Is your hair dry, drab, and brittle? Do the ends break off when you reach for a comb or brush your fingers through your hair? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you could use a hair mask. DIY hair masks for dry damaged hair are going to be your hairs best friend when you’re on a budget and your hair needs some love.
The first thing you will need for the DIY hair mask is unrefined organic extra virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is one of the best oils for your hair due to its molecular structure. This oil has been proven to actually penetrate the cortex of your hair shaft instead of just coating it (which is what other products and ingredients usually do). This actually helps restore the hair improving its strength and preventing breakage.
The next ingredient you will need to add to your DIY hair mask for dry hair is an egg. Eggs are a very popular DIY ingredient. Eggs are healthy for our hair because they contain a lot of protein as well as vitamins such as vitamin A, D, and E. This will help improve the shininess and overall health of the hair because it hydrates and moisturizes.
Applying the DIY hair mask is very simple. Warm up the coconut oil in a pot but make sure that it’s not boiling or too hot. You should be able to touch it. Then simply mix it with an egg. Apply the mask directly to your hair concentrating on the ends where it is the driest. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and then rinse out!
