Does your hair need a little extra TLC? Having hair that is free from frizz, less damaged, and voluminous is something that we all strive to have! To help out our hair, it’s common to go to the salon and spend hundreds of dollars on a routine that may not work and most likely uses chemicals and dyes that can actually be harmful.

With the right ingredients that you probably have hanging around in your kitchen, you can mix up your own homemade, all-natural hair masks right at home to make your own built in spa!

It’s also important to stay hydrated, eat healthy foods and to try and avoid washing your hair every day. Over washing your hair can cause a dry scalp, which can cause dandruff. Over washing can also strip away the natural oils that nourish your hair. Using these DIY hair masks will condition your hair and help prevent breakage while being a healthier way to repair damaged hair of all types. Lather up your hair with these homemade recipes for a relaxing, spa-like experience.


There are so many ways to apply a hair mask. Some recommend damp clean hair, and some recommend completely dry 3rd day hair. Personally, we like to apply a hair mask when hair is almost completely dry. We recommend combing it into 3 sections so you can evenly distribute the mask. Depending on the mask directions it may sit for 10 minutes, 3 hours, or overnight. It’s mostly preference, and according to mask directions. You can also put a heat cap on and blow dry your hair on a low heat so the mask can penetrate the hair. It’s up to you what kind of effort you want to put into your hair mask. The only step that doesn’t change is that you always wash your hair after.



  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Combine water and vinegar in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup and set aside.
  2. Combine avocado, banana, egg, and oil in blender or food processor. Puree until no clumps are present.
  3. Massage prepared mask into scalp and comb through hair with fingers or a wide-toothed comb. Cover hair with shower cap and leave in for 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse hair with cool water and wash normally with regular shampoo.
  5. After shampooing rinse hair thoroughly and then pour vinegar/water mixture over hair. Let vinegar sit on hair for 1-2 minutes then rinse and condition as normal.

The combination of ingredients might sound a little strange, but they will really work on damaged hair. The egg acts as a cleaning agent, while the avocado and banana help moisturize and give hair natural shine. Apple cider vinegar is really a magical ingredient, making the second step really important. Since it’s so acidic, the vinegar will help prevent dandruff and dry scalp and also give shine.



  • 5 Tbsps. of mayonnaise
  • 2 raw eggs
  • 1 Tsp. of vinegar or olive oil


  1. Pour 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise into a bowl and add 2 raw eggs. Use a whisk to mix them together until fully blended. It is best to mix the treatment by hand to avoid turning it into a liquid that won’t adhere to your hair. Add a teaspoon of vinegar or olive oil for extra shine if you have coarse hair.
  2. Dip your hands into the mixture and pull it through your hair from root to tip. Continue until your hair is completely coated.
  3. Pull a plastic shower cap on over your hair. Heat up a towel in the dryer and wrap it around the shower cap. The heat from the towel will help the moisture soak into your hair.
  4. Leave the mask in place for 20 minutes and then rinse your hair completely with warm water.
  5. Pour a dime-sized amount of sulfate-free shampoo into the palm of your hand and work it into the roots of your hair with your fingertips before rinsing well. This removes any buildup without stripping your hair of the moisture and protein.
  6. Gently towel dry the ends of your hair and style as desired. Apply the treatment once or twice a week.

Sorry to all the mayonnaise haters out there! This homemade hair mask uses only two simple ingredients (eggs and mayo), and even though these ingredients sound a little strange, they are known to be a powerful combination for dry hair. The oil found in the mayonnaise will deeply moisturize hair and give it its shine back. The egg serves as a cleaning agent as well as sealing in moisture to your hair. The egg, specifically the yolk, can cut through grease and dirt found in hair to make it clean. For coarser hair that’s lacking in the shine department, add in a splash of olive oil or apple cider vinegar.



  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon Argan oil
  • A few drops of essential oil good ones for hair are lavender, peppermint, rosemary, geranium and clary sage


  1. Melt coconut oil and shea butter together in microwave or double broiler (I find a Pyrex measuring cup in a saucepan of hot water works well.)
  2. Let mixture cool until almost solidified then add the argan oil.
  3. Whip together for 3-5 minutes. You’ll get a creamy texture that’s much easier to apply than melted oil
  4. Comb through clean, dry hair and let sit for 30 minutes.
  5. Rinse hair and shampoo as normal.

This deep conditioning DIY hair mask recipe comes together in no time with just two simple ingredients: yogurt, and honey. If your hair is feeling dry, frizzy and brittle this will be one of your go-to hair masks. The fat from the yogurt will help moisturize and cleanse your scalp-make sure to buy full-fat yogurt.

Honey, specifically raw honey is an excellent, nourishing ingredient for your hair. The honey will seal in the moisture in your hair to keep it conditioned, which will reduce hair breakage and split ends.
