As the seasons change, you may find that your hair looks and feels different as the weather transforms from warm to damp to cold! From dandruff and a dry scalp to hair that feels too brittle to style, you can use various hair masks to make your hair feel soft and healthy while removing the dryness and providing nourishment it needs to survive a day outside in pollution.
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at three simple home remedies that can help moisturize and rejuvenate your dry hair.
Let’s take a closer look!
Coconut oil and honey
Coconut oil has an endless list of benefits, including that it is a healthy cooking fat, digestion aid, and an ingredient that supports the body’s natural hormones. When it comes to your hair, it helps keep it moist and soft while preventing breakage. It has high moisture-retaining qualities, is also loaded with fatty acids, and penetrates your hair beyond the surface level. On the other hand, honey helps retain moisture in the hair. It sucks moisture into the strands and prevents them from escaping. If your hair feels particularly dry, honey is a great ingredient. It also smoothens and softens the hair while bringing back any lost shine.
Here’s what you need to make a hair mask from these two ingredients. Combine equal parts of coconut oil and honey in a generous amount to cover all your hair and mix it. Transfer this mixture to the stove and heat it until everything melts together. Massage the mixture into your hair and cover it with a shower cap. Let the mask sit for about 20-25 minutes, and wash your hair after.
Coconut oil and cinnamon
We’ve already talked about all the excellent properties and benefits that coconut oil provides us, so we won’t discuss them again. However, cinnamon is another ingredient that is great for dry hair. It has antimicrobial properties that can help your hair grow better while helping with dandruff and hair loss. Cinnamon also stimulates circulation to your scalp while improving blood flow to the hair follicles. This leads to stimulated hair growth, so if you want to grow your hair much longer, give this mask a try! Combine a teaspoon of cinnamon with a few tablespoons of coconut oil and mix it well. Part your hair in the middle and massage the mixture into your scalp, then cover your head with a towel or shower cap. Let the mask sit for about 20 minutes, then rinse it off with water and wash your hair.
Castor oil, egg yolk, and honey
Combine an egg yolk, a tablespoon of honey, and a few tablespoons of castor oil, and apply this mask to your hair from the roots to the tips. Cover your head with a shower cap or towel, then rinse it. Take care to rinse your hair with lukewarm or cold water so as not to cook the egg in your hair! All three ingredients contain moisturizing properties while providing your hair with a strengthening protein that rejuvenates dry and dead hair. Once the mixture has been removed, and your hair has been washed, rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar. Put this mask on your hair at least three times weekly for best results!
A hair mask is easy to put together, and you don’t need to look much further than your kitchen to try and rejuvenate your hair! Try one of these recipes over a weekend so that your moisturized hair is ready to take on another week when you go to work on Monday!
