Earlier this week, I noticed that my hair could use a little TLC.  I torture my hair with my blow dryer and flat iron, and it has been forever since I have had a trim.  I usually have to pile on a lot of hair serum and shine spray to make my hair look healthy and shiny.  Unfortunately, the look only lasts about half a day before I need to put more on.

Since I have been loving trying out do it yourself beauty recipes, I decided to try a home made hair mask.  I read up on a lot of ingredients which are good for hair.  Since there were so many great ingredients to choose from, I went with the ones that were already in my kitchen.

For this mask I used:

2 Tbsp Honey 2 Tbsp Olive Oil 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil 1 egg yolk 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

I have a lot of long, thick hair, so you may need only a fraction of this recipe.  I heated the honey, olive oil, and coconut oil in the microwave for about 20 seconds.  I then added the egg yolk and apple cider vinegar and mixed the whole thing up.

It was a tiny bit messy trying to pour this mask on my hair while I leaned over my bathroom sink, but not too bad.  I then combed through my hair and covered it with a plastic shower cap.  Next, I went about my business and left the hair mask on for 40 minutes.

I washed and conditioned my hair as I usually do.  Then, I followed by using a rinse of half apple cider vinegar half water.  I let my hair air dry.

I don't think my hair has ever felt so soft and I can't stop touching it.  Even my husband can feel the difference, so I know it's not just my imagination.  I have not put anything additional in my hair since using the mask and my hair has a shine that usually takes a lot of product to achieve.

I love figuring out better and less expensive solutions for everyday life!  I'm going to start using this hair mask at least twice a month from now on.

  1. Hi I have been making my own products for 3 months now. I love this hair mask. I have always since I was 16 used mayo or other in my hair. Now I am 54. Wish I would have known back then of making my baby wipes, laundry detergent. All household cleaning supplies. Thank you for your blog and recipes.
