DIY Hair Masks for Dry Hair. With the help of some natural ingredients and a bit of planning, you can create a very easy hair mask that can be used on wet hair. There are some ingredients in a hair mask that may cause your hair to become dry; therefore, care should be taken not to use harsh products while creating your own DIY hair mask.
A simple olive oil and cream form a base for your DIY hair mask, which you can then add your preferred ingredients. Once your own DIY hair mask has been created, allow it to soak for around 15 minutes so that the ingredients have time to work on your hair.
You will need to gather the following ingredients: ovdm shampoo ovdm conditioner olive oil olive soap oatmeal bar soap or sponge oatmeal Natural dry hair mask Recipes like these can easily be found on the internet, or you can visit your local health food or vitamin store.
Other very good DIY hair mask recipes include: Coconut milk, egg, honey, yogurt, apple, cucumber, lime juice, orange juice, wheat germ oil, aloe vera gel, or jojoba wax. Most people find that adding one tablespoon of each ingredient to one half cup of water works well. Adding a few drops of essential oils such as lavender works well, as well as Rosemary or mint extracts. For a very pleasant smelling mask, try using fresh mint leaves.
As your DIY hair mask is soaking in your hands, use a little bit of natural massage therapy to get the maximum benefits from your homemade mask. Use your fingertips to massage your scalp gently. Work your fingers and palms into your hair and wrap it in a towel so that no air can escape. Next, apply the mask by pressing it gently into your scalp. Massaging the mask into your hair will open up any cuticles and stimulate blood circulation to your follicles and root.
Once you have allowed your DIY hair mask for dry hair to soak in your hands, you will then rinse them out. The best way to do this is to use a wet towel to blot your hair dry before you put it away in the rinse water. Leaving your hair in the water for too long might damage your hair. Rinse out the mask with warm or lukewarm water.
If you want to add more moisture, you can try adding a little bit of olive oil, coconut oil, or grapeseed oil to the mix. Again, wrap your hair in a towel to allow for maximum absorption. You will probably want to massage the mask deep into your hair so that you can add more natural oils, such as olive oil, at the roots.
The olive oil will give your dry hair a nice, even shine and protect it from the elements, while the coconut and grapeseed oils will help restore the natural luster of your hair. If you need a little extra moisture, you could also try using a combination of olive oil, or grape seed oil. This is a very effective mask for dry hair.
A DIY hair mask for dry hair can also be used to moisturize your hair after a hot iron, when the heat opens up your pores and adds moisture. The same thing can happen if you use a steam iron to style your hair. Adding a little bit of olive oil or coconut oil before you blow-dry your hair can seal in some of the moisture. Once you have dried your hair with a blow-dryer, you can then apply a mask. This will provide even more moisture and help protect your hair from environmental damage caused by heat, pollution, and even dirt.
You don’t have to use all of the product yourself. Using a natural clay mask is an excellent idea to provide extra moisture to dry hair. All you need is about one teaspoon of the powder mixed with one half to one full cup of water. Apply to damp hair and wrap it up with a plastic shower cap. If you are going to do this, be sure not to add any other conditioner to the clay, since the product will seal in moisture without adding any additional conditioner.
As you can see, there are plenty of great options out there for a DIY hair mask for dry hair. These masks are made from all natural ingredients that will help restore your hair’s natural healthy look. They are easy to make and will provide years of benefits, if you allow them to sit on your hair. If you’re not sure what kind of mask would best suit your type of hair, consult with a professional hair stylist who can customize a solution just for you.
