Melanique Babb Lifestyle Blog

Blow dryers, flat irons, color treatments – can give you beautiful looking hair, but be detrimental to your hair health, leaving your hair dull, dry, and brittle.

Hair masks can help restore nutrients, moisture, and proteins to lifeless, dry hair. Here are a few natural but powerful, DIY hair mask recipes that you can make at home to bring your hair back to life.

Here are seven nutritious hair masks for damaged hair!

 

1. Olive Oil and Avocado Hair Mask

Olive oil is full of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are important for role hair growth, shine, and strength. They’re also full of antioxidants, which help fight off hair-aging free radicals.

Avocado contains amino acids and proteins which help stimulate the hair production process. It also moisturizes dry hair and soothes a dry scalp. This mask is amazing for dry, damaged hair. Honey provides antioxidant and moisturizing benefits.

Blend ingredients and apply in small sections to clean, damp hair. Cover hair with a shower cap for 30 to 60 minutes. Shampoo out and condition as usual.

2. Egg, Mayonnaise, Olive Oil, and Honey Hair Mask

Mayo isn’t just for sandwiches. Lipids in mayonnaise help hair absorb moisture and fatty acids, nourishing hair follicles. Olive oil and honey provide antioxidant and moisturizing benefits. And egg protein helps strengthen hair.
