DIY Beauty Treats for Dry Hair

Everyone wants beautiful, shiny and healthy hair but we can't always afford expensive treatments and products, why not try some of these easy peasy recipes you can make at home? You don't need to spend a fortune as there a great number of natural treatments that you can use to improve the condition of your hair, most of which you'll probably already have in your kitchen! These are some of our favourite recipes for hair masks that work amazingly well but cost very little...

Creamy Avocado Mask

If you have a dry hair that is in desperate need of moisture, then try this creamy avocado mask. Avocado is one of the nature’s super foods as its oils and proteins will smooth and moisturise your locks.

Mix one avocado and a few drops of olive oil in a bowl, then add an egg yolk and a teaspoon of natural yogurt, then mix until it becomes a green paste. Once mixed, apply it on your hair, leave for around 15 minutes and wash it off with your normal shampoo. Dry your hair as normal. You hair will become super soft and much healthier looking!

Honey Mask

This honey hair mask is amazing for nourishing, moisturising and softening your hair. First, mix half a cup of honey with a teaspoon of yoghurt. Then add a tea spoon of olive oil and one egg, blend all of the ingredients together. Then, apply the mixture on your hair evenly throughout your hair focusing on the ends of the hair (as it will help to prevent split ends). Leave it for around 15 minutes then wash your hair as normal.

Banana Mask

Bananas can work absolute magic on your hair and scalp, the oily texture is great for nourishing and moisturising dry and damaged hair. Start with mixing banana with one tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Mash it together until it gets to be smoothie-like puree and apply it on your hair and scalp. Leave it for around 30 minutes and wash your hair thoroughly with shampoo, the perfect excuse to relax in the bath with a magazine!

Pumpkin Mask

Now, if you like cooking roasted vegetables and have some pumpkin (or sweet potato) left over, then you can you can make an amazing pumpkin mask for your hair and face. Make sure your pumpkin leftover does not contain salt before you prepare your mask though.

Pumpkin contains superb ingredients such as Vitamins A and C, Potassium, Zinc as well as beta-carotene, which gives it that lovely orange colour. To prepare your hair mask add 1-2 tablespoons of honey to a cup of pumpkin puree and mix it together. Apply to your hair and scalp, then leave for around 15 minutes. Rinse your hair and wash with shampoo as normal. Pumpkin is so nourishing that you can also apply it to your face for that extra special treat!

Coconut Oil Conditioner

Coconut is full of wonderful properties which will do wonders for your dry hair. Coconut oil is heavy, so use it sparingly if you have fine or thin hair. To start, mix coconut oil with two egg yolks till it becomes a creamy gold paste. Then wash your hair and massage the mixture you have made throughout your hair ensuring the ends are also covered. Leave for 15-20 minutes and rinse out with water for shiny, soft and tropical scented hair, yum! 

Apple Vinegar conditioner

If you feel your hair isn't as shiny as you'd like and feel it needs an extra boost, then try this amazing Apple Vinegar conditioner! Add an egg to a half tea cup of Apple Vinegar, one tablespoon of Olive Oil and a few drops of glycerine to make this rich nourishing mask that will leave your hair beautifully soft and shiny. After shampooing your hair, apply it throughout and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and then style your hair as you usually do. This mask will do miracles to your dry and damaged hair!

  1. I've used coconut oil as a hair mask before and it did make my hair more soft and manageable! I think I'll try avocado next, thank you!

  2. Thanks for these! I've only tried the honey and avacado ones. I've got some coconut oil to use to a may try this one next.


  3. I would avoid using egg if your hair is actually dry - this will add protein to your hair and can make it seem slightly drier. Though the effect isn't as bad when combined with moisturising ingredients! x
