10 DIY Hair Masks To Get You Through The Colder Months
An extreme seasonal shift not only cues a drastic change in your wardrobe, it also means that it's time to adjust your beauty routine. During the colder months, it's all about natural hair moisturizers (after you exfoliate with face and lip scrubs, of course!).
While we all know that the brisk bite of cold weather does a real number on your skin, it can also do some real damage to your hair. Luckily, it's just as easy to protect! Since we're all about stepping up our DIY beauty game, these 10 hair masks are all super simple to make, using only six all-natural ingredients or less to revitalize your mane. So what are you waiting for? Show your locks some love with these homemade natural hair moisturizers.
While we've all had an LOL-worthy hair fail or two, we're all about keeping our hair feeling and looking awesome. Here's our favorite hair-strengthening mask that's perfect for everyone, but works especially well on thin, damaged or dyed hair. (via Brit + Co)
If you have canned pumpkin lurking in your cabinets for Thanksgiving, this might be the most beneficial way to use some! Mix the vitamin-rich ingredient with moisturizing honey, slather it on your hair, then toss on a shower cap to keep it in place for about 15 minutes before you rinse. (via Henry Happened)
Alright, here is slightly uncomfortable natural ingredient number two: mayonnaise. This blogger insists you make your own, and since the condiment is made of whisked egg and oil — both repeat ingredients in many of these recipes — it makes a lot of sense after all. Hey, if you can slather it on a sandwich, you can definitely slather it on your hair! (At least that's what we're gonna tell ourselves!). (via Bespangled)
You see aloe vera listed as an ingredient in tons of skin products, but have you ever actually seen a leaf in real life? We love that this blogger takes the time to extract the gel herself — it's an inspiring move that's got us on the hunt for our own aloe plant! (via Little Green Dot)
If you're suffering from dry and flaky scalp this winter, a DIY sugar scalp scrub helps you get rid of dead skin and product build-up from shampoos, dry shampoos, and sprays, giving you less of a flat and dull look. It can also help your hair to grow because your follicles won't be clogged. (via Brit + Co)
This protein-rich milk and honey mask not only moisturizes and strengthens, but it also removes your hair's dead skin cells (thanks lactic acid!), which results in luscious, rejuvenated locks. Milk: it does a hairdo good! (via All Women Stalk)
