4 DIY Hair Masks To Breathe Life Into Dry & Dull Hair

How many times have you wished your hair was as gorgeous as that Photoshopped magazine model’s tresses? With the right kind of hair spa and treatment you can get that look, but not before they burn a big hole in your pocket. We show you a few DIY hair masks that will hydrate your dry and dull hair.

DIY hair masks for dry hair 1. Coconut Oil Mask

What You Need:
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon amla powder (available at the local chemist shop)
1 teaspoon almond oil
1 teaspoon jaswand (hibiscus) powder (available at the local chemist or ayurvedic medicine store)
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel (use the local beauty product you use for your skin; try to find one without artificial fragrances)

How To: Mix all the ingredients into a thick past and apply from root to end. If your hair is too dry, spray some water, so that the application becomes easy. Keep it for half an hour and wash it off with a mild shampoo.

Advantages: This mask has coconut and almond oil to hydrate your hair, along with amla powder and jaswand powder to strengthen your hair from further damage. The aloe vera will also hydrate and seal the moisture in the hair.

2. Olive Oil Mask

What You Need:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon mayonnaise or curd
½ ripe avocado, mashed

How To: Whip the curd or mayonnaise with oil till it has a light consistency. Apply like regular oil from roots to ends. Wrap your head in a hot towel if possible and wash off in 15 to 20 minutes without a conditioner.

Advantages: Olive oil works wonders for the skin, and now your hair can benefit from its quality, too. It replenishes your hair with hydration. The mayonnaise or curd is sticky and ensures that your hair looks conditioned and shiny.

3. Milk Mask

What You Need:
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ banana mashed

How To: Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl with a spoon. Use a blender if needed. Apply on your hair from root to tip and let it stay for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo.

Advantages: Milk is sticky and helps regain moisture, along with olive oil. Banana is rich in potassium and antioxidants that help strengthen and hydrate your roots.

4. Curd+Vinegar Mask

What You Need:
3 tablespoons curd (homemade only)
3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (buy here)

How To: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and apply from root to tip. Let it be for 15 minutes and wash with a light fragrant shampoo, as vinegar can leave a strange smell in your hair. Avoid adding a lot of vinegar as it can cause a light burning sensation on your scalp.

Advantages: As mentioned earlier, yoghurt helps moisturise your hair. The mild acidic properties of vinegar help clear your hair of any product build-up as well as make it more manageable and shiny.

These measurements should be ideal for shoulder-length hair. You can make slight proportion changes as per the length of your hair. Try these masks over the weekend when you have more time to apply and wash your hair.
