You can create a fabulous DIY hair mask for dry hair from ingredients you probably already have at home, except glycerin, but it’s inexpensive and commonly found in the skin care area of most drug stores.
Each ingredient improves the health of your hair, while also moisturizing, reducing frizziness and making it look smooth, shiny and beautiful.
Best of all, this won’t cost a fortune to make or take forever to see the effects. You’ll notice the difference immediately and see even more improvement each time you use it.
Why These Ingredients:
Milk & Butter
Milk products play a prominent role. The first important ingredient is butter. Organic butter from grass fed cows that is unsalted is best.
Butter contains many fatty acids the hair absorbs that make your hair healthier, while also smoothing the hair and adding moisture. Milk is the second of the dairy products used.
Olive Oil & Castor Oil
They also contain many vitamins and nutrients important to hair health, such as vitamin E and Omega fatty acids.
Both ingredients help make hair more manageable and both aid in making hair smooth and soft. While not everyone will have castor oil, it’s another inexpensive item you can find at your local drug store.
It’s also used for many other beauty treatments for the hair and skin.
Honey is another ingredient found in this hair mask. Honey is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture and prevents loss of moisture content.
Be careful when you choose your honey for the hair mask. Many commercial types of inexpensive commercial honey are diluted with water and sugar to make it less expensive.
Try to find local honey and even better, raw honey. Honey also has antibacterial properties, It stimulates the growth of hair and makes it more manageable.
