1 Banana + Honey
Honey works wonder on dry skin and hairs by restoring the moisture. It is a must apply remedy on dry and dull hairs. Banana being rich in vitamins strengthens the hairs from root to tip. It also makes hair look bouncy and lustrous.
Method: Take a banana and blend it in a grinder. Add a tablespoon of honey and blend again and again until a very smooth paste is achieved. If the paste still looks chunky, add some olive oil to it but don’t add more honey.
Precaution: If the paste will not be smooth then you are going to have a very tough time in washing it away. Moreover, excess of honey added can make your hair sticky and difficult to wash. Thus olive oil is a best choice to make the paste more fine as it itself is a wonderful moisturizer.
For dry, frizzy and tangled hairs
2 Coconut oil + Olive oil
It may not look like a hair mask to you at all since it is nothing but combination of oils. But mind you, this combination works no less than a wonderful hair mask.
Method: Take some olive oil in a bowl. Add coconut oil to it in almost double quantity. The net volume desired should be in accordance with the length of your hairs. Massage the mixture into your hairs and scalp deeply. Let it work for almost an hour. Then wash it with your normal shampoo and conditioner.
Tip for better results: If your situation is quite worse then you should give steam treatment to your hairs. Take boiling water and soak your towel into it. Wrap it around your hairs for 10-15 minutes. Do it twice or thrice in one session.
