DIY Herbal Hair Mask at Home

There are many easily available ingredients for hair loss treatment at home that we don't know about. Thus, let’s look into some of the best DIY hair masks for all your biggest fears of hair loss, including damage and dryness.

#2: Neem and Honey Mask

DIY Natural Hair Keratin Treatment at Home

Keratin is a fibrous protein that protects your hair from external damage. Keratin is not only important for your hair but is also important for your body. Keratin treatment has become one of the most commonly used treatments for damaged hair. Here, we will see the natural method of keratin hair treatment at home using natural ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of coconut milk. It is rich in protein, which strengthens your hair.
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil. It moisturizes your hair.
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of gelatine powder. It forms the collagen that coats the hair, mimicking the smoothing effect of keratin.
  • A few drops of essential oils (like rosemary or lavender for additional scalp benefits and fragrance)

Instructions:

  • At first, gently heat the coconut milk without boiling it. This makes it easier to blend with other ingredients.
  • Next, sprinkle gelatine into the warm milk and stir until it dissolves completely. Gelatine’s proteins will bond with your hair, providing a protective coating.
  • Then, stir the olive oil and honey into the mix. This helps to moisturize and shine your hair, helping smooth frizz.
  • Let the mixture cool down. Then, add a few drops of your favourite essential oils for a nice scent.
  • Clean your hair with a gentle shampoo. Apply the mask evenly, covering all your hair. Use a brush or your hands to spread it well.
  • Wrap your hair in a shower cap or plastic wrap. This will trap heat and boost the mask's effectiveness.
  • Leave the mask on for about 30-40 minutes. It allows the ingredients to deeply nourish your hair.
  • Rinse your hair with lukewarm water and follow up with a conditioner to lock in the moisture.

This homemade treatment is a healthier, chemical-free way to improve your hair's look and feel. Though it won't straighten hair like professional keratin treatments, regular application can significantly improve hair texture, making it a worthy addition to your hair care routine.

Tips for Applying Herbal Hair Masks

1. Start with Clean Hair

Why? Applying masks to clean hair ensures that the nutrients and moisture can penetrate deeply without battling through layers of oil and build-up. Think of it as prepping your canvas before painting.

2. Section Your Hair

Divide your hair into sections. This doesn’t need to be salon-precise; just enough to ensure the mask is evenly distributed from roots to ends. It's like ensuring every bite of your sandwich has the perfect amount of filling.

3. Use Your Hands or a Brush

What's Best? Some people love the feel of applying masks with their fingertips, while others use a hair dye brush for even distribution. There’s no right or wrong here—just whatever feels right for you.

4. Focus on Problem Areas

Got dry ends but an oily scalp? Slather those ends generously and go easy on the scalp. Customizing your application ensures that you're addressing your hair's specific needs.

You can check this herbal mask to clean and cleanse your scalp. It’s a cleansing gel that cleans your scalp by exfoliating the scalp by removing the dead cells, and excess oil.

5. Don’t Forget the Scalp Massage

Massaging your scalp as you apply a mask stimulates blood circulation, promoting healthy hair growth. It also feels amazing. Plus, it’s a great way to de-stress. Think of it as a mini spa session.

6. Heat It Up

A Warm Touch: Gently heating the mask before application can help the nutrients penetrate more effectively. Wrapping your hair in a warm towel while the mask sits can amplify this effect. Just like warming lotion in your hands, it’s all about enhancing absorption.

7. Timing Is Everything

How Long? Follow the recommended time on your DIY recipe, but feel free to adjust based on your hair’s reaction. Some hair loves a quick 20-minute session, while others thrive on a longer, deep-conditioning soak.

8. Rinse Thoroughly

The Final Step: Make sure you rinse out the mask completely, using lukewarm water. It’s like ensuring you’ve washed off all the soap after a good scrub—clean, but not stripped.

9. Regularity Is Key

Make It a Habit: Consistency brings results. Incorporating herbal hair masks into your routine once a week or bi-weekly can lead to noticeable improvements over time.

10. Listen to Your Hair

Personalize Your Routine: Pay attention to how your hair responds after each treatment. Your hair will tell you what it likes- more moisture, less protein, or a different herb altogether. It’s all about tuning in and adapting.
