This entry was posted on November 29, 2012.
If you're already suffering from a itchy scalp, dry ends, and hair that's losing its luster, you're most likely suffering from dry hair from the winter. The cold weather unfortunately strips your hair of its natural moisture and the result is dry tresses that makes you anxious to make your hair long and silky smooth again!
Avocado Coconut Milk Mask
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
Yogurt, Banana and Honey Mask
- 3 oz of plain yogurt (I use organic, but you can use whatever you have. You may need more or less depending on the length and thickness of your hair.)
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup of honey
Mash up the banana using a fork or spoon and combine all 3 ingredients together to form a thick paste. Apply to hair and leave it on for an hour before rinsing off. It's best to put it on dry hair and thoroughly rinse it out in the shower, but don't shampoo. You can use this weekly if desired, or less often. It's recommended to apply this mask on your tresses only one day of the week so that your hair doesn't get overly greasy.
Now that you know two DIY home winter masks your hair will become shiny and beautiful again during the cold winter months. Be careful with how often you use the winter masks because some of the ingredients can cause oily tresses, especially honey and coconut oils.
If you're overly concerned with having oily hair only use the hair masks on days when you don't plan on going out. Also, be aware that the results may not show up for a few days, but when they do you'll have gorgeous hair that's shiny and full of life!
