DIY Hair Masks


Since that stormy weather took hold, there’s quite a lot of us that could do with some TLC!

With our hair being whipped into a frenzy as soon as we step outside the door, we’ve taken a look around for some great DIY hair masks for every hair type that will bring your hair back to life.

You can make these concoctions out of what you have in your cupboard at home. Cheap as chips!

Avocado and Honey

avocado-and-honeyAvocado is definitely a super food, but who knew it could benefit your hair too! They’re rich in vitamin E and protein, which help to keep your hair in tip top shape. These mask suits every type of hair going!

To make the mask you’ll need to scoop out the flesh from a ripened avocado and mix in a tablespoon of organic honey.

Pop it onto your hair and allow it to sit for 20 minutes, before rinsing away.

Banana, Honey and Almond


Clearly, it’s all about the honey! In fact, it has a natural anti bacterial effect. The banana and almond oil will add plenty of moisture to the hair.

This mask will work wonders for frizzy hair or hair that’s prone to dandruff.

Simply, mash together half a ripe banana, two tablespoons of honey and a few drops of almond oil. Leave it on your hair with a shower cap for 20 minutes and then rinse off.

Olive Oil and Egg


As odd as this one sounds, egg has long been celebrated for packing a protein punch that will encourage hair growth.

This one is great for lack lustre, dry locks.

Just throw three tablespoons of olive oil in with two eggs and pop on your hair for 20 minutes. We recommend a thorough rinse with this one!

Lemon and Apple Cider Vinegar

lemonThis is a good remedy for oil hair, as well as hair that is prone to dandruff.

Both ingredients kill bacteria and get rid of any product build up. We’re all guilty of using too much styling products!

Mix a quarter of a cup of apple cider vinegar with the grated zest of one whole lemon and allow it to set for 15 minutes. This will absorb any excess oil that’s floating around. As always, rinse it away afterwards.

Will you be trying any?

    for the olive oil and eggs, add a bit of lemon juice so the smell is a bit more bearable 😉
