8 Amazing Homemade Hair Masks For Different Hair Problems
I am so excited to write this blog post because today I am going to talk about homemade hair masks. A lot of people think since we’re in the makeup and skincare industry we use every great made product there is in the market. That’s not entirely true at all. There are many times in my life when old-school skin and hair care tips worked wonders for me. Homemade hair masks are no different. Finding which one is great, though, can be tricky especially when you have so many options! That’s why I came up with this.
I love these homemade hair masks since most of the ingredients are found in your pantry or fridge. In fact, you eat some of them! In our list, you may notice some of the ingredients are found in other hair masks, and that’s fine. It only goes to show they are great for your hair. For this post, however, I wish to concentrate on the main ingredient and tell you why it’s ideal for a specific hair issue.
1. Hair Mask For Frizzy Hair

Do you have a hard time taming your hair? Does it usually appear freaked out? Then you’ve got frizzy hair. It happens when the hair isn’t able to retain moisture and, in turn, sheen. To bring it back, you need some good oil, which you can derive from avocado. Not only that, this guacamole fixture can also help strengthen your strands, which may be prone to breakage when dry. Here’s a recipe you can try.
2. Hair Mask For Damaged Hair

I can cite hundreds of reasons why you have damaged hair, but most of these can be managed with one of the best homemade hair masks using coconut oil. This oil can improve moisture, bring back shine, strengthen your hair, avoid split ends, and a whole lot more! If there’s one hair mask product you should always keep close to you, it will be this. Here’s a great tutorial for you. PS: Coconut oil is also equally awesome for the skin as a moisturizer and even a treatment for sunburn. Wowza!
3. Hair Mask For Colored Hair

One of the important things to consider when you want to use a DIY hair mask recipe for colored hair is the preservation of its color, and it turns out cucumber is awesome with that since it doesn’t strip off the colors, improves hair texture, maintains its shine, and helps repair damaged hair, which can happen during treatments.

4. Hair Mask For Oily Hair

The problem with oily hair isn’t just cosmetic. Impurities can get trapped ibn your hair, causing itchiness. It also increases the risk of dandruff and hair loss as the follicles of the hair become clogged. The good news is one of the homemade hair masks for oily hair is a common ingredient in healthy salads! It’s apple cider vinegar or ACV. It helps regulate pH balance and production of sebum, as well as truly cleanses your hair. If that isn’t enough, ACV can also improve your hair’s shine. I tried this before so I know what I’m talking about. 🙂 Check out this ACV honey hair mask recipe.
5. Hair Mask For Regrowth

How do you grow your hair? One of the biggest secrets is actually an egg, but then what’s the relationship between hair and egg? Although it isn’t obvious, hair is made up of proteins called keratin. Eggs, on the other hand, is one of the greatest sources of proteins. In fact, you will find keratin in the layers of the egg’s membranes! Creating an egg hair mask is easy-peasy. Just follow this tutorial.
6. Hair Mask For Hair Loss

There are plenty of reasons why you’re losing hair. It could be you’re pulling the strands tight when you tie them in a bun or when you’re combing. It could be because of hormonal problems. But one of the biggest reasons has something to do with fungal infections, which can damage the follicles of the hair, causing the strands to break easily and even prevent good hair growth. If this is your problem, a practical and super-easy homemade hair mask you can try is a honey recipe! The sweet, sweet honey – which I love to use as a spread on my toast, by the way – has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.
7. Hair Mask For Dandruff

I hate dandruff! It’s one of the typical hair problems I deal with. Thankfully, science has given me great anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners. But once in a while, I do a lemon hair mask. So what’s up with the lemon?
Dandruff and flakes are dead skin cells. They can occur in various parts of the body including the brows. Flaking or shedding of dead skin cells is perfectly normal. What isn’t is if it becomes uncontrollable, which results to more noticeable dandruff.
Lemons contain a huge amount of citric acid, which can tone the scalp, restore its pH level, and remove the dead skin cells. But the best thing is they have anti-fungal properties. A lot of people are not aware one of the leading causes of dandruff is, well, fungus! So say goodbye to dandruff right now with this simple recipe.
8. Hair Mask For Dull Or Dry Hair

One of the sought-after homemade hair masks contains aloe vera. This succulent plant has certain enzymes that regulate the production of dead skin cells of the scalp. It is also an excellent conditioner! Why else should it be a popular ingredient in many commercial hair care products? It leaves your hair shiny, strong, and healthy – definitely hardly any trace of dullness. What I like aloe vera is it isn’t difficult to plant and grow, and if I’m not using it on my hair, I use the meat for juices.
