Fall Hair Care: DIY Hair Masks

A strong, healthy body deserves strong, healthy hair to toss around with it. With all of the coloring, styling, and general stress we put our hair through on a daily basis, it’s tough to keep it looking and feeling as good as it should. BikiniBOD contains biotin to build strong locks at the root, but when your hair needs a little TLC, a homemade hair mask can provide extra nourishment for your overworked mane.

Concocting your mask will take you no further than your kitchen. Weekly hair masks work to moisturize damaged or dry locks, to alleviate an irritated scalp, or to balance the scalp’s pH level, and the all-natural ingredients mean you’re not adding in anything extra that could do unnecessary harm. An attention-grabbing hair flip is just an afternoon away, so stir up some goodness and revel in your fabulous new ‘do.

Use Honey and Coconut Oil for Dry Hair

If your hair is a little on the dry side naturally, or if excess chemical processing has left it less than lustrous, this mask will work wonders. Honey is a humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture, and coconut oil is extremely moisturizing. Combine the pair and prepare to say goodbye to split ends and breakage with the following remedy:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Mix ingredients together and apply all over hair, concentrating on mid-shaft to the ends. Leave on for 20-30 minutes, and rinse with warm water.

Try Brown Sugar and Olive Oil for Itchy or a Flaky Scalp

Dead skin cells and product build-up can result in undesirable flakiness and dryness. Brown sugar is a natural exfoliant that will eliminate any residue, and olive oil provides natural moisture. For an itchy scalp, add nourishment right at the root with this mix:

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Mix ingredients together to make a grainy paste. Gently massage onto scalp for 2-3 minutes, and rinse with warm water.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon is Great for Oily Hair

If your head feels slick before lunchtime, you may be experiencing an over-production of oil. Either a result of too much shampooing or just a normal imbalance, both the ACV and lemon in this mask help by correcting the pH level of the scalp and hair, neutralizing excessive oil production and leaving locks with all the shine and none of the extra grease.

  • ¼ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Shampoo and rinse as usual but do not use conditioner.
  • Mix ingredients and apply directly to the scalp. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and rinse with warm water.

The beautifying ingredients in BikiniBOD help you look and feel your best, but a little extra self-love never hurt anyone. A DIY hair mask is an excellent way to whisk yourself away for a little “Me Time” even if that “Me Time” is in your own bathroom with a handful of products from your kitchen cabinet. Prepare your hair for the chilly weather and take care of any dryness, flakiness or extra grease now. You’ll find it hard to cover up your gorgeousness when the winter hats come out to play!
