Homemade Hair Masks

I must say that it took me a while till I finally have time to write another post. I literarly survived this week, working 45 hours and doing home decorations. I missed blogging so much, missed your posts, and I am so glad that I am back. The next week I will share more posts concerning what I’ve done this week, mostly home decor, so be prepared for some spam :).

In my previous post I said that I tried some hair masks which I very much like, and since some people really got interested, I am going to dedicate this post to hair masks.

First of all, I recommend to know exactly what type of hair you have. Because this influence a lot the type of products you can use, and your daily styling routine too, as well as the types of masks. Do you have straight, wavy or curly hair, oily, limp, lifeless, frizzy and so on? Also depends which natural color do your hair have. In my case I have very long straight hair. The natural color is dark brown (never colored my hair). I want my hair to be more strong, because it brokes so easy and is very soft. I prefer a very dark shiny color, therefore I do a mask for that on a monthly basis.

Here are some of them I am using regularly (I usually write everything down, when I did the mask and what was it, because it’s important not to exceed, and to remember when exactly you did it).

For shiny hair I recommend the coconut oil hair treatment (my favorite). It is so simple and you see the results right away. The coconut oil is not so expensive and you can find it in big markets or chinese shops (bought mine from Hong Kong Shop in Linz, for like 4 euros). So, we warm the coconut oil and apply on hair strands (more on dry ends). Let it stay for 30 min and wash with shampoo. I apply it everytime I wash my hair, it’s recommended to do it 2-3 times a week. The hair are so soft and shiny after. Some other oils I happily use are argan oil and castor oil using the same procedure (they also have great effects).

How to darken hair naturally

I need to darken my hair in summer because of the sun. I am doing it either with coffe or black tea. I tried them both, and both are great. Make a pot with coffe or tea. Wait until completely cold. Wash hair, rinse and wipe (stay with hair in the pot with essence, and I believe that this is the most annoying but the effort is worth it). Wash hair and apply conditioner. Do this once a month.

Another mask I am using to stimulate hair growth and to add an overall shine is the cinnamon mask. You need 4 tablespoons of warm olive oil to combine with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Apply on the scalp and massage. Leave it on for 10-15 min. Rinse off with shampoo.

Beside masks I am using everyday protecting oils and spray. I recommend to use different ones, because as my friend told me, hair get used to them and do not have an effect anymore. I am using hair spray from John Frieda and oil from Gliss Kur.

Thanks to https://thegreyeye.wordpress.com/ for the interest and I really hope that you all can use some tips for yourself.

Wish you a nice Sunday!!
