We are in the final weeks of summer! Chances are, your skin is glowing from the summer sun, but your hair might be dry thanks to those days relaxing by the pool and beach. As the weather gets cooler, your hair may continue to get dry, and could even experience significant damage.
But don’t worry! We are here with a quick fix to save your silky locks. We have a DIY hair treatment that will have your hair feeling rejuvenated and moisturized, not to mention silky and shiny.
This hair mask will help to moisturize your hair to make it look shiny and prevent breakage, and it will also help take care of that pesky dandruff. Best of all, this only has 3 ingredient that you likely already have at home, and it will be done in less than half an hour!
We won’t keep you waiting any longer. Here are the instructions for making your DIY hair mask.
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. white vinegar
- 1 whole raw egg
Crack the egg in a bowl and mix until scrambles. Add the olive oil and mix, and finally add the white vinegar. Whisk all of the ingredients together. If you have long hair, you may have to double the ingredients to make sure your whole hair is covered.
Place your head over a bathtub or large sink. Massage the mixture all over your hair with your hands, from your roots to the tips of your hair.
Put your hair in a shower cap to ensure the mixture doesn’t make a mess all over your floor. Let it sit for about 25 minutes.
Rinse out. If you feel your hair is still too greasy after rinsing it out, use a bit of light shampoo and tepid water, but do your best not to wash out the residue completely for at least 24 hours.
How Does This Hair Mask Promote Hair Health?
Olive oil has been used for centuries to moisturize skin and hair. It is packed with antioxidant vitamin E to help fight hair damage.
The white vinegar helps to balance the pH of your scalp. A basic pH can cause dry skin and dandruff.
The raw egg provides direct proteins, vitamins and minerals, and healthy fats, all of which are important for healthy hair.
Apply this mask to your hair at least once a week, and you will surely start noticing your hair transforming into the shiny locks you hoped for.
