo and condition like normal.  Your hair should feel amazing!
