Homemade Hair Masks For Every Type Of Hair

Homemade hair mask

Welcome to Spa Week! All week long, we’ll be sharing our best tips for bringing the spa home. For Day 4 we’re making 4 different hair masks!

I love using hair masks, because they seem to do more for my hair than any other DIY hair treatment. As I’ve learned with some of my favorite cleaning techniques, time is a big factor! Letting the ingredients of your hair mask soak in 30 minutes or so really works wonders. Plus, it gives you 30 minutes to sit and relax – maybe try another one of our spa day treatments while you wait!

Homemade Hair Masks

For Dry Hair

This hair mask is packed with moisturizing ingredients. It will nourish and soften your hair, promote growth, and lock in the moisture that it provides.

Homemade Hair Masks

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk

Homemade Hair Masks

Before mixing in the other ingredients, smash your banana. You don’t want any chunks in there, but if you can’t mash them all out, just run the mask through a strainer. You probably have all the ingredients for this mask, you will love how it leaves your hair!

Mine definitely felt softer and thicker. If you’re hair is really dry, you can use this mask weekly. This made a lot of mask, and it doesn’t store well because of the banana. Half a batch would definitely be enough (unless your hair is really long)!

Homemade Hair Masks

For Dull Hair

If you hair is damaged from using products, leaving it dry and dull, this super simple hair mask will be perfect for you!

Homemade Hair Masks

Simply massage 1/2 cup of plain yogurt into your hair. That’s it! The milk fat will moisturize your hair while the lactic acid removes dirt and residue.

Homemade Hair Masks

For Oily Hair

Egg whites are the perfect remedy for oily hair! The egg white tightens the follicle, reducing the amount of oil that can be secreted. The lemon gets rid of any oils currently in your hair, leaving it lighter and with more body! A bit of salt also helps to strip the hair of oils and reside from hair products.

Homemade Hair Masks

  • 1 egg white
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon salt

Homemade Hair Masks

If you have a mixer handy, whip the egg whites into stiff peaks before adding the other ingredients. I didn’t do this step, but it will make it less runny and easier to apply.

Homemade Hair Masks

For an Itchy Scalp

If your head is itchy and you have a lot of dandruff, it may be caused by stress or a poor diet. You should definitely address these concerns, but in the meantime, try this hair mask to eliminate dandruff and leave your scalp feeling soft.

Homemade Hair Masks

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Homemade Hair Masks

The lemon juice gets rid of flakes and dry skin, while the oil moisturizes! This one separates quite a bit, so be sure to mix it really well right before applying.

After your mask has had time to sit, wash your hair normally. You should notice a difference right away! These treatments can be applied every other week. Enjoy!

  • I was wondering if these hair masks are safe for colored hair and how long they should be left on before rinsing? Thanks for all the helpful tips and tricks! ;)

  • I was also wondering if you apply these masks to dry/wet hair BEFORE washing, or wet hair AFTER washing and then wash again? Also, how long are you supposed to leave each mask on for? That being said….. I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all of your wonderful and helpful tips!!!!! So glad I subscribed!!!!! Hope you are having a GREAT New Year so far. Looking forward to MORE cool tips this year!!!!! Hugs

    • Either dry or wet hair is fine! You definitely need to wash your hair afterwards, to rinse out the mask. I just apply the mask to dry hair, but it’s a bit easier if you get it wet first. :-) Leave them on for 30 minutes.

    • You have to wash the mask out of your hair afterwards, so just apply it to dry hair! It will be a little easier if your hair is wet, but it’s not necessary. :-)

    • I have had the dry, itchy scalp without the dandruff, and have used Sea Breeze to counteract it, but this sounds like a good, inexpensive alternative!
