This simple mask makes flat hair look fuller with just two household ingredients: one egg yolk and 50mls of flat beer. The mixture should be applied on damp hair, wrapped up in a dry towel or plastic, and then left for 30 minutes. Wash hair thoroughly and be amazed at how much healthier your hair looks. This easy mixture works well because beer is made of malt and hops, which strengthens your hair cuticles to make your hair look stronger and shinier. This should not be used too often, however, as it will dry your hair out. It works best if it’s used just once a month.
An avocado mask will not only strengthen hair, it can also promote hair growth. Avocados are rich in vitamins B and E, which help to protect and strengthen the hair to encourage regular hair growth. Avocados also act as a moisturiser for dry or damaged hair. For this mask you’ll need the flesh of a ripe avocado, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 3 tablespoons of castor oil. Mash the ingredients up together or mix in a blender, before applying evenly to the hair. This should then be left for at least an hour, and for the best results it can be applied weekly.
This easy mask takes just minutes to make and can do wonders for your hair. Oats are well known for their moisturising properties and can even be used in face masks, as well as hair masks. This mask is created using equal measures of castor oil, milk and oats, which can be adjusted depending on the length and thickness of your hair. This mask should be massaged into your hair and then left on for up to 30 minutes for bouncy and shiny hair throughout the day.
Yoghurt can help eliminate frizz and rid your hair of tangles, making this an ideal mask for women with long or curly hair. This quick mask is produced using one beaten egg white and six tablespoons of plain natural yoghurt, which should be mixed thoroughly and then applied to wet hair. This mixture can be left on for up to 20 minutes, before being washed out.
Apples can balance your hair’s pH levels and helps to close the hair cuticle, which in turn results in a smoother surface and shinier hair. To create this apple mask, peel and core 1 or 2 large apples, and then blend these to create a pulp. Combine this pulp with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of corn flour. Spread the mixture all over dry, unwashed hair and leave for 30 minutes before rinsing off. Lemon juice will also naturally lighten your hair for a gorgeous glow.
Bananas can soothe itchy scalps, which is often needed after a long day of wearing a wig or topper. To make this mask, mash a ripe banana and add a couple of drops of almond oil, as well as 4 tablespoons of honey. Add this to your hair for 20 minutes and cover with a shower cap to reduce mess or drips. Rinse well and make sure all of the banana is washed out.
