MAKE YOUR OWN HAIR MASK: RECIPE FOR DRY HAIR
Healthy and shiny hair needs a lot of care – you will certainly know this golden rule from your own experience. The hair masks – at least two or three times a month, are a must for a gorgeous mane. The expensive cosmetics are not always as effective as promised and sometimes cause unwanted allergic reactions. An alternative to this are the homemade masks that do not contain any hidden additives. And a mask with home remedies often has a bigger effect than professional hair care cosmetics – just try our ideas to see for yourself!
Our first suggestion is for an exotic hair mask with mango and coconut oil that moisturizes the hair. Because of this, the recipe is just perfect for dry hair. You need:
– 1 ripe mango
– 4 teaspoons of coconut oil
– 2 egg yolks
– the juice of half a lemon
First, you should wash and peel the mango. Finely puree the pulp in a bowl with the hand blender. Add the egg yolks, coconut oil and lemon juice (freshly squeezed if possible) and mix well all ingredients until you get a homogeneous mixture. Apply the finished mask to washed hair that has been dried with a towel and leave it on for half an hour. Finally, rinse everything off with lukewarm water.
MAKE YOUR OWN HAIR MASK AGAINST SPLISSES
Split ends are a common and uncomfortable problem that can cause hair breakage over time. To avoid it, try the banana and almond mask! For this you need:
– 1 ripe banana
– 2-3 drops of almond oil
The preparation of the mask is extremely easy and quick. All you have to do is mash the banana with a fork, add the almond oil and stir well. Immediately apply the mixture to the scalp and massage into the tips. Let the mask sit for a while before rinsing it off thoroughly. The banana and almond mask is actually not aggressive and the almond oil makes the hair softer and shinier, so you can do the mask up to twice a week if necessary.
MAKE YOUR OWN HAIR MASK FOR OILY HAIR
For oily hair, this recipe with apple cider vinegar and lemon juice is super effective:
– 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
– the juice of a lemon (freshly squeezed)
– 1 glass of water
First, you should squeeze the lemon. Mix the juice with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and a glass of water and drizzle the mixture over your hair. Rinse immediately afterwards so that the vinegar odor disappears completely. In the end, your hair will get a nice shine too.
BUTTERMILK AND nettle tea for damaged hair
Do you regularly straighten your mane or change your hair color too often? Then your hair may be damaged. In this case, we suggest you try the nettle and buttermilk hair mask. For this you will need the following:
– 100ml buttermilk
– 1 or 2 bags of nettle tea
The first step in preparing the mask is to bring the nettle tea to the boil and let it cool down until it becomes lukewarm. Let the tea steep for about 15 minutes and mix it with a cup of buttermilk. Apply the mask to damp hair and massage in well. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Another variant is to remove the mask with nettle tea instead of water.
ANTI-DANDRUFF HAIR MASK WITH AVOCADO AND ALMOND OIL

– 2 teaspoons of almond oil
– 1 ripe avocado
Finely puree the pulp of the avocado and mix it with the almond oil. Apply the mask to damp hair and leave on for about 15 minutes before rinsing off.
