DIY: HAIR MASKS FOR DRY/DAMAGED HAIR

I love hair masks, face masks, hand masks, you get it, all masks. When you find a good mask it will provide you with faster results that can make a huge difference in your skincare/hair routine and that can help you maintain those routines. One of my biggest struggles is dealing with my hair, it’s so frizzy currently dried out and brittle because I have an ombre/ balayage. I also suffer from an itchy scalp due to a mild case of psoriasis that comes and goes depending on my stress levels. If you have colored processed, dry , brittle, damaged hair, and/or an oily itchy scalp, then these masks might just do it for you!

OVERNIGHT OIL MASK

 Sweet Almond Oil- 3 tbsp 

Why?

-It contains omega 9,6, and 3 fatty acids that keep your hair strong and prevent breakage and hair loss

-It helps with split ends and fights dryness by locking moisture for longer periods of time

Olive Oil- 3 tbsp 

Why?

-It is rich in vitamins A, E and antioxidants that help protect the keratin in your hair and seals in moisture.

-It helps remove the buildup of sebum that impedes the formation of new hair follicles and hinders hair growth.

-It helps with frizz by making softening the hair without the added silicone ingredients used in conditioners that give your hair a] feeling of softness that only lasts for a few hours

Coconut oil-1 tbsp 

Why?

-Rich in anti-microbial properties, lauric acid, and medium-chain fatty acids

-It helps strengthen hair, condition the scalp, and help to regrow hair

-Reduces Frizz and lock moisture

HOW TO

  1. Mix the oils in a small microwave friendly bowl. I like to use just one tbsp of coconut oil mainly to treat the frizz in my hair. Coconut oil is amazing for hair but acts differently per individual. I have personally noticed that if I add too much it leaves my hair feeling greasy even after I wash off the oil, therefore I only add a bit
  2. Throw the bowl in the microwave for 5-10 seconds max! Do not do more or you will burn yourself, you want the oils to be warm
  3. Mix the oils together
  4. Place the mixture on DRY hair and slowly comb through with a wide tooth comb. I like to do it from ears down and not touch the scalp
  5. Throw on a shower cap (or plastic bag if you don’t have one, girl who cares) and go to bed
  6. Shampoo and condition as usual making sure you wash throughly the next day
  7. See and feel the difference

SCALP MASK 

Tea Tree Oil – 3 tbsp

Why?

-Removes dead cells, unblocks hair follicles, and boosts the immune system

– Relieves itchy scalp and helps with dandruff

Encourages hair growth

Sweet Almond Oil- 2 tbsp

Why?

Keeps scalp moisturized

Keeps dandruff away

Stimulate hair growth

Brown Sugar -2 tbsp

Why?

-It exfoliates the scalp removing dead skin cells

HOW TO

  1. Mix the oils in a small microwave friendly bowl
  2. Throw the bowl in the microwave for 5 seconds. Mix in the brown sugar
  3. Apply the mixture to your scalp with your finger tips. It might feel a bit tingly because of the tee tree oil. This is a good sign and it means its working
  4. Scrub and leave the mixture on your scalp for 5-10 mins
