1.  Egg and Honey

Author: Cory Seward cseward15

Crack one egg and whisk it with a fork. Add a teaspoon full of honey and mix the two well. You can also add a few drops of virgin olive/coconut oil for deep nourishment.

Take a brush and apply this mix from the roots all the way up to the ends of the hair. Since beaten eggs are runny, this pack could come trickling down on area surrounding the scalp. Hence keep a towel wrapped around to absorb off anything that drips. 

Keep this mask on for 20-30 minutes. Shampoo and condition as usual. 

If you are worried about the egg leaving an after smell, rinse your hair with a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water or Soda Bi Carbonate mixed with water just before you apply your shampoo.

Eggs are known to provide extremely beneficial results to hair. Eggs combined with anything would make for a nutritious hair mask. If not in combination, an egg alone is a powerhouse of a product that can give fantastic results on its own.

2. Avocado Hair Mask

Avocados help in restoring the smoothness & shine of the hair. 

Take 1 avocado, scoop out its flesh and mash it well. You can add some milk or milk cream to to make it richer. Apply this mix from roots unto the ends. Leave it for half an hour, followed by shampoo & conditioning as usual.

Yoghurt not only soothes dry hair but also provides coolness on the scalp. Honey on the other hand promotes hair growth, shine & improves conditioning. 

So get both the ingredients together  - 2 Tablespoons yogurt & 1 tablespoon honey and mix together. Apply the pack on the hair. This pack helps in infusing moisture into the hair.

Needless to mention, if your hair are longer, you may want to increase the proportion of yogurt & honey by tablespoon or two.

4. Banana & Milk Hair Mask

Take 1 banana, 1/2 a cup of milk and blend them together to form a thick paste. Apply on your hair and wash off after 20 - 30 minutes.

Bananas are rich in vitamins & potassium, so why not add some of that goodness on the head. Moreover, this is also a great DIY hair mask for curly hair.

5. Aloe Vera Mask

Just like eggs, Aloe Vera  in itself is good enough to be used alone on the hair.

If Aloe vera gel suits you then you may want to try combining  the gel with items like coconut oil, castor oil, yogurt & honey to make more aloe vera gel based hair masks.
