Do you know of any great hair masks? Or any DIY hair masks to make at home? Also, how many times can I use a hair mask? Is it just once a week or month? Thanks :)
Generally using a hair treatment/mask should be used about once a week or twice a month depending on how damaged your hair is. You could use it more often than that if your hair is pretty damaged but it can make your hair oily if used near the roots too often :)
You can make your own hair masks with many things!
- Mayonnaise (full of natural fats for shine and moisture)
- Olive oil (oils sink into the hair for instant shine and moisture)
- Egg yolk (protein for strong hair),
- Avocado (natural fats for shine and moisture)
- Coconut oil (light weight oil sinks into thirsty, dry strands)
You can choose one or a few to use at a time by mixing up your own little concoction. All these ingredients will soak up best if the ingredients are warm/room temperature so take any cold ingredients out of the fridge prior to using. Let them soak into your hair for a good amount of time, the longer the better!
My personal favorite hair masks that you can buy are
Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Hair Masque, by far my fav! Makes my hair healthy, shiny and soft. Been my go to hair repair mask for years. Probably my favorite hair care brand in general their leave in oil is also my go to hair oil/serum!
A great drugstore hair mask would have to be the Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm. A great affordable, repairing hair mask!
