Every year, people with long hair all have the same problem; no matter how much you moisturize, your hair will get dry if you live in a cold and dry winter environment.
Having healthy, moisturized hair is a coveted quality, with many people having a hard to preventing snags, hair loss, split ends, dandruff, and so many more things that can come hand in hand with having a dry scalp and dry hair. Without wanting to spend a fortune on some thick deep conditioning treatment, many people ask the same question: is there a quicker, cheaper way to prevent dryness?
With the occasional home remedy going viral on the internet for clearer pores and fewer wrinkles, hair masks rarely talk about. With most people’s access to the very ingredients needed to create your own hair mask to prevent dryness, this method is something that is available to all for cheap and can be an easy at-home activity to do in-between those salon sessions when your hair needs some rejuvenation.
If your hair is dry and lacking shine, this is the kind of mask you want to go for. Coconut oil is perfect for moisturizing hair because it softens the hair while preventing breakage. This mask will easily penetrate hair to allow it to reap all the benefits of the ingredients. Honey also naturally provides moisture and gives your hair an extra boost of hydration and gives you smoother hair and a soothed scalp.
Ok, we know it sounds kind of gross to mix all these things together, but we promise in terms of a hair mask; this recipe is a home run. This combination is a powerhouse on hair that is unusually dry and broken. Eggs have a high protein content to help your hair lock in moisture and keep the shine this mask will create. Like coconut oil, olive oil has fatty acids that coat your hair and seal it, protecting it from future heat, weather, and environmental damage.
Many people with dry hair often also deal with frizzy hair. Hair that isn’t moisturized can sometimes create frizz, especially with cold weathers and high winds, long and short hair alike can be easily susceptible to dryness and frizz. According to luxuryhair.com, “Bananas are secret wonders for hair conditioning. They are full of natural oils, potassium, carbohydrates, and vitamins, all of which help lock in moisture and help eliminate that annoying frizz”.
Everyone knows there are good and bad oils for your hair. When it comes to dandruff and oil, you can easily cleanse the scalp of dead skin and bring you back to the shine you were looking for. Getting rid of dandruff, in general, can be hard and can take a while to heal fully and clear up, but adding oil to your routine and backing it up with dandruff shampoo and conditioner can guarantee a clean soft scalp.
