Learn How to Make this DIY Deep Conditioning Hair Mask! (This post was last updated on: 2/16/23.)
The pandemic and this post-pandemic time is really starting to take a toll on my hair! I know….so insignificant, who really cares?! My stylist is probably gonna kill me for posting these pics but I haven’t been able to see her in what 2 months? Uh! I usually get it dyed every 4 weeks like clockwork. The grays are popping out everywhere. And honestly, I can deal with that, but my hair is super dry, mainly from a bad decision on my part to see if blondes really do have more fun. The bleach totally wrecked my hair.
So I started thinking how can I make a deep conditioning hair mask at home, using only stuff I have on hand. Since we are trying to limit the number of times we go to the store, I didn’t want to have to go out to buy anything. I came up with this concoction and thought I would try it out.
Here’s my lovely before pic, sorry to my stylist, I love her and she tames my mane like nobody else can:
Recipe for DIY deep conditioning hair mask:
- 3 egg yolks
- 3 TBSP honey
- 4 TBSP coconut oil
How to make a DIY hair mask:
I whisked together my 3 ingredients. Then I wet my hair in the kitchen sink. Next I separated my hair into 3 sections and applied my homemade mask.
I clipped the sections of hair up and left the mask on for approx. 2 hours. Afterwards, I shampooed my hair as normal. I will link my sulfate free shampoo and conditioner below. My stylist recommends sulfate free products for colored hair.
And here are the results from my DIY hair mask:
After shampooing out the hair mask, I blow dried my hair. I didn’t add in any products. My hair feels so smooth and soft. I will definitely try this again. The only thing I would change for next time is that I will get a cheapo plastic shower cap so that it’s not dripping on me while it is processing.
