5 DIY Hair Masks Every Woman Should Try At Home

Hairfall, split-ends, limp hair? Be For Beauty has got you covered with these awesome DIY hair masks to try at home. True, these hair hacks take some time to show results, BUT they are budget friendly, easy-to-do and absolutely safe to try!

What you need: Mixing bowl, hair brush, disposable shower caps, cellophane paper, towels and fresh ingredients

1) To increase hair growth and reduce hairfall
Hairfall can often be a problem in rainy season. We suggest you try this: take 2 teaspoons of fenugreek seeds and make a fresh coarse powder. Add 2 tablespoons of yoghurt and blend well. Apply the paste with a brush on scalp through ends. Leave it for 20-30 minutes and then rinse off with cold water.

PS: The first time I tried it, I didn’t blend the seeds well, and the hair mask soon turned into disaster. Remember, it has to be a very fine, grained powder of fenugreek seeds.

2) To ease dry, brittle hair
Give a boost of nourishment to your mane with homemade mayonnaise (it has amino acids that rebuild hair structure) with egg yolks, vinegar and oil. Massage about ½ cup of mayo on your scalp and length . This can get a bit messy so keep a towel around you. When done, wrap your hair in cellophane that you can toss out later. Wash it off and shampoo hair as usual.

PS: Never use flavoured or store bought mayonnaise. Make your own mayo at home, it’s super simple and do this hack in your bathroom to avoid an egg of a mess in your home.

3)To boost hair shine
Peppercorn is every Indian kitchen’s must have and a great ingredient to hydrate your hair and lend a long, lasting shine. Start off by taking 2 teaspoons of corns and blending them with half cup, fresh lime juice. Keep blending till it forms a smooth paste. Use a hairbrush for it to evenly cover your strands. Cover your head with a hot towel for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with water for lustrous hair.

PS: Since this has lime juice in it, I don’t recommend keeping it beyond 20 minutes. If you have a very sensitive scalp, just use this concoction on the length of your strands.

4) To reduce frizz and flyaways
A dampener on rainy days is to see your hair out of action. To avoid the worst of humidity, make your own conditioner. Chamomile tea actually reduces frizz with a quick rinse. Put a few tea bags of chamomile tea in a pot of water. Bring it to boil and store in a bottle. Use the concoction after a shampoo.

PS: This is a very gradual process. Chamomile has a lot of good health and wellness properties, and will bring in effective results with time.

5) To get rid of dandruff
The wondrous flower of hibiscus is great for getting rid of dandruff and premature greying too. Make a paste by grinding a few hibiscus flowers in combination with coconut oil. Give yourself a head massage from time to time to see a difference.

PS: It’s always more thorough if you ask someone else to give you a head massage. To make the most of a hair massage, keep your thumbs rooted as you move the tip of your fingers from the middle to the front of your head.
