Is the cold winter weather drying out your curly tresses? The low temperatures coupled with the wind chill could completely strip the moisture from your hair and lead to severe breakage. Open up those kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities and browse through your pantry this winter to find the ingredients for these do-it-yourself hair masks that will keep your curls conditioned and looking good throughout the winter.
Banana, Avocado & Oil
Bananas and avocados are full of nutrients that can increase the moisture content of our hair, smooth frizz, and soothe an itchy scalp. Use this mask once a month for best results!
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tablespoon of oil (olive oil, wheat germ oil). Pick an oil, any oil!
Use a blender to mix these ingredients well or mix them together in a bowl. After shampooing, apply to towel-dried hair in sections from root to tip. Cover using a shower cap (or plastic bag) for at least 20 minutes and rinse.
