Hair masks give a deep conditioning treatment to your hair, treating the ongoing damage and fortifying it from future assaults. However, readymade cosmetic hair masks though easily available do more harm than good in the long run.
In such a scenario it is better to make hair masks at home that protect and treat the hair quite effectively besides being completely safe.
Ways To Make A Homemade Hair Mask
Hair Mask Using Olive Oil
Mix some olive oil with a beaten egg and apply on your hair thoroughly. Keep it on the hair for half an hour. To prevent dripping it is better to use a plastic wrap around the head.
After half an hour rinse the mixture off completely using cool water which will prevent the egg from congealing on the head. Another alternate mask can be prepared using a mixture of olive oil with honey which can be used in the similar manner as above.
Hair Mask Using Oatmeal
Mix equal quantities of oat, milk and some almond oil and mix in a bowl in such a manner that a paste of thick and even consistency is achieved. Use a wide-toothed comb to remove all tangles from your tresses and then thoroughly apply the mixture using your fingers. Keep it on for half an hour and then rinse thoroughly.
