3 Honey Masks to Protect Your Hair from Damage

Have you been struggling with bad hair days for way too long? Then perhaps, you are suffering from damaged hair. This is a condition that will not reverse on its own. You need to work on damaged hair in order to get it back into its original state. Hair is supposed to be smooth, silky and soft. If your hair has become dry, frizzy and coarse, then this is a problem that you need to take care of as soon as possible. If you do not address this problem, then you could possibly end up experiencing significant hair loss in the near future.

There is no one particular way of solving the problem of damaged hair. In fact, there are numerous strategies that you can try out. According to our research, the best strategies for treating damaged hair are the ones that are dependent on natural ingredients. In other words, we are recommending a holistic hair care treatment for your damaged hair. The use of natural hair remedies such as homemade hair masks is highly beneficial for your hair. Not only are these hair masks effective in nourishing your hair and restoring the moisture levels, but they are also free from the side effects that are commonly associated with synthetic products.

If you are planning on applying a hair mask on a weekly basis, then there are plenty of options available for you to explore. Hair masks can be created with a plethora of natural ingredients. Among all of those ingredients, pure honey is one that you should take into serious consideration. Several studies on the effects of pure honey on hair have been conducted over the past few decades. Nearly all of those studies show that honey has plenty to offer to your hair including increased hair growth. Here are three honey hair masks that you can try out:

1) Olive Oil and Honey Hair Mask

This recipe requires half a cup of honey, a quarter of a cup of extra virgin olive oil and a quarter of a cup of butter milk. Start by mixing the three ingredients to create a consistent blend. You need to make sure that the mixture is frothy. Once the mixture is ready, you can directly apply it to your hair. Smear it across the length of your hair strands.

Keep the mixture on your hair for the better part of half an hour. Since the mixture is more of a liquid than a paste, you could prevent it from dripping by wearing a plastic shower cap. When it is time to rinse off the mixture, add 4 tablespoons of honey into a mug of water and use this concoction to wash off the hair mask.

2) Banana and Honey Hair Mask

Bananas and honey are a match made in heaven. They taste good and they are great for your hair. For this recipe, you need to collect 2 ripe bananas, half a cup of honey and about a quarter of a cup of olive oil.

The reason why the olive oil has been added to this recipe is because it prevents the sugary bananas from sticking to your hair. If you find yourself in a sticky situation, increase the quantity of olive oil in the mixture. During preparation, blend all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Apply the mixture on your hair and scalp evenly. Let the mixture rest for about 20 minutes. To make sure that you don’t create a mess, wear a shower cap.

Once the 20 minutes are up, wash off the mixture under running water (preferably cold running water). While you are cleaning your hair, use a fragrant shampoo. Comb through the hair to make sure that there are no banana chunks stuck in between the hair strands. For a final rinse, wash your hair with a mixture of honey water. Dry your hair without using a blow dryer after you are done washing it.

3) Egg and Honey Hair Mask

This is the simplest of the three hair masks in this list, but it is probably the most effective of the lot. The reason for that is because eggs provide scalp with a ton of proteins that the hair needs for growth and repair.

You just need 2 eggs and a cup of honey for this recipe. Beat the two eggs and combine it with the honey. Apply the mixture on your hair for around 20 minutes. Use a plastic shower wrap to avoid making a mess. When you are washing your hair, be sure to use a fragrant shampoo that will get rid of the odour of eggs. Once again, finish off the wash by rinsing your hair with the honey water mixture. Comb your hair and dry it in the open air.
