We all want to have beautiful, long and lustrous hair, it defines our beauty. Hair masks for long bought from the stores can get really expensive, especially during hard economic times like today.
However, if you are looking for a hair mask that can help you get longer and more beautiful hair, here are a few affordable homemade hair masks that can give you that long hair you have always yearned for. Try making these in your own kitchen!
1. Get an egg, a banana, one tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of milk, and five teaspoons of olive oil. However, if olive oil is less accessible, replace it with any type of oil that you have in your kitchen. Mix these ingredients well, and then apply the mask into your hair and scalp. Allow the mask to rest on your head for around 25 minutes, shampoo it, and then condition it.
2. The length of your hair will only increase if it is healthy in a manner that there are no breakages, nor split ends. Therefore, you need to have a conditioning mask that maintains your hair’s health. For a strong conditioning mask, mix equal proportions of honey and olive oil and then apply to your hair and scalp. Leave it on your head for around 25 minutes before you shampoo it, and then condition as usual.
3. Strawberries are not only good food for you, they can also form part of a great hair mask for longer hair. Blend an egg yolk, two teaspoons of olive oil, and a cup of strawberries together using a food processor. Massage it through your entire scalp and hair, and let it soak for 15 minutes before you shampoo and condition as usual.
4. You can also take advantage of organic hair rinses, such as those made with the same amount of water and apple cider vinegar. They are powerful enough to clear any residue left overs from conditioners, shampoos, and other hair products.
