Here Are 5 DIY Hair Masks to Give a New Lease of Life to Your Tresses.
1. Hydrate Your Tresses with Avocado and Honey DIY Hair Mask
Whatever is your hair-dehydrating demon: sun overexposure, hard water, your trustworthy flat iron–nature’s sweetener can lend you a helping hand.
Honey is a natural humectant (moisturizer), therefore it attracts and locks in moisture. Crude honey is also used in treating seborrheic dermatitis, hair loss and to prevent relapse.
By adding avocado and olive oil to this hair mask, you’ll get the best DIY hair mask for damaged hair, that too at home for free.
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 to 2 tablespoon olive oil
- Mix all the ingredients.
- Apply this paste to your clean and damp hair.
- Gently massage for a few minutes.
- After 20 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water and shampoo.
You can also use egg yolk in place of avocado, which will replenish the keratin protein bonds that are attacked by UV rays.
Treat your hair with this honey-avocado hair mask once a month to see the results.
2. Egg Yolk and Milk for Damaged Hair
This is one of the best DIY hair masks for dry damaged hair and I just love it as it makes my unruly hair behave.
The fatty acids present in egg yolk fight dandruff and strengthens hair shaft. Milk will provide moisture to your hair and lemon juice will not let your hair become oil.
Don’t miss out on the benefits of lemon water to stay fit.

Coconut oil locks in the moisture without any petroleum-based ingredients found in many hydrating hair products.
Coconut water has also many skin and hair benefits, which you should know.
- 2 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Mix both the oils in a bowl.
- Coat the hair with this blend, especially on brittle ends.
- Now, wrap your mane into a bun and cover with a shower cap.
- Let it sit for 15-30 minutes.
- Then, rinse, shampoo and condition as usual.
4. DIY Hair Mask for Color Treated Hair
I recently bleached my hair and if you’re sailing in the same boat, you’ll understand that strange, dry feeling that comes after using artificial colors. To restore some moisture and regain my hair’s softness, I tried this DIY repairing hair mask with coconut oil, mayonnaise and avocado.
If you haven’t tried mayonnaise for your hair, then you should definitely give it a try now.
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (or substitute with olive oil)
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise or an egg
- ½ avocado (or substitute with banana)
- Plastic bag
- Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a fork.
- Mix them until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
- Then apply it on your hair, focusing on the ends.
- Work your way up but avoid the roots unless they’re extremely dry.
- After that cover your mane with a plastic bag for 30 minutes.

Use this mask only once in a fortnight to repair the damage done by hair coloring or bleaching.
