Is your hair feeling a little thirsty? Cook up a delicious beauty hair mask in your kitchen.
When it comes to keeping our hair healthy, a deep-treatment hair mask seems to be the real superstar in treating our scalps right. If you’ve been suffering from brittle hair, lackluster hair, or feeling your hair getting quite frizzy, then it’s time to give it some love.
Since we can’t really make a visit to the beauty store just yet, we could perhaps turn into a kitchen beautician and whip up our own hair mask. Consider it getting a salon-worthy hair treatment without leaving your home.
All you need is a dose of moisturising, nourishing, and scalp-friendly ingredients to get down with this natural beauty game. And guess what? All the ingredients have been lying in your kitchen anyway, so why not let your hair reap the benefits too? Here are some easy hair masks recipes that you could storm up in your kitchen to treat every hair type.

For dry or frizzy Hair…
Ingredients: Bananas, Olive Oil, and Honey
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been munching on those bananas for a good source of potassium, but may have over-stocked them at home. Rather than throwing them away, simply use them to curate a nourishing mask for your dry hair. Mash those bananas, add olive oil, and pour some honey on top. Whilst olive oil is rich in fatty acids, honey does the work of reducing breakage and frizz so it conditions the hair and brings back that shine.
For overall healthy hair…
Ingredients: Avocado, Lemon, Olive Oil, Manuka Honey, Lemon, and Essential Oil
Kourtney Kardashian not only drinks her smoothie but applies it on her hair, too. Inspired by her morning green smoothie, this hair mask is great for overall hair health. Whilst avocado helps detangle your hair, lemon soothes itchy scalps and has antibacterial properties. Olive oil is great to protect your hair from heat and honey is quite soothing for your hair.
All you have to do is pour some lemon, avocado, olive oil, honey, and essential oil if you would like fragrance, and throw it all in the blender. Leave it on for about 45 minutes and admire the result.
To promote hair growth and eliminate dandruff…
Ingredients: Ginger and Coconut Oil
If you’ve been down about hair growth, this all-natural hair mask will make up for it. Simply cut and peel 2-3 inches of ginger and compound it in a blender. Afterward, take a cloth or strainer and squeeze out the juice from the ginger. Then add some coconut oil to the ginger juice and mix it well. This home remedy can be applied 2-3 times a week for effective results.
Ginger contains lots of magnesium, potassium, and vitamins that help in making your hair stronger and healthier. It happens to be an effective remedy for hair loss as well. Meanwhile, olive oil is great to improve elasticity and condition your hair.
To revitalise your hair…
Ingredients: Avocado, Apple Cider, Oatmeal, Agave, Coconut Yogurt
Your superfood for skin can be equally effective on your hair too. This purifying treatment adds excess oil and revitalises lackluster hair. This hydrating avocado and an optional oatmeal mask is your ideal hair mask.
Simply mix in a bowl ripe avocado, one tablespoon of apple cider, one tablespoon of oatmeal, and one tablespoon of agave and blend well. You can also add coconut yogurt if you want a desired thickness. Apply it on wet hair and leave it on your hair for 20-30 minutes and then rinse it.
For oily hair…
Ingredients: Egg and Lemon
Believe it or not, cracking that egg on your head could be the best natural conditioner for your oily hair. Eggs are vitamin-rich, contain fatty acids, and help give your hair that extra boost to feel healthy again. Meanwhile, lemon really gels with oily scalps because lemon juice can absorb excess oil and grease in the scalp. Also, lemon is beneficial for fighting dandruff and contains anti-fungal properties.
So, grab an egg and separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Squeeze one half of a lemon into a bowl and mix it with the egg white until it’s blended well. Apply on your wet hair from top to bottom and wear a shower cap. Let it sit for 30-45 minutes and then rinse it with shampoo and conditioner. Voila.
