4 Easy DIY Hair Masks For Gorgeous Hair


Everyone wants silky smooth hair like they see in the commercials, but did you know that some of the best hair treatments come from your pantry, and not the beauty aisle? It's true! I love doing homemade hair masks every few of weeks. It not only saves me money, but sometimes the natural ingredients give me even better results than the store-bought masks! Here are just a few to try:


For All Hair Types: Avocado & Honey

Cut and scoop out the flesh from a ripened avocado and mix in a tablespoon of organic honey. Apply to hair and allow it to sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it off in the shower.

Avocados are rich in a variety of vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin E and protein, both of which your hair needs to remain soft and healthy. Meanwhile, honey is a natural antibacterial agent.

For Dry Hair: Olive Oil & Eggs

Combine three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with two eggs and apply the mixture to your hair and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes before rinsing in the shower.

The olive oil will help hydrate brittle locks, while the protein in the eggs will promote healthy hair growth.

For Oily Hair: Apple Cider Vinegar & 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.

Apple cider vinegar will remove build up from styling products and conditioners and strengthen the hair shaft, leaving you with soft, shiny strands. It will also balance hair’s pH level, kill bacteria, and is a cure for dandruff.

For All Hair Types: Coconut Oil & Honey

Combine one tablespoon of organic coconut oil, and one tablespoon of organic raw honey. (optional: heat mixture on stovetop for even better results.) Let mask soak in for 30-40 minutes. Rinse off.

Coconut oil boost hair and scalp health, and also repairs damaged hair. As an added bonus it’s also an antimicrobial which controls the fungus causing dandruff.
