    Let these 5 home-made hair masks work their magic on your mane

    By Emily Hagan | Published on Oct 18, 2023

    Pampering ourselves is not a luxury, it’s a right! We often neglect our hair’s regular nourishment, considering a “hair spa” session as a luxury that can wait. But the truth is, you don’t need expensive trips to the salon to keep your hair healthy. More often than not, the secret to luscious locks is already in our kitchen.

    Hair masks made with natural ingredients are a brilliant way to give our hair the benefits it deserves. They provide softness, hydration, growth, volume, texture, shine, and even help fight off infections. So, let your hair reap the benefits by indulging in these five DIY hair mask recipes that will nourish, protect, and moisturize your hair.

    Hibiscus Hair Mask: Strengthen and Prevent Greying

    The naturally-occurring amino acids in hibiscus flowers provide nutrients that promote hair growth. These amino acids produce an important structural protein called keratin, which is the building block of hair. Keratin makes the hair less prone to breakage and enhances overall thickness, making it more manageable. A hibiscus hair mask also helps prevent premature greying.

    How to Make the Mask:

    • Grind 3-4 hibiscus leaves and 1 hibiscus flower to make a paste.
    • Add about a cup of yogurt to the paste (yogurt works as a hydrating agent, removes dead cells and dandruff, and makes the hair soft).
    • Apply the mask to your hair and leave it on for an hour.
    • Wash off with lukewarm water and shampoo using a mild cleanser.

    Curry-Leaf Hair Mask: Keep Your Hair Healthy and Strong

    Curry leaves are rich in antioxidants, which help keep your hair healthy and strong. They are also a good source of proteins and beta-carotene, both of which prevent hair loss and thinning. The amino acids in curry leaves strengthen hair follicles, making them perfect for hair growth and nourishment.

    How to Make the Mask:

    • Blend curry leaves into a thick paste with a dash of water.
    • Add 3-4 tablespoons of yogurt and mix well until you get a smooth paste.
    • Massage the paste onto your scalp and hair, ensuring full coverage.
    • Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash it off with shampoo.

    Banana Hair Mask: Moisturize and Strengthen Your Hair

    Bananas are rich in antioxidants and have antibacterial properties. Applying banana to your scalp adds moisture and helps get rid of microscopic irritants that cause dandruff. Moreover, bananas provide a stronger defense system against oxidative stress, making your hair look healthier. A banana-based mask also strengthens hair follicles and promotes hair growth.

    How to Make the Mask:

    • Peel and mash 1 banana with your hands.
    • Blend it with one egg until smooth.
    • Apply the mixture to your hair, focusing on the scalp and any split ends.
    • Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes.
    • Rinse the mask thoroughly with shampoo (avoid using hot water to prevent “baking” the egg in your hair).

    Methi Seeds Hair Mask: Combat Hair Loss and Dryness

    Fenugreek or methi seeds are an age-old remedy for hair loss and thinning. They stimulate blood flow in the scalp and nourish hair follicles, promoting faster and healthier growth. Fenugreek also contains a high mucilage content, making your hair easy to detangle. This mask is perfect for those with dry, coarse, or frizzy hair, as it increases manageability and restores shine and bounce.

    How to Make the Mask:

    • Mix 1 tablespoon fenugreek seed powder with 5 to 6 tablespoons of yogurt in a bowl.
    • Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/4 cup water to the mixture.
    • Set the mixture aside for 2 to 3 hours.
    • Apply the mask to your scalp and hair, covering it with a shower cap or wrapping your head in a muslin cloth or towel.
    • Leave it on for 20-30 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly. Wash with shampoo and let your hair dry naturally.

    Egg Yolk Hair Mask: Strengthen and Promote Hair Growth

    Eggs are your go-to ingredient for intensive protein hair treatment. Egg yolk is rich in protein, vitamins, fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E, promoting hair growth and preventing hair fall.

    How to Make the Mask:

    • Mix two egg yolks with 2 teaspoons of olive oil.
    • Add half a cup of water and mix well.
    • Apply the mixture evenly across your scalp using your fingers.
    • Wear a shower cap to let the mixture permeate your hair roots for 15-20 minutes.
    • Rinse the mask thoroughly out of your hair with shampoo (avoid using hot water to prevent “baking” the egg in your hair).

    So, ladies, it’s time to go natural when it comes to hair care. Treat your hair with these nourishing hair masks and let your mane shine with health and beauty!
