Homemade masks to boost your hair care routine

Hydrating the hair is a fundamental step for a hair care routine. That guarantees beautiful, shiny, smooth and healthy strands. There are several products on the market with this function, but some people still love the old way: looking for results in homemade natural masks.

DIY recipes are all time classics, and if you are a fan of traditional self-care, this article will show you some homemade hair masks to boost your hair care routine.

The importance of hair masks

During our daily hair care routine, conditioners are responsible for sealing our cuticles and providing instantaneous hydration. Their role in keeping healthy and moisturized hair is undeniable, but this is not enough: we need deeper treatments that only hair masks can provide.

It doesn’t matter if you are using cosmetics or DIY hair masks: keep the habit of using them at least once a week, to achieve lustrous and silky locks. 

Homemade hair mask for all hair types

This recipe is perfect for all hair types. It doesn’t matter if your hair is curly, straight, oily, dry or normal – it always works out.

  • 1/2 cup of yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon tea-tree oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Combine all ingredients and apply to freshly washed hair. Leave it for 30 minutes and rinse it with cold water.


Homemade mask for dry hair

If you have dry hair, this mask is great for shine and moisture.

  • 1½ avocados
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon  manuka honey
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1-3 drops of an essential oil of your choice (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender, apply all over the hair, and leave it for 45 minutes. Then, wash it out with shampoo and conditioner as usual.


Homemade hair mask for oily hair
