Hair that is not adequately moisturized is a recipe for disaster as far as your hair growth is concerned. It is therefore important for you to ensure that your hair is moisturized at all times. Here, you will learn about two of the best hydrating masks that you can make from the comfort of your home.
1. Avocado & Banana mask
Yes, banana and avocado are not only edible, but great ingredients for a hydrating hair mask. So how do you prepare this mask? Begin by cracking one egg into a mixing bowl and then whisk the egg until it becomes foamy. To the whisked egg, add one small ripe avocado, and one large ripe banana. Add three tablespoon of sweet almond oil and three tablespoon cream and buttermilk and then stir until the mixture is smooth.
How to use
You now have your moisturizing mask, apply it on your hair working from the scalp to the ends of your hair. Remember to cover your hair using a plastic shower cap. Then leave the mask on your hair for around 20-30 minutes. Rinse the mask from your hair using warm water and then shampoo it using your regular moisturizing shampoo. For effective and maximum benefits, apply this mask on your hair at least twice every month, you hair will never be dry another day in your life.
2. Olive oil & Honey mask
Do you feel that the avocado and banana mask might not be appropriate for you, you may want to consider olive oil and honey hair mask. You might already be wondering how sticky and always messy honey can be applied on your hair. It is okay to wonder, but before you go any further, allow me to tell you how to prepare and apply this great hydrating mask. The first step entails placing a half cup of honey in a small mixing bowl that is microwave safe.
Then heat the honey for around five to ten seconds or at least until the honey is warm and appears runny. In the second step, add 3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. However the amount of olive oil you use is dependent on the length and the condition of your hair. For instance, if your hair is long or very dry, increase the olive oil to about a quarter cup. Then break the contents of capsule of vitamin E and stir effectively.
How to apply
The hydrating mask should then be massaged into your hair. Make sure to cover your hair with a plastic cap and leave the mask on your hair for at least 20 minutes. After 20 minutes or so, rinse off the mask and then wash your hair using your regular moisturizing shampoo.
You see, you do not have to break the bank for you to get a hydrating hair mask that delivers, you have it all in your kitchen.
