There are a lot of great commercial hair masks that you can turn to for helping dry hair regain moisture. However, you can also find very effective ways for the hair to quench that need for moisture as a less expensive alternative from ingredients that you have in your kitchen. Today, I thought you might benefit from this wonderful homemade hair mask for moisture that has saved my hair lately.
I already shared a few homemade hair masks with you so you are probably wondering why I keep experimenting with new versions. The reason that I do switch my hair mask recipes depends on what ingredients are currently in my refrigerator or pantry. This particular one delivered even better than I expected so I couldn’t keep it to myself. After all, it has sensational nourishing ingredients with it avocado, banana, mayo, honey, and additional vitamin E.
You can use mayonnaise, which is my preferred recommendation. Since my hair is thick as well as dry and has a curl to it, the mayonnaise seems to moisturize it more thoroughly than the olive oil. The explanation for why it might perform better is probably due to all the protein from the eggs in it. Another reason I like it is because the eggs also have L-cysteine, an amino acid that strengthens while giving the hair more gloss as it does its magic.
Unless you have a problem with oily hair, you may want to substitute the olive oil or coconut oil. However, if your strands are damaged and suffering, then I would go with the mayo.
When you get a chance, I hope that you try the recipe for this homemade hair mask for moisture because it really did improve the condition of my dry hair.
Homemade Hair Mask for Moisture
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1 tablespoon of honey
½ ripe avocado
1 small or medium ripe banana
1 vitamin E 400-unit capsule
Instead of just mashing the ripe banana and avocado, I found it easier to take out my food processor, blender or even a mixer to get them into a spreadable consistency.
Next, I add the mayo, honey and squeeze out the contents of the vitamin E capsule. If you’re using the coconut oil, you may want to warm it up before adding it.
Apply this mixture to all of your hair, but focus more on a few inches beyond the roots and concentrate on the middle length to the ends of the hair. This will be sloppy, but I like to wrap my head with some cling wrap before adding a towel turban.
You can leave this on for about 15 minutes, but I suggest keeping it on as long as possible such as 45 minutes or an hour before rinsing this out and shampooing as usual.
