DIY Hair Mask Recipes

By Shana Aborn for Life & Beauty Weekly

A DIY hair mask is a great way to pamper your hair. Using a home hair mask regularly will keep your hair looking shiny and gorgeous, as well as repair damage from the sun and frequent blow-drying.  

Although there are excellent hair masks available on the market, you can also make your own with some simple kitchen ingredients. Try these DIY hair mask recipes for your hair type:

For fine hair: Mix a tablespoon of honey in half a cup of full-fat milk. Apply to your hair and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse out with mild shampoo.

For medium hair: Soften a large chunk of coconut oil cream with your hands and massage into hair. Wrap your head in a warm towel and leave on for an hour, then rinse out with a gentle shampoo.

For coarse hair: Whisk 5 tablespoons of olive oil with 2 eggs. Massage thoroughly into your hair, and then cover it with plastic wrap or a shower cap to allow the mixture to penetrate. Leave it on for a minimum of 30 minutes; shampoo and rinse out well.
