Not only are DIY hair masks easy and inexpensive to do at home, but they can also give you shiny locks and help banish itchy scalp and flakes.
The key is to find recipes with moisturizing ingredients like mashed avocado or bananas, or plant-based oils such as olive, coconut and avocado. Honey also has great benefits: As a natural humectant and antibacterial agent, it attracts and locks in moisture while killing bacteria. These emollients will hydrate the scalp while decreasing inflammation and scaling.
Once you’ve mixed up your hair mask, rub it into your scalp and hair and leave it on for about 20 minutes to allow the mask to work its magic before shampooing it out.
