If you can’t afford expensive hair masks, try and make some at home, you will be surprised about their results and the effects on your hair. If your hair is dry, you can assume that if the ends are split and the hair breaks excessively, you can make a mask out of avocado, egg, yogurt and other products that prevent hair dryness by nourishing it. Dry hair lacks moisture and oil. Down below are presented some home treatments that could be useful for you.
- Take an avocado and peel it. In a bowl, mash it and mix with olive oil.
- Don’t use olive oil in case your hair is dyed. Olive oil can lighten the hair, and you can replace it with almond oil or jojoba oil.
- n wet hair apply the mask to the scalp and hair ends.
- Cover the head with a shower cap.
- After 25 – 30 minutes, gently massage the scalp with your fingers and wash off. Enjoy your smooth and beautiful hair!

Hot oil hair treatment at home
Oil must be applied weekly, as a beauty habit, to restore hair’s strength and health. To improve blood circulation, you must massage your head with hot oil (olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil). Improved blood flow gives to dull and dry hair enough moisture to maintain their softness and shine.
Your hair becomes dry, fragile and weak when it is overexposed to the sun, ironed or dryed with a hair dryer. You can take some benefit from hot oil, to add extra strength, moisture, and shine to dry hair.
Before applying oil you should wash your hair and make sure that it remains dirt-free, so the oil makes its way to hair follicles easily. The oil must be massaged into the scalp with your fingertips.
Another step forward is to bandage your head using two hot towels one above the other to trap the heat in your hair and let the hair cool down slowly. Leave the towels on your head for at least one hour, then wash the hair with shampoo till you get rid of oily sensation on your hair.
You should avoid styling products for your hair if it is thick, dry, dull and rough. Also, you should try to use shampoo less than twice a week while washing your hair. You can also make hair masks yourself as the ingredients for them can be found in your kitchen. Specialized hair chemistry is good but often natural ways of treating for damaged hair are more efficient and also are surely healthier. Enjoy the difference by choosing one of the offered natural ways of hair treating!
