For Dry & Coarse Hair
Hydrating ingredients that work to fix dry hair include avocados, bananas, egg yolks, maple syrup, rum and sunflower oil.
We recommend applying masks for dry hair and putting a shower cap over hair for at least 15 and rinse it.
For Greasy Scalp
Mix oatmeal, milk and almond oil or olive oil and make a paste. Comb your hair well before applying this mask, then gently apply it. Leave it for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
For Normal Hair
Strawberry Hair Mask:
Take a cup of strawberries, one egg yolk, and
2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Mix all of these up until the strawberries look more like juice than chunks.
Work it into your hair and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse and wash with a mild shampoo.
For Oily Hair
Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon
Combine 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar with the grated peel of an entire lemon and allow it to set for 15 minutes to absorb the excess oil from your scalp, and then rinse in the shower.
For Shiny Hair
Massage ½ cup mayonnaise into your hair and scalp, cover with a shower cap and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse with lukewarm water.
Ladies, Mayo and Avocado really are good for your hair and it’s not just a myth. Here’s what you do: take a full jar of full fat mayonnaise and one half of one very mashed up avocado. Mix well and apply to your hair. Pay very special attention to those roots and then after 20 minutes rinse your hair in cold water. You’ll see the difference!
For Weak Hair Roots
Hibiscus Hair Mask
It is a solution for weak roots as hibiscus is known to strengthen them. Soak hibiscus petals overnight in a cup of water. Then blend it with almond oil or coconut oil and curd. Apply this pack on hair. Keep the hair mask for 30 minutes and then rinse it with water.
