From Dry, Damaged & Frizzy to Soft & Healthy Hair – 5 Hair Masks

So, I have had thick but dry, damaged and frizzy hair all my life. And it was the bane of my existence. I used to shy away from going to places, all because of my hair. Well, mostly. If you have frizzy and unmanageable hair, you’d know what I saying here. I didn’t feel confident. I couldn’t make any hair style. Could not let my hair down and making a ponytail or braid looked just downright dowdy as a teenager or even later. Also, my hair would all stick out from the braid. It looked hideous. I look at my old photos and wonder why I never cared for my hair the way I do now. Now that I have postpartum hair loss too. Well, it’s never too late.

I started caring for my hair about six months ago. I started using oil more, applied hair masks and carried out 100 strokes every night perfunctory, however ghastly my hair brush looked afterwards. And it all paid off. I now have manageable, somewhat straight and silky hair. Most importantly, they are healthy and hair loss is now down to what everyone faces usually.

This blog post is for you. My gift to you. I am going to share all the different hair masks I have used on my hair during this 6 month period. They all have shown great results. Initially I used these masks twice a week but now I apply it just once a week, if I use it more than once my hair turns oily, so I realized that I am over doing it. So, if you have straight or silky or prone to turn oily kinda hair, use hair mask just once a week. I also do no repeat the same hair mask every week.

So. Here goes:

1-  MAYONNAISE

Mayonnaise-Hair-Mask-For-Dandruff

The oil, egg and vinegar combination now only nourishes hair, but vinegar cleans the scalp and brings shine to hair too. Easiest home remedy for hair treatment. No need to mix things up to apply. Just grab mayonnaise from fridge and apply to your hair. As for quantity, it depends upon your hair length and thickness. Cover your hair, let it sit for 15-30 minutes and wash it off with your shampoo.

Honey, rich in antioxidants seals moisture in your hair and reduces hair breakage where as milk is a great hair conditioner.

You cannot go possibly wrong with oils. There are fatty acids and vitamins in coconut oil that help in hair growth. While olive oil moisturizes hair, vitamins in egg encourage blood stimulation to scalp by increasing oxygen production.

5- HONEY + EGG YOLK
