Homemade Honey DIY Hair Masks

All women who have dry, damaged or frizzy hair, go to the salon to get a hair treatment that can moisturize and nourish their hair. But the hair treatment in salons has some chemicals used on it. If you don’t want a chemical treatment and you are looking for a simple natural remedy to smoothen your hair, here are some DIY Hair Masks made with honey.

How Honey Benefits the Hair?

Honey has both emollient and humectant properties. Usually, emollients for hair are hydrophobic oils that form on the surface of the hair. This is why honey is a great moisturizer. Emollients smoothen the hair follicles and also add shine to dull hair. While the humectants bond with water molecules and add moisture to the dry stands of the hair. Honey can also restore the natural lusted of your hair.

Below are the type of DIY Honey Masks that is pure natural and no chemicals involved:

Directions:

Mix the honey and olive oil together. Put in the microwave for a few seconds. Mix it again after heating. Then you can apply from the scalp to the end of your hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes.

If you only apply a honey, its result can get very sticky. So I recommend you add an olive oil to your mask to help smooth and coat the hair. If you are having a hard time removing the oil out of your hair, simply sprinkle a baking soda on your scalp and massage it with your fingertips. 

You can still shampoo and condition your hair like you normally do. 

Keep in mind that you can only Apply mask once a week.

The lactic acid in yogurt cleanses the scalp, while the proteins nourish and strengthen the hair. The coconut oil penetrates the hair leaving it shiny, lustrous and smooth. The moisturizing properties also prevent split ends. If you have dryer hair types, you can deep condition it 1 – 2 times a week.

Add more oil depending on your hair length, hair type (dry hair = more oil) so the banana won’t stick to the hair shafts. Shampoo twice to remove mask left over. Continue rinsing with shampoo and conditioner. This can be applied once a week or once every few weeks.
