These 3-Ingredient DIY Hair Masks Will Transform Your Lifeless Hair

I absolutely dread oiling my hair for the fear of shampooing twice and thrice to get the oil out. My hair often feels dry, stripped of moisture and lifeless. I feel like the term ‘lazy girl hacks’ was coined for me. I don’t really use conditioner on a daily basis, or ever if I’m being honest. I am guilty of buying a new one every now and then, but it rarely ever ends up in my hair.

Over the years, I’ve tried some DIY hair masks using ingredients easily available at home. I make these easy hair masks using less than 3 household ingredients that are stocked in my kitchen. It makes washing your hair easier while hydrating and nourishing your hair. If there’s one ingredient all of my hair masks have in common, it’s coconut oil.

The Overnight Bounce Mask

DIY Hair Masks %286%29

My absolute favourite DIY Hair Mask that takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. You need only 2 ingredients, four, if you’re feeling fancy.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 tub of Aloe Vera Gel
  • 2-3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Castor Oil / Olive Oil (Optional)
  • 6-7 drops of Tea Tree Oil (Optional)

I buy one of those big tubs of Aloe vera gel you get at the chemist, pour in a little bit of coconut oil, put the lid back on and give it a good shake. The aloe vera gel will start to look whitish, like whipped cream. The tea tree oil and castor oil are totally optional, tea tree oil helps combat dandruff. So if that’s one of your concerns, add some tea tree oil. I apply this mixture to my scalp and hair about 2 hours before going to bed… It takes a while to dry. I wake up in the morning and shampoo my hair as usual and my hair feels soft, shiny and bouncy!

Frizz No More

DIY Hair Masks %285%29

This hair mask softens, smoothens and adds so much shine to your hair. And it’s no surprise. Honey is a natural humectant, it attracts moisture. Avocados are rich in fatty acids and work really well in repairing any damage to your mane while fighting frizz.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 an Avocado
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Put the ingredients in a blender and whip them until it makes for a smooth paste. You want to make sure the paste is not lumpy. It makes it really difficult to wash off those small lumps from your hair. If you think the mixture is too thick for your liking, add some water or an egg to make it thinner. Apply it to your hair and roots with a brush. Wash off after an hour or so. You won’t be able to stop touching your hair!
