Hair masque

Conditioning of hair is done as part of a routine hair care regimen. Each time you shampoo, ensure that you use a hair conditioner that suits your hair type. Dry and damaged hair might need more than just this conditioning.

You can go in for deep conditioning of your hair with a suitable hair masque. These hair masques are hair care products that are formulated to close the hair cuticles thereby making your hair appear shiny and smooth. Excessive dry, weakened and damaged hair would do well with the nourishment of a hair masque.

Typically you can use a hair masque once in a month. Go in for homemade hair masques if you prefer natural ingredients. You can include a hair masque in your regular home care for the hair. This would also work out more economical than expensive salon treatments.

Harness the bounty of natural ingredients and make your own homemade hair masque. From shea butter and avocado to extra virgin olive oil and eggs, the moisturizing properties work well on dry lifeless hair. Always apply a homemade hair masque to wet hair to enable better penetration. Leave on for about 20 - 30 minutes to allow the hair to soak in the moisturizing ingredients.

You can place a shower cap after you have applied the homemade hair masque to prevent drips and stains. The heat generated under the plastic cap would also aid further conditioning of the hair. Ensure that you rinse the hair well to remove the masque completely.


Homemade hair masque recipes

Banana and Honey Masque: Bananas are full of healthy ingredients including trytophan (an amino acid) and potassium. Mash one banana. Add 1tsp honey and 1 tsp yogurt. Blend the mixture until smooth or for about two minutes in a food processor. Lightly wet your hair. Pour masque mixture into your hair and massage through the scalp slowly. Pay attention to dry ends.

After few minutes of massaging, pile your hair on top and cover it with shower cap. Leave the hair masque for 15 to 20 minutes. If your hair is dry, leave on the masque for at least 30 minutes. Rinse initially with warm water and later with cool water to lock in moisture. Allow hair to dry naturally. Once dry, your hair will feel soft and supple.

Avocado Hair Masque: Mash a ripe avocado with full-fat mayonnaise and cream it into a smooth blend. Apply on your hair, paying due attention to damaged hair ends. Work a soft massage on your scalp. Leave on for about half hour. An interesting twist to this homemade hair masque recipe is to use ripe mashed avocado with egg and extra virgin olive oil.
