Homemade Hair Mask

by Sharon Hopkins

In today's world where a person's aesthetic appeal plays a very significant role in his or her overall lifestyle, one can never underestimate the importance of one's hair. Although playing no significant medical role, the hair adds a substantial amount of appeal to a person's overall looks and should be cared for with some importance. The fact that our hair is openly exposed to so many factors such as the environment pollution, chemicals present in hair care products as well as damage caused as a result of over exposure to heat generating appliances like curling iron, heating iron or blow dryer, this may be rather hard to accomplish. However, caring for one's hair does not need to be a very troublesome task. There are so many homemade hair masks and hair conditioners that have proven to be rather effective all over the world. This also means that you could try a number of treatment options before you settle on one that best suits your hair texture.

One of the more important advantages that a homemade hair mask has over the easily available commercially manufactured options is that it is void of any chemical content. This would therefore not expose your hair to the risk of potential damage from the same. One of the more effective homemade hair mask recipes is to use bananas as they make wonderful hair masks. You could blend together some egg, three teaspoons of honey and milk as well as five teaspoons of olive oil. Massage the mixture thoroughly into your hair and scalp and allow it to settle for a period of about 30 minutes. Once the time frame has elapsed have a head bath and use not a very strong shampoo to get the mixture out of your hair. Another very effective homemade hair mask for dry damaged hair is mixing some mashed avocado with a teaspoon of honey. You could also use olive oil and apply it into your hair. Leave it on for a period of 20 minutes before you wash it out with the help of some normal water. The use of a homemade hair mask that has some amount of mayo mixed into it adds a significant amount of bulk to an individual's hair. If your hair seems a bit frizzy, then the inclusion of almond oil in most homemade hair masks is known to be a very effective method of defrizzing your hair.
